So.. I envy Yogi and her environment, no noisy Child purrson in her house. I mean human one. although Yogi seems to be angry at her little brother sometimes.

Well.. Speaking of baby purrson/child purrson, Recently I saw someone from Egypt posted a photo of cute cat on FB. I wrote comment about the cat (if the cat belongs to the friend, etc..) along with compliments, there were several comments from other furriends before I wrote there, but others wrote their comments in Arabic, well.. I can read Arabic bit, but I did not think I had to try reading other people's comments about the cat, so I did not read. but later other furriend joined the thread and told me that "Imoe, except us, everybody else's comments to this cat were all negative, they say they hate cats because they believe that the cats cause bad disease to pregnant women!!" I could not believe it. I thought people in Egypt love cats. In my Japanese book about Egypt said that Egyptian people don't even get sick by drinking public water(according to the author, everywhere in Egypt, you can find a large water bottles with a cup in public area, and anyone can drink the water from the bottle by sharing the cup, if so.. I can imagine that sometimes sick purrson might use it, and somebody might use it after sick person used..) I've never heard of any disease spread in the country.. so I believe the book that Egyptian people are physically healthier and stronger than other people. Are the number of handicapped or mentally ill people in the country is higher than other countries because they loved cats longtime ago and cats caused illness to human babies and pregnant women in Egypt? I don't think so.
I heard that they stopped cherishing cat too much after the coutry lost war, not because they discovered that cats caused disease to pregnant women and unborn babies.
then why are some people still believe the cat disease thing and hate cats for that???
(Toxoplasma, they meant).
So, I brought the subject to the rescue group in Egypt on FB, and I was glad. the people who care about animals, and participate rescue activity were very educated, they said they would do anything not to lose their cats even when they are pregnant. some woman said she was told to get rid of her cat by her mother while she was pregnant, but refused to do so, her husband understood her and her cats, (that was very good), so she was able to keep her cat, and had a healthy human baby. (isn't that great? the mother of the woman was one of the people who believed that cats could cause disease to unborn baby, but the woman grew up without believing what her mother believed).
the People who joined the talk with me were very educated in the subject, I was glad that some people in Egypt still love cats!! and really love cats.
nobody said that they would choose cats over their babies, but they said they would do anything to keep their cats in any situation or circumstance.
Well... my mom did not change any her routine even during pregnancy, she was even changing my litter box daily then, but her child purrson is healthy, she even ate my poo, but still healthy. her doctor did not even suggest mom to get rid of cat(that's me). I think having cats at home is not really scary problem to pregnant women.
