Here kitty, kitty, kitty!!!!!

Discussion in 'General Afterlife Discussions' started by WWE LOVER, May 11, 2012.

  1. Thanks for the love. At least a bop on the head is human contact, which is the most I've had in a while.

    Dogs are quite intelligent, and they also have a sense for what people can be like too.

    My parents own a bichon, and she never smells bad. And I've seen plenty of cats, home-owned, who stink. Like Kurt Angle says, "Oh it's true. It's damn true!"
  2. By the way poeticblue, has anyone ever told you that you are beautiful when you're angry?

    Oy! Other than religion and politics, the worst and most pointless arguments of all are dogs vs. cats! Put me down as a horse-lover, dear friends. Then let's please change the subject ;-)! (On second thought, maybe religion or politics are not so bad...?)
  4. Yeah, I got a habit of getting people all riled up. Like I said before, aren't I just the worst?

    But take heart Roberta - at least you weren't made out to be the next Jeffrey Dahmer.
  5. When I was a kid,I trapped a bunch of flies in a jar once. I didn't think it was cruel at the time but I know now that it was. I hate to cop-out and say I wasn't aware, but I was much more selfish then and didn't have as much empathy as I do now. As for cats, I grew up with them all my life as well as a dog. In 2007 I found out I was deathly allergic to cats(I'd been having asthma attacks and went to an allergist). We had one cat left of two we adopted around the same time. The cat was not necessarily the entire cause of my asthma though-there were many other factors. In 2009, we had her put to sleep because her health had gotten very poor and she was suffering. She had had a long life-she was 17 in human years. As for killing mice, I have put them outside but I lived in the country for awhile and mice are plentiful there and we had to set traps because we had a pecan orchard and it brought mice out and they love nuts! I have kids and sometimes you have to make a choice. As for spiders I will kill them. One time a spider bit my mom on her forehead and she has a huge scar from it. I do know people that hunt but they eat the meat get from the animal. Slaughterhouses, in my opinion, are just as cruel if not more. Killing for sport I do not agree with. I try to eat very little red meat but haven't been able to resist all meat. I do not enjoy killing insects or mice but sometimes you have to for safety reasons.If I have a life review upon my death, and if I have caused suffering for human or insect or animal, I will have deep remorse and will hate to know I caused it pain. To be honest, there are some animals I've had that I like a lot more than some people I've known.

    Yup - nothing will get people riled up like the old cats vs. dogs debate. I'll say that I love both equally - which is true.
  7. Forget about the debate. Let's just book them in a match at next year's Wrestlemania.
  8. I love lady bugs! I love it when one gets on my arm , it tickles! And they fly too which is cool. We could have a million ladybugs and I wouldn't mind. Harmless bugs like that I leave alone.

    I've seen those swarms of lady bugs on a window at the school I went to a long time ago.. and although it was very disturbing I still hope to God the exterminator did not come by and kill them all away... they are one of the most innocent creatures.. even the poisonous ones. Just take a peice of paper and guide em on through the door lol.

    I hope we have provided some Jerry Springer comic relief for the day.. Afterlife style of course :)
  11. Yup.

    Lets get married. Would be my second time!

    If you can't tolerate a cat then its a deal breaker lol ... for real I'm not joking. :)

    And if you can't tolerate a cat then how on earth would be able to tolerate me? I'm a lion rawrrrr!!!:eek:
  13. I don't have that much of a problem with lions. Just cats.

    I guess that would be a deal breaker, just like in Jerry Springer's show Baggage.

    Nobody beats The Undertaker. Well, not at Wrestlemania anyway.

    Cats have souls. They are all unique. My cats are extremely loving, loyal, and affectionate. Since my husband passed, they have been my lifeline. They are my reason for going to work, for putting one foot in front of the other. Deliberately harming a being like them would require atonement and accountability, I'm certain. They are no different than you or I.

    I don't agree with the points you've made but I DO understand why your pets are providing your lifeline.

    This thread is over 5 years old now though and a conversation on this subject might be better in a new thread, with a different context.

    Folks can post where they want to MAC so long as they are respectful. Why feel the need to point out other people's timelines on this forum? It is not that serious.

    Thanks for sharing JC. Keep posting.

    Why feel there's a need to question my approach?

    Of course folk can post what they like where they like but an inexperienced, new member may not have realised just how old this thread is. If they did and prefer to keep writing in one that's been inactive for five years, then it's their choice.

    If they don't agree with my suggestion that a new conversation in a new thread might be better (as I said) then it's up to the member concerned. I agree it's not that serious - it's not serious at all. It was just my observation.

    Between you and me, I love seeing these old threads resurrected! I love knowing that people are reading so far back, and enjoy seeing these old contributors' names again.

    And JCinTX, it's in the nature of eternal reality that there is no external force which requires punishment for harming innocents, but the person doing the harm will judge himself rather harshly upon returning home - which is even WORSE ;-).
    Unexpected likes this.

    Yes, I agree Roberta and I should have been more specific. I believe we all will experience some sort of lesson related to harm we have caused others, whether people or animals, as we all have hurt others at some point. We will grow from the experience.
