It seems to me that cats really feel when a person is sick and there is no point in chasing them away from themselves. Especially if it is a cold that is not dangerous for animals.

And about parrots I was also always interested in this question. Here I also read a lot of useful information, but again the opinions here were divided into 2 camps. But I never risked the health of my parrots and just had less contact with them when I was sick.
