Cat Contracts Swine Flu

According to the AVMA, the first known case of a cat coming down with H1N1 (The Swine Flu) was just recently confirmed. The cat actually caught the flu from his infected human family (not the other way around.) So don't sneeze on your cat sons & daughters :)

It is unusual for most illnesses to jump between multiple species (and this strain has infected humans, pigs, birds, ferrets, and now felines, as well.) Tricksy little bug...
