no, really, they ought to test cat ladies for Toxoplasma

I'm not kidding. These women--almost always women--are victims of biology. There's something strange, and probably parasitical, going on. If Toxoplasma makes rats abnormally fond of cats, who's to say it, or something like it, isn't to blame when someone hoards hundreds of cats?

Toxoplasma gondii, all you post-Docs looking for ideas. When you discover a cure and your Nobel Prize rolls in, I demand a cat. I mean a cut.
