When I started to read this article , I totally thought it was going in another direction . Imagine my disappointment ;))))
I would guess that was the author's intent, Bluto.
Another exciting night in Milan.
One cool cat, now he is locked up, maybe?
Just one of the many feral cats runnin around Sandusky. They are dangerous. Do not try and interfere. Bad things WILL happen!
This was Milan not Sandusky JUSTSAYIN....anyway blame "humans" not the homeless "animals" for their "running around"
You can thank your local outdoor-cat-feeders for things like this.
Stray-Cat Feeders TRAIN Feral Cats To Attack Humans
These cat-lovers always like to claim that feral cats run away from humans, and therefore aren't the cause of all the thousands of new rabies cases.
Google for: feral cat attack rabies
Don't be surprised at the numbers of search-hits you get, nor the thousands of horrendous stories that go with them. The numbers of rabies cases or required rabies shots caused by feral cats have been exponentially growing as fast as the cats breed.
These cat-feeders are TRAINING these disease-infested cats to approach humans for food. And what happens when that child (or foolish adult) doesn't have food and reaches down to "pet the cute kitty" or pick it up to try to take it home? The cat lashes out and bites or scratches the hand that has no food for them. That means MANDATORY $1000+ painful rabies shots for the child (or any adult that is just as ignorant and naive). Paid for out of their OWN pockets -- because NOT ONE of these cat-feeders carries even ONE PENNY of liability insurance for the DEADLY danger they bring to their communities. Rabid cats and kittens are even being adopted direct from shelters after being illegally wild-harvested by cat-lover con-artists without the LEGALLY REQUIRED SIX-MONTH QUARANTINE. (Google for: rabid kitten adopted wake county -- if you don't believe it, for just one story of hundreds.)
These are just the diseases that cats have been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Campylobacter Infection, Cat Scratch Disease, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Plague, Rabies, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasma. [Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] Sarcosporidiosis, Flea-borne Typhus, Tularemia, and Rat-Bite Fever can now also be added to that list.
The ONLY difference between rats and cats these days is that people who own and love pet-rats aren't severely mentally unbalanced and trying to hoard feral-rat populations on other people's public and private properties -- while also relentlessly petitioning all their lawmakers to do so.
Pet-rat owners, and all other types of pet owners, at least have THEIR sh** together.
Wow....cat feeders? You are clueless. I have never seen a truly "feral" cat go up to ANYONE. They will run from EVERYONE. The cats people feed are NOT feral....They are cats some worthless HUMAN threw out like trash. As sad as it is~ Feral cats have had NO human contact in any way shape or form. You sound like one of the "dreaded cat killers". Go copy and paste your Google information somewhere else and quit spreading lies about "cat feeders". Not everyone is a ruthless killer like yourself. Thank GOD there are more people out there that care than you might think.............HATER.
Oh LOOK! You don't even need to have an unlocked pet-door to have a rabid cat enter your home and attack you and your family...
Now they're coming right through your ceilings!
People who don't shoot and bury every last unknown cat on their property are morons and idiots. Those that feed these cats, training them to attack humans, and defend these cats being there are the even greater criminally-irresponsible sociopathic morons and idiots!
Also, You must be looking for ways to make yourself feel better about your evil soul.
Gee~I believe I know exactly who you are. I hope to GOD there aren't TWO morons out there. TRAINING THEM TO ATTACK HUMANS~LOL~You are sure showing your ignorance once again. LOL
Picking on the kitties.....LOL
You'll pay for each and every one you kill...one way or another at some point.
I had been battling a cat-infestation on my lands for 15-20 years. No amount of trying to reason with, befriend, educate, eventually argue with or even warn the cat-lovers by me made one bit of difference. Even the sheriff couldn't reason with them. Even after he told them all that I had every legal right in the world to shoot every last one of their free-roaming cats. So on advice of the sheriff the shooting started and didn't stop until every last one of HUNDREDS of their cats were shot dead and buried.
I haven't seen even ONE cat for over 3 years now! Contrary to cat-lickers' oft-spewed "vacuum effect" myth and lie. Simple reason being: cats attract cats (the origin of cat-lickers' mythical "vacuum effect"). Get rid of every last cat in your area and there's none there to attract more. Should even ONE step paw on your land ever again? Shoot on sight A.S.A.P. or you'll be up to your a** in cats again in no time. Back to square-one with them destroying all your wildlife, spreading their deadly diseases again -- and worse -- attracting more psychotic cat-lovers and more cat-dumpers.
My wildlife is recovering nicely from the devastation and annihilation caused by their cats all those years. Owls finally returned, fox returned, spring-peepers signal spring again, grouse drum in the spring again, hawks soar over my trees again, ... I'd say, on average, that I see one new native species per day for the last 3 years for all the amazing wildlife that is repopulating my woods and lands since my lands are clean of all these invasive-species vermin cats.
The nice part about the laws in the USA, it doesn't matter how a cat gets onto your own property from criminally-negligent, disrespectful, and insanely irresponsible cat-lovers. Once that cat is there you have every right to deal with that cat in any manner that you see fit.
I found a way to turn my home and lands into a 100% fatal cat-trap which I now share with everyone who has been plagued by moron cat-lovers who are trying to hijack your homes, lands, and lives with their vermin cats. I had already had an IR wildlife surveillance system in place, so I put it to better use. Using IR surveillance cameras and baiting trails of fish-oils along all the roadsides to a cat-feeding dish within range of my laser-sighted rifle. This can totally clean-out ANY stray cats for miles around. VERY EFFECTIVE if you have idiot cat-licking problem-neighbors by you.
You can now get VERY NICE IR surveillance cameras on ebay for only $15 [search ebay with the string: "CCTV (IR, infra-red)" (do not include the quotes) -- the 48 IR LED ones are best], and $15 rifle laser-sights as well. For only a $30 investment and the drained oils from tuna or sardine tins, or a bottle of fish-oil-fertilizer from your garden center, to drizzle trails on all your roadsides; you can get rid of EVERY LAST ONE OF THEIR CATS in only a couple seasons!
Further Help: These cats are skittish as all get out. Illuminate your yard with red-floods dimmed low on dimmers (they also put out tons of IR illumination). Once you spot one of their vermin cRats on your surveillance monitor, turn off all your indoor lights, and then SLOWLY, VERY SLOWLY, open the door so as not to scare them out of your yard. The dimmed-low outdoor floods also helping to shield your presence from their view and provide enough light to help aim by. Use the laser-sight to aim for a precision chest-shot. They die in under 3 seconds, often less than 1 second, not even enough time to make a sound. This is FAR FAR FAR more humane than the days of terror and torment that even TNR (trap, neuter, release) advocates put their cats through. And then of course, their blinders-on slow INHUMANE "death by attrition" that they spew and embrace. Contrary to popular opinion, do not use a head-shot. I tried that once, it took much longer for it to die. I now suspect that cats survive more by their reptilian brain-stem than any unused gray-matter that might be above it (just like cat-lovers do). And is probably the origin of the 9-lives myth.
(BeHappy, now aren't you glad you gave me a reason to share more valuable information? Are you still happy? I AM! :-) )
You are not even worth my time. You are just one very angry, hateful "human" and you will pay for all of your killings. I'm glad you are so happy because in the end~~you will not be a very happy soul. Go on with your killings if that is what makes you feel like a man because there is a very special place for people like you for harming GODS creatures who have souls just like you and I. Let me guess~ your next response will be~~I don't believe in GOD. I am now finished with you~~you are a very sick, sick individual with whom I have NO use for. Be Happy!
But you paying others to murder innocent animals for you to shove those dead animals into your cans and bags of dried cat-food -- in your mind, that's a perfectly acceptable reason to kill other animals? (Cats are a particular kind of carnivore. If they don't ingest animal-flesh they go irreversibly blind.)
Then of course, all those valuable native animals that your free-roaming invasive-species cats skin-alive and disembowel alive for their hourly play-toys. Leaving those animals to rot once all the "fun" has drained out of them. That too is okay with you? Why don't you just go to pet-stores and buy canaries and hamsters to throw them at your cats so they can rip them to shreds while alive for their and your entertainment. Is the ONLY reason that you don't do this is because it's far more expensive than using our valuable native wildlife for this animal-cruelty purpose of yours?
Do you know what happens to a dog that is allowed to harm other animals out of hunting season or at any time when not under the direct supervision of the owner? That dog is destroyed and the owner is fined and convicted under animal-cruelty laws.
You're "done" alright.
HUH?? LOL.....Whhhhoooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaa LOL
Now I'm done....you're weird.
I thought it was okay for animals to kill other animals? Isn't that called "nature"? NATURE ADVOCATE?
Then that means that it's perfectly okay for the hunter/gatherer human to kill other animals -- like cats! That too is called "nature". So what's your problem?
Thanks for agreeing with me!
Pay humans to kill more animals for you, to shove their dead bodies into those bags and cans of cat-food for you.
When you can get more than a bible-home-schooling and learn the difference between what is meant by native species and man-made genetically engineered domesticated species, and why invasive species are destroyed on site; then you'll understand why dogs that are destroying wildlife are destroyed, and why cats destroying wildlife are destroyed; and why even free-roaming goats, cattle, and all other domesticated species are destroyed when found away from supervised confinement.
But then, this would require more than your bible-home-schooling. We shall not hold our breaths waiting for you to rise above that self-inflicted bliss-of-ignorance limitation of yours -- we'll just kill every last free-roaming cat of yours that we find until you finally figure out what it is that you've been doing wrong all during your sorry, ignorant, useless, and pathetic life. That's far far faster and far far simpler than waiting for you to ever get a clue.
I did the humane trap thing ten years ago. I didn't take them to a shelter. I took them to the pound. They were tearing up my trash and scratching the paint on my cars. I caught close to 40 in two months. Most without collars and some with. Haven't had a cat problem since. None were licensed or had any tags that would show they had shots. I like kitters. Mine stay in the house.
Can't like them too much....."Humans" caused this problem not the cats.
I like them enough to keep mine in the house where they belong.
Kitters are a natural way to keep bug and mice problems away from your home. I used to live close to a grainary once where we had problems with both. Kitter took care care of that. Not the friendliest animal on the planet, but worth it's weight in gold if kept indoors. Feed it, keep the litterbox clean and pet it when it wants you to. Low maintenance.
Not true. Rodents are low on the list of all the hundreds of native species that invasive species cats destroy. And in fact, cats only attract more rodents (see below). The only thing that happens with cats around is that you reach a happy predator/prey balance of nothing but rodents and cats in the end. No other species of any other kind left.
Here's an excerpt from my more informative and lengthy post on all the deadly zoonotic diseases that cats spread today. Pay attention to what their Toxoplasma gondii parasite causes rodents to do:
Cats' most insidious disease of all, their Toxoplasma gondii parasite they spread through their excrement into all other animals. This is how humans get it in their dinner-meats, cats roaming around stockyards and farms. This is why cats are routinely destroyed around gestating livestock or important wildlife by shooting or drowning them. So those animals won't suffer from the same things that can happen to the unborn fetus of any pregnant woman. (Miscarriages, still-births, hydrocephaly, and microcephaly.) It can make you blind or even kill you at any time during your life once you've been infected. It becomes a permanent lifetime parasite in your mind, killing you when your immune system becomes compromised by disease or chemo and immunosuppressive therapies. It can last over a year in any soils or waters and not even washing your hands or garden vegetables in bleach will destroy the oocysts. Contrary to cat-lovers' self-deceptive myths, a cat can become reinfected many times during its life and spread millions of oocysts each time. It's now linked to the cause of autism, schizophrenia, and brain cancers. This parasite is also killing off rare and endangered marine-mammals along all coastlines from cats' T. gondii oocysts in run-off from the land, the oocysts surviving even in saltwater. Its strange life cycle is meant to infect rodents. Any rodents infected with it lose their fear of cats and are attracted to cat urine.
Cats attract rodents to your home with their whole slew of diseases. If you want rodents in your home keep cats outside of it to attract diseased rodents to your area. I experienced this phenomenon (as have many others), and all rodent problems disappeared after I shot and buried every last cat on my land.
The time has come to destroy them all whenever spotted away from supervised confinement. There's no other solution. We have nobody but cat-lovers to thank for this health and ecological disaster. Stray-cats, the very source of all feral-cats, need to be euthanized too or you'll never be rid of the feral-cat problem.
Psycho>>>>>>just hates cats and believes whatever it is he is reading from LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
If he were speaking the truth EVERYONE who owns a cat would be full of horrible diseases and dying. Had cats all my life>>>no diseases.
Strays here that HUMANS DUMPED and got them all altered and guess what>>>>> no "feral" kitties! No disease throughout the neighborhood. LOL
I think someone is lacking some manhood somewhere.
You claim that you're not "full of horrible diseases"? Your posts claim otherwise.
You only prove again what I've suspected all along ... the Toxoplasma gondii parasites in cat-lovers brains won't let them think nor reason beyond wanting to ensure the proliferation of more T. gondii parasites throughout the whole food-chain and into more humans, by spreading their genetically-engineered, MAN-MADE, nature-destroying, INVASIVE-SPECIES cats even further. They are being controlled against all common-sense and reason by the cats' parasites that have taken over their minds.
Get tested for T. gondii if you are defending these invasive-species cats' lives. You're most likely obeying cats' parasites in your brain now. You can no longer think nor reason like a human anymore, ignoring all logic and common-sense. Your thoughts demoted to that of parasitic protozoan awareness, where only its base biochemical survival matters, without concern nor regard for anything else in its environment. (Sounds just like every cat-lover, doesn't it.)
There is now evidence that human minds infected with cats' Toxoplasma gondii parasite are hijacked the same way that rodents' brains are hijacked. They are actually ATTRACTED to cat urine. People similarly infected with this brain-hijacking parasite have a difficult time smelling the cat-urine stench they've made all their neighbors smell. There's are valid reason now for the "crazy cat lady" syndrome. Their brains are infested with cats' parasites. And, unfortunately, there IS NO WAY TO DESTROY IT once it is in your brain. It forms permanent cysts in your mind that control your emotions and thinking for the rest of your life. Another "fun" fact, women infected with this cats' brain-hijacking parasite are more prone to commit the most heinous acts of suicide. Google is your friend.
The studies of how this cats' brain-parasite is hijacking human minds is all over the net. The latest interesting study is that they found that Chanel #5 perfume's success might be due to men who have this cats' parasite in their mind (the male population of France having a high rate of T. gondii infection). Humans that get their brain hijacked by this parasite are attracted to the scent of cat urine, just like what happens to rodents that become infected by this cats' parasite. Cat pheromones were put into Chanel #5 perfume. It triggers attraction in men infected with Toxoplasma gondii parasites in their mind. Interesting stuff.
For just a few of the links on studies of how this cats'-parasite hijacks the human (or any animal's) mind:

"Crazy Cat Love: Caused By Parasitic Infection?"
"Research Links Parasite In Cats To Mental Illnesses"www.npr.org/templates/story/stor...
But "Crazy Cat-Lady" cat-hoarders don't just hoard them in their own homes anymore. Now they have the cover-story of TNR (trap, neuter, release) practices and programs to continue their mentally-ill cat-hoarding behavior on public and private lands with even less responsibility for the well-being of their cats than they ever had before. TNR = Win-win all around for the Crazy Cat-Lady Cat-Hoarder.
I think your FAT has warped YOU mind LOL
Just because someone printed it doesn't mean it's the gospel.
Strange articles~strange authors.
I think you've stepped off the planet, Nature Advocate. JMHO. I don't agree with you or BEHAPPY, (you both are on the opposite EXTREME) but I know we have a cat problem. Keep them in the house or don't have one. Have the ones you do want to keep, spayed and neutered, just in case.
Educate your sorry self. Everything I posted is fact.
YOUR facts along with some other strange being that believed it and printed it.
