I I try not to post with just a pic, but damn! This is funny:


Reminds me of the cat and dog diary entries that went around a few years ago.

Pretty sure everyone can appreciate this for a laugh!

Where is the part about the 10k scratches to your face and arms when the cats senses you're going for a toilet dump?  Grin

Pro tip: That's why you wrap them in a towel first. LOL!

Anyone ever read this?

Day 983 of My Captivity

    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. Bastards!

    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

    I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

I love cats, had like at least 10 of them so far, but i think i won't have anymore, since they all go away/die/get killed on the road. I admire how somethimes they seem to be "smart" in some actions. Well, we still have a dog, and it's the best dog you could imagine Smiley

no

my cat eats snakes
literally

I caught her eating a snake like 2-3 times

my backyard is snake free

say that's not useful Cheesy
Damn ... where do you live that you've got snakes on backyard :]

I told many times that I feel lucky that I live in a country where a biggest spider lives in a zoo Cheesy and there is only 1 kind of a snake that has poison Smiley and it will don't kill you even if it bites Smiley

Cats are cool 
Snakes + backyard = not cool

Cats are cute to pet and watch how they walk around and play. Everything doesn't have to be "useful" you fucking aspies.

Cats are useful because they are a constant reminder of how not in control people are  Cheesy
Cats will love/use you when they want and then completely ignore you when they're bored.
They will eat your food and sleep comfortably in your house but they never really belong to you. They're too cool for you  Grin
I like cats  Smiley

They also can be used as a hacking tool for wireless devices.

Gene Bransfield's Warkitteh on his cat Coco

Forget Trojan horses -- it's the cats you have to worry about. Security engineer Gene Bransfield has developed WarKitteh, a tech-laden collar that turns feline companions into scouts for WiFi hackers. The innocuous-looking accessory hides a Spark Core board that maps wireless networks and their vulnerabilities wherever the pet wanders. If used in the field, the technology would be pretty sneaky; the cat stalking mice in your backyard could represent the prelude to an attack on your wireless router.

Thankfully, Bransfield doesn't plan to weaponize the Siamese next door any time soon. WarKitteh was developed on a lark, and it isn't getting much more exposure than a panel at the Defcon hacking conference. However, the experiment in pet-based network penetration also serves as a friendly reminder to lock down your home's WiFi access point. The engineer discovered that many of his neighbors were either using weak security, or none at all -- it wouldn't have taken much for someone with more sinister intentions to either "borrow" those connections or spy on their users.

Yes cats are amazing at getting rid of rodents.  Warning, street cats will leave a beheaded mouse on the floor and you might pick it up thinking it is a piece of porkchop.

I'm a better housekeeper than to let pieces of my pork chop lie around on the floor until they get fuzz on 'em.

And it's not cruel, people castrate animals all the time (with dogs it's even recommended) and you say cutting the nails is cruel?

If you look around for it, you can find where, right in the United States, even, people castrate other people!

I think claw removal/clipping is really cruel. You basically rob a cat of its ability to climb, hunt, defend itself, etc. You know, stuff cats do.

If you want a cat but don't want your furniture destroyed, there are other options like getting a scratching post, not allowing your cat to go indoors or in certain rooms, or simply not getting a cat at all.

+1

Declawing will make me label you as an asshole, they actually need claws to do stuff, what happens if you die or they have to survive on their own for awhile? You've just made it extremely difficult for them to get any food, the reason they scratch is because they're doing the equivalent of clipping nails so they don't get too long, you could either get a scratching post for them to use or if it really bothers you that much don't get a cat at all.

Yeah if you've got furniture you don't want it near you could just keep it in an area where the scratching won't have any affect and just let it go outside to do that, as for the shitbox, my cats are awesome and go outside to take a dump, then they bury it themselves without any input from me whatsoever Wink

Just wondering what kind of "*hole" you are going to label those who use cats for target practice.

Cats are pretty shit. They don't do anything.

Dog's eat their shit then lick your face. Grin

Cats lick their xxx, then spread it out all over their hair, then rub up against you. So soft.

The only reason I can leave the door on my balcony open is the cats will eat all the flies with in 12 hours.  The one will spend the rest of the day hunting them lol.

Spiders.. well the damn things just toy with them and never kill them.

i would never own a housecat though just because i think they are discusting and they really cant jump up on counters and such after they scoop poop around in their litterbox . they are not clean animals./ i like dogs. a lab preferably

Almost +1.

Keep ALL dogs and cats outside, or at best, only in their own room which is blocked off from the rest of the house.

I don't believe in the idea of keeping animals in a house.

Humans are animals.

Wrong! Lately researchers have found that humans have a section of brain that animals don't have. It allows reasoning in great quantity and quality. Most (all?) animals seem to have a slight amount of ability to reason. But people use it all day long, every day, in a big way. Animals can't do this.

While I don't have a site reference for this, this newly discovered part of the brain might also be the part that connects us to higher consciousness. Besides this, there are some TED talks that are finding things along these same lines.
