This just in: the first reported case of a feline with swine flu!
(Note: this isn’t him. But it’s the photo that was used, so let’s pretend it is.)
Important facts you need to know about this outbreak:
1. The cat is 13 years old and from Iowa.
2. He has recovered.
3. He probably caught it from his humans, but no one can be sure. (damn humans!)
4. Two ferrets have also had swine flu, but they died. (cats rule, ferrets drool.)
Special thanks to the lovely Rachel Shukert, who alerted me of this disturbing trend in flu news.
