Angry Moving house and want to leave parvo behind

We lost two puppies this week to parvo (16 week Basset and 8 week Lab).
We are moving house in about 3 weeks time and want to make sure we don't bring this horrible infection with us.

We are disinfecting our current house with a bleach solution. We will use pool chlorine for the garden. I have destroyed the beds and toys the pups had and we have soaked their metal food dishes in a bleach solution as well. We will also disinfect shoes. I am however not sure about clothing - any advise on that would be helpful.

I am also not sure about our cat. I know cats can't get parvo or carry it, however he was in the area where the puppies got sick and they did play with him a lot - licking him and nipping his ears. Is there a danger that he may have the virus on his paws or fur? If so what can we do to disinfect him? i spoke to a vet about this and he was of the opinion that this should not be a big danger but I would like some other opinions. We don't want to introduce a new puppy to a new home and have it get sick because we brought the virus with us.

Any words of wisdom from users who have experience with this would be appreciated.

Thanks for reading.
Marc

Contact time is very important when sterilizing surfaces for resistant viruses... be sure you let surfaces soak in bleach (diluted is fine) up to 15 minutes. Pool chlorine in the yard will likely do very little, but at least pick up each and every shred of stool around and possibly even rake off the top half inch to inch of soil where puppies have been. Clothes going through a laundry cycle with bleach are fairly sterile after. Soles of shoes should sit in diluted bleach solution for 15 minutes at least. That should about cover it. Cat feed get licked off daily by cats and will likely have very little if any virus in a few days.
