Please be Aware of this. while the dog community is being tragically traumatized by this up to and including even exhibitions/ shows being cancelled. We in the cat community must watch our kitties just as fervently. 

and quoted from the article - In March 2016, the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory announced that the H3N2 strain had infected a group of cats in the Midwest.

And this - 
Cats infected with H3N2​ display signs of upper respiratory disease, including nasal discharge, congestion, malaise, lip smacking and excessive salivation.
