If this attitude towards cats dates back generations then one 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 could have been a precursor for the disease to get near to people. Now once i get back to China you may still find rats running around but not so many in the property estates. There are many down by the river. Also they employ a efficient rubbish tidy up system that helps to keep the places very clean. Where I stay the rubbish is gathered everyday. That could also keep carefully the rat populace down. And with so many discarded pet cats playing around the rats don't possess much of a chance. I've never seen this but I suspect the government picks up a great deal of cats. There used to be colonies of stray cats surviving in some places however now I don't see them any more.
Cats actually bring a few parasites, a few fleas plus some diseases and a few can turn serious but not many. If felines were triggering too much sickness they might not need invaded our lives as well as they have. But you may still find people out there who do nothing like pet cats. When I first visited China about twenty years ago there have been very few cats living with people and incredibly few wild pet cats. I was impressed because I've acquired cats all my entire life and I never thought people didn't like pet cats. But in China folks said cats taken disease which was it. I feel that might have something to do with that cat sick and tired you get in your vision. Not serious simply a minor problem for weekly And if you were pregnant you'd to keep away from cats. I think they were discussing toxoplasmosis, but if you get that when you are a kid it should not affect your baby. In addition they said cats were dusty but I don't think so. I believe pet cats are one of the cleanest pets you could have. I feel that came from the cats eliminating the rats and mice. Because rats are incredibly dirty animals then because the pet cats killed and ate them they'll also be dusty. A dusty by connection type of thing. Also there were some big sewer rats operating round during the day. Once I saw a rat and a kitten face off the other person and the cat wasn't much bigger than the rat. They were about a feet apart staring one another out and the cat ran away. I'm not astonished the rat's tooth were bigger that the felines.
