Heard Prof. John Barry on the radio talk about CV and the problem of the animal reservoir. Meaning that even if we could extinguish CV it can be transmitted to and stored in animals and then transmitted back to humans.

Yeah.

This thing is a nasty, tricky virus.

I'm still deciding what the worst of it is. Right now I'm leaning toward it being slow enough that it lets some folks claim it is nothing.

I am not liking the growing reports of lasting damage in some people. Nor am I happy with the growing amount of kids being seriously ill.

It looks more and more like we will have to live with this thing forever.

Why?

Have only read of 1 anecdotal report, from a member on here.

Not proven to have been Covid, if I recall correctly. Could be wrong on that though.

Have you read of more reports of cats being proven to have come down with it?

Because people are stupid. Look at all the stuff here people believe with no proof at all.

It doesn't have to infect any cats for it to be bad for cats.

Now, as for the original question, No I don't think its that big of a problem unless we find out it infects farm animals. Rare, sporadic transmission to pets is not the same as an animal reservoir where it gets spread back and forth harmlessly and provides a way to re-infect humans.

I have heard from multiple sources online, medical - that cats can get it. To be nice I don't pay attention to anecdotal stories of "I'm sure I had the virus but I didn't get tested" "I just know my cat had it even though I have no evidence" etc. I dismiss all of that out of hand.

I can say my husband is a purple hippo, doesn't mean he is.
