It may surprise people that in domestic cats, for a long time, there has been a disease called feline coronavirus (FCoV) which is not the same as Covid-19.

Feline coronavirus is not zoonotic whereas Covid-19 is; therefore the same disease affects people and animals but in respect of feline coronavirus it only affects felines.
