You Can Have My Kittens When You Pry Them From My Cold Dead Arms


New Zealand environmentalists campaign to ban kittens:

Morgan called on his countrymen Tuesday to make their current cat their last in order to save the nation's unique bird species. He set up a website, called Cats To Go, depicting a tiny kitten with red devil's horns. The opening line: "That little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer."

That little ball of fluff might be a "natural born killer," but it's MY natural born killer. Keep your paws off.

5 How about just keeping the cat indoors? Or.... google "CatBib." Keeps cats from targeting birds.

Or how about we just tell the idiot from New Zealand to shut up.

I mean, New Zealand. Not as relevant as Australia, and they're populated by the descendents of British criminals. As for Britain, we gave back their bust of Churchill. So really, why are we even paying attention to any of them?

/I'm an armed American and I have a cat. Wanna make something of it?

6 I vote the "just shut up one".

7 I bet Gareth would be just ducky with marsupial wolves. Or maybe even cannibals. I bet he has velvet unicorns on his bedroom wall.

8 Just a second, here.

Cats ARE a menace to native birdlife in both Australia and New Zealand. New Zealand has some wonderfully weird small flightless birds that are prime pickings for feral moggies.

In Australia cats also play havoc with the local reptile population, and here I mean small to medium lizards, not some of the more interesting venomous snakes. They are also partial to frogs.

Not only that, but for some reason, after a couple of generations in the wild, your basic domestic foot-warmer grows to 12 kilograms plus, with an appetite to match.

Here in Australia, it is common practice to shoot any cat seen more than 1 kilometer from a farm-house, as it is probably a feral.

They have taken over many areas previously dominated by another destructive feral, the European fox, probably because cats can climb trees and ransack birds nests.

Yes, they can and do munch on another stupid import, the European rabbit, but not to any major effect on that population

9 C'mon, fer cryin' out loud. That's what cats DO!!! They are NATURAL PREDATORS. And my 9 pound Katy took on a fox, and won. (Had to go to the vet to get patched up, but the fox didn't make it!!)
Also, any "bird" that don't fly AIN'T A BIRD!!!

10 When I was a student a philosopher friend invented a cat-lovers bird-table.
Never got around to building one but its a workable potential product. The table is wide and low covered with an adhesive. Birds stick to it like flies on those sticky papers. Catsdo the rest at their leasure.
Maybe theres now a market opening for it in New Zealand.

11 Excuse my spelling...leisure I meant.

Posted by: Axel at January 22, 2013 08:32 PM

12 ...oh, for certain parties who may be reading...the adhesive has to be specially devised sothat crows, ravens or other corvids wont stick ;-)

13 Ive got these really big traps ...for poachers.
Theyll snap your leg in two in a breath.

14 Put cats in the house. Send kids out with loaded BB guns.
When all the birds are dead, set the cats free.
End of story.
