Not really, but kinda. A couple days ago one of the nasty cats got out, and my wife went out to shoo it back in. When she grabbed the cat, the foul beast freaked out and clawed her up, and she fell into a thorn bush of some sort. She didn't think much of me t at the time, but woke up the next day with a fever and a red spot the size of a baseball. She went to the doctor and she's on two antibiotics, but it keeps getting bigger and nastier. She's going to have to go back to the doctor in the morning, and likely get put on IV antibiotics. Nasty stuff. She could use prayers.

Cat scratch fever is a REAL THING.

Blood poisoning as well.

Get her to the hospital NOW.

Prayers sent.

Had a buddy that caught the flesh eating disease from a new made in China workboot.
They marked his foot (like your wife) and waited a few hours to see if the inflamation/discolouration was progress ing and how fast.
They noticed it progressing and put my buddy on IV antibiotics and that got it under control.
He completely recovered with no lasting effects.
It looks like the inflamation is not progressing past the marks on her arm.
God bless for full recovery.

If anything even begins to look "not good," the docs are gonna hook her up - to some IV meds. Pseudomonas aeruginosa and MRSA are no light matter.

Looks very serious. I hope she can make a complete and rapid recovery. Was it caused from the cat scratches or the thorns?


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Hope she's doing better and still alive and well. I'd find a nice place in the garden for the cat!

My brother contracted "Cat Scratch Fever". I remember he said his lymph nodes swelled quite a bit.
