Can A Cat Catch The Flu From A Human?

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
posted by Jim Murphy

CAT FLUECats can catch the flu but usually not from a human. The reason for this is because the particular viral strain doesn’t cause the severe immune system response that it causes in humans. Like most mammals, there is a particular  strain of the virus that’s called feline influenza. This does cause severe flu symptoms in all types of cats. We cannot catch the flu from a cat and they can’t catch it from us.  Most cats get vaccinated against this on their first visit to the vet. Humane societies do it onsite along with the other necessary vaccinations.

Remember, your pets count!
