Letter to the Scary Cats
In trying times like today, where everyone fears this highly contagious disease, we have dug a little deeper to get facts regarding Covid-19 and your beloved pet.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) released that it had found several dogs and cats (which includes domestic and bigger species like tigers) that was in contact with infected humans have tested positive for the Covid-19 strain. However, in experimental conditions it was found that cats and ferrets can only transmit the disease to other animals in the same species and that no evidence exist that they can infect humans.

In general, it is a good idea to just keep your household as hygienically clean as possible. Bath or groom your pets regularly. Wash their bedding, bowls and toys with warm water and soap and do not mix their supplies with your own.
