STUDY CONFIRMS CATS CAN BECOME INFECTED WITH AND MAY TRANSMIT COVID-19 TO OTHER CATS

Here is the press release describing the important points from a new study that was just published. The study was conducted by a premier infectious disease research group at the Wisconsin veterinary school and demonstrated that cats are susceptible to infection by COVID virus from people and infected cats can spread the virus to other cats housed in close association (same housing unit). Infected cats shed virus from the respiratory tract (not the gastrointestinal tract) for 6 days.

The importance of these findings are highlighted near the bottom of the press release, including for shelter cats.
