Yes this is real. Cats and ferrets among other animals are suseptible to the H1N1 virus.

I think I read it somewhere that some animals could get the virus too but they are not much affected with it. It's alarming that transmission came human which is very unusual.

Yeah, I know what you mean - especially since I cut off as much contact as possible with my pets when I'm sick. I don't even want to risk them catching a head cold of mine.

It should be true. I saw it reported elsewhere too. Tha cat in Iowa is famous. I hope it gets well soon! If humans can get swine flu, I don't see why animals can't. We have to work harder protecting ourselves and our fluffy ones now.
