Can rabbits catch a human cold/flu?

I have a bad cold/flu and I've been kinda scared that my buns will get sick, maybe I'm being silly, but I know this kinda stuff can be deadly for them, can this happen?

thanks for reading!

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

I doubt it. People and bunnies are very similar in something genetic (but we are to thousands of other species too) which is why they are so widely used fro experimentation but I don't think they can catch our virus'.
