    Instead, we have middle age followed by plagues.

    The Church decided that cats were evil, so they killed all the cats they could find and the rats carried the plague all over Europe and killed half the people.

    Ah, but it can be! Kids all grown and gone, retirement, time to pursue the interests long put on hold. I go to a writing group at a local retirement community, and there are people in their 80s still hiking, bicycling, writing, working—you name it, they do it. Those in their 90s aren’t as physically active, but mentally, they are on top of everything.

    According to Wikipedia, Pope Gregory IX released a papal bull around 1232, titled Vox in Rama (Latin, “A voice in Rama”), that condemned a contemporary surge in devil worship. In the course of describing the actions of groups engaging in devil worship, the claim was made that black cats were used in the rituals and the devil was likened to a cat. So far as I can tell from the limited information available online, the Pope was not condemning black cats or ordering their extermination. He was describing their use in evil rituals, which apparently unfortunately inspired people to fear black cats and to kill them.

    Furthermore, even if cats, and particularly only black cats, were killed in the 1200s, how would that seriously effect the Plague coming in the mid-1300s?
