Then your nine lives of the humble pet cat who only wanted to help mankind by eradicating rodents that transported disease took a serious turn for the worse during the middle ages. Where witch hunts and burning up at the stake were typical. Someone who didn't like felines somehow connected those to witches and they were burnt at the stake with there owners. That they made that connection I'll never know. It started off with Pope Gregory IX in the 1232 who considered the normal house feline as diabolical. Then to make things even worse in1484 along came the greatest kitty killer ever, Pope Innocent VIII, who decreed something along the lines of all cats originated from hell and should came back to the fires of hell by fire. Pet cats were mercilessly prosecuted and were burnt so they might return to the fires of hell. It really is amazing any survived because if you were caught with a cat you were burnt jointly. I still go to cathedral and sometimes I just wonder why. And undoubtedly the Black Death was in the backdrop surviving and thriving because there have been no felines to get rid of the rats that taken the fleas that induced the condition. Then along came the cat's savior King Louis XIII of France, who in the 1630s repealed the law and cats once more began to live. However they were still hated and wiped out for many ages after that. I don't know if the Black color Fatality subsided but pet cats once again secured mankind up against the diseases transported by rodents. And the famines brought on by mice plagues.
Cats actually hold a few parasites, a few fleas and some diseases and some can change serious however, not many. If felines were leading to too much sickness they would not need invaded our lives as well as they have. But there are still people out there who do not like pet cats. When I first went to China about twenty years ago there have been very few pet cats coping with people and incredibly few wild felines. I was surprised because I've acquired cats all my entire life and I never thought people didn't like pet cats. But then in China the individuals said cats taken disease and that was it. I think that may have something to do with that cat tired you get in your eye. Not serious just a little problem for weekly If 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 youngster it should not affect your child. They also said pet cats were filthy but I don't believe so. I think cats are one of the cleanest household pets you could have. I feel that originated from the cats killing the rats and mice. Because rats are incredibly dirty 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 running round during the day. Once I noticed a rat and a kitty face off the other person and the pet cat wasn't much bigger than the rat. They 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 felines.
