Cats actually hold a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and some can turn serious however, not many. If cats were leading to too much sickness they would not have invaded our lives as well as they have got. 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 living with people and incredibly few wild pet cats. I was astonished because I've experienced cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like pet cats. But then in China the folks said cats taken disease which was it. I feel that may have something regarding that cat sick you enter your attention. Not serious just a minor problem for weekly In case you were pregnant you'd to keep 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 child. In addition they said cats were filthy but I don't think so. I believe felines are one of the cleanest house animals you could have. I think that came from the cats killing the rats and mice. Because rats are very dirty family pets then because the cats killed and ate them they'll also be filthy. A grubby by connection type of thing. Also there have been some big sewer rats operating round throughout the day. Once I observed a rat and a feline face off the other person and the feline wasn't much bigger than the rat. These were about a feet apart staring one another out and the cat ran away. I'm not shocked the rat's teeth were bigger that the pet cats.
Then your nine lives of the humble pet cat who only wished to help mankind by eliminating rodents that carried disease took a significant turn for the more serious during the dark ages. Where witch hunts and burning up at the stake were the norm. Someone who didn't like pet cats somehow connected those to witches and they were burnt at the stake with there owners. How they made that interconnection I'll never know. It began with Pope Gregory IX in the 1232 who deemed the common house pet cat as diabolical. Then to make issues more serious in1484 along came the greatest pet cat killer of all time, Pope Innocent VIII, who decreed something along the lines of all cats originated from hell and really should came back to the fires of hell by hearth. Pet cats were mercilessly prosecuted and were burnt so they might return to the fires of hell. It really is amazing any survived because if you were caught with a kitty you were burnt jointly. I still go to church and sometimes I just wonder why. And of course the Black Loss of life was in the backdrop surviving and growing because there were no cats to eliminate the rats that transported the fleas that brought on the disease. Then along arrived the cat's savior Ruler Louis XIII of France, who in the 1630s repealed regulations and cats once again started to live. But they were still hated and wiped out for many generations from then on. I don't know if the African american Loss of life subsided but felines once again guarded mankind from the diseases transported by rodents. And the famines due to mice plagues.
