    Hi Everyone, a friend of mine has recently bought in a female cat (bengal), and it has had diarrhea from day one, after some tests the vet has diagnosed corona virus.
    Would it be safe for her to still breed from this girl?
    Thanks xx

    Yes but let her get over the diarrhoea first. Most cats have the corona virus at some stage.

    Thanks, once she gets over the diarrhea would she still be able to pass it on to her kittens?

    I had one of mine titre tested a few years ago before going to stud as the stud owner would not take her without it, I dont know all that much about it other than that

    From what I know, if she's still positive after having the kittens she can pass it on once they're around 6-7 weeks old.
