yes, it is contagious.will your other cats get it?? dedpnes. are they up to date on their vaccines? are they healthy, well fed, and stress free? all these things contribute to their coming down with it. Just as every human who is exposed to the common cold doesn't break with it, not every cat will break with it either.Do a little research on L-Lysine. it is an amino acid that you can get at pretty much any health food store or any store that sells supplements. It helps prevent the replication of the virus.heck, they even have prefilled doses of it you can buy
