Man gets black plague from a mouse
4:10 PM Friday Jun 15, 2012

A man is critically ill in a hospital in the American state of Oregon with suspected plague, the disease that caused the Black Death, which wiped out 25 million people in 14th-century Europe.

The unidentified man, who is in his 50s, was reported to have been bitten on the hand while trying to save a mouse caught by a stray cat. He fell ill with a fever several days later and was admitted to hospital where doctors said he had classic symptoms of the disease. Laboratory tests are being carried out.

Eek! That headline is pretty alarming. I'm glad to read that modern medicine can cure it. Image

Yes my cats bring me mice, rats (and rabbits) all the time... let them go alive in the house at times.
Who know what diseases they might carry. I am normally conscious of hygiene anyway... but its a reminder

And .... I will be having a human to cat talk with the cats.... not that they listen to me :31
