  1. Important typo correction.

    That should be http://www.cdc.gov/plague/

    You missed a “c” in “cdc”

    p.s. Thanks for collecting all this info, it comes in handy when trying to educate demented feral-cat-lovers that are training their cats to approach and attack humans by feeding all these millions of untamed disease-infested cats.

    • Thanks for calling the URL typo to my attention. It’s been fixed. Happy to know the info provided in the blog is useful to you. I don’t know when people will get it through their heads that feeding stray cats or any other wild animal is tantamount to inviting Jack the Ripper into their homes for the night.
