About keeping cats in, and not cuddling or touching them. Really? Do they actually own a cat? My two are indoor but go into the garden. And Cheddar loves to be picked up and cuddled! No way will I stop that!

Have you actually read/ seen it? It doesn’t say that.

It does. I can't find it now. I think they've taken it down.

Found it again. I see it's only if you are symptomatic.

The advice from the BVA this morning says:
"Practise good hand hygiene, try and keep cats indoors.

"Avoid unnecessary contact with your pets, such as hugging or allowing them to lick your face, and do not touch other people's dogs when on walks."

The BVA were misquoted by the BBC
