Feral and free-roaming cats create community health risk: Letter to the Editor

Jul 26, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Cleveland.com

Because they spend time outdoors, feral and free-roaming pet cats are likely to become infected with the ubiquitous parasite toxoplasma gondii .

HSUS and SPCA and PetCo and PetSmart and anyone that they award TNR grants to are now in direct violation of findings by the CDC.(Like this is any surprise? They all make money by exploiting the suffering of animals, why on earth would they try to end that? Of course they're going to support TNR!)

Conclusions on all TNR practices now direct from the CDC -- onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/zph.12070...

"Summary

Domestic cats are an important part of many Americans' lives, but effective control of the 60-100 million feral cats living throughout the country remains problematic. Although trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) programmes are growing in popularity as alternatives to euthanizing feral cats, their ability to adequately address disease threats and population growth within managed cat colonies is dubious. Rabies transmission via feral cats is a particular concern as demonstrated by the significant proportion of rabies post-exposure prophylaxis associated with exposures involving cats. Moreover, TNVR has not been shown to reliably reduce feral cat colony populations because of low implementation rates, inconsistent maintenance, and immigration of unsterilized cats into colonies. For these reasons, TNVR programmes are not effective methods for reducing public health concerns or for controlling feral cat populations. Instead, responsible pet ownership, universal rabies vaccination of pets and removal of strays remain integral components to control rabies and other diseases."

(end summary)

It's about time the CDC finally dragged their heads out of their asses and told everyone what I and everyone else have been telling everyone FOR YEARS.

Maybe now all those fools who practice TNR CAT-HOARDING will be finally thrown in prison cells, right where they've belonged all along for being a direct threat to the health of all life on earth and direct threat to the very existence of nature itself -- crimes against all of nature and all of humanity. The punishment used to be "hanged until dead" for crimes like that. Maybe we can bring that punishment back. I'll be the first to vote "yes" on it for anyone who promotes or practices TNR anywhere in the world.

These are just the diseases cats have been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Afipia felis, Anthrax, Bartonella (Rochalimaea) henselae, Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, Campylobacter Infection, Cat Scratch Disease, Chlamydia psittaci (feline strain), Cowpox, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Cutaneous larva migrans, Dermatophytosis, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Neisseria canis, Pasteurella multocida, Plague, Poxvirus, Rabies, Rickettsia felis, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection, Scabies, Sporothrix schenckii, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasmosis, Trichinosis, Visceral larva migrans, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis.[Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] Bovine Tuberculosis, Flea-borne Typhus, Rat-Bite Fever, Sarcosporidiosis, and Tularemia can now also be added to that list.

A FEW examples (of thousands):

Cat-Transmitted PLAGUE:

daily-times./ci_20849462/healt h-department-said-taos-cat-has -plague

Disproving that oft-spewed LIE that cats in Europe could have prevented the plague. No rats nor fleas even required. Cats themselves carry and transmit the plague all on their own.

Tularemia:

Flea-borne Typhus:

Hookworm -- ruined Miami Businesses:

Cats' most insidious disease of all, their Toxoplasma gondii parasite they spread through their excrement into all other animals. This is how humans get it in their dinner-meats, cats roaming around stockyards and farms. This is why cats are routinely destroyed around gestating livestock or important wildlife by shooting or drowning them. So those animals won't suffer from the same things that can happen to the unborn fetus of any pregnant woman.(Miscarriages, still-births, hydrocephaly, and microcephaly.) It can make you blind or even kill you at any time during your life once you've been infected. It becomes a permanent lifetime parasite in your mind, killing you when your immune system becomes compromised by disease or chemo and immunosuppressive therapies. It can last over a year in any soils or waters and not even washing your hands or garden vegetables in bleach will destroy the oocysts. Contrary to cat-lickers' self-deceptive myths, a cat can become reinfected many times during its life and spread millions of oocysts each time. It's now linked to the cause of autism, schizophrenia, and brain cancers. This parasite is also killing off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from cats' T. gondii oocysts in run-off from the land, the oocysts surviving even in saltwater.

Its strange life cycle is meant to infect rodents. Any rodents infected with it lose their fear of cats and are attracted to cat urine.

http://scitizen./neuroscience/ parasite-hijacks-the-mind-of-i ts-host_a-23-509.html

Cats attract rodents to your home with their whole slew of diseases. If you want rodents in your home keep cats outside of it to attract diseased rodents to your area. I experienced this phenomenon (as have many others), and all rodent problems disappeared after I shot and buried every last one of hundreds of cats on my lands.

The time has come to destroy them all whenever spotted away from supervised confinement. There's no other solution. We have nobody but cat-lickers to thank for this health and ecological disaster. Stray-cats, the very source of all feral-cats, need to be euthanized too or you'll never be rid of the feral-cat problem.

Another interesting experiment. They wanted to find out if dogs could possibly transmit cat-shat Toxoplasma gondii oocysts. A dog infected with T. gondii from a source-cat cannot. That stage of the parasite's life-cycle is 100% dependent on cat-physiology as its primary reproductive host. But if dogs ingest oocyst-laden cat-feces then dogs can pass the oocysts produced by cats & their common brain-hijacking parasite.

http://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9477489...

It is interesting to note: That these Toxoplasma gondii oocysts shed by cats can even survive the hydrochloric stomach acids for the duration that they remain in a mammal's digestive tract. And then they doubt my words when I tell them of the studies where they found that this parasite's oocysts (seeds) can even survive washing your hands in bleach.

You could wash your hands and garden vegetables in hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes for the same duration that food remains in an animal's digestive tract and even that won't destroy it. Your hands would be dissolved into a digestible pulp long before you could kill the Toxoplasma gondii oocysts.

Yeah, "basic hygiene" is going to keep your kids safe from going blind sometime during their life, becoming autistic, or die if they ever require any immunosuppressive therapies during their lifetime if they had ever played in a sandbox that a neighbor's cat has defecated in.

Dream on, fools! Drink the cat-lickers' Kool-Aid!

After reading several similarly phrased posts I concluded its the same author. I'm all for cats controls. But to be quite frank there's those in Australia who would love your words, However to the sane majority you would neatly fall into the raving lunatic category.

ROFLMAO!

Too too effin' funny!

Not only do you lead them right to the information on why you are cat-licking liars, but you also lead them direct to the information that proves why everyone MUST destroy every last cat they find on their lands, collared or not!

ROFLMAO!!

But then, like I've always said, cat-lickers are even dumber than their cats. This is why their cats can "outsmart" them so easily to escape from safe confinement. Even proving that cats are so much smarter than the cat-lickers that even the cats don't want to be around people this incredibly STUPID!

ROFLMAO!!
