Cats actually carry a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and some can turn serious but not many. If cats were leading to too much sickness they might not need invaded our lives as well as they may have. But you may still find people out there who do nothing like felines. When I first went to China about twenty years ago there have been very few pet cats living with people and very few wild cats. I was impressed because I've possessed cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like felines. But in China folks said cats transported disease and that was it. I think that might have something regarding that cat sick and tired you enter your attention. Not serious only a slight problem for weekly Of course, if you were pregnant you had to stay away from cats. I think they were discussing toxoplasmosis, but if you get that when you are a kid it will not affect your child. They also said felines were grubby but I don't think so. I think cats are one of the cleanest household pets you can have. I feel that came from the cats killing the rats and mice. Because rats are incredibly dirty animals then because the cats wiped out and ate them they will also be dirty. A filthy by connection type of thing. Also there were some big sewer rats jogging round throughout the day. Once I observed a rat and a kitty face off the other person and the kitten wasn't much bigger than the rat. These were about a ft . apart staring one another out and the cat ran away. I'm not amazed the rat's pearly whites were bigger that the cats.
If this frame of mind towards cats dates back generations the other can understand why historians say the Black color Death were only available in China. Where there are rats no cats then the rats dominate and that could have been a precursor for the disease to get near people. Now while i get back to China you may still find rats playing around however, not so many in the casing estates. There are plenty of down by the river. Also they employ a efficient rubbish tidy up system that continues the locations very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is accumulated everyday. That would also keep the rat inhabitants down. And with so many discarded felines running around the rats don't possess much of an opportunity. I've never seen this but I suspect the government picks up a whole lot of pet cats. There used to be colonies of stray cats surviving in some places but now I don't see them any longer.
