Homage to Catatonia

For the last few days, my cat Jessie has been distinctly under the weather. Her appetite is almost zero, she throws up at least once a day (with what little food she can spare), and she spends most of her time either on my lap or on the windowsill - not her normal perch, but perhaps the warmest place in the house. I took her to the vet, who said she didn't have a fever, and a blood test came back fine too, so for now I'm keeping her under close observation.

Now I, who am very seldom ill, find I am going down with the same symptoms. I haven't actually thrown up, and the window sill as yet holds no allure, but I'm headachy, lacking appetite, feeling bilious and maybe very slightly feverish.

Is this a) a sympathetic illness? b) a coincidental illness? c) the self-same illness, somehow transmitted from Jessie to me? All three seem equally likely to me at the moment.
