Pulling Health Records Saved Kittens @ Kill Shelters
Katie is an active-duty Army Wife with five children and a husband who is often deployed. In her spare time she saves kittens from euthanasia lists from kill shelters around Florida (see Katie's Nest on FB). When her son experienced horrible allergies a couple of years ago, she took him to the allergist for allergy tests. A phone call later stated that he was allergic to cats, which did not make sense to the family since nobody else was allergic and would mean the family could no longer save kittens. Katie pulled the file, wanting to get another opinion. However, the test in the file had a different boys name in it. Later is was determined that their son was allergic to strawberries, not cats. The family was relieved - another good reason to pull your file and see what is in it!
