I had an article from end of June this year, forget the source,
about a parasite which completes its cycle using two hosts: in this
case a cat and a rat. The file got corrupted and now I'm having a
bit of trouble finding information about this. Thought someone here
would be able to help.
The parasite, I think, begins its cycle on a rat. Somehow, the rat
becomes affected by the parasite and becomes bolder than normal,
confrontational where it should really be avoiding confrontation. As
a result, more run-ins with larger animals like cats take place. The
cat, eating the cadaver, ingests the parasite, where it proceeds with
another part of its life cycle. Finally -- I think this is right --
rats pick up the parasite once again from the cat's spore.
Anyway, for any and all assistance in tracking this information,
thank's in advance.
