Cat-scratch disease

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


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


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


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


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


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.
