The cause of the cat’s fungus
Currently, there are many types of mushrooms for cats, but the most popular are Microsporum Canis Trichophyton Mentagrophytes and Microsporum Gypseum. During a fungal infection, there are millions of microscopic spores that form around the hairs leading to infection. This is the main transmission agent for cats and other animals.
The fungus is highly contagious, the main route of transmission is body-to-body contact between cats. Most adult cats are less susceptible to disease than small cats due to their better resistance and immunity. Additionally, sick cats are also more likely to contract the fungus.
