Diabolical little nasties they are....the cats are obviously waiting until they have infected the majority of humans and then plan to take over the Earth for their own nefarious purposes...

Kill all cats!

Australia knows what's going on....

Those of you who might find this disagreeable, are probably infected...lol

Some memes are well described as viruses of the mind. Conspiracy theories, unevidenced beliefs, false propaganda, etc.

And doing it Repeatedly… but that could also be insanity… doing the same thing over and over and expecting difference results.

Maybe we're all just vessels for genes to replicate themselves...

Now that genetic manipulation is possible, it would seem that the dreamed of superhumans can't be far behind, regardless of current political opposition...is it fate the we humans will build our idea of perfection, and what of the result?

Now that genetic manipulation is possible,...

And if we don't do it, someone else will. (That's why we all do things that nobody really wants.) Unfortunately, there are always unintended consequences as our abilities exceed our knowledge.

Rodents have a parasite (Toxoplasma gondii) that removes the fear of predators, where a cat will eat a infected rodent, and the parasite then can reproduces in the cat.

Uses the rodent as a tool.
