Can cats catch diseases from one another?

Wednesday, April 17, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

The answer to this question is “yes.” A few weeks ago,  my cat Mollie developed an intestinal virus. She began vomiting and had a diarrhea for about four days. About four days later, I noticed that my younger cat Millie developed a diarrhea. There was no vomiting with Millie, just abnormal loose stools for about three days. Since my cats never got sick before, I’m convinced that Millie caught the virus that Mollie had.  If a cat is ten yards away from another cat with a disease, then the chances are that the disease will not be transmitted but when  cats greet each other, they normally sniff each others noses. Even if their noses do not touch, this could transmit the disease.

Remember your pets count!
