In September, a woman reported that her three cats were killed while she was away from her home in quarantine. And authorities in the cities of Chengdu and Wuxi have also killed cats after entering private residences, NPR reports.

The VCA Animal Hospitals website says COVID-19 can occur in pets, but “these cases are uncommon and appear to occur after exposure to infected human family members.”

And while there have been cases reported of mink spreading the virus to humans on farms in the Netherlands and Denmark, the World Organization for Animal Health says there have been no reported animal-to-human transmission cases linked to pets.
