If this frame of mind towards cats goes back generations then one can realize why historians say the Black color Death started 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 once i get back to China there are still rats running around however, not so many in the casing estates. There are many down by the river. Also they employ a efficient rubbish clean up system that keeps the cities very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is collected everyday. That could also keep carefully the rat society down. And with so many discarded cats playing around the rats don't possess much of the opportunity. I've never seen this but I believe the government accumulates a whole lot of cats. There used to be colonies of stray pet cats surviving in some places but now I don't see them any longer.
Cats actually carry a few parasites, a few fleas plus some diseases and a few can turn serious but not many. If pet cats were creating too much sickness they would not have invaded our lives as well as they have got. But there are still people out there who do not like pet cats. When I first went to China about 20 years ago there have been very few felines living with people and very few wild pet cats. I was astonished because I've got cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like cats. But in China the individuals said cats taken disease and that was it. I feel that may have something regarding that cat sick you get in your eyesight. Not serious only a moderate problem for weekly And when you were pregnant you'd to keep away from cats. I believe they were referring to toxoplasmosis, but if you get that when you are a kid it will not affect your child. They also said cats were filthy but I don't think so. I think cats are one of the cleanest dogs you can have. I think that came from the cats eradicating the rats and mice. Because rats are extremely dirty animals then because the cats wiped out and ate them they'll also be grubby. A soiled by connection kind of thing. Also there have been some big sewer rats working round throughout the day. Once I found a rat and a kitty face off the other person and the cat wasn't much bigger than the rat. These 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 felines.
