It was small, cute and furry, and 7-year-old Pam Dixon fell in love. So when Pam and her older sister found the limping kitten outside, they brought it home, hoping to nurse it back to health. However, Pam and her siblings would soon need the nursing, WLWT in Cincinnati reported. A week after taking in the kitten, the two girls developed an itchy rash all over their bodies. Eventually, five of the six Dixon children got the rash. A veterinarian informed the Dixons that the cat had microsporum gypsum, a form of ringworm.
