Symptoms: Having taken over a human lap, the cat proceeds to spread in all directions. This may be accompanied by secondary symptoms such as high volume purring, drooling, kneading and snoring. The condition is highly contagious and several fungoid cats may infest a lap simultaneously.
Treatment: Topical treatment with proprietary anti-fungals is ineffective. Prompt treatment (as per Irritable Lap Syndrome) is required to alleviate the worst symptoms although in a number of cats, such treatment actually exacerbates the condition. This disorder manifests itself periodically throughout the affected cat’s life and there is no long-term cure.
