A rather scary article in the New York Times about the possibility that cats could spread the H5N1 avian flu. Not good news.
However, officials are saying that cats which "reside mainly inside a residence'' are not likely to cause a problem. Yeh, let's all remember that when the crazed maniacs are killing all the cats out of fear of avian flu.
Does any of this sound eerily familiar? Oh yes, the Black Death -- made even worse by the killing of the cats and dogs that would have eaten the rats that harbored the fleas that were the real carriers.
