With the outbreak of bird flu in Asia, what are the chances of my rabbit catching bird flu?

Hi Scared Billy,
Stop worrying. Rabbits don’t catch bird flu. They can catch colds, cholera , AIDS and even baseballs, but they never catch bird flu.
Bird flu only infects birds, poultry animals and fowl.
Once the flu infects a rabbit, it becomes a rabbit flu and not a bird flu anymore. The change in disease’s name, according to medical journals, is a process called name-calling.
Which can be a form of social disease if you do it to your neighbor.
