A new tagline for The Price is Right?

November 25th, 2008 · 288 comments

Our anonymous submitter in New Jersey found this note taped to every apartment door in his complex. “We do indeed have a problem with feral cats in our neighborhood, but my sense is that they’ve been around for many (cat) generations…not that people are buying new ones.”

Attention Cat "Owners"

Adds our submitter: “Now that I think about it, I’m probably a bad person for finding this funny, but really, the all-bold, all-caps “LET HER DEATH BE ON YOUR HEAD!!!” is just so perfectly over the top. Personally, I would have gone with “A POX ON ALL YOUR HOUSES!!!”

      You know, in the country, people can’t afford to spay a barn cat that’s likely to be eaten by a coyote, owl, or run down by a car. The procedure for an abundance of kittens has traditionally been drowning of litters. It’s an affordable, sustainable, and time tested method of dealing with cats. You may think it’s cruel, but if you eat meat, just remember, so do they, and they would eat you if you weren’t bigger than them.

      The obvious solution to that is to not get a cat you cannot afford to spay/neuter.

      But the US is full of idiots that have children without being able to afford it, so god knows cats are no exception.

      PS. Drowning kittens? Are you the Hitler of the animal world? Who actually does that in the US (not being xenophobic or anything, this is just where the situation took place)?

      But, okay, the note is still totally funny.

      Who? This is something that has been going on for ages, and not just in the U.S. Remember in the “Prince and the pauper” when the prince had to flee the farm house right in the middle of the task of drowning a litter of kittens? (written by an American, it took place in England) This is how farm families have always dealt with barn cats. It may not be P.C., but it has nothing to do with Hitler; it’s just how it’s always been done. In the country, cats sometimes just show up. They have all kinds of natural and man made enemies. Country people also kill woodchucks and other vermin. If we didn’t, they would destroy our buildings and gardens. It’s easy to be an all out animal lover when you live in the city where most of the animals are well fed dogs and cats. Out here it’s a war with the vermin, and that includes deer, rabbit, woodchuck, coyote, Opossum, (pronounced possum) and moles.

      Cats and dogs are weapons in our arsenal, and we can’t spend a lot of money on them, especially the cats. Cats run wild out here; we give them a warm barn and sometimes a little food, but when there are too many of them, we have to cull them out.

      Barn cats don’t even get names. Like it or not, that’s how it is.

      By the way, I am very familiar with barn cats. Sure they don’t get love and attention, but they most certainly get vet care. All of ours were fixed because we didn’t want kittens. We were responsible cat owners.

      And your point above makes no sense. Why do we have to “cull” the population of cats when they have all those predators that you list above? If you don’t intervene with nature and have your cat spayed, you shouldn’t intervene with nature and kill the resulting litter.

      Sometimes the cats get killed, and sometimes they don’t.

      For you to say you wish I would be killed tells me a lot about you. I don’ t know you, but you sound like a misanthropic pitaphile to me. Or as the hippies so aptly name them, Blissninnies.

      Here is a hypothetical question:

      You are driving down a road lined on both sides with trees. It is imposable to leave the road. Out from one side steps a cute little kitten. Out from the other side steps a human. When you try to engage your breaks, they fail. You can’t avoid the human without hitting the kitten. You can’t avoid the kitten without hitting the human. You have one second to choose. What do you do?

      If you are honest, you will say that you will automatically avoid the human.

      You won’t even think about it.

      If you want to spend a lot of money on vet bills for the sake of keeping barn cats from breeding, go ahead, but the first time you avoid the cat, or cull a human, the rest of us humans will lock you up.

      Shut up. Both of you, just shut the fuck up.

      Any fool that steps out into the road without looking both ways ought to be hit by a car!

      Cute little kitten?
      So cute animals should be protected just because they make you feel all warm and fuzzy?

      Drowning kittens is just the way it is?
      No, asshole. That’s just the way it was. You know, before modern transportation and animal shelters.
      Country people have to destroy “vermin”?
      Did it ever occur to you that you happen to live where deer, woodchucks and opossum have always lived and that communing with nature, not destroying it, is part of living in the country?

      It is indeed sad, in two distinct ways:

      *It’s sad that kitties are born in such conditions and die needlessly.
      *It’s sad that the note-writer lives in a pit of paranoia and is convinced that *all* of his/her neighbors are letting their unspayed/unneutered cats run free, just for the fun of creating more dead kittens.

      The note-writer was obviously sad and pissed off when writing the note. I can’t blame him/her. People who don’t fix their pets and then let them run around outside are douchebags.

      I don’t agree that having an outdoor cat in general is always bad (especially if you don’t live in an urban area), but I’m willing to cut the note-writer some slack for the upsetting experience of having to deal with dead and dying kittens.

      I would propose that this note is sad in a third way, because this stupid, hateful bitch is going to tell her daughter how everyone else in the world is horrible, and how all her nice neighbors are secretly kitten-killers, and how DEATH is ON THEIR HEADS. Which is pretty fucked up, given that this would be a good time to explain that we are responsible for our pets. I mean, if it was a problem, I’d use my time to ring up the Humane Society or animal control instead of using it to write probably the worst note you could ever find on your door.

      Once again, it’s the humans who suffer.

      BLAME. It’s like a sheep’s bladder — easy to toss around (or heave, hurl, punt, bat, hike, kick, pass, lob, throw, bounce, or roll) — but more difficult to accept, catch, or dribble.

      The woman who created this flier has made a classic error. In her fit of furious indignation, she has lashed out at the very people who are closest to her: her neighbors.

      If she’d paused long enough to think things through, she’d have realized that her fury was being misdirected.

      If she’d made herself a nice hot toddie, dimmed the lights of her boudoir, put on a nice negligee, and then stared at her reflection in a full length mirror (from the most flattering angles), she would have recognized where the blame for the all the dead kittens truly lies.

      Feral cats should not be having unprotected sex.

      It’s irresponsible.

      Don’t kid yourselves. Unwanted pregnancies aren’t the only problematic end result. The rate of feline STDs is as high now as it has ever been.

      We’re talking “rocket pube high.”

      For just a few dollars a day you could help me help her supply every feral cat in the neighborhood with nine lifetimes’ worth of kitty condoms.

So out of sadness for poor dead kitties, I kind of sympathize with this woman’s anger. Still a ridiculous note though.

      Well, under normal conditions yes. However, hitting the brakes on a wet road combined with the fact that I had some asshole seriously tailgating me, would not have been particularly advisable. I think my options were either risk wrecking my car or kill the cat. Had I had time to actually weigh them.. in reality I didn’t see the cat until it was about 2 feet in front of my car. Like I said, it was foggy and the cat was fucking black. I didn’t even know it was a cat until I went back to see what I hit and if it was still alive. I then cried all the way home. It totally had a collar.

      Are you shitting me?

      Slowly is a relative term sure, so if you want me to be specific- I was going 25ish in a 50. I would love to have your apparent mad awesome eyesight that allows you to be able to see a black cat, in the pitch black of night, on an unlit road, and in the fog, before it is right in front of your car. Not to mention the cat-like reflexes required to brake in the short distance between you and said cat. There are also a number of animals that may be on the road at night in my area, so yes doubt as to what the fuck exact creature that was, is warranted until closer examination. It has nothing to do with the shape of my car, which is a ridiculous suggestion I might add. I could see that there was something there obviously. Discerning what it was EXACTLY in the space of 1 second under said conditions is an entirely different matter.

      Had it at least been daylight, I probably would have seen the cat much sooner and successfully avoided hitting it. So fuck you.

      If there are a number of animals which frequent your roadways, you should be all the more ready to meet such a circumstance, not less so.
      I too wish you had the reflexes required to operate a motor vehicle safely on a foggy night. By your own admission, you do not, Next time don’t drive in conditions you can’t handle safely.
      You’d probably be better off not exaggerating so.
      Like “pitch black of night” when I assume you were using your headlights.
      Your view has everything to do with the shape of your car. A longer hood means that the visible road surface is farther away from your car. A shorter hood, closer. Two feet…damn near no front hood.

      “Slowly is a relative term sure, so if you want me to be specific- I was going 25ish in a 50.”

      While “slowly” is a relative term, the proper way to measure it would be relative to the road/weather conditions, not the posted speed limit.

      To do otherwise is “a ridiculous suggestion”.

      Just take responsibility for killing the cat and stop blaming everything from the Sun for setting, the air for being foggy, and the cat for being black.

      the very first sentence of HolyHamsterBatman’s very first comment admits to running over the cat. additionally, anyone who has been through a driver’s ed program has been taught that it’s better to hit the animal than risk your own life by slamming on brakes. yes, it’s sad…but sometimes it must be done.

      honestly, Canthz B, do you start shit just for the sake of starting shit?

      I never said anything about “slamming on brakes”.
      Just applying them. If it’s not safe to avoid the small animal, kill the SOB.
      Just don’t give me a BS story about a tailgater, in two-foot visibility, on a curvy road which has a 50mph speed limit. Let alone the fact that curvy roads don’t generally have 50mph speed limits.
      Admitting running over the cat is not the same as taking responsibility for it. HHB, far from taking responsibility, offered up a number of excuses.
      Fact of the matter is, I don’t believe HHB actually ran over a cat. The story is fantastic to say the least.

      Yes, I often do start shit for the sake of starting shit.
      You’re catching on quite nicely, but still can’t seem to resist getting sucked in, ihyitn. :-P

      In HHB’s opinion, it was not safe to try to avoid killing the small animal. Since he/she was there, I think he/she is a better authority on the situation than you are. Try not being shitty to someone who obviously feels badly about what happened.

      Yeah, what Fresca said.

      Oh, BUT, if it ‘totally had a collar ‘ it might have been an idea to check it for ID, and failing that to take the corpse to the local vet to see if it was ID micro-chipped. Only thing worse than having your cat killed is having your cat vanish and never knowing if it was killed.

      So, uh, in conclusion – you’re both wrong. And right. But CB is funnier, so I’m siding with him. Anyone for a cup of tea?

    • #17.14   HolyHamstersBatman bang

      I do believe that I said I felt terrible about it. You’re acting like I killed the thing for fun. And yes, I did APPLY the brakes, it didn’t help in the least, mostly because that reaction didn’t happen till the cat was under the car anyway. The only chance of saving this cat would have been to actually SLAM on the brakes, whilst swerving recklessly. Oh that and having superhero eyesight that spots well camoflaged animals through fog and darkness.

      Clearly Canthz B, you are unfamiliar with driving in fog and, by the sound of it, driving in general. You probably don’t realize that you AREN’T supposed to drive with your brights on, as it just makes things worse. Also, fog limits visibility as it is, making it rather difficult to see very far in front of the car, with lights on or off.

      Yes, it was awful, the sound of that poor cat under my tires is haunting. I did stop, go back, and risk the chance of getting hit myself standing out on that road to look for the body. I found it, but it was a mess. I did try to look for an id but unfortunately it only had the collar and no tag. As I was stopped there, a police car came by and pulled over. I told the policewoman I hit this cat..and she looked at me like I was crazy for actually stopping to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for it. She told me to head on home as there was nothing I could do for it now and that I shouldn’t be hanging out on this road as it was dangerous and called whoever it is that scrapes dead animals off the roads. I let her handle it from there and made my way home.

      I didn’t think about the microchip thing at the time though, I wish I had. But maybe checking for microchips is something they do with dead animals that they are called to come get off the road though, when the animal is obviously house cat anyway. I hope anyway. Yes, I do wish I had not hit the cat, but like I said, I didn’t have any other option.

      Thanks to the rest of you that aren’t being ignorant assholes just for the sake of it.

      I am an absolute idiot about animals, I had 11 cats and 2 dogs at one time and they were all well fed, clean, well doctored and every single one of them was speutered. A few of them roamed on our quiet dead end street, but never more than the neighbors yard.

      Anyway – to the point – I have been in hamster’s situation before. It’s kill or be killed/maimed/kill someone else sometimes. if it came to the point of killing a cat/dog/raccoon/opposum/deer or killing myself, a car full of teenagers or newlyweds, senior citizens, sorry, the cat loses.

      You live with the guilt and sorrow and move on a little faster than if you took a human life.

      And in most cases, I like animals better than most humans.

      I feel strongly that cats belong inside. When left to roam outside they can damage property and destroy wildlife, along with occasionally causing car accidents.

      If they’re not spayed or neutered, they are also producing many more cats to compound the problems mentioned above.

      How do you know it’s foggy when it’s pitch black outside? How is it even foggy at all when it’s pitch black outside. Where do you live? I’m not saying it can’t happen, I’ve just never seen it, so it seems kind of radical to me. Also, why didn’t you just say it was pitch black in the first place. Oh, and is it hard to see driving home in pitch black with fog while crying? I don’t advise crying and driving in normal conditions let alone the kind you described. And one last thing: Did the officer look at you funny because you were on the road looking for a cat you thought you hit, or because you were crying about a cat you hit?

      Shit happens. And I’ve had police officers tell me that if you have a choice between a human life and the life of an animal while driving– you’re supposed to hit the animal and save a human life.

      Well, since I’ve already said that I was just stirring a turd and don’t give a shit about whether or not someone runs over a cat in the road, I’d like to thank you all for your participation in this farce.
      I’d also just like to point out to HHB that I’ve been driving for over 30 years, I never said to use high beams (“brights”–hee hee), and that I still don’t believe that on a “pitch black night” she hit a cat on a dark, curvy, foggy road with a 50mhp speed limit. That she then went back, got out of her car, in the pitch black, on a foggy, curvy roadway and put her life in danger to look at a dead cat.
      First she says she didn’t hit the brakes because she was being tailgated, now says she did, but it was too late.

      The only reason I fucked with you is because your story has too many holes which you try, ham-fistedly, to back-fill.

      It can be pitch dark and foggy, where I live it happens a lot in the fall and winter. As for knowing it’s foggy when it is pitch dark, it’s reasonable to think that HHB was driving with the headlights on, in which case you can see just how foggy it is. And brights make it worse in the fog.

      Okay, Canthz_B, I usually find your posts funny, and was giving you the benefit of the doubt until you used that phrase. It ranks right up there with the phrase “With all due respect,” which, as a law professor of mine explained, really means “with no respect at all.”

      My first comment about not hitting the brakes..I probably should have clarified. No, I did not immediately SLAM on the brakes. I did TAP them, late, in a panicky shit shit what do I do kind of way. Either way, the brakes were not the way to go. I really don’t care if you don’t believe me, it’s what happened. The cat’s dead, nothing to be done about it now, nothing I could have done about it at the time other than just straight up chosen not to drive that night. The odds were not stacked in this cat’s favor, and that is not my fault. Yes, I ran over it, could I help it? No. End of.

      Next time I run over something hopefully it will be a litter of kitten carcasses that I can then deposit on your front door step Canthz B, after having fried them some in a communal microwave of course.

      Nice to see that even in your 40 something years of age, you still keep in touch with the kid inside by behaving like a 12 year old.

      I bet you don’t believe the holocaust happened either.

      Also I believe your immaturity lies in your own trail of remarks. First you say that I should have hit the brakes. So I tell you why that wasn’t the appropriate solution.. Then you go on a tirade about wanting me to take “responsibility” for hitting the cat. Uh, I think I admitted that I hit the cat..the whole start of this thread. I only added the reasons why I had no choice but to hit the cat so that someone like you wouldn’t jump all over my case acting like I was driving like a maniac and killed the cat on purpose, but you did anyway. Then you go from demanding that I take responsibility, to accusing me of making up some ridiculous story about running over a cat. Yeah..your motives here are just to argue for the sake of argueing. Real mature. I also only called you names that you have so far demonstrated being fully deserving of.

      Don’t like the dead kitties on your doorstep though eh? Would you prefer I leave the cat that I actually ran over, as partial evidence? I’ll even have the asshole that was tailgating me deliver it, I’m sure he saw the whole incident and can tell you EXACTLY what happened. In fact, I’ll get the police woman as well. Also, I’ll get in my time machine, go back to that night and do it again, only this time I’ll film it. Will that suffice?

      Oh but that would be quite an ordeal to go through..especially considering I don’t ACTUALLY care if you believe me or not.

      Hey, you’re the ones comparing the holocaust victims to dead stray cats, so who is really being insensitive here? Never once did I say “Me running over a cat is like the holocaust”. Even if I ran over a cat for every day of my life so far I would still in no way find the two things comparable. As I have already pointed out, I was comparing CB to those ignorant fools who don’t believe the holocaust happened. He is soo damn bound and determined to prove that it didn’t happen, just like those other idiots, even though doing so is of no use to anyone. It is a comment on HIM, NOT THE EVENT. Though apparently that is too fine of a distinction for your wee brains to comprehend.

    To me, it looks as if the animal in the picture is a hedgehog.

    Mutant, crazy hedgehogs, that were courageously terminated by the residents cats.

    Yep, cats and most other small predators have evolved over millions of years to live exclusively inside human houses, it’s their natural habitat. Whatever you do, be sure to be a responsible pet owner. Make certain you keep them confined all their lives inside a 15′ x 20′ apartment and never let them experience fresh air, sunshine, or the feel of soil beneath their paws. And while you’re at it, by all means be sure to chop their balls off or cut them open and rip their uteruses out. They love that shit, it makes them feel like they’re loved by someone. And whatever you do, don’t let them eat meat-most predatory carnivores actually prefer fancy name-brand processed pet food that contains lots of brocolli, spinach, carrots, whole-grain wheat, and other healthy things that brainwashed non-feline yuppies like to eat. That’s exactly the diet that their digestive systems are naturally adapted to. Oh, and how dare they have the natural instinct to screw and reproduce, it certainly must be the your neighbors’ fault that they’re like that. Don’t they realize that they only exist for the pleasure of us responsible pet owners? Surely the pinnacle and eventual goal of of all evolutionary development is to be dressed up in uncomfortable fucked-up outfits and photographed for the amusement of other responsible pet owners? Few people realize that cats and dogs are actually just small, oddly-shaped humans that share all our opinions, tastes, likes, and dislikes. People who don’t understand this great truth are irresponsible pet owners. Like me. My cat has balls. It has never been in the house in it’s entire life, and never will be. It eats rats, mice, rabbits, and table scraps. He’s a fighter, too-he fights other cats, possums, skunks, and anything else that enters his territory. One night he’ll probably meet a big coyote and won’t be able to courageously fight any more. In other words, he’s a cat, and seems to be quite happy just being a cat, too.

      It is ignorant morons like yourself (who let their cats run loose and un-neutered) who are responsible for feral cat problems.
      One mindless idiot who lets their cat get pregnant or impregnate the cat of another mindless idiot can be the start of a massive colony. These cats are often plagued by diseases such as cat flu and feline leukaemia and they suffer terribly. Failing that, they are attacked by dogs or people, hit by cars or “culled” by councils who can’t cope.
      You need to grow up and take responsibility for your pet- trying to glamorise your lack of care for your cat just makes you sound pathetic.

She’s spayed now, thanks to the Humane Society, and she spend her time inside, but she has enough to eat, she’s not out in the cold, and near as I can tell– since I’m not Dr. Doolittle and all– she’s happy. She’s certainly loved and provided for for the first time in her life. You wanna be natural, Mr. Hippie Shit, then why do you have a cat?

      I think you’re confusing feral with wild, Team Debris. Feral cats are cats descended from domesticated animals. They did not evolve in the wilds of New Jersey, they were selectively bred for thousands of years to coexist with human companions. Just because they can survive on their own doesn’t mean it’s either good for them or the local ecology.

      Debris, did you just post this as a farce to attract attention? If not, you’re a bit of an idiot. As a taxpayer, you should be a little more supportive of spaying/neutering. It’s far easier to control the overpopulation of cats by spaying one than having to euthanize thousands of strays that are created by unneutered/unspayed cats. Cities have to pay quite a lot of money for animal control, when prevention is far less costly. Don’t be an asshole.

      As to whether it’s God’s plan let the strong survive, give me a fucking break. It’s certainly not God’s plan to let thousands of cats starve from a lack of food, or get run over in the streets. Apartments might not be part of their natural habitat, but neither are cars.

      Secondsout, you seem to be one of the few that is capable of recognising sarcasm. And yes, of course I do feed my cat, it doesn’t live only on rodents. It’s fat as hell, actually. I still find it odd that “animal lovers” see animals as being defective unless they have half their original parts cut off-I’ve seen people profess to like cats, but their cat has everything that defines it as a cat surgically removed. I don’t disagree with neutering cats in areas where there is a problem with feral ones, especially cities. But you could also apply that logic to homeless people-many of them are diseased, starving, and freezing, too. We don’t have much of a feral cat problem here because coyotes eat all of them. Also, if everybody neutered every cat and dog they owned, they would become extinct. They aren’t immortal.

      But if you have to mutilate an animal to keep it in your home, are you really being very humane, or a bit selfish to some degree?
      I mean, the cat didn’t ask to come and live with you, it sure didn’t ask to have its claws cut off (at the knuckle) for the sake of your furniture.

      this is long, and I ain’t gonna read it all, and that damn ctrl button is so temperamental. Hmm.

      That first post was crap. Cut your cat’s nails yourself (not that hard), leave em inside, or if you’re gonna let them out for the love of god cut out the jewels. Feed em some decent dry food, and not that wet shit. Every now and then tip a little tuna juice (just a little-it’s really fattening) Let them play and have fun because they are PETS. Feral cats are the worst (fresno sucks for this) If you let cats make more cats and don’t take care of them FUCK YOU. If you take in feral cats (which I have done) and then decide to cover the costs of treating them (which can be expensive) and fixing them (which you can always find deals for) just to have them die on you (which usually happens) GET OVER IT. You either try and do some good, and be happy with it, or don’t do it. You can’t change anything by being angry. At least that kitten had someone to love him for a little while.

      I picked up a kitten (just a year old) and her three kittens a few years ago. I found a home for one kitten, took the other two to the pound (and they were adopted) and took the Momma Cat in to be fixed so she could roam around outside and I would feed her. While she was out from the surgery my sister (who’s a vet tech) called me and told me she had FIV, because she hadn’t been spayed already. So we put her down while she was out.

      I loved that cat

    Ignorant shit moron reporting back for duty. First of all, I don’t “own” a cat. It appeared. I fed it. It stayed. For six years so far. Is healthy. Has a life. Is not neglected in the least, as a matter of fact, is spoiled rotten. And btw, it does have a barn it can go into if it so desires, just like cats around here always have. How the hell do you know that “my cat” isn’t just as happy or happier than your cat? I expected as much from the great brainwashed mass of anthropomorphic consumerite Kalifornians. News flash: people have kept cats for thousands of years exactly like I describe, and they have apparantly done quite well. It hasn’t been until the last few years that people have completely went off their rockers and decided that cats are people. Feral cats are definitely a problem. Simple solution-kill them. And Carrieknowseverything, the statement that predators can’t live off their natural prey is the most moronic thing I think I’ve ever read in my life. Some people will believe anything the tv commercials tell them. How the hell have many species of cats been around longer than the human species, then? The domestic cat is almost identical to the European/Asian wildcat, which has seemed to survive just fine somehow without you feeding them Fancy Feast Happy Kitty Food. The bobcats around here seem to live just fine off of chipmunks, rabbits, and mice-maybe nobody told them they were malnourished and unhappy.

      Actually, killing feral cats does not solve the problem. That just opens a territory for a new cat to reproduce in. What does help the feral cat population problem is trapping the feral cats, neutering/spaying them, and re-releasing them. Then they hold down the territory but don’t reproduce.

      The point is– just because you love carrots and you feel stronger and healthier when you eat them, doesn’t mean I’ll be stronger and healthier if I eat them. Hell, I may be allergic to carrots.

      It’s not “cats are people,” it’s “you’re responsible for something you bring into your home.” People used to live outside, but it would be frowned upon for someone to have a child, then turn it out once it was old enough to walk under the waterhead excuse that “it’s natural.” Hell, to make it clear that the issue is not “cats are people,” because with reading comprehension like yours, it needs to be painfully clear, if someone brought a plant into their house and expected it to magically live because plants in nature do, they’d be an idiot. They are responsible for putting it where it can grow and watering it, because fuck, it’s a plant in a house, it’s already unnatural. Domestic cats aren’t bobcats, and urban areas are not the goddamn woods. “Natural” is not part of the equation a lot of the time, because we’ve taken it upon ourselves to alter nature.

      Ok, quit haranguing Debris Blanc guys, seriously.

      All she is saying, is that we need to build cat barns all over the place. Oh and to kill all the feral cats so that the domestic indoor kitties can play outside and turn into new and improved outdoor feral kitties. That we still feed and build barns for. Wait…now I’m just confused.

      Ahhh, Debris, you finally got me to the point where I feel the urge to post. “News flash: people have kept cats for thousands of years exactly like I describe, and they have apparantly done quite well. ” Yeah, yeah I know. I grew up in a country where spaying or neutering your pets was (still is) unheard of. Let me tell you how “quite well” really works. In your average town, the streets are crawling with stray cats and dogs. Have you ever seen, or heard, a stray dog pack? I heard them howl at night and it is not pretty.
      I like to say this on the subject – if you want to keep your cat or dog intact, fine. But then it’s your responsibility to ensure your pet has a satisfying sex life. I don’t care how you do it. Get on all fours and let your great Dane have his fun. You think it’s cruel to cut their balls off, well I think it’s cruel to leave them on when the animal can never get any release. BTW as a kid, I’ve seen cats in heat who couldn’t get any, and that’s not pretty, either.
      Lemme tell you something else. When my Mom was ten years old, guess what one of her chores was? DROWNING KITTENS. They had a cat; they could not neuter the cat; the cat produced a litter every five months. It was the 10 year old’s responsibility to drown each litter. Would you wish that on anybody’s kid? The only reason you and your cat get away with “cat having balls” with no major consequences is because everyone else in your area is a responsible pet owner and so your cat is uncapable of fathering hundreds of unwanted kittens every year.

    Maybe if the bitch had a job she wouldnt have so much time on her hands with which to offend other hard-working folks. Idle hands make the devil’s work. And by the way, cats are considered delicacies in other lands and there is nothing that makes you morally any better than them. You can only say so becasue you are spoiled americans who do nto really understand what starvation is. take this lady. she is likely overweight and would eat that cat in a heartbeat if she was denied Big Macs for a month straight. So really, she is most like a spoiled fat bitch whose only purpose on life is to make other people miserable and try and make herself feel better for the waste of space she actually is.

      Sometimes indoor children are the worst. Like the former upstairs neighbours. The single dad was a hippie and left his children, Captain Chaos and Thunderfoot at home with babysitters. Those kids never went anywhere. They thumped in the house from 7 am to 11 pm every day. It sounded like they were playing WWF Smackdown most of the time.

      Indoor kids, my ass. These kids were feral and should have had access to a barn to call home.

      B) Feed the feral cats to the starving children.

      C) Do both. Feed the feral cats to the starving children, then harvest the kids for juicy meta-”kiddy” meat.

If you have jewelry or other items to donate, please contact her – what a great cause.

      HAHAHAHAHAHA….Where are these slow lethargic cats who have been spayed or neutered you speak of??? Seriously, I’d love to meet one. I have 2 fixed males, who are relatively calm until “Crazy” time hits then I have to duck for cover while they run off the energy. Neither are what I would call fat, either.
      Honestly, I’m not even getting involved in this argument other than this one post.
      My cats are fixed, I monitor their diet and make sure they get indoor formula. They get put on leads and get supervised outdoor time. They are not declawed. they get bi-annual vet visits and live happy lives. How do I know they are happy? I dunno, being slpayed out on the floor showing their bellies and purring louder than a truck?
      Can they hunt for themselves? Yes. we do not have a pest problem and have not had one since they moved in. Do I want them to? I really don’t care, it’s impossible for me to stop them, I just wish they wouldn’t leave the corpses on my bed.
      I do get mad at assholes who either try to anthromorphize their pets and try to make them vegetarian or vegan like they are and expect them to do well.
      I don’t mind there being a feral population in my area, it keeps the rodent population down. So long as they aren’t breeding a problem and spreading disease, Let them be.
      I’d rather the feral population be looked after to a degree so they don’t infect the “owned” population.
      I know it’s asking a lot, but just use some common sense people.
      If I wanted to read a rant thread about cat care, I’d go onto a cat lovers blog site.

    Intoducing Kittys Who Died
    (sing-along link with a great VJ intro…)

    Kitty got fused to her sibling’s corpse
    Smells like a shoe by Apartment Nine
    If you let 11 strays into the yard
    Thousands more in a matter of time
    Leila crawled away from there, up to my door
    She looked like she might thrive, then she died
    She was a fighter feline!

    Those are kitties who died, died
    You should all be ashamed, how they died

    See- by the porch you smell the kitties there, rotting
    Something died up in the attic; it’s foul in the bathroom
    Slimy kitty corpse , undiscovered and wet
    Funky odor’s horrendous, you were right that they were dead
    Those are two more dead felines
    Two more cats that died

    Those are kitties who died, died
    You should all be ashamed, how they died

    You should take drive by just to smell the fumes
    Rotten pungent smells, like the smell of a tomb
    Leila gave out, you should be ashamed
    Really bad shit; cruel and inhumane
    and really, that’s what I’ll tell my six-year-old daughter
    You people like the slaughter!

    Those are kitties who died, died
    You should all be ashamed, how they died

      Oh yeah Frankie, well fuck you! I have real friends. Amy and Mishee are real people. CB and Wade and Timo are too. What do you have? A closet full of stuffed monkeys and a pair of big girl panties on your head, that’s all. Why would I take life seriously. Where’s the fun in that? You want I should be a drone like you?

    Last night around midnight I was turning left onto my street and I saw a cat limping and pulling itself through a puddle of blood in the middle of the intersection. I guessed it had already been partially run over, and I made the mistake of turning back around. I don’t know what I thought I could have done for it, seeing as I would have gotten run over if I had gone to help and I didn’t have anything to carry it in and who knew if it had rabies or something. Just as I pulled up and spotted the cat, a car going about 50 mph ran over it and the body flew up in the air. I sobbed for about 10 minutes. It was the most grotesque thing I had ever seen in real life. So it makes me real fucking mad that people don’t spay/neuter their pets, or they let their cats roam around everywhere, because that’s what fucking happens.

      The same thing happened to me. I saw an animal get hit and it flew into the air. I just tried to keep telling myself it was a raccoon and not somebody’s pet. I couldn’t really tell, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a cat. Somehow that made me feel a little better, but not much.

    I had a litter of kittens rotting outside my job once. My boss tried to make me pick them up with a shovel and put them in a garbage bag, but the smell actually made me throw up. His response was that he’d eaten sandwiches that smelled worse. So I made him go do it and laughed hysterically when he started gagging.

    I know several people who think it’s a good idea to provide shelter and food to feral cats — without ever considering that there are groups they can call on the phone who will humanely trap and neuter these feral cats at no charge. The feral cats, having all they need to reproduce dozens of even more feral cats, do just that. There’s no excuse for having thousands of feral cats run around everywhere.

    So yeah, making fun of people who care about animals makes no sense.

    This website is run by folks who are cruel and stupid. It’s underlying premise is: “anytime someone hurts my fweelings, they must be wrong and so I’ll make fun of them for hurting my fweelings”. Not much logic here…

    You must have the IQ of a gnat.

    Most of the time, I find the postings here humorous and irrelevant. This posting, however, is neither.

    Homeless/feral pets, esp. cats, are a real problem. Whoever wrote this has every right to feel this way, and I certainly don’t find it “melodramatic” or “over the top” as some have posted.

    If you’re really so callous as to find the suffering of animals humorous, then I pity you. And I pity the world we’re stuck living in.

    I also find the fact that you would post this rather disturbing, and I don’t think I’m going to be coming around here anymore. Anyone who finds this amusing certainly isn’t the kind of person I want to associate with.

    To equate this with a note complaining about dirty microwaves in the office or excessively playing show tunes is frankly unforgivable.

    Wow, depressing… ok, so to sum up, cats are cats and humans are not cats and therefore have very little idea what cats aspire to do with they’re life. The best we can do is try and not hit em with cars (Hamster I’m sorry to hear about your accident, I had something similar happen and I can attest to the fact that “cat-like reflexes” aren’t all they’re cracked up to be), feed em from time to time, and try our best to keep the little rascals outta trouble. They most definitely are animals and will continue to act accordingly be it a romp with the opposite sex or a slightly beefy brawl with the neighbor fluff ball, but god DAMN it if you don’t live in MY house! That being said, there are RULES around here frisky! A) No relentless spawning of any nature. And 2) No musking up my furniture! That’s pretty much it, play by the rules and you’ll get free health care, a full meal plan, a roof over you head (including pest control), and plenty of free time to climb trees, hunt, run amok, what have you… HOWEVER! SHOULD RULE A OR 2 BE BROKEN, I shall call upon those of my species who actually SPECIALIZE in the removal of certain parts which may, or may not, be missed. This is not a threat, if at anytime you feel you are being mislead, mistreated, or misrepresented in anyway, feel free to find your own condo… I am even will to assist in this task, although make no mistake, you will be missed. That is all.

    p.s. This lady’s neighbors are lucky, I woulda left the dead cats on their doorsteps, no note… screw passive aggressive… Massive aggressive!

  • #74   cat fight!

    [...] last summer, sylvia in new york was just chillin’ out, watching tv one night when she noticed a cat had wandered through the open window. sylvia, an animal-lover, assumed he was a stray (he didn’t have a collar), but “he was super cute and affectionate, so we let him stay a little while. he decided to make himself comfortable and fell asleep.” a few days later, sylvia saw the same cat running down the sidewalk outside her apartment. not wanting the poor kitty to get hit by a car or picked up by animal control, sylvia scooped him up and brought him inside. “i was going to ask around and see if anyone nearby owned him,” she says, but her neighbor beat her to the punch. “she knocked on our door and explained that an employee at the nail salon downstairs had seen me take him inside, and i told her i thought he was a stray. the woman seemed okay, took the cat, and i thought that was the end of it.” the neighbor, it seems, thought otherwise. related: a new tagline for the price is right?

    i don’t think this was harsh enough.
    i would have put the dead kittens on their doorstep, with the letter, then stolen their cat and have him/her fixed, then send them the bill, then report them to the RSPCA. Then i would find a myriad of other ways to make their lives awful.
    This is really sad though..

    They were probably feral kittens. If the note-poster was so concerned about the problem, she should trap and get them fixed herself. I bet there is a low-cost or free trap-neuter-release program in New Jersey…
