Cats are capable of catching the flu, as well as upper respiratory infection caused by one of two viruses: feline herpesvirus or feline calicivirus. Cats of all ages are susceptible, but young and old kitties are particularly vulnerable because their immune systems are not as strong as cats in their prime.
If you suspect that your cat has the flu, symptoms to look out for include:
- Runny nose
- Loss of appetite and not drinking water
- Runny eyes and/or nose
- Trouble breathing
Call your veterinarian right away, and expect to bring in your fur baby for a checkup.
