A cat wearing a face mask in order to avoid the recent coronavirus outbreak was spotted in China and has in recent days become popular on social media.
The photo shows a cat on a leash, protected by medical gear with two holes for its eyes. The animal looks perfectly calm and is not trying to take off the mask.
