Mask-wearing cat becomes internet star during coronavirus


Photos of cute animals never fail to brighten up anyone's day, and especially so in these trying times.

As pet owners put on protective gear to brave the outdoors during the coronavirus outbreak, they made sure that their furkids were suited up too.

One cat, in particular, has become an internet star lately, as pictures of the mask-wearing feline began circulating on social media.

The bicoloured cat was spotted on the streets of Guangdong, China, peering out of its makeshift mask as its owner shopped at a roadside stall.

As the photos reached other shores, a Twitter user in Japan was so charmed by them, he immortalised the kitty in tiny sculptures.

While the World Health Organisation has said there's no evidence that pets such as dogs and cats can be infected by the coronavirus, some pet owners still prefer to play it safe.

Dog owners in China scrambled to get their hands on pet face masks in recent weeks, according to media reports.

However, not all pets are as fortunate.

As the coronavirus spread, so did panic and fear among people.

Rumours that animals were exacerbating the spread of the virus have recently landed some pets in trouble.

In some parts of China, there were reports of people abandoning their dogs and cats, and in worse cases, throwing their furry companions out of their apartment windows to their deaths.
