If you’re having the symptoms of the swine flu, you’re going to have to take more precaution than you realized. This time, instead of just worrying about your human family members, you have to worry about your pets, too. In this case, a 13-year-old cat in Iowa has caught swine flu from two of the three humans in its family. Is no pet safe?
While swine flu hasn’t jumped to dogs, the fact that it’s jumped to cats and ferrets is kind of disturbing. Is there no creature that the flu doesn’t touch? Do we need to start worrying about horse flu or mule flu or goat flu or ant flu jumping species to the human population, too?
The good news is the cat recovered from swine flu nicely. If an old cat can make it through the flu epidemic, why are we so worried about swine flu again? I mean, it’s just another seasonal flu epidemic, people. It’s not Captain Trips!
