More about cats (from the August 21, 2020 Livestream)
Q: "Do you like cats?"
Prof. Loh: "I think cats are cute. I guess.... yeah. Cats are cute. They don't seem to cause much trouble. I'm not so sure cats are that interested in me, though.... So, I'm just like, 'they are cats.' Oh, but let me tell you something about cats. It's related to COVID19. There are researchers who are getting fairly convinced that cats can actually spread COVID. COVID can go from people to cats, and then from cats to other cats, and then from cats back to people. This particular researcher advised me that if you have cats, then to be careful that they don't go outdoors and associated with other cats, otherwise you will have people catching COVID from their cats."

Just when we thought the trouble was kind of over.
