Just to chime in quickly, there was a confirmed case in Iowa back in
November of a cat that contracted H1N1, but also 2 ferrets who did not
survive. Here is a little more on this from Nov. 5 as I had just looked it
up. It was a little concerning as this occurred not too far down the might
Misses-sloppy from where I live here in Wisconsin.
