Another Animal Question!

Jul 9, 2003

Can you catch and diseases/get cancners/HIV/AIDS anything...if a cat gives you oral sex...or saliva gets near your genitals?!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Well, no wonder people love their pets so much. A cat is giving you oral sex? Ill have to assume youre a woman or the cat would have to be a giant cougar? How did you teach him or her to do that? Have you been playing "hide the can nip" again?

To answer your question, no, you cannot acquire Human Immunodeficiency Virus (please note the "Human") from a feline (or canine for that matter). Cancers? No. Other diseases? Well, not likely, but if youre concerned, you can always call a veterinarian! Lets just hope your next pet isnt a dog, sheep, cow, or llama. Stay well, and consider getting a boyfriend, OK?

Dr. Bob

This just ain't right, Doc.
