Seemingly Innocent Cat Scratch Turns Into A Nightmare For This Traveler Who Was Almost Detained In Fiji For Ebola

by Daphnie

Crazy stories on Reddit are not new, but this one seems to take a couple of unexpected turns. We don't really think anything about it usually if we get scratched by a cat or dog if we're used to it.

You might think twice about that though after hearing about this story. A small harmless kitten scratch would turn out to be much more than just that.

Cat scratch fever seems to be something that people talk about but never have experienced or known anyone who has had it, but that's about to change. Who would've thought that this girl's mother's kitten would take her through this whirlwind of a trip after getting a little scratch from it?

This girl gets a small scratch from a new kitten and then goes on a trip to New Zealand with a stopover in Fiji, but the flight took a turn when she took sleeping pills for the flight but woke up in fear when she realized she'd been throwing up in her sleep for during the flight.

This probably sounds crazy, but we're going to give her all the credit and let her explain the story. Let's get into what exactly happened and why she threw up like that.

Here's the story.

I don't think many of us were expecting the story to go quite like that. There were a lot of details that went into it and clearly from the comments people are torn.

They aren't sure what exactly caused her symptoms and a lot didn't even know cat scratch fever was a real thing. This did bring out a whole bunch of throw-up stories though, which were pretty fun.

Have you ever experienced anything like this? Let us know.
