Cats actually hold a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and a few can change serious but not many. If felines were leading to too much sickness they would not have invaded our lives as well as they may have. But you may still find 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 incredibly few wild cats. I was amazed because I've got cats all my entire life and I never thought people didn't like cats. But then in China individuals said cats carried disease and this was it. I feel that might have something to do with that cat suffering you get in your attention. Not serious simply a small problem for weekly And if 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 will not affect your baby. They also said cats were dirty but I don't think so. I believe pet 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 felines wiped out and ate them they'll also be soiled. A grubby by connection type of thing. Also there were some big sewer rats running round during the day. Once I saw a rat and a kitty face off one another and the kitten wasn't much bigger than the rat. They were about a foot apart staring the other person out and the cat ran away. I'm not stunned the rat's pearly whites were bigger that the felines.
Then the nine lives of the humble feline who only wished to help mankind by eliminating rodents that carried disease took a significant switch for the more serious during the middle ages. Where witch hunts and losing at the stake were the norm. Someone who didn't like cats somehow connected them to witches plus they were burnt at the stake with there owners. The way they made that interconnection I'll never know. It began with Pope Gregory IX in the 1232 who deemed the normal house kitten as diabolical. Then to make things even worse in1484 along arrived the greatest cat killer ever, Pope Innocent VIII, who decreed something such as all cats came from hell and should went back to the fires of hell by flames. Pet cats were mercilessly prosecuted and were burnt so they might return to the fires of hell. It is amazing any survived because if you were caught with a feline you were burnt together. I still go to chapel and sometimes I simply wonder why. And of course the Black Fatality was in the backdrop surviving and growing because there have been no felines to wipe out the rats that taken the fleas that brought on the condition. Then along came the cat's savior Ruler Louis XIII of France, who in the 1630s repealed the law and cats once again began to live. However they were still hated and killed for many hundreds of years from then on. I have no idea if the Black color Loss of life subsided but cats once again covered mankind up against the diseases transported by rodents. And the famines due to mice plagues.
Cats and mankind have been residing in harmony for quite some time but that hasn't always been the case. There have been times when pet cats have been almost wiped out in the name of God. And what took place the Black Loss of life reigned supreme for a lot longer than it will. So we will get back to the beginnings of recorded history to enough time of the pharaohs of Egypt. Here pet cats were revered as Gods and many were mummified to last for eternity. As the felines guarded the grain warehouses and killed the rats and mice that given on the grain. Therefore minimizing famines, which were the curse of Egypt. It was illegal to kill cats in those days, like cows in India today.
