Caini versus pisici

Durata citire: 5 minute

Potrivit sondajelor, peste 50% dintre romani au un animal de companie. Dintre acestia, cei mai multi prefera cainii (59,4%), in vreme ce iubitorii de pisici sunt in numar considerabil mai mic (36,6%). Dar dezbaterea caini vs pisici este mult mai ampla de atat, facand subiectul multor cercetari de-a lungul timpului.

Care e mai inteligent, cainele sau pisica? Care e mai iubitor? Care e mai egoist? Care e mai usor de crescut? Care e mai prietenos cu copiii? Care e mai terapeutic? Care stapani sunt mai inteligenti, ai cainilor sau ai pisicilor? Ce spune alegerea animalului de companie despre viata amoroasa a stapanului? Si cate si mai cate nastrusnicii de intrebari, la care echipe intregi de oameni de stiinta si-au pus mintea sa raspunda. In timp ce cainii si pisicile sigur nu-si bat capul cu asta si fac ce stiu cel mai bine: ne subjuga sa-i iubim iremediabil, umplandu-ne existenta cu multa bucurie si lectii nepretuite, pe care nu le putem invata de nicaieri din alta parte.

Dar, daca niste minti luminate au alocat timp din viata lor pentru a raspunde unor controverse – pesemne aprinse, de au meritat sa fie luate in seama de cercetatori – sa vedem la ce concluzii s-a ajuns, macar in ce priveste inteligenta celor doua specii.

Animalele de companie si COVID 19?

Durata citire: 4 minute

Nu exista pana acum dovezi clare ca pisicile si cainii ar putea imbolnavi sau infecta oamenii cu COVID 19

Comunitatea veterinara urmareste cu deosebit interes evolutia pandemiei de COVID-19, pentru a identifica riscurile pentru animale si posibila transmitere zoonotica. Cu unele exceptii, majoritatea infectiilor cu coronavirus (CoV), la animalele domestice, sunt asociate predominant cu bolile gastro-intestinale.

Pe 28 februarie 2020 Departamentul de Agricultura, Pescuit si Conservare  (DAPC) a dat publicitatii o declaratie potrivit careia un caine a fost testat pozitiv la SARS CoV2. Aceasta declaratie a ridicat multe semne de intrebare in randul iubitorilor de animale dar si din partea colegilor veterinari, cu privire la modul in care potentialele contaminari ale animalelor de companie ne-ar putea afecta, nu numai in Hong Kong ci si in intreaga lume.

Cazul despre care se afirma in declaratie este al unui catel din rasa Pomeranian in varsta de 17 ani, cu comorbiditati, care a fost trimis la DACP dupa ce proprietarul a fost testat pozitiv la COVID 19.  S-au recoltat probe orale, nazale si rectale exact cum se procedeaza pentru cazurile umane. Aceste probe au fost testate serologic, cultural si prin PCR, acesta din urma fiind considerat precis pentru COVID 19.  Probele recoltate din cavitatea bucala si nazala au iesit slab pozitive in cazul a 5 testari separate succesive pe o perioada de doua saptamani. O posibila contaminare de la om la animal a fost exclusa , iar recontaminarea nu a fost posibila deoarece animalul a fost tinut izolat in carantina in canisele guvernamentale. Aceste rezultate sugereaza o adevarata infectie, dupa cum au convenir expertii in virusologie si boli infectioase de la Universitatea din Hong Kong si OMS.

Jonatan

Durata citire: < 1 minute

Pudelul Jonatan al poetului Langebin l-a insotit pe acesta intr-o plimbare prin padure, unde poetul isi pierdu punga cu bani.

Pe drum spre casa, poetul, observand lipsa banilor, dadu luiJonatan sa-i miroase buzunarul si cum cainele era dresat sa caute obiecte, il trimise inapoi sa-i aduca punga din padure.

Intre timp, un taran de prin imprejurimi gasind portofelul il vari repede in buzunar. Cainele Jonatan, luindu-i insa urma, il ajunse si incepu sa latre, sarind imprejurul lui. Taranul, neintelegand limbajul cainelui, fu foarte bucuros ca un caine atat de frumos il indragise. Ii puse cureaua de gat, ducandu-l acaa si culcandu-l cu el intr-o magazine.
