ok maybe it's just me, but isnt "cat scratch fever" about venhereal diseases? getting infected by a "pussy"?

It's possible, but I think "cat scratch fever" actually refers to the feeling that he gets when he sees the ladies. It's a fever that he gets from the ladies. --Tony Feld (talk) 00:17, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
For Ted's sake, the song primarily refers to the real cat scratch fever (i.e. infections kiddies get from scratches), since the lyrics state that he was 10 years old when he first got it. Secondly, there is also the image of hot women (cats) scratching your back during sexual frenzy. In no way STD is meant, because otherwise he wouldn't ask for more. -- (talk) 17:08, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

When you listen to the riff, you know that Ted is a riff genious, and it does kind of sound like "Smoke on the Water". "Cat Scratch Fever" goes like this: A B C C A B C A B C C C B A A and "Smoke on the Water" goes like this: G Bb C G Bb Db C G Bb C Bb G. --Doy-doy people (talk) 21:16, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Image:Cat scratch fever cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Also, "Cat Scratch Fever" is featured in one of the Garfield movies, sung by Garfield himself —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:27, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
