sad  I've just figured out something I've dreaded to face: my new kitten is making me sick!  I have had serious post nasal drip ever since I've had him, and now I am feverish.  I have had cats before, but I've never been sick like this.  I am a new resident of China (8 mos.), having moved here from the U.S. He scratched me when I first got him, and then I became sick.  He has since gotten his injection from the vet, and I am receieving a battery of 5 shots to prevent me from getting any animal diseases.  Could I be suffering from these injections as well?

I'm sorry to hear that you're having issues with your new kitten. Is the area red where you were scratched? Have you been checked for Cat Scratch Fever?

Perhaps having a cat added to possible blooming allergies seeing since you just moved out of the states. Allergies can take a while to develop or hit like a brick.
