  • So sneezing, coughing, watery nose, nasal discharge and I discharged and lethargy in this case, the cat's owner testing positive two.

  • But in the second case, none of the human members of the family have tested positive.

  • So how did happen?

  • There's possibly an increased risk if they were an indoor outdoor cats, so they were exposed to the outside environments to other people.

  • The good news The cats that I have been dealing with is completely back to normal health on it was just sick, with some mild symptoms for a few days and Dr Fauci saying pet owners don't need to panic.
