This is getting so bad, even the animals are taking precautions.

Have you ever seen a cat with a mask on?

Found this story on

Photos on the Chinese social media app Weibo show pets – namely cats – wearing the makeshift masks, many of them made from traditional surgical masks. Owners are cutting holes in the material to accommodate the animal’s eyes while the rest of their face remains covered.

I hope the animals can breath tho…. ugh.  This is just horrible.

They had posted that even cats and dogs could contact this virus – but some are saying otherwise.

According to the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine:  “Coronaviruses occur in virtually every species of animal, including humans, and are commonly associated with unapparent or transient intestinal and respiratory infections. They tend to be very species-specific and cross-species transmission is uncommon,”

They say that the masks don’t really even help, because it doesn’t cover the face enough…there are still gaps the virus can sneak in.
