Summary

The 2008 case presented here of tularaemia in a cat and its owner occurred in an urban setting and was associated with animal contact, a relatively rare mode of transmission in Minnesota in recent years. Response to this case exemplified a ‘One Health’ approach involving pre-existing relationships, cooperation between multiple disciplines and laboratory infrastructure that facilitated information sharing.
