The next bloodwork I had done was to check to see if I had something called Cat
Scratch Disease. Apparently, cats
may have a certain bacteria living underneath their claws that does not harm them, but when they scratch a person with their bacteria-infested claws, the person can become ill, and apparently can present with the symptoms I had. I knew for a fact that none of my cats had scratched me, but my doctor wanted to check for it since I owned cats.
