Is ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ a Real Thing?
After my cat, Bob, accidentally, punctured my thumb with her claw, my thumb started THROBBING!! It hurt from the tip of my thumb to my wrist. So, I brought it up on the air.
Little did I know, I might have Cat Scratch Fever! What??? That's a real thing? Apparently it is!
As my thumb gets worse, I decided to do some research, this is what I found out.
Our listeners have spoken!
It looks like they are right!!
So, yeah, it's a real thing! It CAN be very serious. If you have been scratched or bitten by a cat and after, experience a fever, headache, fatigue, or have tender limp nodes, seek medical attention. I am!!!
Wish me luck. I'll keep you posted!
But, while we wait on the results.....enjoy!
