About BBC Future - Making you smarter every day
Everything, every single thing, this writer said she felt about cockroaches, I feel about cats, dogs, birds, and all animals. In spades. I not only have the worst kind of panic that one might touch me, but I am also revolted by them: their stench, their fur or feathers, their filth, their licking their own and other animals' genitals, their barks, meows, or tweets -- there is nothing about them that's not sickening to me. When I see a cat, the vomit rises in my throat. Today I had to climb to the top of a metal gate as several dogs were running around the street where I was visiting a friend. I stayed this way until a taxi came and took me the two blocks to my house.
