Pets and SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19)

A recent study done on five cats in China seems to indicate that SARs-CoV-2 can be transmitted via respiratory droplets to other cats. This work is yet to be peer-reviewed to assess how reliable the information is, although experts do think the findings were credible.
