Cat tests positive for coronavirus but vets warn that it isn’t necessarily COVID-19

The veterinary department of Liège’s university in Belgium believes the feline contracted coronavirus from its owner, suffering diarrhea, breathing difficulties and vomiting. Veterinarians are questioning the testing methods, urging pet owners to not abandon their companions. A federal spokesperson says it is an “isolated case” of “human-to-animal transmission, not the other way round.”
