Cats are clean

SIR - I was astounded that you printed the letter from R Brown re cats. I rather suspect that it was something to do with provoking a debate in your paper.

Cats are very clean animals and hate being dirty. You cannot catch a cold from a cat.

Rubbing against your owner is not an attempt to transfer “germs,” it is a sign of affection and loyalty.

Yes, cats catch vermin, it is their natural instenct when let out at night. They just might have something to do with the rat population being kept at bay. After all, it has been proved that you are never more than 20 feet away from a rat.

So which do you hate most, R Brown? Cats or rats?

Ms Stracy,
