From the AVMA:\"During the pandemic, many Americans have become new pet owners, bringing home a dog or cat to keep them company and lift their spirits when stay-at-home orders were issued. “Pet owners should make sure they have identified a person or a facility that can care for their pets if they are hospitalized. Cats should be kept indoors, when possible, to prevent them from interacting with other animals or people. Kratt stressed that pet owners shouldn’t panic or consider abandoning their pets during the pandemic. See the article “Keeping Cats Healthy and Happy Indoors” on my website.
