Hi, Cat Lovers. My husband and I considering adopting a third cat. Because of the pandemic, there are restrictions everywhere, which I understand but the long and short of it is cats go quickly, and there is no "browsing" the local shelters. However, I found a possible kitty with a rescue group that one of my cats came from. The director was not sure, though, if she would adopt him with a mate or alone. She finally decided she would adopt him alone - but he has developed ringworm. I know nothing about ringworm. How long does it take to resolve? and once it is resolved, does it return? I know it is highly contagious to other cats and to humans, so he cannot come home with me now even if we decide to adopt him...I just dont want a persistant health problem in my home that is real difficult to irradicate. Help!!
