Health Editor’s Note: I am inclined to agree with this list although I do not see cats listed here. With the large variety of felines that live here, there would be appear some genius thinking in how they can get humans to be their staff. Do you know of any other species of animal that should or could be on this list? Enjoy!…Carol
