My brother and his girlfriend have 3 cats and now they are taking care of mine for right now. As some of you probably read my post in behavior section. Anyways my mom has heard on tv and read about it that cats can be deadly. If they bite you to do damage something in their saliva can make you ill and even kill you. I never EVER heard of this. To me its just another problem added into society. Just like Carrots can cause cancer if eaten raw or something to that nature. When my mom told my brother he just laughed at her and said ook. I am thinking if that is true maybe its outdoor cats that would be more exceptable due to being in contact with more diseases? I dont know its just a guess. Also my mom had told me that since my immune system is low because of my arthritis and taking embrel shots that cats can get you sick and make you deadly ill. So, she said she read this and heard it on tv talk shows. True or not? I still love my cat and it wont change me wanting her back!!! This is also coming from a person (my mom) who doesnt like cats because to her they are sneaky and they like to jump on furniture etc. She says they are cute as kittens but when they grow up their cats. So, I know she isnt saying this or doing this to discourage my brother and his girlfriend or I to have a cat. She isnt mean to them just she isnt a cat person. So again Id like to know if this is actually true or not?
