Cats can spread coronavirus to other pets and must stay indoors with their self-isolating owners, scientists have warned.
New research suggests that cats can spread the deadly virus from one to another through their nose and mouth.
Researchers from Colorado State University have advised keeping cats indoors if a human in a household has become infected- because they could spread coronavirus to other cats.
They have also said that if a person with Covid-19 needs to be admitted to a hospital and has pet cats, the feline’s caretakers should know to observe social distancing as they would with a person.
The research conducted by Colorado State University said: “Infected pet cats should not be allowed to roam freely outdoors to prevent potential risk of spreading infection to other outdoor cats or wildlife.
“While neither species developed clinical disease in this study, cats shed infectious virus for up to five days and infected naive cats via direct contact, while dogs do not appear to shed virus.
“Thus if symptomatic humans follow appropriate quarantine procedures and stay home with their pets, there is minimal risk of a potentially exposed cat infecting another human.”
There are now hopes that cats’ immune systems could hold the key for new coronavirus vaccines.
This comes as deaths related to coronavirus surpassed one million globally.
After testing seven cats and three dogs that were injected with the virus, the research found that neither species appeared to get ill from Covid-19.
But cats’ immune systems stopped the moggies from being reinfected.
Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the research continued: “Resistance to reinfection holds promise that a vaccine strategy may protect cats and, by extension, humans.
Ridiculous! But people will believe it!
Good GAWD!!!!! These PSYCHOPATHS have gone beyond PSYCHOPATHIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What’s next in this complete MSM Craziness. If PCR tests are not even able to proof Covid…how on earth do they proof Covid in cats?

Does this not describe your psychopath description? “THIS know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness (religion) but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Psychopaths usually are atheistic, and believe they are divine, only they matter. That is a form of religion in… Read more »
