Pet cats and mankind have been residing in harmony for many years but that has not always been the truth. There have been times when pet cats have been almost destroyed in the name of God. And what occurred the Black Death reigned supreme for a lot longer than it should. So we will go back to the beginnings of recorded record to enough time of the pharaohs of Egypt. Here felines were revered as Gods and many were mummified to last for eternity. As 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 had been illegal to destroy 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 leading to too much sickness they might not have invaded our lives as well as they may have. But you may still find people out there who do nothing like pet cats. When I first went to China about 20 years ago there have been very few cats living with people and very few wild pet cats. I was impressed because I've experienced cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like felines. But in China individuals said cats carried disease and that was it. I feel that might have something to do with that cat suffering you get in your attention. Not serious simply a moderate problem for a week In case you were pregnant you'd to keep away from cats. I believe they were discussing toxoplasmosis, but if you get that when you are a kid it will not affect your baby. In addition they said cats were grubby but I don't think so. I think pet cats are one of the cleanest domestic pets you can have. I think that came from the cats eradicating the rats and mice. Because rats are extremely dirty pets then because the pet cats wiped out and ate them they will also be dusty. A grubby by connection kind of thing. Also there were some big sewer rats jogging round throughout the day. Once I observed a rat and a pet cat face off each other and the cat 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 stunned the rat's teeth were bigger that the pet cats.
