Mice lose their fear of cats

Posted · Add Comment

A number of recent reports have found that mice infected with a microscopic parasite Toxoplasma gondii permanently lose their fear of cats. Mice typically pick up the parasite when they eat cat faeces. One of the main effects of this infection has been found to reduce the aversion to cat urine , which cats use to mark out their territory.
