Wow, I shoulda known that. Now I'm feline pretty stupid.

Australia has a cunning plan to control feral cats. It's likely to be as ineffective as their rabbit control.

In the U.S, we need more coyotes, wolves, and mountain lions. They might also help control feral teenagers.

Well didja ever consider that cats also have problems? Such as this?

OT/
The last female cat I owned (or who owned me, as all cat people know) brought me a dead bird as an appreciation one time.

I really wasn't in the mood to "eat crow" so I declined.

So my cat took the bird back and snuck outta the garage, with a look that said "See if I ever bring yo a bird again."

Cats never forgive or forget.

If the birds won't kiss them, the cats fire a few bullets into the birdhouse.

In other news, water is wet.

Got too many coyotes, wolves and mountain lions already ... merely sayin' ...

great reporting. i read that smoking could be dangerous. they need to do a study.

My wife and I were visiting my parents once. My father and I had to go into town for something.
My wife and mother both shared a mortal fear of birds.
Daddy's Siamese, King Tut, chose that time to come to the patio door. My nearly blind mother let him in without seeing the bird he was holding in his mouth.
The VERY LIVE BIRD.
Needless to say, it was a fine comedy production but the actors didn't enjoy their roles.
I captured and released a Robin. There were feathers everywhere.

Cats are trying to improve the bird species by killing the ones who are easy to catch. When I was a kid, some birds who built a nest on the side of the house kept dive bombing the cats. One day, one of the cats reached up and caught the bird who dive bombed her. Not the smartest birds.
