Hey Macarena, I've been searching the internet, and evidently it's relatively new that they've been associating the bartonella with diseases in cats. There's not a lot of information. Mostly what I've read said they've found that treating the bartonella has helped with chronic eye conditions

I agree Tad. If you adopt or take in a cat that has ever been exposed to another cat you really have no idea. My opinion is vaccinate your cats/kittens when you get them, and hope for the best. If someone gets sick, test. If positive, treat as best you can. I don't think there's any way you can

That's why I say don't bother testing. There's no telling how many have been put down because they tested positive when they could have just been exposed and would havetested negative 90 days later. Also, there's no telling how many they've adopted that are positive because they tested negative
