If this attitude towards cats dates back generations the other can realize why historians say the African american Death were only available in China. Where there are rats no cats then your rats dominate and that would have been a precursor for the disease to get near people. Now while i get back to China there are still rats playing around but not so many in the cover estates. There are plenty of down by the river. Also they have a very efficient rubbish clean up system that maintains the towns very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is collected everyday. That could also keep the rat society 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 accumulates a great deal of felines. There used to be colonies of stray cats residing in some places but now I don't see them any longer.
Cats actually bring a few parasites, a few fleas plus some diseases and a few can change serious however, not many. If cats were creating too much sickness they might not have invaded our lives as well as they have. But there are still people out there who do not like pet cats. When I first visited China about 20 years ago there have been very few pet cats living with people and very few wild pet cats. I was impressed because I've acquired cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like felines. But then in China people said cats taken disease and this was it. I feel that might have something to do with that cat sick and tired you get in your eyesight. Not serious simply a minor problem for a week If you were pregnant you'd to keep away from cats. I believe they were discussing toxoplasmosis, but if you get that whenever you are a kid it will not affect your baby. In addition they said cats were dusty but I don't think so. I think cats are one of the cleanest house animals you can have. I think that originated from the cats killing the rats and mice. Because rats are incredibly dirty family pets then because the cats wiped out and ate them they will also be filthy. A dusty 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 each other and the cat wasn't much bigger than the rat. These were about a feet apart staring each other out and the cat ran away. I'm not shocked the rat's pearly whites were bigger that the cats.
