Cat Scratch fever, is the most common disease that is spread from cats to humans. A scratch or bite from a sick cat can cause flu like symptoms. Salmonella may be spread to humans through kitty litter. Rabies is the most dangerous of all zoonotic diseases. This is why it is very important to have your cat vaccinated. Be very cautious with taking in a feral cat. Get him checked out by a vet immediately before getting him comfortable with cat beds and cat accessories. ┬áCommon sense hygiene and continuous kitty litter cleaning will spare cat owners from most threats. Remember you’re far more likely to catch a disease from another person than from a cat. Keeping your cat indoors and in a clean environment will help your cat stay healthy. Clean your kitty litter regularly and keep up with shots and regular checkups.
