Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello again, Shannon and welcome back to Just Answer!My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.I understand your concern, under the circumstances, and kudos to you for taking in this furbaby after just adopting your Figaro! If Figaro had already received his first round of vaccinations, he should be pretty well protected. However, if this new kitten did or does have a URI or other illness, Figaro might be exposed to it, if they are now playing together. A URI can be very contagious from cat to cat, in any case, but other, more serious illnesses are possible. Hopefully, this isn't the case, and once both kittens are seen by the vet in person and vaccinated, all should be well. It's nice that Figaro will have a companion, even though you didn't plan on having two kittens! : )I hope all will be well and please let me know how things are going with both kitties, if you're able. Thanks!
Hi Cher. Thank you so much. Are you a vet? I mean no offense at all, but I thought that I had selected the veterinary option. Since the kitten has been quarantined for 8 days, what is the likelihood that it is still in an incubation period for an infectious disease?
