Question Help please ~

I've adpoted 3 kittens this week - all of them from different people.

I really need to know..

First, what are the odds of one of them having a transmittable disease if their mom was OK and they never went outside?

Second, I made the mistake of letting the two first kittens meet with my resident cat. So now I consider all of them potentially sick. The last kitten I adopted is 'quarantined' in the basement (don't worry, he has everything he needs). So my 2nd question is: I'd like to move this last kitten to my room as the one who is currently there does well outside of it. The only form of cleaning I did was to vaccum the whole floor of my room with a HEPA vaccum and washed it. Could there be anything left of the cat that was in my room (potentially sick) that could harm the 'clean' kitten? I've read that FeLV or one of those diseases is transmittable by hair so I'm very worried right now.

Thanks ~

PS:I am planning on taking all of my cats to the vet eventually.

basically you should take to a vet and then hope for the best.

Innova EVO, Instincts,Wellness are the better brands of pet food

I agree. The best thing is to take the cats to the vet. Only they can let you know for sure. They should be dewormed and vaccinated. Even if they don't go outside, they can still catch worms and disease.

Hi ! Warmest welcome to you and gang! And concats for the new additions !

I agree with Alex and Katrine !

Let the vet rule out all possibilities.

Keep them separated before everything becomes clear. Cleaning and vacuuming are essential,as well as deworming and giving them shots - even with healthy cats, as Katrine has said indoor cats can also get worms or sick.

Basically the vet should give them basic kitten shots and tell you about when to take them in. One thing to be wary on with vets is diet, most vets push lower quality brands that give them kickbacks/ect, Iams,S/D science diet,ect.


better foods for cats then these are Innova EVO, Instincts, Wellness,and Natures Logic


Keep them indoor only, cats are safer indoors.

Please don't de claw, its a horrible thing, believe me.
