A case of plague has been found in a cat in Prineville. State Veterinarian, Dr. Emilio Debess says while it's rare, it is possible for domestic animals to get the disease from fleas. The cat in this case has been treated and is fine. Plague can be transferred to people through the fleas too. The best course of action for pets is a regular flea treatment. For people insect repellants work fine.
