A wormlike larva emerges from the egg, and then releases chemicals that prompt the spider to abandon weaving its familiar spiral web and instead spin its silk thread into a special pattern that will hold the cocoon in which the larva matures. Feline leukaemia virus requires close contact for transmission, so an indoor cat is not at risk. Cats carrying the virus may not have any symptoms or may have mouth ulcers or ‘snotty noses’ which never get better.

But racing, working and pleasure horses in the United States are being denied a peaceful end to their lives. I think the problem of immune suppression and other side effects is minimal compared to the benefits. They’ve been living with Muddy for 4 years now and nobody has gotten it from him.
