    How sad is that, "copy and paste" has to go from recognized propaganda sites to Russian media sites

    Poor, poor "copy and paste," as much as he tries, and he tries a lot, he just can't deliver anything real

    Deer also are carrying this disease. There are deer in Russia... many animals, including wild animal populations are carrying the disease and mutations can happen. The animal population can reinfect humans with new variants of the disease. Unless we vaccinate every living thing we are likely to find ourselves living with the disease forever. (Or better prediction, we will be living with the disease forevermore).
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    There has been an ongoing effort to end or massively restrict cats as pets, the #1 argument is that they are destroying bird populations.
    Trust in our leaders is collapsing as people wake up to how profoundly we have been betrayed.

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Experts warn continued evolution of virus in animals followed by transmission to humans ‘poses significant long-term risk to public health’

    Coronavirus can infect a wide range of species including cats, dogs, mink and other domesticated species, experts from the University of Minnesota said.

    In an editorial for the journal Virulence, they warned that continued evolution of the virus in animals followed by transmission to humans "poses a significant long-term risk to public health".

    "It is not unthinkable that vaccination or a cull of some domesticated animal species might be necessary to curb the spread of the infection," they wrote.

    Denmark's government culled millions of animals after it emerged hundreds of Covid-19 cases in the country were linked with virus variants.

    Kevin Tyler, editor-in-chief of Virulence, said: "Cats are asymptomatic but they are infected by it and they can infect humans with it.

    "The risk is that, as long as there are these reservoirs, that it starts to pass from animal to animal, and then starts to evolve animal-specific strains, but then they spill back into the human population and you end up essentially with a new virus which is related which causes the whole thing all over again."

    The scientists wrote: "Continued virus evolution in reservoir animal hosts, followed by spillback events into susceptible human hosts, poses a significant long-term risk to public health".

    "SARS-CoV-2 can infect a wide range of host species, including cats, dogs, and other wild and domesticated species and, hence, vaccination or culling of domesticated animals might be required to halt further virus evolution and spillback events.

    "While the vaccination campaigns against SARS-CoV-2/ Covid-19 are being rolled out worldwide, new virus variants are likely to continue to evolve that have the potential to sweep through the human population."

    They said that more transmissible virus strains require more people to be vaccinated to keep viruses under control.

    "Vaccination against a viral pathogen with such high prevalence globally is without precedent and we, therefore, have found ourselves in uncharted waters," they wrote.

    The scientists called on governments to consider cat culls as a way to reduce the evolution and spread of new Covid-19 variants.

    That why people who actually care about having cats as pets are advised to keep them indoors only.

    Somewhere between advised and bullied from what I hear.
