Cat with swine flu may be feline first

November 05, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A 13-year-old cat has been infected with swine flu, veterinary and federal officials said. It is believed to be the first case of the H1N1 virus in a feline.

The cat was treated last week at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ames and has recovered, officials said. The veterinarian said two of the three people in the cat's home had flu-like symptoms before the cat became ill.
