I did like cats until we did the "Black Light Test".
All cats use the litter box to do their thing. All litter boxes have germs from the cat doing its thing.
When the sun goes down turn off all your lights in the kitchen so it is completely dark. Then turn on the "Black Light"
You can see all the paw prints where the cat has been, probably right after the litter box. And the kitchen is the place where you prepare food.
Sorry no more cats for us!
