Make great pets.
Once you've de-wormed and de-everythinged them..

i was driving home today, and I got stuck. (who'd a thunk it?)

And this black cat jumped in my car and refused to leave...
But it wasn't going about it nicely, It wanted my truck.
The nerve, carjacked by a cat.

ferals make the best pets
Fingus 12th in a long line
of my Feral companions
once they clean up and relax
their smarter, more loyal
and very territorial

O.o.. o.o... o.O... Really? I believe in relativism. Sorta like Karma but much more angry.

Do unto others as others do unto you. Last time I checked I can still have kitte- Children.

I had the vas in 77
and the cats didn't have to make me
there are enough kids that need help
that I didn't see the need to create more
just to say "their mine", I have plenty of
Kids, from 10-30, DNA doesn't make them
any less mine...

do it for DisTemper
Fixed Females live 3X's longer
with Males its 5X's

Most outdoor cats die from infections
from scratches they get fighting other
cats, once their fixed theres nothing to
fight about, except food and territory
food fights don't usually involve claws
its just a dominance thing, territory,
usually the interloper quits and goes quickly

Will., also consider that females in heat spray everywhere. And there's no getting the stench of cat piss out.

Spayed female cats live longer
because they are no longer
fighting off males
cats don't have consensual sex
they male has to run them down
beat them down and hold them down

Neutered males Don't fight
except for territory,
less fights, less chance of scratches
less chance of infection
longer life

I do live in a... "shitshack" in the middle of nowhere.... Wonder if it'd ever mate with a bobcat....:D But I'll think about it.

I think overpopulation is one of the hugest probs facing mankind today. People, pets...more mouths equal more hunger, more resources needed, more health probs. Think about the Catholics, you'll be calling a vet pronto.

But anyway, they'd do anything for food, love, shelter, the occasional bug salad. Kiki is like my dream come true. Don't let your cat become a runaway nightmare.

Well Robbie's keeping his nuts. He's never let off the leash and my garden's terrier proof - so no problem with him going forth and multiplying.

I suppose it's different with cats - you can't stop them from wandering.

even so called Indoor cats
get out, when the mood
and opportunity permit
its an exercise in futility
they come and go as they please
your lucky if your wishes coincide
with theirs twice a day

It all depends on the individual pet, the surroundings & circumstances from birth on. Certain breeds of cats or dogs are easier to manage & train, therefore you can try to keep one home bound first and see if it sticks. Babs cat, Dude, is indoors. Declawed, fixed...doesn't seem to mind, given its a zillion degrees outside & the air-conditioner is where his fur feels the best.

Kiki, however is no lapcat princess. She was supposed to stay inside, but I tagged her up, plied her with people tuna & the big recliner. Now I just trust her to return if she pleases to. Mice, lizards & cricket hunting are a fancy with Ki. She's recently taken to lounging on my shiatsu mat at home, and chasing june bugs near the pool.

She's whines & complains if the screen is closed, so she can't get back inside with her prey immediately. Spoiled kitten!

You people took the fun out of this cat, I wanted it because it was mean-ish.

Gave it some "Cat-ittude."

believe me
fixing it will not change that
Fingus was fixed at 5 mos
she's 11 now
and she's probably the most aggressive cat
you'll ever see

I am a wander, a proprietor of peace, and perpetual purposelessness, pulsating through planes of time and space.

Alright.... I wanted a bobcat baby....hosers. :(

they actually have cross breeds out here,
not "real" bobcats, but big suckers and mean,
there's some regulation on what percentage of them
is domesticated before you can keep one as a pet or sell them
and they are damned expensive, my old roommate almost got one
this lady said she couldn't keep it, did he want it, he said sure,
she said great, $4000, he said no

Manx are cool,
but there are a
couple of others
theres an ocelot cross
(expensive)
a bobcat cross
a puma downbred
(still need a license to own over 30lbs)
theres one (I'm to lazy to lookup) they
sell in a catalogue (with galactigags etc)

Well, I've seen a 25lb manx, show a pitbull who's boss. So...

30lbs muscle cat? it would drag moose off into the bushes.

Hell, 90lb cheetah's drag, 200lb antelope into trees.

I'm sure you're right. Sadly for the domestic feline, the dowggies are bigger.

And with respect, I doubt fingus could make a 65lb dog cry and run. Fatso's down to 30lb (just over) and he'd kick cat ass!

I'd have to agree with this, I've got a rather large Siberian. 95lbs (huge I know) Not fat though. just extremely tall.
Only thing that makes him quiver is the siamese.
