Cat Scratch Fever

Cat Scratch FeverCat Scratch Fever is caused by a bite or scratch from a cat. It can affect humans or cats, but it causes no symptoms in cats. In humans, symptoms can include skin rash, fatigue, loss of appetite, fever, or headache. Cat Scratch Disease is not fatal for cats or humans, so it normally does not require treatment, but if symptoms linger, you should consult your doctor.
