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 :eek: (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.
