As the coronavirus spreads throughout China, people are not only worried about the virus spreading to other parts of the world, but they’re also concerned if their cats could get sick from the coronavirus too.

Basically cats can catch the coronavirus through feces and airborne contaminants. Fatalities most often occur in cats who are young or have a weakened immune system.

The best way to keep the coronavirus from spreading to other cats is to clean the food and water dishes for your cat, regularly disinfect the cat’s living space and keep sick cats away from other cats in multi-cat households.
