Thread Name: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Bollox!

Cat's are SUPPOSED to hunt.. and they are supposed to hunt small animals like rabbits, quail, mice, and on and on and on...

Ecological disaster?!?!?! That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard... I suspect you're driven not so much by animal 'love' as you are by the incorrect assumption that you can control the world...

Let your cat's out.. let them hunt... they were here before we got here... they'll be here after we're gone...

Too bad about Australia getting flooded by them though... that desert in the middle is gonna end up one big cat box...

Also, don't TRY to change a hunting cat's behaviour, unless you want a really depressed kitty in your house... If you don't let them out to hunt, you have to come up with other indulgences for them... lots of 'toys'... High places to get up onto... Things for them to get under... Oh... and new faces from time to time... even new animals... Keeps 'em on their toes...
