Here kitty, kitty, kitty!!!!!

    I've never liked cats. Didn't like them 30 years ago, and still don't like them today.

    I'm highly allergic to them, but aside from that, I still don't like them anyway. Dogs I love, but not cats. When you look at one, they have that look that if they were married to you, they'd leave you for someone with more money.

    I can remember how I used to like bothering them a long time ago. I used to enjoy chasing them away, but my favourite thing to do if I got a hold of one was to step on its tail and make it scream. It would bring a smile to my face. :D

    And we've all heard the stories of cats being killed and served up in those all you can eat Chinese buffets, right next to the spring rolls. Oh how I wish this was true (it's not, but a man can dream, can't he?) :rolleyes:

    And then I can remember about 15 years ago, and seeing a story in the newspaper where someone was convicted of killing 5 cats and getting 12 years in jail. Personally, I thought he should have got a medal. Now if he would have done that to dogs, then I would be in favour of shoving 50000 volts up his ass.

    But now I am on this forum, and have learned that cats have a soul too. So I am wondering if hurting cats, or hunting and fishing for trophy purposes, is something we get subjected to in the life review. I never caused a cat emotional pain, but would I have to feel the pain of stepping on its tail? And since I don't have a tail, where would I feel this pain?

    PS - while my farting thread was pretty good stuff that Roberta especially enjoyed, I felt it was time for a change of pace.

    Farts are awesome, but cats are not. Those are words of wisdom you can take to the bank.

    IN DEFENSIO FELUM:
    Let me say that I am with the cats on this one. I love all animals, but cats are my very favorites. The hardest things for me, personally, to forgive is animal abuse. Obviously, I am vehemently against any form of violence or abuse, but animals are just so pure and innocent. It's the mockingbird effect, I suppose.

    That being said, if someone makes is sadistic towards animals, and purposely causes them suffering, then I do think that they will have to, justly, come to terms with that during their life review. Whether it is actual physical pain, I am unsure. I think it would depend on the specific case. But don't fret, you can be made to feel as though you had a tail. One should remember though: animal abuse is part of the homicidal triage, so it is likely that serious abusers will also be abusing humans as well.

    Thanks for the help.

    It's been about 25 years since I stepped on a cat's tail. And I haven't been abusing humans during this time either.

    Interesting that you can be made to feel like you have a tail in the life review. Now I know what to expect.

    And I agree with you on animal abuse - I can't stand it either as I am a pet lover. Just not for cats. Never liked them from day one. I wish I could love cats, but I just can't.

    And I know lots of people who despise cats like me.

    Now what about trophy hunting? Killing deer, etc., not to eat them but to display them. I don't hunt so this doesn't apply to me, but I am curious if hunters who do this feel the pain of the bullet they put into the animal once they get to the life review.

    It all depends on the person who is doing the hunting, and how easily he can forgive himself. What makes sense to me is this: if you don't need to kill an animal to survive, then don't do it. Killing animals for trophies is not only wasteful to the environment, but it also puts the animal through unneeded trauma.

    I agree with you Andrew, killing for fun is not on.

    I've never hunted in my life, even knowing I live in an area where hunting is common in the autumn. It's never appealed to me, although I know a lot of people who do it.

    And sure they will eat what they kill, such as partridge or whatever else. But they don't really have to kill these animals for food as they could always go down to the grocery store. So while they might do it for foor in part, the main reason they do it is for sport.

    I have also never hunted in my life and I don’t like who kill animals because they also have souls. I don’t like cats and dogs but I have never thought to kill them. They also have the right to live and enjoy their life. Everyone should understand the feelings of animals.

    I guess killing cats (pulling the wings off flies), etc. is easy for some people, because unlike many humans, they can't really defend themselves, (not in a way that would stop a determined cat killer from doing it harm.)

    Bullies are much the same, especially if their "prey" is weaker, AND said bully is in the company of other bullies. Add some intoxicant, and they can really "whoop it up"!!!

    Sadism is sadism, no matter how helpless your UNDESERVING victim is!! (Protect you children!!!!)

    I know I've opened myself up to feel the wrath of certain sadists here and elsewhere---but...SO WHAT!

    To pay a price for trying to protect those who suffer the whims of a sadist is worth the risk!

    Someday, the sadist will suffer from its own sadist.

    What goes around comes around. I've been bullied. Not lately, but when I was a kid.

    As for pulling the wings off of flies, I suppose many children have done that. But I can remember a post where Carol's son said that insects don't have a soul, but that they exist just to exist. So if you pull the wings off a fly, I don't know if that gets subject to the life review (maybe it does, I don't know).

    WWE Lover... sorry.. but um... I dont know what to say about this post other then... umm??? Wow.. ... sad face. I tried to laugh but didn't happen.

    No need to apologise.

    With most poeple that I know or hang around with, they don't like cats either. And I never liked them myself. So I know a lot of people who would laugh their asses off reading a post like this. I laughed when I wrote it.

    On this forum, the people tend to be of a different nature. So I posted this expecting some backlash, and I welcome it.

    One thing you will always get from me is the truth, whether it's popular or not. No point telling lies to all of you.

    I just can't bring myself to like cats. I get lots of them around my apartment trying to kills the birds that come around here, and I hate watching it. I think they are nothing more than pests, like mosquitos. 99.99% of this forum will disagree, and I like the fact that you will post on it to speak your mind.

    By the way folks, I was at a friend's place today, and she has a cat. I didn't feel like torturing it, eating it, or stepping on its tail. So maybe I'm progressing.

    Just sayin'...

    I will never understand why so many adolescent males are so cruel to cats in particular. They are such beautiful creatures and actually can be so loving and faithful. I could not even kill some mice which got into my house last winter. I set live traps and released them. Yes, I am a hypocrite and do eat meat but as little as possible. I also release bugs. Guess I never felt executioner or torturer was part of my life plan.

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, you're less of a hypocrite than me. I eat meat, have swatted flies and mosquitos, and stepped on cat tails when I was much younger.

    Never killed an animal in life though, unless you count insects. I don't hunt, as it's never appealed to me. I know plenty of people who love to hunt for the sake of doing it. I've fished before, but never caught one (although I did catch a boot one time).

    It should be noted, Half of Us, that it is not normal for anyone to be particularly cruel to animals. In fact, it is a major part of the homicidal triage (one of the signs that someone could become a serial killer). It can also be a sign of psychosis in certain individuals. Thus, it should be regarded as a very serious symptom of mental disorder, not phase that kids go through. I have seen [not personally] this type of mistake made several times, so I figured I would warn any readers. If you know someone who is cruel to animals, it is imperative that they seek help.

    Personally, when I was an adolescent male, I had a cat whom I loved more than my own life.

    Now this is just fantastic stuff. Aren't I the worst?

    In just a couple of weeks, I've gone from having a golden heart to being indirectly implied that I want to kill/torture animals, and might even be a serial killer in the making. That's why I love it here so much. I never know what I am going to get on any given day. :eek:

    You people are a different breed than the kind of people I am used to dealing with, that's for sure. And it's all good as far as I am concerned.

    WWE = World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly the WWF). Just so you know.

    As for executions, there was a time that I was in favour of the death penalty. That was around 20 years ago. Now I am dead set against it (pardon the pun).

    WWE Lover!

    I apologise!

    I guess it just hit me wrong when I saw your anti-feline diatribes...actually it really pissed me off.

    But reading your other postings, I realise I was a bit "hasty" in my reactions, and you're not an ogre after all.

    Some issues like animal cruelty can polarise opinions for all who read about it, especially in a forum setting.

    I'd like to let bygones be bygones if you'll do the same for me.

    I like the concept of loving unconditionally and forgiving completely, and I'd like to start now.

    Chuck

    Hi all,
    Chuck! Where have you been? :)
    Anyway, Mikey says we are to repect all animals. Killing just to kill is not good. Food is one thing, the trophy is another.
    Killing an animal for our safety is looked at differently. Such as an attacking dog, etc. Heaven always knows the underlying reason. We must remember even if we don't like cats, (I personally am a dog person) they are a very loving pet to many and should be respected. To be intentionally hurtful to animals just for the fun of it is reviewed and not looked upon well. Bullying of animals and people is taken seriously in Heaven according to Mikey.
    Mikey tells me that insects are not "soul creatures" but be nice to them too! :) Within reason. Don't let them "sting" you............ :0

    Andrew, I am well aware that it is not "normal" for anyone to be cruel to animals. However, I have personally seen a lot of abuse to cats by boys in my younger days. It did teach me to stand up to bullies. And I do not think it is always a prelude to being a serial killer. Sometimes, it is just a kid trying to fit in with some macho neanderthal and may bring about quite a bit of guilt later.

    Something you have to know about me Chuck is that I have a sense of humour that most people out there are not used to. I bring a certain comedy to my discussions, which people tend to either like a lot or dislike a lot. And sometimes I rub people the wrong way. Maybe this is the fruit of my years of bitterness over having a bad life, but the truth of the matter is that I would rather be this way than mad all the time like I once was.

    No, I am not an ogre after all. But just realize that I don't like cats. It's just how I feel, man.

    I'm not in favour of torturing them, but just for arguments sake let's say I saw one get run over by a car. I wouldn't feel bad for it. But I would for just about any other animal, particularly dogs as I think dogs are the greatest thing ever invented. I like dogs a hell of a lot more than I like people.

    I tend to believe that we all have a "lack of love" failing somewhere in our lives, or at least a love issue with which we struggle. I have a few, and I have no problem voicing them on this site as I think you people are "more on the ball" than a lot of people I know.

    And I was never calling you out Chuck. So no need to let bygones be bygones since there are no bygones. I've always liked you. Hell, I like everyone here, even when they disagree with me. :D

    True that.

    But I am sure Jeffrey Dahmer started out with torturing and killing animals, so Andrew's opinion is valid as well.

    Well, I haven't stepped on a cat tail in a long, long, long time. But at least now I know what to expect in the life review. I just wonder how all those hunters up here are going to do in their life reviews.

    I swat mosquitos in the summer time. Based on your response, I guess we don't have to fear that in the life review. :)

    Thanks Carol and Mikey.

    Sorry, Half of Us. I wasn't trying to imply that you weren't aware of this fact - I was more trying to stress that point to any misguided readers who might be lurking here. We always must be careful of what we say and imply. You never know who's out there and what their mindset is.

    I'll just offer a short explanation, while we're on this subject, to alert any readers here who may people in this situation. The homicidal triad is a group of traits that indicate a person has the potential to become a killer. The three traits to watch out for are: abuse to animals, the compulsive setting of fires, and chronic bedwetting past the age of five. Note: not all serial killers have these traits, but many do. If anyone out there knows someone who fits this criteria, please try to get them some type of help, if possible. If you suspect that they are already committing illegal acts, then please go to the police.

    I'm sorry folks but if I see:

    A. A roach
    B. A spider
    C. Ants

    I am getting the raid and my shoe and I am killing the hell out of all of them. Furthermore if I see a roach in my home (thank god I haven't so far which is rare actually) BUT if I do see one I will let it go. If I see another one I will stay in a hotel room for a night or two. Not lying. Now I've never truly had to deal with roach problems but I'm tellin ya if I were to see more than 2 a month I'm finding somewhere else to live. I am TERRIFIED of roaches. Give me snakes. Give me bears. Give me rats. But NEVER EVER give me a single roach! Thank God I have a cat. They will play with bugs before they kill em.

    Now I would NEVER kill a lady bug. I always pick them up and put them outside. Killing a lady bug is like killing a harp seal. You just don't do it!

    Time to put the shoe on another foot my WWE dry humored friend. See I have just about the same humor as you do.. but not when it comes to animals (or cats in your case).

    You see I HATE dogs. I think they all smell.. I don't find them cute at all.. and they quite frankly are not as sleek and intelligent as cats are. You have to do everything for them. You have to take them outside to take a dump, you have to bathe them and still after you bathe them they stink. Where as with a cat, all you have to do is clean their litter box and fill their food bowls. I have never known a cat to smell. Not even an alley cat!

    I think you are so use to seeing short haired alley cats. I have owned 2 persian cats one of which is still alive (he just turned 1 years old recently). The cats that I choose to adopt are exotic, fluffy, and with big baby eyes and they were not the persian cats that had the smushed nose. They had normal looking faces. I think you would retract and apologize for everything you are saying here if you were to spend 1 minute with my cat. No I take that back. My cat doesn't like most strangers so 1 minute wouldn't be possible. The only stranger my cat has not ran away from was a guy that I was briefly dating. My cat actually stood there and motioned like he was about to run but then he didn't. I was like "Wowww you are the first person my cat didn't know that he has never ran away from". My cat let my date pet him and everything. Whereas my cat has ran away from my dad (good choice lol), the maintenance man, ect... I think cats have a sense for certain kinds of people. They are very intuitive. Where as a dumb dog would let just anybody touch them or play with them.

    And don't get me started on dogs hurting and killing innocent people!!!!! You would never hear about a cat killing an infant! But ohhh do a google search and you will find stories beyond stories about a dog getting into a babies crib and mutilating them. How on earth can you prefer something like that over a cat? What have cats ever done to you?

    You see I hate dogs but I would never make my own post about hating dogs. But since you went there about cats then I went there about dogs.

    WWE Lover, you get a pass this time. I know that you are a good person and that you are a very unique person but I'm tellin you I do not share the humor in this post and yes I am going to let you know! Its not so much because I'm a cat person. I'm an animal person. Even if someone were to come on here posting about stepping on puppies I still would be pissed. Yes I do have a preference for cats but I'm just saying.

    You get a hug and then a bop on the head from me! :p
