    Coronavirus and cats, dogs and other animals

    1/21/2020 "Pets can catch coronaviruses and the infections can become severe. Sometimes the viruses can lead to deadly diseases. One can cause feline infectious peritonitis in cats and something called a pantropic canine coronavirus can infect cats and dogs, according to a 2011 study." - CNN Health

    I don't know of any, but I'm sure that it won't be long before we hear of one or more. "Opportunity in Crisis" is what will follow this tragic incident, along with those who will be afflicted.

    The most important thing for any of us, human or animal is our health. That isn't given to us by a vaccine. Please feed your animals as well as you can afford, or you'll be contributing to their ill health. Educate yourselves about pet food. Subscribe to these sites: truthaboutpetfood.com and poisonedpets.com and catfoodingredients.com

    Keep your animals safe inside, except under your watchful eye. You might even consider not going to dog parks. We are being advised to avoid crowds, so I think the same thing applies to dogs

    If you have an outdoor cat, you're already taking risks with your cat's life, because you've told yourself that it's a natural life for a feline. And almost everyday I read about missing cats, who wouldn't be missing if their guardians had treated them more like toddlers, which is really the extent of their ability to know the dangers that await. Would you let your toddler go outside alone, unsupervised, because they wanted to?

    Maybe you think they're smart enough to avoid vehicles. What about all those dead cats on the road?

    Anyway, the key is awareness and logic. I hope we can become better at using ours.

    Today I heard that our next door neighbor went to the airport at midnight to catch a flight to China.....for
    business reasons. Job or no job, I'd refuse to go.

    Let's be safe, and keep our loved ones safe, human and animal.
