Cats actually bring a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and some can change serious however, not many. If cats were triggering 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 felines. When I first went to China about twenty years ago there were very few cats living with people and very few wild cats. I was surprised because I've got cats all my entire life and I never thought people didn't like cats. But in China people said cats transported disease and this was it. I think that might have something to do with that cat suffering you enter your eyesight. Not serious only a small problem for a week In case you were pregnant you'd to keep away from cats. I think they were referring to toxoplasmosis, but if you get that whenever you are a youngster it should not affect your child. In addition they said cats were dirty but I don't believe so. I think cats are one of the cleanest dogs and cats you can have. I think that originated from the cats eliminating the rats and mice. Because rats are very dirty pets or animals then because the cats killed and ate them they will also be filthy. A filthy by connection kind of thing. Also there have been some big sewer rats operating round during the day. Once I observed a rat and a cat face off the other person and the kitty wasn't much bigger than the rat. They were about a ft . apart staring each other out and the cat ran away. I'm not surprised the rat's teeth were bigger that the pet cats.
If this frame of mind towards cats dates back generations the other can understand why historians say the Dark colored Death started in China. Where there are rats and no cats then the rats dominate and that would have been a precursor for the disease to get close to people. Now while i get back to China there are still rats running around but not so many in the property estates. There are various down by the river. Also they have a very efficient rubbish clean up system that helps to keep the towns very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is accumulated everyday. That would also keep carefully the rat society down. And with so many discarded cats running around the rats don't possess much of the opportunity. I've never seen this but I think the government accumulates a great deal of cats. There used to be colonies of stray felines moving into some places however now I don't see them any longer.
