Q Please advise if the feline herpes virus can be treated successfully. From what I understand, it's a chronic condition and it spreads easily.

Is this,or any other feline virus able to infect humans?I became ill around the same time my shelter adopted cat did and I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection generally transmitted by cats.......a week later I was told my cat had this herpes virus and the vet claims feline illnesses cannot transmit to humans.

I noticed as I was holding my cat yesterday when she yawned, she couldn't really open one side of her mouth. I think that she might have herpes. Could that affect me if she started licking my cheek? I think I should get this checked out don't you?
