This is BS!

As far as I am concerned she has every right to kill those cats since her neighbor refused to keep then out of her yard.

Stupid cats

Septuagenarian Cat Killer

Cops: Wisconsin woman whacked neighbor's pets with d-Con dinner

 JUNE 24-- Meet Myrtle Maly. The 78-year-old Wisconsin woman was arrested this week for poisoning her neighbor's cats after the animals came into her backyard and attacked some birds. Maly, charged with two felony animal mistreatment raps, admitted to Madison cops that she placed d-Con rodent killer into a can of cat food (the normally yummy "Special Kitty Salmon Dinner") and set the chow out for Tiger and Tangerine, neighbor Robert Yu's felines. While Maly told investigators she only intended to sicken, not kill, the cats, she did not appear devastated about their demise, according to the below criminal complaint. "When I find these little feathers, I've had it. I love animals, but he drove me to it," she told a detective. "I have a good feeling because the birds are happy now." The septuagenarian cat killer, who said she resorted to the poison after getting no help from animal control authorities, faces three years in jail if convicted in the double slaying.

I think if I was in her position, I'd do the same thing... well maybe not the same thing, and I probably wouldn't do it, but I would probably consider for a very long time doing what the old lady did (amoung many other malicious things, some animals are just evil).

And some are just cats--predators who instinctually hunt small, loveable birds. It's not like they were killing her pets!  I don't like it either! My dog has been known to chase rabbits-and I dont want her to kill them. But if she did manage to get one, it's because she's a predatory carnivore. The animals didn't deserve to die because they were doing their natural action of hunting.  Do coyotes who kill peoples pet cats/dogs deserve to die? No! They're just doing what they're supposed to do, and it so happens that we and our pets are in the way. Killing an animal for such a reason should never be justified. Dangerous animals--those who are maliciously hostile  to anything and everything should be kept away from others. But I would like to see these people try to keepnormal cats that had been outdoor cats locked inside. What that woman did was cruel and she should be punished for it.

The simple solution is to become holy, like Saint Seraphim of Sarov and then the animals even will live in peace around us!  See, problem solved.

As a someone who has a cat, I would be very upset if someone hurt or killed my cat. The woman was wrong for taking the law into her own hands and taking the lives of those cats. I'm willing to wager she had bird feeders, bird bath or a garden of some sort that attracted birds and other wildlife to her yard. Where there are birds there are stray cats. The cats were merely following thier natural instinct to hunt. If you don't want cats in your yard. 1.  TAKE DOWN THE UGLY BIRD BATH. 2. Spray your property line with a solution of hot pepper, water and canola oil or "feliaway" .

Don't even get me started on responsible pet owership.

It was her neighbors cat - not a stray. And she tried to get help from Animal Control in making the neighbor keep the cat in the house or at least out of her yard.

Do you let your cats run around the neighborhood? If you do, then you should expect consequences to that.

Consequences being that they may get hit by a car, not that your neighbor will kill it. Cats are different than dogs. No one complains about cats pooping in their yards, and there is very little danger of someone being bit by your cat. Cats generally pose no problem as outdoor animals. And it's not like you can fence in a cat.

What the person probably should have done would be to have their cats declawed. This woman is in no way justified. Hence being charged with breaking the law.

My suggestions work for random neighborhood cats too. Point being there are less cruel alternatives to getting rid of unwanted cats.

No, I do not let my cat run wild about the neighborhood. I would like to think I'm a responsible pet owner and keep my cat contained in my apartment. I do agree that this ladies neighbor was an irresponsible banana head for not securing her pets in her yard. I could rail on at length about irresponsible pet ownership.

However, the Septegenarian had NO right to take the law in her own hands and kill the cats.

It is a cat's nature to want to run around and have more territory than the inside of a small house or apartment.  Choirfriend was right about cats not hurting anyone.  People need to lighten up about sharing their space with neighborhood animals.  I have a friend who hates squirrels and has been calling the city repeatedly asking them to get rid of the squirrels in her neighborhood.  Finally, I asked her, "What do you want them to do?  Come over with guns and shoot them out of the trees?"  To my disgust, she thought that was a good idea.

Cats running around the neighborhood do more good than harm, even though we may not see it.  They were domesticated for a reason.  They're extremely efficient at hunting and killing vermin.  You'd be surprised at how many rats and mice exist in your neighborhood and how many more would exist if it were not for neighborhood cats.  I live in a neat, well trimmed, middle class suburb outside of a major city.  I have never seen a mouse or a rat.  Yet my neighbor, who has two cats, tells me that her cats come home with at least a couple of dead mice a month.  I'd rather have the cats in my yard than the mice.

I remember seeing a documentary on t.v. a while back about some researcher in England who tracked the number of mice killed by domestic house cats in a particular London neighborhood.  It turned out to be a much larger number than the researcher expected.

I have also heard that during witch hunts in the 1300's, the cat population in Europe was decimated.  The result was that the rat population exploded, and the bubonic plague had no problem killing one fourth of the human population. 

This link discusses it:   http://www.wegmans.com/news/pet/columns/102304.asp

So leave the cats alone.  They are not hurting anyone and they are doing us some good.

Choirfriend was right about cats not hurting anyone.

Not really. In many places, especially in the tropics, cats are an introduced predator that wreaks havoc on the local ecosystem and has been responsible for the extinction of many indigenous species. Even here in North America, they really are a foreign animal to our environment and have caused damage, though not nearly to the extent of places like New Zealand and Hawaii.

Placed in the proper context (in this case, common suburban human-filled, settled areas) cats are not killing off native species. We've done that already. Come on, put it in the context.

Sorry, I have to side with Beayf here.ÂÂ  Domestic animals can wreak havoc in ecosystems in which they are introduced.ÂÂ  This can apply to suburban areas as well.ÂÂ  It's much worse in rural areas.ÂÂ  

Being something of an ecologist, I would say that it is at best a gross oversimplification to say that "cats do much more good than harm" in a suburban context.  Ecosystems are highly complex things with many subtle relationships going on that may not be apparent or appear to be significant.  This even applies to some suburban ecosystems.  They're not like cars or some other appliance that just needs one thing fixed and then everything is perfectly okay.  ÃƒÆ’‚  ("Oh, look, I found the problem.  It's the fuel injection system.")

BTW, I have often heard it said that declawing cats is quite inhumane.

The End of the Raven
by Edgar Allan Poe's Cat


On a night quite unenchanting, when the rain was downward slanting,ÂÂ  
I awakened to the ranting of the man I catch mice for.ÂÂ  
Tipsy and a bit unshaven, in a tone I found quite craven,ÂÂ  
Poe was talking to a Raven perched above the chamber door.ÂÂ  
"Raven's very tasty," thought I, as I tiptoed o'er the floor,ÂÂ  
  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚ "There is nothing I like more."

Soft upon the rug I treaded, calm and careful as I headedÂÂ  
Toward his roost atop that dreaded bust of Pallas I deplore.ÂÂ  
While the bard and birdie chattered, I made sure that nothing clattered,
or snapped, or fell, or shattered, as I crossed the corridor;ÂÂ  
For his house is crammed with trinkets, curios and weird decor--ÂÂ  
  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  Bric-a-brac and junk galore.

Still the Raven never fluttered, standing stock-still as he uttered,ÂÂ  
In a voice that shrieked and sputtered, his two cents' worth--ÂÂ  
  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚ "Nevermore."

While this dirge the birdbrain kept up, oh, so silently I crept up,ÂÂ  
Then I crouched and quickly leapt up, pouncing on the feathered bore.ÂÂ  
Soon he was a heap of plumage, and a little blood and gore--ÂÂ  
  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  Only this and not much more.

"Oooo!" my pickled poet cried out, "Pussycat, it's time I dried out!ÂÂ  
Never sat I in my hideout talking to a bird before;ÂÂ  
How I've wallowed in self-pity, while my gallant, valiant kittyÂÂ  
Put an end to that damned ditty"--then I heard him start to snore,ÂÂ  
Back atop the door I clambered, eyed that statue I abhor,ÂÂ  
  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚  Jumped--and smashed it on the floor.

Same! But i will add that i can understand why people get upset at cats downloading in their new seedbeds, scratching up their gardens etc. Here in Oz cats go feral and can grow really big, a friend of mine who was a country huntin', fishin',shootin' kind of guy once caught one on his property -man it was huge more like a diminutive bobcat, its 'canine' fangs had grown down to quite some length rather like a small sabre tooth's might be. They also kill lots of native species and can kill a surprising number of creatures in one night.

But there again some our of sabre-tooth koalas have taken a number of Japanese tourists over the years - nah -now I'm kidding -lol.

To a Vase
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Cat


How do I break thee?  Let me count the ways.
I break thee if thou art at any height
My paw can reach, when, smarting from some slight,
I sulk, or have one of my crazy days,
I break thee with an accidental graze
Or twitch of tail, if I should take a fright.
I break thee out of pure and simple spite
The way I broke the jar of mayonnaise.
I break thee if I'm in a playful mood,
And then I wrestle with the shiny bits.
I break thee if I do not like my food.
And if someone thy shards together fits,
I'll break thee once again when thou art glued.

THE STORY OF CAT
NEWLY DISCOVERED MISSING CHAPTER OF GENESIS!

And Adam spake saying:, "Lord, when I wast in the garden, Thou walked with me every day. Now I do not see Thee anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much Thou lovest me."

And God spake unto him from a whirlwind saying, " I will create a companion for thee that will always rejoice to see thee and who will be a reflection of My love for thee, so that Thou will love Me even when thou canst not see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable thou may be, this new companion will accept thee as thou art, will love thee as I do, in spite of thyself."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail.

And Adam saith, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God spake unto him saying: "Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of My love for thee, its name will be a reflection of My own Name, and thou wilt call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came unto the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believeth that he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well."

And God saith, "I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased.
And Adam was greatly improved.
And Dog was happy.
And Cat couldn't care less one way or the other..
