Thread Name: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
So's anyway............One day Seamus looks over the fence and sees wee Moira, with tears on her face, burying a large box. He asks her what she is doing. She tearfully replies that she is burying her hamster because it died. Seamus replies, "I am sorry to hear that, but isn't that an awfully big box for a hamster?" "Not really," she says, "he is inside your feckin' cat!".

Are you ready for this, Clinton?? I agree with you completely on this. For our guest to suggest that hunting is unneccessary for cats, borders on the ridiculous. Cats are predators, and for the most part, carnivores. They are conditioned by thousands of generations of this behaviour. And even if we assumed that it isn't necessary, the cat lacks the ability to make this judgement. And furthermore, what cat do you know that allows itself to be taught any thing that it doesn't want to learn.............LOL?
