Then you’ll want to protect your feline friends from feline leukaemia virus – a fairly common, highly contagious and deadly disease. The virus is mostly spread by means of bite wounds, mutual grooming and the sharing of litter boxes.
Make sure your cats get their feline-leukaemia shots. Kittens should generally be vaccinated only twice, at nine and 12 weeks respectively.

If possible, limit your cat’s contact with other cats by keeping it indoors or within the boundaries of your property.
