I've never heard of cats spreading viruses, I've had cats my whole life and never had any trouble with it. Mine are indoor-only now though, they live a lot longer that way. As far as animals go cats are quite clean, certainly less germy than (human) kids. My friends with kids are always getting sick, especially around the start of a new school year.

Toxoplasmosis? A huge percentage of humans are infected too. (a third globally)

It changes people's brains. They usually are not aware they have it unless they get something like AIDS or some other systemic infection that suppresses their immune systems and then it can be really dangerous.

Things like that may not kill you but they certainly can change peoples lives for the worst. At the very least if you live in countries without free public health care having it in your MIB file might make you uninsurable soon.

Which could mean unemployable too.

That's one I hadn't heard of, although looking it up apparently the most common method of spreading is through food, with infected cat feces being next on the list. I can't speak for everyone but I try to never contact any sort of feces. Rats, something typically kept under control by cats are known to spread Hantavirus, and given a choice between the two it sounds worse.

Children still seem to be a far greater risk of exposure to all manner of viruses and bacteria than animals typically had as pets.

Fact is that if it's not one thing then another will come along thats equally as obnoxious to us humans and indeed to all living creatures. The only things that will win in the end are insects, as we and animals die, its insects who get the last laugh because they will feast on our bodies and recycle them unless we are cremated, the insects will get us all sooner or later.
