As Jiro suddenly seems to have lost his appetite for pancakes and syrup, his dad knows something’s not right. The doctor quickly figures it out: Jiro has cat flu. Harmless, it’s true, and rapid recovery is common, but something about the diagnosis is odd. Aren’t cats the only ones who can catch cat flu? In beautifully abstracted images and with deep devotion to detail, illustrator Jon Frickey tells an almost commonplace story.
