We were joking around last week, that our Serval had the coronavirus.
He started sneezing constantly.
Like incredibly wet sneezes that would spray the area around him when he shot one off.
Then his breathing got really raspy.

He became extremely affectionate, which is completely unlike him.

He will let you pet him and will kiss you Until your smothered most days.
But Strictly only on his terms.

When he was sick he was crying for us.
Laying on us and "cleaning" us lol.
Didn't want to be left alone for any period of time.

It turns out He had an upper respiratory infection.
No idea how he got it.
But it passed and he's back to himself now.

Pretty sure WHO has already declared poets safe from the virus

How about story-tellers, are they safe too?

But just to put this bulldust to rest

March 13, 2020 Can My Pet Contract the Coronavirus?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the disease is spread to humans through person-to-person contact. There have been no reports of pets or livestock becoming ill or spreading the coronavirus in the U.S. Likewise, the World Health Organization has stated that there is no evidence that dogs or cats have become ill with this particular virus.

Thank you Mars

The only animal you should worry about is a ferret, we pass all kinds of respiratory disease back and forth. Just behave like you would if you had a sick child or vice versa.

Everything else, don't worry about it. Animals that have shown positive results of this disease are most likely doing so because they live with a sick person and they inhale the virus. The virus is there when swabbed so a positive test, usually in the low end if they dig deeper. The animal is not sick, the virus is not replicating and they will not pass it back to you.

The studies claiming that we pass it back and forth show some data in cats and maybe dogs but the data is not consistent or confirmed. All of these studies also state that additional studies are required because they have such small and inconsistent data sets. There are also too many variables in those studies with other routes not being accounted for that show we need way more data.

Don't stress, don't kill your pets, behave like you would with your kids. Wash your hands, use your germ pocket and don't forget to give them hugs.
