Philbb: /she's not really an idiot, she just doesn't think things through sometimes.


I think that was a joke in a Woody Allen movie.

You'd probably char a squirrel just to make it stiff.

Yes, but how did it taste?

I was trying to find an image of Les Stroud cooking his ground squirrel in the Utah canyons and couldn't find a good one.  Then I saw this, and decided to share this instead.

dickfreckle: albatros183: Had to deal with my cat "playing" with a mouse at 4 am and also later in the day because he does not understand the difference between living creature and toy

Well, cats are among the biggest jerks out there. They'll play with their prey for hours before finally killing it, even when the prey is still alive but suffering. They're basically the Jeffery Dahmers of domesticated pets.

I can't think of another animal (though I'm sure they exist) that actually tortures its prey and considers it amusing. A dog will just maul the sh*t out whatever it wants to eat, and either eat it or bring it home as a 'gift.' I don't think large cats toy with prey either. But housecats? Total dicks.


What you call "sadistic," evolution calls "best hunting practices for prey that is faster and/or more vicious than you."

/in nature, if you let prey escape or defend itself out of a misguided sense of mercy or fairness, you will starve
//humanity is the only animal species capable of deluding itself to the point that it would willingly kill itself than violate its own imaginary rules
///and thus the only animal species that has yet discovered the value of civilization

Let's put Mr. Hamster in the microwave! Now he's a balloon! You ask me, "Why did you do that, 'cause it's real sick," but I have to because the universe is entropying...can you say "entropy"? I knew you could!

CSB: my best friend came back to his dorm a day early and his roommate was beating out a storm to "Parent Trap". :o

usually a story like that has some basis to the story teller.


Considering I like older women I find this difficult to believe. Sorry to disappoint you.

Similar anatomy, should be able to fire roast 'em like a squirrel.

/The only reason the homeless are hungry is soup kitchens deter urban hunting.


I work for a hunting and fishing magazine. It is not unheard of for someone here to bring in some squirrel casserole, never tried it, but I've actually heard good things.

Wish they'd take things that seriously in the states.

Read a book on cat behaviour recently, which explained that this behaviour is a result of them not being taught to hunt properly by their mothers. There are a few variations, depending on how exactly the failure occurred. I always wondered about this because I've never observed this alleged "cruel" behaviour in any of our cats (have had 3) and in fact a couple of years ago before the house was finished I used to while away the evenings watching our cat dispatch mice in the living room. She was incredibly fast and efficient. Our cats also always eat their prey, which is another sign that they learned properly when they were small. All 3 of them were strays, and 2 of them were born out of doors to farm cats. The book said that there will likely be more and more problems with loss of proper hunting behaviour with the increase in breeding from queens that never learned to hunt themselves, living entirely from humans. Essentially the fashion for having cats as pets (rather than to keep rodents down) is only about 150 years old. Before that they generally had to hunt to survive long enough to breed anyway.

Maybe he thought it was a guinea pig and tried to cook up a rasher of guinea bacon?

ladyfortuna: Show me a pacifist cat and I'll show you a British children's book about it.


My cat is quite the pacifist... when the ferrets are facing him

As soon as their fuzzy backs are turned he's back to stalking them.

//highly supervised, and short, group play time.
///hell of a lot more worried about the cat than the fuzzbutts

Philbb: Wow. One of my daughters had various rodent pets at one time or another. Her boyfriend often joked about doing cruel things like cooking them, guinea pigs at the time. But everyone knew he was just joking now I wonder.

/me daughter used to let them roam free in her back yard
//a few times she brought back in fewer guinea pigs then she had let out
///it wasn't until after they had all "disappeared" that I found out about it
//I mentioned neighborhood cats and carnivorous birds
/she's not really an idiot, she just doesn't think things through sometimes.


I've been flat drunk off my ass, and never thought "hey let me bbq my cats".  I think it has something to do with that I am a well-balanced individual. I have known a kid in high school which the only thing that is stopping him from killing someone is the fact that he is allergic to alcohol. I'm sure he found some way to get around that though.
