Why cats were hated in Medieval Europe — 2 Comments

  1. Religion. Wherever the scourge prevails it is always bad news for all species, especially our beloved cats. I do not believe there is one religion that means little except suffering for non humans. I wonder if The Jain, who even gently brush our insect friends out of harm’s way are as truly as respectful of all life as they profess?

    • I guess you are as sceptical as me about the benefits of religion. The trouble is it is very human-centric which relegates animals to second class and lower where they are abused.
