Cats actually hold a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and a few can turn serious but not many. If felines were leading to too much sickness they might not need invaded our lives as well as they have. But you may still find people out there who do not like pet cats. When I first went to China about twenty years ago there have been very few felines coping with people and incredibly few wild felines. I was astonished because I've got cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like pet cats. But in China the individuals said cats taken disease and that was it. I think that might have something regarding that cat suffering you enter your vision. Not serious simply a slight problem for a week In case you were pregnant you'd to stay away from cats. I believe they were discussing toxoplasmosis, but if you get that whenever you are a youngster it will not affect your baby. In addition they said pet cats were soiled but I don't believe so. I believe felines are one of the cleanest dogs and cats you could have. I feel that originated from the cats getting rid of the rats and mice. Because rats are incredibly dirty pets then because the cats wiped out and ate them they'll also be dirty. A grubby by connection kind of thing. Also there have been some big sewer rats working round during the day. Once I saw a rat and a feline face off each other and the pet cat wasn't much bigger than the rat. They were about a foot apart staring one another out and the cat ran away. I'm not astonished the rat's pearly whites were bigger that the felines.
Then the nine lives of the humble pet cat who only wished to help mankind by killing rodents that transported disease took a serious change for the even worse during the dark ages. Where witch hunts and using at the stake were the norm. Somebody who didn't like felines somehow connected these to witches and they were burnt at the stake with there owners. How they made that connection I'll never know. It started off with Pope Gregory IX in the 1232 who deemed the normal house kitty as diabolical. Then to make matters worse in1484 along came the greatest feline killer ever, Pope Innocent VIII, who decreed something along the lines of all cats originated from hell and should came back to the fires of hell by hearth. Cats were mercilessly prosecuted and were burnt so they would go back to the fires of hell. It really is amazing any survived because if you were caught with a cat you were burnt mutually. I still go to cathedral and sometimes I just wonder why. And undoubtedly the Black Loss of life was in the background surviving and growing because there were no cats to eliminate the rats that taken the fleas that induced the disease. Then along came the cat's savior King Louis XIII of France, who in the 1630s repealed regulations and cats once again started to live. However they were still hated and killed for many ages after that. I don't know if the Black Death subsided but pet cats once again protected mankind from the diseases carried by rodents. As well as the famines due to mice plagues.
If this attitude towards cats dates back generations the other can understand why historians say the Black colored Death were only available in China. Where there are rats and no cats then your rats dominate and that would have been a precursor for the condition to get near people. Now as i get back to China there are still rats running around but not so many in the real estate estates. There are many down by the river. Also they employ a efficient rubbish tidy up system that retains the locations very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is accumulated everyday. That would also keep the rat human population down. And with so many discarded felines playing around the rats don't have much of a chance. I've never seen this but I think the government accumulates a whole lot of cats. There used to be colonies of stray felines surviving in some places however now I don't see them any longer.
