Question by mariee64: Feline AIDS does anyone know if people can transfer the disease to another cat by being in contact?
with a cat who is a carrier. Such as petting the cat when you visit. Can you bring the disease home with you?
Have a 12 year old cat that has lost significant weight and test results were negative. But read that cats can have negative results in the end stage of illness. What do vets really know?
Answer by lisa_0521
FIV is not that easily transmitted. You cannot give it to your cat by petting an FIV affected cat. Nor can you bring the disease home with you.
I would look into another medical explanation for your cats weight loss.
Good luck and wishing your kitty well!
