om...

Well, there you go. We're appalled by different things. I'm appalled
by people who don't bother to tag and collar their indoor pets in

the
assumption that they will never, by any combination of

circumstances,
slip out of the house.


This really is a good point. Much as I love my cats I had not thought
of this. It's as though my mind stops at the worst possible outcome,
that
they might get hit on the busy street first thing. Both have collars,
but I
will have some tags made with their names and my contact info this
weekend and attach them.

Chuckle. I know some kids who would have benefitted from this.

The big deal is cats need company and stimulation. How would you

like
to be trapped in a house all weekend with nobody to play with?!

Would
you leave a child alone all weekend so long as it was healthy and
enough food and water? I don't think so.


What about if the cat has kitty companions and someone looking
in on them twice a day?


I would say that's fine (again, only my opinion!) . Having companions,
feline, canine or otherwise, and some human intervention to check up
on them is fine - leaving a solitary cat alone in a house for 24-48
hours isn't fine. What stimulation do they have? Nothing to chase,
nothing to snuggle up with, nothing to distract them. What a boring
existance that would be :-(

If it was going to go out and shag at random with nobody to look

after
its offspring, yes.


Nazi.

*s******* ;-)

Don't want to get into a whole heavy philosophical debate, but we
construct our society and our knowledge and understanding of it. Who
knows, if Hitler had won the war it may well be perfectly normal and
natural to have vast sections of our society sterilised now, if they
weren't deemed 'fit' to produce genetically superior offspring. Scary
thought.

Hilter liked cats, I believe. And he was a vegetarian. So you can't
believe the stereotypes ;-)

Of course it's just my opinion, I don't go around removing cats from
homes that are treated in a way I find abhorrent! I find lots of
things other cat owners do quite unbearable but I have my own beliefs
and I have to live by them - and if I had to leave my cats regularly I
wouldn't have them, it's as simple as that. That's my opinion as a cat
owner and I'm entitled to express it.


OK, fair enough - and yes, you are; I just wanted to head off any
Bobbing at the pass.

In fact, I might be faced with that situation myself soon - I'm between
jobs, and I may well be in a situation where I'm away from the house 5
days a week. Obviously, should that happen, I need to find my cats
some nice new slaves... *sniffle* so I'm hoping it doesn't come to that.


:-((( I'll have them!!!

Well, and I think about, what if they swallow a string or get caught
in something and choke? I'll never forget the time Gnarly stuck her
head in one of those small tissue boxes. Yes, it was hilarious, and
as soon as my husband got a load of her stumbling around, I removed
it. If she had done this over a long weekend, she would have been
a wreck at the end of it, and dehydrated too.
