Feline spongiform encephalopathy is a disease that affects the brains and livers of felines. It is caused by proteins called prions.

Disease[]

Feline spongiform encephalopathy (FSE) is a prion disease thought to be related to Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). This disease is known to affect domestic and captive feline species. Lezmi S. et al. (2003), suggested that this infectious agent might be spread by both haematogenous and nervous pathways. Like BSE, this disease can take several years to develop. It is probable, but not proven, that the affected animals contract the disease by eating contaminated bovine meat.
