Cat-scratch disease (aka Cat-scratch Fever aka Bacillary Angiomatosis) is a serious medical condition (in spite of the stupid Ted Nugent song) which may affect as many as 22,000 people per year. It is caused when a cat scratches a person (often a child) and infects them with the bacterium Bartonella henselae.

It leads to lymphatic complications which can be fatal in immune compramized individuals and require surgery to remove infected lymph nodes in others.

Then there are the serious birth defects (and infections of immune compromised people) caused by the cat parasite Toxoplasma gondii.
