Also, someone mentioned nature. Animals don't kill other animals unless it is NECESSARY for their own survival. A tiger would never kill a monkey because its grass was getting mussed up. There is a difference between survival and Cruella de Ville making her dalmatian fur coat.
Humans don't need to eat meet. It is not necessary for our survival. We eat meat because we enjoy the taste.

You are right - and the majority of people that spent a day at a slaughterhouse would probably not eat meat again.

Was there a point that you were making? You were attempting to call me a hypocrite because I eat meat but don't kill cats that merely inconvenience me?

to keep animals out, I have had great luck with dried hot cayenne pepper powder. You can buy a large container at sams/costco.. just sprinkle it around your yard where you don't want animals...they wont come near it. This is a very effective for dogs and possums. I have seen dogs pull their owners away when they came by. I had this neighbor in my old neighborhood that i think "encouraged" his dog to take a wizz and crap on my lawn... after the pepper treatment it wizzed/crapped on his lawn
