I just had a pretty young kitten (about 6 months old) die of a
viral lung infection. We got the kitten from a girl at my
husband's place of work, so we don't know what she may have been
exposed to, but the vet said the infection is caused by
overexposure to bird &/or bat dung. So be careful. It was a
painful way for her to die, very sad. Luckily I was holding
her, stroking her little body when she breathed her last breath.
sorry to bring everyone down, just be careful with birds!
