Evidently there are different types of bartonella. The bartonella my cats tested positive for was NOT hemobartonella, but I don't know what 'type' of bartonella it was. It caused inflammation/problems with their gums. tonya MaryChristine [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: check the archives,

I have two former wonderful foster cats that I've recently learned have died. Sassy - One died about a week ago, Sassy - she was a beautiful golden Persian, about 10 years old, delightful cat. Long story short - apparently Sassy got sick, and her owner also was ill and became wheelchair
