Default CATS

Cats can be lovely animals, but see what they can be up to:
1.Cat playing with you and scratches: Cat Scratch fever (Bacillary angiomatosis in immunocompromised ) caused by Bartonella spp.
2.This time,its a bite: Cellulitis/osteomyelitis by Pasteurella multocida
3.Now,Cat just had a good day and defecates all over (cat feces):Toxoplasmosis caused by toxoplama gondii.
No 3 is the reason pregnant women are advised not to stay around cats to avoid transmission to the fetus.

Any more 'cattish' disease or any other animal causing more than disease.

whenever I see cat or food or feet pictures on instagram I experience severe emetic reaction.
+ I believe that ladies that have more than one cat are nuts!

Just FYI, toxoplasmosis is more commonly transmitted by raw undercooked food than cat feces.

remembered one more -Opistorchiasis.
which is clonorchis sinensis - cat liver fluke that might also be pathogenic to humans and eventually cause cholangiocarcinoma.

F* cats!

You are right, Opisthorchis felineus (or cat liver fluke) will cause Opisthorchiasis, but Clonorchis sinensis is Chinese liver fluke (human liver fluke).Both can be transmitted through eating undercooked fish.

None of this would matter if they had more pleasant personalities.

Seriously. D**n them all to hell.
