Panleukopenia claims 50 cats at N.C. shelter

At least 50 cats at a northeastern North Carolina animal shelter have died of panleukopenia since a kitten died of the disease in July. Kittens are especially susceptible to the virus, which spreads through feces, urine and bowls and is difficult to kill, said veterinarian Leigh Rigler, who has been helping the shelter diagnose and manage the virus.
