shedding the coronavirus

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have gotten a lot of emails of different opinions about Kiki. How would I know if she is shedding the virus and should I just take the clumps out or do I need to clean the entire box? When I clean her litter box I just use dish soap and hot water. Is that OK? How can I reduce her stress level? What stresses cats out? I want to do everything right to prevent further sickness and she is our first animal so I advice. Thank you so much.

feliway helps many cats lower stress, as does rescue remedy. that latter can often be found at human health food stores as well as pet stores. i think amazon is a good source for the feliway, until you find out if it helps... you don't want to buy in bulk until you're sure it's worth it.

"shedding" is usually the term used to describe the cat geting rid of the coronavirus, or any other virus for that matter. Once a cat is infected with coronavirus they are persistently infected which means that it nevers goes away. Most cats, especially those from a breeder or shelter, have the coronavirus. Not all cats that have the coronovirus will develop FIP, it's kind of luck of the draw.

but it's recommended that you clean a litterbox completely every 6 weeks and yes, I use dish soap so that's fine for cleaning
