Kittens could give you a life-threatening disease with just a scratch, the CDC warns.

美国疾病防治中心提醒说,小猫的舔舐或抓咬都可能带给你危及生命的疾病。

A report published on Wednesday revealed 12,000 Americans a year succumb to 'cat-scratch disease', as it is officially known.

周三公布的报告显示,据官方数据,美国每年有1.2万人遭遇“猫抓病”。

It causes fever, fatigue, headaches, and swollen lymph nodes.

该病会引起发烧、疲劳、头痛和淋巴结肿大。

In extreme cases it can even cause brain swelling and heart infections.

在极端情况下,其甚至会导致脑肿胀和心脏感染。

Unfortunately, CDC researchers say the most cuddly felines - kittens - are the worst culprits.

CDC研究人员称,不幸的是,人们最想亲吻、最有保护欲的小猫是所有猫中“杀伤力”最大的。

In a bid to curb the number of outbreaks, officials are urging cat owners not to cuddle their pets, and to wash their hands as often as possible.

为了控制患病者的数量,CDC建议人们尽量不要亲吻宠物,并且尽可能多洗手。
