I is for Infection – #AtoZChallenge

I seem to be starting all my entries with, “You know this, but you didn’t really know this!” Sorry about that. Please enjoy this selection from A Brief History of Space Cats, and the Care and Feeding Thereof by Sarah Ever.  Written by the main character from Space Cats from Space, these entries form a resource for feline companions to help them ease the transition from cat “owner” to their true role as caretaker and, possibly, human slave. Please enjoy!

And we’re back to nanites!

It is possible for felines to infect humans with their nanites. There is a delivery system through their claws, and the nanites are injected through the puncture in the skin. The process is quick and involves only a small bit of pain.

You may be familiar with being scratched by your cats. Most people who support felines in their household are. These casual encounters with a claw don’t usually result in nanite infections.

Revelation, on the other hand, is all about nanite infection. There seems to be a flaw in the nanites prepared for this purpose, however. I’ll get to that in the section on Revelation, so if you’re interested, feel free to jump ahead.

Accidental nanite infections are rare but do occur. In my case, I was infected by the team’s medical officer. Doug Line was infected by the security officer (with the intent to kill) but was saved by the nanites he received from me.

Ultimately, it’s complicated. Infection is something to address immediately, but going to human doctors will not provide much relief. There will soon be a directory of medical officers published by Blinky Fluffybutts. If you’d like more information on that or have a feline to be included on the list, please join the newsletter.
