Believe it or not, in the middle ages cats are considered associated with witches and often killed? In medieval times, cats are considered associated with witches and are often killed by fire and thrown from a high place. Some historians believe that the epidemic of Black Death or bubonic plague spread quickly in Europe during the 14th century was due to superstition. This is because the number of murders committed cat thereby increasing the population of mice that carry the bubonic plague?

Well the cats certainly have a poor fate eh. Lucky for them in the modern times they are now upgraded as house pets. I love my kitty. Nothing scary about her at all. :)

Hmm. Interesting, now I know why is there something creepy that lingers in my mind whenever I see a cat, well I am not afraid of them. I just don't want to look in their eyes

mice didn't carry the plague. it was fleas. which the cats may well have been carrying too. not certain on that one, as some fleas are very species specific, but cats have fleas too.
