They say if you have cats and you get Covid, you should minimize your contact with your cats. Try and have other members of the household care for them. That sort of thing. Which isn't particularly helpful advice for someone who lives alone. And I certainly wouldn't ask someone else to come into my home to care for my cats if I had an active case of Covid. Nor would I send potentially infected cats to a boarding facility.
With the omicron variant spreading like wildfire, more and more public health officials are saying that it's pretty much a certainty that sooner or later, almost everyone is going to get it. I'm very, very careful, but I hear that and it scares me.
This board is not very active these days. So I can't really rely on board members posting about this. So I'm asking those of you who DO come here: In your other contacts with cat owners, what have your heard about peoples' experiences? Do you know of any cat owners who have gotten Covid? How did their cats do? What kinds of help did they get from their veterinarians? How often do the cats become seriously ill vs. just a mild illness?
These are some of the kinds of questions I'm hoping to get real world answers to.
Anyone who has anything to share, please chime in.
