A case of H1N1 has been confirmed in a cat.
You know that the anti-cat contingent will jump all over this. If you are ill, resist pulling your cat into bed along with the chicken soup while you recover. You don't want your friend to become ill. If you have cats (or any pets) and someone in your family has been ill with the flu, please avoid snuggling, sharing of plates and utensil, etc., just as you would with your children or other family members when one family member has been sick.
We have a responsibility to our pets when we are ill.
