[ From getting in the way of a cat chasing a rabbit or a cat
  being chased by a dog ? :-) ]

I presume this is a disease carried by (and named after) cats, but also
carried by some other mammals (what do cats have in common with dogs
*and* rabbits ??).  Does it have a "real" name ?

In a study published last month at the Yale conference, the
Connecticut Department of Health reported that owning pets that can
carry ticks is a significant risk factor for Lyme disease (odds ratio
= 2.9, 95% CI = 1.2,6.9).

Most people don't "catch" the illness from their dogs, of course
(although dog-to-dog transmission occurs through contact with infected
urine).

        No doubt the study controlled for outdoor activities of the
pet owners - most dog owners probably spend more time walking in tick
habitat simply by virtue of walking their dog outdoors 2 or more times
daily, let alone the romps in the park.

I've read this of someone who died from liver failure.  My grandmother
died recently of a combination of COPD/hemolytic anemia; then a coma
followed by renal failure... while in the coma her breathing was
slow and extremely laboured, which was of course awful to listen to...
it was a wrenching two-day experience.  What causes that--the body's
struggle to continue breathing despite hypoxia?

A side question -- I have many questions about what precipitated her
death.  My grandfather is a simple man, and would not know the answers
to my questions.  If I were to contact the dr and ask things like what
caused the kidney failure, could he answer them or would he be bound
to privacy despite the fact my grandmother is dead?  Would he be likely
to not answer them because of fear of malpractice?  Understanding 'why'
is a very big part (for me) of acceptance.

It is usually due to the brain being poisoned by build up of metabolic
products that are not being handled by the body.  But there are many
different patterns of disordered breathing in the very ill.  Some
have one cause, some another.

I can't imagine the Doctor wouldn't answer questions for a near relative.
If it isn't too late, an autopsy is the best way to answer such questions.
