The Jackson Co. Animal Shelter has closed their doors for cat intake.

The shelter announced on their Facebook page on Friday that no cats are allowed in or out of the shelter for two weeks.

This is due to a quarantine on a case of distemper.

Distemper is a virus in cats that is highly contagious and can be fatal.

There are multiple symptoms to look for:

Excessive sneezing

Runny nose

Discharge from eyes

Presumed headache



Loss of balance

Difficulty walking

Sudden onset of diarrhea


Refusal to eat



Reduced white blood cell count

We'll keep you posted when the quarantine is lifted.
