These photo show Paul Gaylord as he recovers from the plague in Bend, Oregon.
Gaylord contracted the disease when he tried to pull a mouse out of the mouth of his cat, Charlie, because it was choking on the rodent.
The disease, a version of the medieval scourge that wiped out at least a third of Europe, took away the 59-year-old welder’s fingertips, his toes and his ability to make a living. He faces an arduous recovery surrounded by constant reminders of his misery, the infected cat died, and the trailer he’s living in has a mouse problem.
