Its all fun and games but there is the possibility this study is real, and the parasite does cause schizophrenia and you people turn the thread in cat pic thread.
shame on you people.
Toxoplasmosis is caused by the Toxoplasma gondii microorganism. It is a common cause of infectious abortion in sheep and goats, other animals and humans. Cats can be carriers of T. gondii, but typically only shed the organism when they are first infected. Cats often defecate and bury their feces in the hay and food storage areas of barns. Animals can become infected by ingesting food or water contaminated by these feces.
just throwing a clue out there for those looking for one

Most animals can establish a bond of trust regarding Man, not just cats and dogs. It just depends on the person in question and the circumstance. As to the Schizophrenia and cats, well the link regarding Toxoplasmosis has been apparent for sometime. As to Toxoplasmosis being responsible for inducing Schizophrenia personally i think as a species we are crazy enough all on our own, no need to blame the poor cats, better off blaming television.
IS IT THE CHICKEN--or is it the egg?
