Who Knew WashU?

Question: Black cats were persecuted in the Middle Ages because they were thought to be associated with witches. Some claim that fewer cats led to an explosion of rats and, ultimately, which infectious disease outbreak?

Answer: C) The Black Death. Biologist Jonathan Losos, in Arts & Sciences, is writing a book, “The Cat’s Meow,” that delves into the history of cats and how they have evolved.
