    Default Cats kill

    I think most people on this forum knew about this. Glad they did a study to prove it.

    I had a big old tom cat who had a fresh kill everyday. One if his favorite snacks were king snskes. Where he found them I'll never know, never saw one around the house and haven't seen on since he passed.

    Several years ago, Wisconsin tried to pass a law to allow for the shooting of feral cats. They held public meetings on it, and the places were packed with old cat ladies, and the change in law to allow shooting them never passed, despite much similar data being provided about how Fluffy is a killing machine.

    Not too many of the guys I know carry a little bag of kitty treats or a yarn ball toy in their pockets with them when they're out hunting, if you know what I mean.

    Yes cats are excellent predators. That is why I keep several around and well fed at all times. They are an absolutely needed here to keep the mice and other critters under control.

    Away from the buildings. The only good cat is a dead cat.

    My cats are all Toms and I use a green cheerio on their balls. I have banded many cats for folks. They stay right here by the buildings. Any cat found out in the wild well I'm hunting, is pushing up daisy's.

    The worst cat on birds is the female with a litter to feed.

    AMEN! all our cats are fixed. Nothing worse then some farmer who just lets them breed, litters of cats under everything. My neighbor is like that. He left another neighbor watch the place well they went to Indiana. He shot over 30 cats well they were gone. No wonder we have no rabbits left around here.
