Hate 'em. I'm allergic to cat dander so a house with cats is a sneezing itchy eyes hell for me. Worse is the folks who keep urban outdoor cats which kill off bird populations.

Personally, I'll catch & kill 'em by wringing their necks if I find them in my yard. You got a cat, keep it indoors or fence your yard effectively; your indulgence is not my problem.

I'll back off a bit and say if you are running a farm operation with feed storage, etc., a few farm cats can really cut down the vermin problems. But they are not the cuddly cats posted above; farm cats are warriors which have little to do with the humans on the farm. They're vicious nasty creatures.

Fritz! Ha! That badass cat with the explosions and our Lucy! sadly, Lucy is maybe not such an actual badass.

I like that yin-cat-yang thing mike.



edit: hey fritz back off man, manmountain's yard is his castle and stuff. ;-) clearly, other people's pets are indeed his deep-seated problem, and baby-dicked alpha male violence is response. too many cat turds in the sandbox as a kid apparently really hurts a man. 🐈💩

ManMountain! Per your inappropriate & nasty post:

My sister in law is a District Judge. She has noted that folks who start off abusing & killing pets, often move on to doing the same to people.

That fact is well known in legal circles.

Merry Hissmas to you.

I'm not the only one who sees a problem with outdoor urban cats:

No, but you're the only one posting "Personally, I'll catch & kill 'em by wringing their necks if I find them in my yard." on a cat appreciation thread. Which means another troll...

Summary execution by manual strangulation for trespassing?
Seems a bit excessive.
But you are a mountain man.

But you are a mountain man.

Actually Dana, he identifies himself as a "Man Mountain".

There is a difference between that and a "Mountain Man", I believe...mostly having to do with girth.

On another note:

Dear Mr. ManMountain,

You have a valid point about urban cats & birds, and many of us agree with you in theory (which is why I keep my cat inside). But as it was pointed out above, the hate and venom of your delivery on a cat appreciation thread leaves much to be desired.

Allergies suck.

Animal abuse, however, sucks even more and is punishable by law.

Try Claritin...and a bit more kindness and understanding of the audience you're targeting here.

Thanks.

I'm allergic to my cat too--and she plays outside, when I'm there to supervise, so she doesn't eat birds. . .

It is important for all cat owners to recognize that domestic cats are an introduced predatory species and to take actions to minimize the impact their cats have on wildlife populations.
It is perhaps more important for the bird-lovers/cat-blamers to recognize that human activity is responsible for massively more bird deaths than our pet cats are. To destroy close to 100% of the native habitat when building urban communities, redo them to our liking, douse them with chemicals and then to believe that they are somehow urban ecosystems which are bird friendly or even anything short of bird hostile is self-deception. Cats often become scapegoats for the real issue - our behavior, and our inability to face the troubling consequences of our own actions regarding all wildlife which inconveniently gets in our way.
Plus, a certain small percentage of the population simply have a cat-hating psychopathy.
