Why Do Lagosians Fear Cats?

I have noticed a morbid fear that many Lagosians have for domestic cats. Most claim that cats have something to do with witchcraft (or words to that effect).

I cannot reconcile this fear with all the bible-believing and quoting , tongue-speaking, vigil-going, fasting, casting, binding, mosque-going, etc etc

Why do so many Christians and M'uslims who believe strongly in God have such fear of cats and witchcraft?

Cats are my favorite animals. I love their cleaniness and their freedom. I love them, because the prophet (AS) loves them. They are the only animal that can be kept in the masjid. Its different from dogs that must be kept outside, even in the house. Dogs can be owned for specific reason; guarding, hunting and as assisting the infirmed, eg sight assisting dogs.

Maybe cause many african mythologies and cultures have connected cats to the underworld and even before Christianity came into Naija we did the same.

I don't know anywhere in the bible where a cat is mentioned with any significance or if there is please someone enlighten me
