Oregon cat first in U.S. to die from H1N1 swine flu

(KVAL CBS 13) LEBANON, Ore. — One week, Rhonda Rebmann’s niece had the flu.

The next, her 10-year-old tabby cat started showing respiratory symptoms. Buddy Lou died four days after she brought the cat to the family’s veterinarian, the first feline H1N1 death in the United States.

“It’s crazy,” said Rhonda Rebmann. “I would never have thought, never have thought a cat would have gotten this from a human.”
