It is for the tail if the cat ever catches it! LOL!


Isis did that once, she was a very keen tail chaser even when she was
elderly (she lived to be well over 16 and was a tail chaser almost to
the end) and one morning I was getting dressed for work while watching
her chase her tail and she went faster and faster and faster and
finally she managed to pin the prey down and administer a bite!

The look she gave me said "I DON'T believe I just did that!"

Rabies titers only cost about $15-$20! Wanna buy a "Rolex" or some
"waterfront' property" at half-price? ;-)


Really?!

The titres were $190 each. They have to go to KSU, so maybe that adds
to the cost? One cat needed to be sedated, and that ran at c.$100, to
make the $500 total.

Yeah, a 'Rolex' would be cool. A waterfront Rolex would be even better.
I bet you've got one of them available, too...

Bu bu but many people let their cats outdoor *because* they don't

want to
deal with the waste or scooping and cleaning litter boxes..


yes they do and that really annoys me! Don't judge the rest of us
I/O cat owners on that, many don't have this attitude.


Its getting more and more difficult for me to release ferals after
neutering.


Are they only released to maintained colonies? It must be harder if
they're not.

Great idea. Maybe some of these points will make a few people

think twice
about swinging open the door.

He certainly suggested that cats can be happy indoors. Of course he

feels
cats can be happier outdoors - after all, he's British.


But they *can* be happy indoors and they can be happy in/out doors
too. They can be unhappy indoors and they can be unhappy in/outdoors.
He is discussing the cat/human relationship and the cat as a species
developing and adapting from being the solitary hunter to the family
pet. Whether they are indoors or in/outdoors is irrelevent in the
context of his passage.

You don't know fact from fiction so you're not likely to recognise a
true thing.
