Feline distemper, or feline panleukopenia, is caused by feline parvovirus. The virus is extremely resilient and can survive for months or even years, being immune to many household disinfectants.
The virus is spread by the body fluids of infected cats. These are often harbored in litter boxes, bedding, food dishes, and water bowls. A mother can that’s infected can also spread the feline parvovirus to her nursing kittens. Fleas can spread the virus, too.
Symptoms of feline distemper include depression, weight loss, lethargy, vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, and bloody diarrhea. An infected cat or kitten might also bite itself in the hindquarters.
