People have been on high alert due to the H1N1 for months now, but a new worry is surfacing.
For the first time a cat has been infected with the H1N1 virus which mostly likely caught the virus from its owners, who had flu symptoms. The cat and the owner have since recovered and the CDC says people are not likely to catch the flu from a pet, but that pets are more at risk of catching it from their owners.
