More like that'll teach them both for not being responsible enough pet owners to get a new pet a health check (they should be lamped for ringworm as standard).

Plus it's easily cured with an anti-fungal.

this is not a myth! i study in medical school and it's proven that cats are dangerous for WOMEN's health.not talking about ringworms. It's frustrating how ignorant cat lovers insist that it's just a myth. I love little kitties too but it doesn't make them any less dangerous for health. Give me as many thumbs down as you can I don't care. That's what science says

no it won't because she was the one that didn't want to keep it in the first place but her kid/kids stressed her to keep it. ( next time read the post atleast 2 times )

Take kitty to vet to make sure it doesn't have any other health problems.


What ISN'T bad for someone's health? How many older women that live well into their 80s have had cats their whole lives? Just like diet sodas kill and cell phones kill and everything else on the planet kills.

#140 Except that's about accepting the known risks inherent to whatever activity/food/ect. you like, rather than the purposeful discounting of information regarding the health effects.

57- ringworm takes around 10 days to cure with anti fungal. and that's only if you don't spread it with clothing, towels, scratching, soap, or other objects that make contact with it. if that happens you're in for a fun additional 10 days at least with that new ringworm.

#100 What is dangerous about cats? I'm interested to know.. I know pregnant women shouldn't touch the litter tray because of the risk of toxoplasmosis, are there other things too?


25 - Perhaps that may be true about street or jungle cats, but domesticated cats are probably some of the cleanest animals you'll ever have. Shit, they clean themselves for goodness sake. Not many animals do that.


try licking yourselves instead of showering everyday, lets see how clean you'll feel. Rats are naturally filthy because they live in filthy places. i think all animals are filthy if left alone (without taking baths n stuff)

Guy above me sounds like he's afraid of dirt. FFS it's everywhere! That alone does not make one filthy, not in the context of the conversation going.


Sewer rats are filthy. Just like feral cats and hobos are. Domesticated rats are some of the cleanest animals there are. They bathe more than cats do. They sneeze and start freaking out and cleaning their faces.

First of all, way to work those spelling and grammar skills. Ringworm is a relatively mild skin disease that can spread through touch. You can treat it with the same creams and sprays as athlete's foot. OP and her family probably got the disease by petting the cat. This FML (by my interpretation) is more about the fact that OP got a major "I told you so" than the fact she has ringworm.

Before everyone gets their panties in a bunch (too late), the comment I originally replied to was deleted. My apologies to the person who was caught in the crossfire.
