If this frame of mind towards cats goes back generations then one can understand why historians say the African american Death started in China. Where there are rats no cats then the rats dominate and that would have been a precursor for the disease to get near people. Now as i go back to China there are still rats playing around however, not so many in the enclosure estates. There are many down by the river. Also they employ a efficient rubbish clean up system that will keep the metropolitan areas very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is accumulated everyday. That could also keep the rat people down. And with so many discarded pet cats playing around the rats don't have much of the opportunity. I've never seen this but I suspect the government accumulates a lot of pet cats. There used to be colonies of stray pet cats living in some places however now I don't see them any more.
Cats actually hold a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and a few can change serious however, not many. If cats were creating too much sickness they would not need invaded our lives as well as they have. But there are still people out there who do nothing like cats. When I first visited China about 20 years ago there were very few pet cats coping with people and very few wild cats. I was amazed because I've experienced cats all my entire life and I never thought people didn't like cats. But then in China the individuals said cats taken disease and that was it. I feel that might have something to do with that cat sick you enter your eye. Not serious only a minor problem for weekly And if you were pregnant you had to stay away from cats. I think they were referring to toxoplasmosis, but if you get that when you are a kid it should not affect your baby. In addition they said pet cats were filthy but I don't believe so. I believe cats are one of the cleanest domestic pets you could have. I feel that came from the cats eliminating the rats and mice. Because rats are incredibly dirty animals then because the pet cats wiped out and ate them they'll also be grubby. A dusty by connection type of thing. Also there were some big sewer rats operating round throughout the day. Once I saw a rat and a cat face off one another and the kitten wasn't much bigger than the rat. These were about a foot apart staring the other person out and the cat ran away. I'm not stunned the rat's tooth were bigger that the felines.
