Pet cats and mankind have been residing in harmony for quite some time but that hasn't always been the truth. There have been times when felines have been nearly wiped out in the name of God. And what happened the Black Loss of life reigned supreme for considerably longer than it will. So we will get back to the beginnings of recorded background to the time of the pharaohs of Egypt. Here pet cats were revered as Gods and many were mummified to previous for eternity. Because the cats guarded the grain warehouses and wiped out the rats and mice that fed on the grain. Therefore lowering famines, which were the curse of Egypt. It was illegal to eliminate cats in those days, like cows in India today.
Cats actually take a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and a few can change serious but not many. If cats were creating too much sickness they would 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 visited China about 20 years ago there have been very few pet cats coping with people and incredibly few wild cats. I was amazed because I've experienced cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like cats. But in China the folks said cats transported disease and that was it. I think that might have something regarding that cat tired you get in your vision. Not serious just a minor problem for weekly And when 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 youngster it should not affect your child. They also said cats were filthy but I don't believe so. I believe felines 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 extremely dirty animals then because the felines killed and ate them they will also be filthy. A soiled by connection kind 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 kitty wasn't much bigger than the rat. These were about a foot apart staring one another out and the cat ran away. I'm not astonished the rat's tooth were bigger that the felines.
