A very quick post for Peeps fans.
It seems that cats are possible bird flu vectors, providing the vital link between birds and people.
“Cats eat birds and therefore can become infected by this virus and help it to mutate and adapt” to mammals, said Andrew Jeremijenko, who headed an influenza surveillance project for the Naval American Medical Research Unit in Indonesia until last March. “Maybe there is a role that cats are playing and we don’t understand it yet.”
I love it when life imitates art.
