I always wondered about it when I took Tigger to the vet. I kept him in his 
carrier until we went into the exam room, but the vets never seemed concerned 
about spreading it to the other patients.

Thank you Lorrie,

So happy I joined this group.
I’ll keep the cat for a week, spoil him, not mix him with Other cat’s, And 
clean well after, The room will be left empty for 7 days after.
However, I won’t do this again,
Because I have other people’s cats in separate room and Won’t go through this 
again! ☺️☺️ I’ll even change my clothes when I go in and out, But sure that is 
NOT NECESSARY.
IF it was just my cat’s, I have three of my own, I wouldn’t be so neurotic. 😊
