Fu*king cats. I`ve been trying to kill as many as possible to help save the world. I don`t seek appreciation nor glory, just the pure sweet vindication that comes with being right.

You are all welcome, I will continue to cleanse the globe of these filthy creatures until the day I die.

Cats = Suck

And Gerry, I appreciate your posts my friend.

Meh...this is old news & these theories have been around for a while. But yes, it is quite interesting. I still suspect toxoplasmosis is the cause of Crazy Cat Ladies. All that parasitic goodness causing undue affection for cats...crazy cat ladies are the zombies of the parasite/cat world...

Grats, very nicely done. :)

My summation: Cats carry a parasite that is capable of affecting your social behavior and danger/ response time.

Less than 100 characters is going to be a challenge. But perhaps a haiku?

That was 98 characters, counting spaces. How`d I do?

That was way too long to read this early in the morning, but I can say that I owned a kitten for about 2 months and he pissed me off more than any pet I`ve ever had and I will never own another cat. Does that apply at all to the article?

I`m not smart enough for that, so thankfully I can laugh in retrospect at my own joke. Sorry, it was the Toxy speaking (I kept cats*)

*pet, platonic.

@Draculya: LOL. That was evil. You know CJ`s on a different time zone, right? Because he`s sleeping, you`ve now convicted him in absentia of eating cats or knowing them biblically.

I`m not convinced, but I`ve got to give the guy credit for creative thinking. I`d never really considered that humans and squirrels aren`t necessarily immune to behavior-altering parasites, and now that I`m considering it, it`s creeping me out. ~shudder~

"I`ve got to call BS on this `theory`. I love cats and haven`t had one in years."

In what manner? Pet, culinary, or sexual?

Please don`t respond if other than as a pet.

I read this article today - well, the first page. No jealousy for not having submitted the link - just delight to see it here.

Guess that explains the craziness of all those cat ladies to a greater depth, eh?

So, some guy thinks that he is crazy, so he decides to look into his own brain. Then he figures out that cats are controlling him. Sounds legit to me.

It might explain a few things! I didn`t have cats growing up, but there`s lots of other ways to get it too.

Lived with cats first 20 years of my life, 6 total. Ether I am immune or I am mad... or I am sane and the rest of the world is mad. I better not think too hard on that, might drive me crazy.

Blah blah blah this theory is something I`ve heard a thousand times already. Maybe he came up with it but it`s hardly the first I`ve heard of it. And it`s probably true, I used to hate cats. Now I can`t live without them.
