An animal charity intends to lift a ban on re-homing cats on a Kent estate after it was deemed too dangerous. The RSPCA had barred residents on the Stanhope Estate in Ashford from adopting the pets because of a high rate of illnesses and airgun attacks.

Apparently the RSPCA calls feline "distemper," or panleukopenia, "parvovirus" same as the dog disease. Odd. At least reason prevailed. Perhaps the cats can now be adopted and live longer, safer lives.

Feline panleukemia (or FPV), sometimes known as "feline distemper," is a highly contagious viral disease. Taxonomically speaking, it is a parvovirus related to the canine parvovirus that most people know as "parvo." Besides affecting members of the cat family, FPV can also affect other species including minks, ferrets, and raccoons.
Actually there are some vets. who use the Parvo snap test to test a cat for feline distemper, if no other clear signs exist
