Pet cats and mankind have been residing in harmony for many years but that hasn't always been the truth. There were times when pet cats have been practically destroyed in the name of God. And what occurred the Black Loss of life reigned supreme for a lot longer than it will. So we will go back to the origins of recorded record to enough time of the pharaohs of Egypt. Here pet cats were revered as Gods and many were mummified to previous for eternity. Because the pet cats guarded the grain warehouses and killed the rats and mice that given on the grain. Therefore reducing famines, that were the curse of Egypt. It was illegal to get rid of cats in those days, like cows in India today.
I believe one of the reason why there were few cats around is basically because they used to consume them. And once in a while the restaurant pet cat catches would pick up an kitty they could find and take them back again to the restaurant. I remember seeing pet cats in glass exhibits out leading of the restaurants. But somewhere within then and today they banned eating pet cats. So cats are actually not on the menu and now there are pet cats everywhere. Many of them began in someone's house and received thrown away, because so many are extremely friendly. Also they may have this thing about abdomen worms. And in those days China was not as modern as now so abdominal worms is a problem. Fleas aren't a really problem because they have tile floor surfaces and real wood furniture.
