Description:This photograph depicts a woman holding a domestic cat; cats are highly susceptible to plague infection and frequently die of the disease.
Swelling of the submaxillary nodes, or buboes, are common and prominent among feline victims of plague. Domestic cats are readily infected by fleas, or from eating infected wild rodents. Cats may serve as a zoonotic source of infection passing on the disease to human beings in their domestic environments.
