...as pets of course. I don't like them, they seem lazy and pointless pets -unless you have rodents - and the only time they want to interact with you is when they are hungry or want to go outside...how about you?
I cant stand when people think its cute for their annoying dogs to jump on me or rub on me or the worst beg!! for that reason when anyone comes over I chase the cats away from them if they call the cats to them they are from then on, on their own but my bigger cat thinks its a dog and when you knock on the door or come in he has to run and greet you and meow so i keep him from doing that to the ones I know dont like cats!I hate cats. They love me and I am so allergic to them, I suffer several hours after being near one- they love to climb on me. Their owners always act like I am awful when I keep scooting them away from me. UGH

That must have been the worst job. I give you credit. It sadly needs done. I am a dog and cat lover, but I am a big fan of spaying/ neutering your pet. I hate wild cats. Not each one of them, but I shows just how irresponsible people are. I live near a StateWildlife park, and we also have a problem packs of wild dogs. And I'm not just talking about the coyotes. (we have them too) Their have been people riding their horses, and surrounded by packs of dogs growling at them. I think it's worse than coyotes because coyotes are scared of people. These dogs are not. And it's because people think a State park is a good dumping ground.Our two dogs are part of the family, though they are well trained and well behaved, everyone who visits us knows they are here, it's a case of love me, love my dogs, or bugger off! That said I dont allow them to mob guests or jump up or anything.
I realise my comments on cats will seem harsh to cat lovers, but let it not be thought I 'hate' them, It's not their fault they are bred en-mass into an oversaturated market by idiots with no respect for living things.
I dont condone cruelty to anything, and fools who shout about killing them piss me off as much as those who brag about killing lizards and snakes or pot shooting turtles.
I do appreciate them for what they are, they simply dont appeal to me for many reasons and I think they merely reflect human vanity (yes domestic dogs aswell).
The reason, imo, they do do not make suitable pets is purely due their hunting nature.
I beleive its cruelty to lock them up, even in outdoor cages, they are meant to roam, unfortunately they are not meant to roam here, nor almost anywhere else either.
Allowing them to do so in domestic environments, is equally cruel (think roadkill) not to mention highly irresponsible.
Since they dont belong and are not a creature happy in confinement by nature, they are not good domestic pet material.
Im sure they do give millions much pleasure, but they also cause millions of others untold hell and destroy wildlife wherever they go, despite captive feeding.
Having destroyed up to 20 a day for 4 years because they were unwanted, my feelings on the matter are quite strong, and for this I make no apology.
Consider the feelings of a passionate animal lover who because I beleived it was making a difference, was forced to restrain with a mesh crush cage, these cats everyday and administer a fatal shot of barbiturate directly to the heart, then have to incinerate them (not to mention up to 25 dogs of all kinds everyday aswell), all because you (general public) beleive its your god given right to breed anything indescriminately.
Ofcourse after 4 yrs I realised it was pointless adressing the result without legislation to adress the cause and this would never happen, so I quit.
When the R.S.P.C.A actually do something worthwhile, I may consider supporting them, until then my door and my wallet is closed.
I dont much like those pathetic little domestic wildlife killers that are called 'cats', no.
These arn't cats, they're lizard killing, garden shitting, dog annoying, hair shedding, furniture shredding pest that should never have been domesticated.
These are Cats!
Domestic fleabags are miserable wannabe's! That dont make good pet material in general, let alone in countries (like mine) where they were never supposed to be!
