On Friday, Belgium’s public health department FPS broke the news about the first cat to be infected with coronavirus from her owner in Belgium.

Before testing positive for the virus, the cat showed symptoms such as having diarrhea, vomiting, and breathing difficulties.

“The veterinary medicine faculty in Liège reported that a coronavirus infection has been determined in a cat. The cat lived with her owner, who started showing symptoms of the virus a week before the cat did,” a statement read.

When the researchers examined the cat’s feces, they found that it had been infected with the coronavirus.

This was the first known case for a cat to have the virus.

So, are there other animals that were also infected with the virus?


Welcome to my bio everyone, my name is Nada. Ever since I was little, I have loved animals because they are so loving and kind. All they need is you attention, love, and care but I didn't understand them very well because I didn't get the chance to raise them. Well, That changed when my family and I got our first dog Rocky, a German Shepherd. Rocky was fun and loving with funny quirks. Being loyal and protective of us, he made me see the nature of a German Shepherd. Now, we have another German Shepherd named Mia. She is a wonderful dog and a rescue who just needed a second chance in life. Mia has long grown from being a terrified dog to the brave and caring German Shepherd that she is today. P.S: Here is a picture of our beautiful German Shepherd, Mia.
