Many cat owners find that they wind up catering to their cat and serving their feline over time. While this is normal behavior, there’s a possible scientific reason why your behavior changes to serve your cat. Evidence suggests cats are literally changing their owner’s minds.
Toxoplasmosis is a parasite that can create cysts in the brain. Some studies show more than 20 percent of Americans have been infected. In some countries that number rises up to 90 percent. Even more alarming is that rats infected by toxoplasmosis lost their fear of cats, making them easier for the cats to catch and kill. So if you think your cat is controlling you, you may be right.
