Can my cat catch my cold?


I’m in bed with a cold and the cat has decided to hang out with me, though not sure if that is sympathy or just a vested interested in lolling about on a warm and snuggly duvet. But, here’s the thing ... I am always cuddling and kissing the top of his head (euuugh, I hear you non-cat lovers say but I am unrepentant)so I was wondering if common cold germs can cross the species divide? If so, he’s got to be banished downstairs no matter how much he sulks.

    Thanks Kathy ... The Toof seems to have held up quite well under my illness.

    Having had cats all my life I am well used to just about every ailment they get and am usually right on the ball when they start with something. All the best ...
