    Cat might have scratched guinea pig

    We have barriers around the guinea pig cage to keep the cats away, but today I saw one of my kitten had squeezed his paw in and swatted at one of my guinea pigs. I quickly moved the cat but he still made contact. My piggy squeaked and started chattering his teeth. I took him out of the cage and checked him over, but didn't see signs of a scratch. He calmed down after I held him a little while but I'm still worried. Can guinea pigs get cat scratch fever?

    Not if he didn't get scratched. And the chances are pretty slim anyway, even if he did.
