Re: Jerusalem's solution.... Richard
I read that it was one of the Popes who came up with cats being familiars of witches - and yes, friends of the devil. It was stupidity at it's finest. Cats were slaughtered by the millions and yep, the rodents reproduced like mad. Rats and mice with their fleas carried the plague which killed millions of people.
I read this in several places over the years so assume it's true.
