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.

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. 😊 Sent from my iPad > On Nov 23, 2017, at 11:56 AM, Lorrie <felineres...@frontier.com> wrote: > > This is my experience too.
