How do the rodents get th bubonic plague?

It started with a bacteria. This bacteria got into parasites, which got into rats and other small mammals. The reason rats were the main cause for the plague is because back then, people were used to having rats in their houses. and it was difficult to rid of them. Bacteria > Parasite > Animal > Human. It is common misconception that rats caused the plague, which they did not, many other animals carried the flea, but weren't around any humans to spread it. It is also a misconception that rats did not die from the plague, which they did.
