One more damn thing to worry about: Cat parasites

Atlantic magazine has an excellent article this month about a researcher who is exploring the theory that a cat parasite invades human brains and causes people to dress sloppy, walk into traffic and even go schizophrenic. It could explain crazy cat ladies. If you own cats, it will make you a little nervous. It made me grateful for a mother who never allowed pets because she had “six crazy animals” as she called us kids.
