The Cats Have Finally Decided To Take Us All Out

"Black plague, it would seem, is alive and well in Oregon. According to CBS News, authorities believe that a man contracted the infamously deadly plague from a stray cat while attempting to dislodge a mouse from its mouth. During the exchange, the cat decided to take a chunk out of the poor guy, effectively transferring the disease to his blood stream. The altercation between man and beast took place on June 2nd, after which the man experienced a severe fever. By June 8th, he was very sick, prompting a visit to a nearby hospital."

"I just thought the stray cat would be totally cool with me wrenching a morsel of mouse from its mouth! I have no idea why it flipped out on me!"

This is just the thing to finally get me to stop stealing mice from the mouths of stray cats.

I do that to people who take french fries off my plate.

Psssh, city people and their health scares. The prairie dogs we have out at the foot of the Rockies are basically made of plague bacteria. Just don't touch wild animals. And if you happen to be an idiot, get antibiotic treatments early and you'll make it out fine.

@Danzig! I wear a Prairie Dog Action t-shirt to the gym. And the message is lost on NYers. But just wait until Plague comes creeping east on little mousie feet.
