    Here's my baby, Luna :3


    Right, it's abit late now, but these are not toys, I always wanted a gray African parrot, but I don't believe in having animals as pets, no matter how noble your intentions maybe, it just sets and awful precedent. The more folks refusing to buy these animals from pet stores the better, because then there will not be a financial incentive for them to sell them.

    By that logical all animals shouldn't be kept as pets, even dogs and cats can survive in the wild.


    Exactly, no ANIMALS should be kept as pets. You finally get it! It's pretty unlikely most domesticated dogs and cats could survive in the wild, but am all for giving them a try. No animal pets for humans period. The only exceptions should be for research and food consumption.

    Are you trolling KT? Domestic cats and dogs have evolved to be conpanions of humans. It would be cruel to kick them out of the human environment now seeing as that is what they have evloved to be over many thousands of years.

    That's why I said most will die, but we can try set them free slowly, slowly get them back into the habitat. Honestly, anyone who keeps pets, only keeps them for their own pleasure, its not like they're doing it for the benefit of the animal. Seriously, adopt a homeless child not an animal, leave the animals alone. You can't understand how I feel about this. I can't keep talking about this, because I'll just get pissed off, and I'll have the admins on my back.

    Not really, many people adopt pets because they want to help them. In pretty much all Western countries dogs that are found roaming the streets are captured and put in the pound, if they dopn't find a home for them within a few days they are killed.

    There are people that dedicate themselves to helping save stray dogs and finding homes for them, they fill their homes with 10-20 dogs and keep them there until they can find a permanent home for them. They spent a considerable ammount of their income on their healthcare. The alternative is to just let them go whereby they will be inevitably captured by the pound and then killed.

    So Mrs. Pepe is against dogs but alright with snakes. ??

    I'm pretty sure there is a hadith or verse that talks about lizards and snakes being unclean as well

    Exactly. Snakes stay in one area so they are ok I guess. There are some anti snake Hadith out there. All superstitious crap as usual.

    You do realise that with views like yours, it's probably far more humane to just euthanise them all rather than kicking them out in an environment they simply are not suited for? Oh and people who adopt pets wont be looking to adopt a child as an alternative. The two are not like-for-like.

    I understand your views partially. I am against forcing animals to become indoor animals against their will. I particularly hate full-time caged pets. I hate pet stores too, they can be inhumane. But you really need to think those views through properly as you would simply cause an even bigger problem. Domesticated animals cannot simply learn to survive in the wild. Those skills have long been weened out of them in favour of more agreeable traits.

    This isn't even considering the danger to the environment. If domesticated cats were to survive on their own peril, do you realise the impact that would have on the bird population and anything else they eat? Same with dogs. You'd probably wipe a ton of species. We'll also have dogs and cats running rampant in the streets, rummaging through bins, shitting everywhere. Dogs tend to hang out in packs thus making them a potential danger. And people will feed them, so they will continue to rely on us and hang around us anyway (there are plenty of countries where this is the case).

    Not sure why you have an issue if animals are content living with us. Don't see why it should be an issue if a species evolved to live with a different species. It can be a mutually beneficial relationship.

    Out of curiosity where do you store all those dead rats.

    Do you have like a separate freezer for them?  Because I'm pretty sure they will start to stink if they are stored in a cabinet or something....

    Adorable kitties, Jila!!  001_wub 001_wub

    These are mine (or rather, the ones who own me)

    Munkah, the prince of hearts








    Here is Munkah with Kittenz:






    Kittenz by herself






    Chloe, the crazy but sweet one







    This is Nabi, who passed away peacefully in her sleep last March at age 16. <3 <3





    And this is Vashta, the latest addition to our family, with Munkah first



    Vashta is such a sweetheart too.





    Kittenz, Vashta and Chloe are all rescued cats we found when they were kittens. Munkah we got from a shelter when he was very young. Nabi we had adopted from another couple when she was already 5 years old.

    "Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused."

    @ All cat owners.


    Just remember to put a collar with a noisy bell on your cats if you let them outside.


    They keep killing birds which significantly reduces their population so the bell thingy will help.

    I'd get a dog instead of a cat any day of the week.     


    I plan on getting a lab once I get my own place.  I really want a rottweiler but that's not a good dog for first time owners.

    Allat,

    Aren't Cats territorial? We had a Cat a long time ago and she would be furious if we brought another kitten into the house. How do your cats deal with you adopting a new cat?

    It is better to remain quiet and have people think that you are an idiot than open your mouth and remove all doubt.
  • Post your pets...
     Reply #264 - February 26, 2013, 08:00 AM

    If a cat grew up in a multi-cat household, then it may be more accepting of other cats. If your cat is still young, that can also help. Some cats are naturally more accepting too (one of mine was really happy when the other cat had kittens, he even helped mother them).

    If your cat is very territorial, then there are methods you can use in introducing a new cat to the house. However, some cats never get used to it and are never the same cat again (happened to someone I know). Safest bet is to get multiple cats when still young, they don't mind it then.

    This was a long time ago. My cat died of old age in 2003. But she had a happy life. Anyway, Thanks for your advice. If I ever adopt cats in the future I will do as you said.
