Well at least it's different from the ongoing Eves sagas that infest so many of the threads here.

Our cat....you would not know we have a cat in the house...same when we had large and I mean LARGE dogs...only when I did not vacuum daily and the sage brush size hairballs rolled across the floor ....really it is sad that you are such an unhappy person Stiff...
edit: hey Richard and Bear~! hope you are doing well and life is moving on! email when you can~

Nothing unhappy about me. I don't let animals inside my house because they don't belong inside. That's not what Mother Nature created them for. It's you people that are unhappy. Because you can't have meaningful, happy relationships with other human beings you choose to have them with animals. Sounds like you guys might work on your interpersonal relationships with other human beings and let the animals be animals. Cats should be outside hunting for mice and dogs should be outside chasing the cats. Then everyone will be happy.



A thinking person's blog about cats

Personally I think that the majority of people involved in cat hoarding are people who are:
  • Unable to cope adequately
  • Poor problem solvers therefore
    Have few friends - outsiders
  • Find comfort in animal company
  • But can't cope with caring for animals due to poor problem solving
    Lose control of the situation due to poor problem solving
  • And lack sensitivity for the suffering of the cats or animals. They have a tenderness ostensibly but are actually quite cold emotionally. This coldness may come from a lack of emotional development - arrested development could be a factor.

I think there's a difference between cat hoarders and the average human who chooses to have an animal companion or two. Stiffbrain probably knows that too; no doubt he's off his meds again and trolling for attention.

You are either an animal person or not... I have met very few people that are in between. Those that aren't just don't understand and you will never get them to.

Cats and most dogs are DOMESTICATED, meaning humans bred them and conditioned them and now they NEED us to survive. One of the reasons you are not supposed to feed the bears - they become dependent on you and since they are not domesticated, will get agressive and then will have to be put down. (This is true of most large, wild animals, btw)

I don't expect everyone to want to rent to people with animals - and most places require a larger security deposit if they do and that is understandable. Just as I can't stand cigar/cigarette smoke, some people can't stand the dander of an animal.
