Some big cats at one of the zoos, I believe it was the Bronx zoo, caught it. They think a keeper had it and contaminated the food. There really is no other way unless one had been anesthetized for a procedure. Bird flu shows up occasionally in tigers at a sanctuary in Thailand by way of contaminated poultry.I'm so confused, I swear I thought there was already news of both a cat and a dog (a pug if i remember correctly?) testing positive for corvid19?? or was it just coronavirus?
I've been dreading something like this. I'm afraid poorly informed people may abandon their cats for fear they can transmit the virus to their owners.
This is the USDA page showing confirmed cases in cats and dogs in the United States:
Yes, cats get the virus from their owners, and there are no known cases of transmission from cats to humans. My comment was simply that they don't appear to get it from their owners very often, considering the very large number of cats that have been exposed so far, so I think the risk to cats is low. I wasn't responding to lavishsqualor's comment about people being afraid of getting it from their cats.The link I gave said that the cat got the virus from its owners and that cats have not transmitted the virus to humans so far.
Several cats I follow on Instagram have had their own masks made! They look super cute, lol. I don't know how on earth I'd get one on Toffee or Fudge though. Very disappointed they wouldn't tolerate the lion mane I'd got them for Halloween last yearMasks. For cats. Someone, please, make this a real thing. Then you have to make sure that cats wear them and will distance from each other, and from people.
