Another Question.. Just want to be safe.

I was gathering up and storing Sylvester's old toys (that I cannot bear to get rid of). I was hoping that my new Savannah Cat might like a shot with them, but then a question came to mind concerning the health of my new kitten. Sylvester as many of you know passed away from Kidney Disease. Question? Is Kidney Disease communicable via the toys and bedding.

The last thing I want to do is to put my new kitten into harms way. Thanks in advance.

Not unless the kidney disease was caused by an infectious agent (virus, bacteria etc) I would not think so. I can't offhand think of anything that would be a problem...

Thanks for the quick feedback... He was always in 100 percent perfect health and then he basically went off a cliff in the last 6 months. The vet did not think it was caused by either based on the blood tests.

I also asked the vet if a Kidney Transplant would have worked and I was told that at his age and rapid degradation that he would not had been a good candidate.

We had a 9 yr old DSH die from renal failure. No infectious agent. I think you would be fine giving your new kitten the toys. I allowed our new kitten to play with Milo's toys and it was fine. Kinda made me feel better. I could not allow anyone to play with his Hootie ( little owl toy he adored) attached Hootie to Milo's scrap book.
