I am suffering from a case of Kitten Pox. Kitten Pox is what happens when you have two kittens who were nine weeks into barn cat training when they were adopted.

Little kitty looks all soft and fuzzy and harmless, yes? You just try picking up little kitty. Little kitty has excellent defense mechanisms called claws. They stick their little needles into your hand and hold on for dear life.

That was how I got infected with Kitten Pox. The symptoms are dreadful. Tiny scratches covering your hands that sting every time you wash with soap and water.

Next time you see a little cat that looks very inviting; you might not necessarily want to pick it up. You might regret it.
