—Mr. O. Bowen, of Liverpool, reports this rare case of infection of one of the lower animals from a human being. The cat was infected by a little boy, and for about two weeks had five or six distinct fits of coughing daily, similar in every respect to those exhibited by the boy, with expectoration of frothy mucus afterwards. Between the attacks the cat was bright and active, though not so much so as before, and lost flesh during its illness.
