Quite right. Here is some quick reading on that: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-he ... -humans/63Agaton wrote:That's impressive!
Cats have high level of harmful-to-humans organims in natural "ecosystem" in the mouth. A cat bite can be dangerous. A cat bit my hand once, and I practicaly watched the infection walk up my arm for a few hour until the ER nuked it with antibiotic.
Same with bears, in case your name Grizzly Adams. Ha ha.
That all said, I have had cats for 55 years and have yet to be damaged by one of them to the point where I needed a doctor. Lots of scratches though. Cannot recall the last bite that broke the skin (the girl nibbles lightly at my elbow to wake me up in the morning).
The big guy in my lap has the sweetest disposition of any cat I have ever had. His wide eyed exuberance combined with his insatiable curiosity have led to many rolling-on-the-floor laughing moments, and he just turned one year old.
