WCCO's Bridgette Bornstein reporting
A 13-year-old Iowa cat was believed to be the first confirmed case of H1N1 in a feline. It appears the cat got the virus from humans. Two of the three people in the home also had H1N1.
At the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley, preventing the spread of illness is always a top priority. And with news of this first confirmed H1NI case in a cat, staff is even more diligent about making sure visitors follow the hygiene rules.
