A blogger brags her cats have killed animals...

A blogger brags her cats are avid hunters and have killed all the bunnies within a two block radius of her home? Your comments would be appreciated. Oh, and now she's refering people here. Smiles and waves.

So, are you a member of one of the aboriginal tribes of this land, as in full blooded?

Bird Advocate said...

...and your point is? Ha ha ha ha ha! Are you attempting to invalidate my right to protect the ecology of my birthplace? I served America in the military for three years, eight months, and twenty-two days, more than half of which was in a combat zone or at a remote site.
Back to your question, as irrelevant as it is. One of my direct ancestors was disowned from the family for marrying my Eastern Cherokee ancestress.

Marianne said...

Your answer would be 'no'.

Bird Advocate said...

...and you have no point. Are you a native American princess?
If so, what moral authority does that give you to question my right to my opinion about irresponsible pet owners and cat colony managers who arrogantly inflict their animals on our ecology and on us?
Please try to be convincing here. I have PTSD and I am easily bored.

Cats have no place in "nature" in America, but keep saying that. It is easily disproved, and is great laugh relief for our birder readers. Cats deserve a place in the wild here about as much as a wart hog.

"I am easily bored."
Obviously.

"our birder readers"
Yep, 'ya'll' have so many readers.

Gonna leave you now, pretty much the way I found you, pretty much all by your lonesome.
So very glad I don't have to be you.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Cats and dogs are domesticated animals. They should NEVER be allowed out to roam and kill animals as they please. It is ignorant and careless to allow any pet to run wild.
I treat my three dogs and cat as part of my family. (My son does not run around killing birds and bunnies either)
Too many people just don't care about their environment.

Birdfreak said...

The only cats that belong in the wild (in the US) are bobcat, panther/puma (in Florida), Lynx, Jaguar (rare) and the dwindling populations of jaguarundi and ocelot in southern Texas. Feral cats do not belong.
There are many many resources on the large amounts of birds killed by feral cats - 7.8 million birds annually on the lowest end.
Do a quick google search and you will find hundreds of links to scientific (not rants) information about the problem of feral cats.
Keep up the good work Bird Advocate. True naturists, conservationists, birders, and environmentally concious people respect your views.

Bird Advocate said...

Veery, thank you for the backup on this! It shows I'm not just a lone voice in the wilderness. I love y'alls forum and visit regularly. Tell Birdfreak I said "Hey!" :-)

Bird Advocate said...

Thank you, Birdfreak. The cat people have been coming out of the wood work, so your support is appreciated very much.
One of them (whose post is still waiting moderation) mocks me for being "lonesome" here. Little did she know I've had wonderful supporters like you and Bo (Fatbirder), among others.
Bo is a gentleman and scholar as well as being absolutely dedicated to the preservation of our birds.

Birdfreak said...

I agree totally that Bo is a great person and has created an excellent resource for birders around the world. A few bird haters aren't going to stop the conservation cause.

Bird Advocate said...

You got that right, Birdfreak. There are millions of birders and other conservationists in America, and I firmly believe many of us have had it up to here with an alien pest being given priority over our own fauna!

I am a cat owner, and a bird lover. Cats are domesticated animals, and do not belong outside, killing animals. "I hate to be overly logical," but I personally do not want my cats killing disease-carrying rodents. I love my cats too much to expose them to diseases. My cats live inside, where they will never be hit by a car, never attacked my cats, dogs, or wild animals, and will have a much longer life-expectancy than their outside-dwelling counterparts.

Bird Advocate said...

Thank you, Snowy Owl, for your wise actions. I believe the majority of our cat owners are responsible and feel the same as you.

Okay, ta ta, Marianne, you did not come across as being too shiny among the jam up environmental heroes who posted.
