dickfreckle: 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.


There was a recent story on NPR that pretty much linked domesticated cats that are allowed out doors to the decimation of many bird and rodent species. Not only are they sadistic, they are on a mass murder scale.

We know what we must do.

albatros183: Public Savant: 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.

You sound like the kind of inlaw everyone dreads.

Or a breeder that breed the stupid

/Much more likely
//Hope Darwin takes care of your line, seem likely


Wow. That's harsh. So let me point out your grammar error. I think you meant to use the word breeds. It helps to not look stupid when you call others stupid.

I have no idea what you mean by that. The first time I realized that something was amiss was when we - my kids and I - moved after being in one place for many years. A couple of years after we moved I discovered that my daughter had wrapped several of her rodent pets who had died in tissue paper and kept them, She then decided to bring their mummified remains with her to the new house. It was a couple of years after we had moved that I had discovered that she still had the "mummified" remains of a few of her mice pets up in her closet in the habitat that they had expired in.

I managed to convince her that they would best be honored by a very real burial, complete with a funeral service. A few years later she had graduated and gone on about her "adult" business. The guinea pig  massacre happened a few years after that.


It won't be long before she moves on to people :/

albatros183: Draq: 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

The only difference to a cat is that you can't eat a toy.

Thats the problem, he doesn't want to eat, just play to death then gets board, unless it escapes...
/Repeat, love him but has trouble with anything I would consider moral


Uhm. Cats don't understand 'morals'. I believe animals do experience a limited range of emotions (I can tell when both of my cats are pissed off, for example), but I think you're assigning far too much capability for reasoning to them. Even if they could, they don't care. They're mostly vicious killers unless you get a dud like my sister's cat; that one wouldn't go near mice most of the time because she didn't care to. She was still vicious (worse than mined by far in fact), just to people, not rodents.

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