Then your nine lives of the humble kitty who only wished to help mankind by killing rodents that carried disease took a significant switch for the even worse during the dark ages. Where witch hunts and using up at the stake were typical. Somebody who didn't like cats somehow connected them to witches plus 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 regarded the normal house cat as diabolical. Then to make things more serious in1484 along emerged the greatest kitten killer of all time, Pope Innocent VIII, who decreed something along the lines of all cats came from hell and really should went back to the fires of hell by flame. Felines were mercilessly prosecuted and were burnt so they would return to the fires of hell. It really is amazing any survived because if you were captured with a pet cat you were burnt jointly. I still go to church and sometimes I just wonder why. And undoubtedly the Black Death was in the background surviving and flourishing because there were no cats to get rid of the rats that taken the fleas that triggered the condition. Then along came the cat's savior King Louis XIII of France, who in the 1630s repealed the law and cats once again started to live. However they were still hated and killed for many hundreds of years from then on. I have no idea if the Black Fatality subsided but cats once again guarded mankind resistant to the diseases transported by rodents. As well as the famines due to mice plagues.

Cats actually hold a few parasites, a few fleas plus some diseases and some can turn serious however, not many. If pet cats were triggering too much sickness they might not need invaded our lives as well as they have. But there are still people out there who do nothing like cats. When I first visited China about twenty years ago there were very few felines living with people and incredibly few wild felines. I was astonished because I've got cats all my life and I never thought people didn't like felines. But in China the folks said cats carried disease and this was it. I think that might have something regarding that cat tired you enter your eyesight. Not serious just a small problem for weekly In case you were pregnant you had to stay away from cats. I think they were referring to toxoplasmosis, but if you get that when you are a kid it will not affect your baby. They also said pet cats were filthy but I don't think so. I think cats are one of the cleanest house animals you can have. I feel that originated from the cats getting rid of the rats and mice. Because rats are extremely dirty pets then because the cats killed and ate them they will also be dusty. A soiled by connection kind of thing. Also there have been some big sewer rats operating round during the day. Once I saw a rat and a pet cat face off one another and the feline wasn't much bigger than the rat. They were about a ft . apart staring each other out and the cat ran away. I'm not shocked the rat's pearly whites were bigger that the cats.
