Cat parasite linked to schizophrenia?

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A Washington psychiatrist believes there is a link between exposure to cats in childhood and schizophrenia.
Dr. Fuller Torrey says that he has noticed that schizophrenics were more likely to have had cats when they were very young or mothers who had cats while pregnant.
Torrey told the New York Daily News that his wife thinks he is going to be killed by cat lovers. But he still believes that there is a link between early exposure to Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite found in cats, and schizophrenia.
"Not only cats, but virtually all animals carry transmissible agents, and some carry transmissible agents that have had profound implications for the human race," Torrey said.
He is now testing an antibiotic used to treat Toxoplasma gondii on schizophrenics.

Not true. It's not healthy for a pregnant woman to clean a cat box. It's fine to have a cat around. If you're pregnant, just don't play with their shit.

I've grown up with cats my whole life. I would own a cat myself, but I'm not allowed pets in this apartment. And myself and I are perfectly sane.

I wonder if dogs affect people in a similar manner. Maybe they cause incontinence! or impotence!

I think he's putting things upside down.
Cat lovers have to have a more complex personality, to be able to have cats anyway.
Dog lovers are the more straight forward types.
The "Go get them Blue" type. The typical redneck.
Ever seen a redneck hugging a cat?
No, it would be too sissy like.

Personally, I see a lion in every cat. The only difference is, they are smaller, but they have the same attitude.
That's why I like them.
Makes you a kind of beastmaster.. :rolleyes:

A dog? Had a dog..
A Newfoundlander. Sweet dog, but needed a lot of brushing.
It is a hell of a job to keep the house clean with such a dog.
That's why we didn't get ourselves another dog when she died.

So we have cats, and we love them.
If I had a manor with a large forest around it, I'd probably have some cheetahs running around.. :cool:

Cats hate me, not just one cat... all cats that aren't mine.
Whenever I go to a friend's house who has cats, and try to talk past a cat (peacefully!) I normally get a foot-attack from the cat. This consists of the cat jumping onto my foot, and wacking the hell out of it with its claws.
This thread made me kinda happy that cats hate me... :)

Edit - Okay... just noticed this now... it looks like Stardust's one cat is sucking the other ones titty! lmfao.. is it... hmm *wonders*.

We've got a "chocolate" (brown to the rest of you) Burmese runt at the moment. Our last cat died at 19 years of age. Guess what, at 19 it still didn't respond to its name. :rolleyes:
