What does 아픈 and 아프기 mean?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LydiaYaris

아픈 basically means (or refers to being) Hurt. 아픈기 is (being) sick. So 아픈 = Hurt , 아픈기= Sick

Does it mean I’ll like disgusting or ill like they have a cold?

like they have a cold.

But the 은 topic marker also implies 'generally.' So its saying "In general, animals are ill"
