a can of worms

I do have a remarkable ability to piss people off. Just go read some of the comments on this post. I have decided that I hate cat-lovers more than I hate cats now. Those are some sick fucking people.

But Acidman, have you ever thought that perhaps a cat killing birds is just natural process? Would you shoot a lion for killing as it does?

Posted by Pamala at June 5, 2005 11:06 PM

You're goddam RIGHT I would, Pamela. You seem to think that if a lion drags one of my children off and eats it alive, that's just "natural" and I should accept it without complaint. BULL SHIT!!! I'm gonna kill THAT sumbitch before it kills me or one of mine. That's about as "natural" an instinct as I can imagine.

Oh for the love of GOD. Cats eat birds, Rob. That's what they do. Why don't you train that gun where you really mean to aim and quit taking your considerable wrath out on creatures who aren't doing a damn thing to you.

Did you think about the precious little chicken that you fried up and served, warm, with a side of gravy the other night?

I didn't think so.

MY yard, MY birds and MY GUN, Joni. Somebody else's fucking cat. You do the math. If the people who "loved" that cat so much didn't let it run wild in MY YARD, it wouldn't have had its ass popped. And trust me about one thing. I will KILL IT OR ANY OTHER LIKE IT the next time I shoot. No more pellet gun. I'll use the .22, dig a hole and bury a dead cat to make the world a better place. And to piss off some more got-dam cat-lovers. I'll bet those people make excellent parents, considering how much they appreciate feral instincts. Do that with a child a see what you get.

You must arrogantly assume that your priorities match God's as far as the value of one of His creations' life. Perhaps your health problems are His way of putting a few pumps of His Heavenly pellet gun into your earthly ass to give YOU a fair warning shot. Think about it hillbilly.

I don't believe in God, PJ. But I'm pretty sure that YOU are fucked-up as a worm. OOPS! Did I just insult worm-lovers here?

Bejus! I read such comments and tremble in fear when I realize that such people actually VOTE.


Haha. Cats suck. One time I was walking down my road when this little kitty wouldn't get the fuck away from me. I picked that piece of shit by its stomach and chest and hurled it into this park next to my house. Had to have been 50 yards. That little rodent didn't land on its feet, I'll assure you of that. Stupid cat. And there's nothing wrong with popping cats. They're a nuisance to society as a whole.

Rob. Have you been drinking the Blackberry hooch this morning? Your reasoning on this is about like someone that is pissed off and drunk as hell. Why not shoot the people that have pissed you off so bad instead of a got-damn cat?

I have decided that I hate cat-lovers more than I hate cats now.

Are you gonna start popping pellets into their asses now too? ;-)

I do not believe in cruel behavior to animals-any animal including cats. I do believe that I have the right to protect my property from the abuse of other people and other peoples pets.

Posted by: GUYK on June 6, 2005 11:13 AM

I have cats and I shoot back. My cats love to kill snakes and tree rats, if they fucked with my birds, which I feed all of them about a 100.00 each month, then I would have to kill me some cats. I love my birds and those cats are hunters, not lap cats. My feeders are high off the ground and if I see one of my cats just looking at a bird, I put my big ass foot up his ass, they know better, Cat

I don't like pet shit in my yard which is why I don't have pets in the first place. I also wouldn't hesitate to pop a kitty or a dog with a BB gun if I catch the animal in the act. I often wonder how these careless pet owners would feel if I went over and dropped a load on their lawn every day. I tell ya what, they'd be positively outraged.

Posted by: Susie T on June 6, 2005 11:44 AM

I don't recommend that people shoot pets, however, a responsible cat owner does not allow them to run outside.

I love cats. I have eight of them - and they are all indoor cats. 7 of the 8 cats were strays - dumped at the Ft. Leavenworth stable or just dumped and managed to find my house.

I have neighbors with cats who kill my chipmunks (well, the wild chipmunks that live in my front yard - I'm quite fond of their antics) and my birds. I can't blame the cats, but I do chase them off with the water hose, and I let the owners know that their kitties are not welcome in my yard - not that it makes any difference.

I don't blame Acidman for being pissed about cats killing the birds. People need to be responsible for their animals.

Posted by: beth donovan on June 6, 2005 11:52 AM

I like cats, however: Cats are extremely cruel when they kill birds. They don't just kill them outright most of the time. Second, there are about three smells worse than cat shit in this world, and they require either burning flesh or rotting flesh. Getting cat shit out of the grooves of a shoe are a pain in the ass. Third, nature can be nature on her own property. I probably would have sprayed the cat with water, though. They hate that.

Posted by: Adam Lawson on June 6, 2005 12:16 PM

My neighbor lost 8 cats in 6 months. Why? because she let the out of the house and they became coyote chow.
I personally feel it should be the owners shot in the ass for being so stupid and letting their cat out.

Posted by: Maeve on June 6, 2005 12:24 PM

It takes a special kind of ignorance to not realize that cats are introduced species to North America. They are not supposed to be here. They should all be removed. They have destroyed the songbird population in many areas and they are working on destroying the rest. Kill them all if they are outside.

Posted by: dbltap on June 6, 2005 12:25 PM

Aren't we all an introduced species to North America. Why not kill everybody and everything that is outside. Fuckin' dumbass.

Posted by: assrot on June 6, 2005 12:29 PM

I think God ought to sue PJ for libel. Of course the penalty might be more that PJ has bargained for.

Uhh, maybe ask the nearest Thai restrauant cook. Been told they taste just like chicken.

Posted by: GUYK on June 6, 2005 02:01 PM


Wrong day for this post. Driving to work this morning I noticed a dead squirrel in front of me. Three quarters of a second later I realized that it wasn't quite dead yet. Two seconds later I realized that it was a kitten of probably two months. I stopped my car in the middle of the street and picked up that kitten which was obviously in bad shape after an encouter with a car. I drove 15 minutes to the nearest vet all the while listening to that kitten panting for life. When I got to the vet I then paid $58 dollars for the privilege of having to pay for the euthanasia of a suffering animal. I then finished my drive to work and washed that cat's blood off my hands. Rob, if you decide to shoot a cat, at least look to see if it has a collar. If it does, that means that you are destroying someone else's property and probably means that there's someone who loves that cat. You're not a cat lover. BFD. I am. I also love dogs. Try and tell me with a straight face that you wouldn't by righteously pissed if someone killed your dog for hunting a squirrel on that person's property. You would and you would be right. Now if your dog broke into a sheep pasture and was killing some sheep, and the shepherd killed your dog, you'd be mad, but at least you'd understand why your dog was killed. If there was a dog on my land trying to kill a squirrel that I liked, I'd chase the dog off. I[ve done it before (not for squirrels though). On one occasion, the dog ran into the street and was killed by a car. That was a shitty day for me. That dog could have belonged to a boy who would spend the next week looking for his dog, hoping against hope that he was still alive and would come home. If you decide to go ahead and kill that cat, then be a man and take it to the owner and tell the owner why you had to kill the cat. I hope for your sake that there isn't a little kid peering around the edge of the door listening to your story.

Posted by: Kukulkan on June 6, 2005 02:47 PM

Kuku -- that was a very nice, compassionate thing that you did for the kitty. But I think you are missing the point: KEEP YOUR FRIGGIN ANIMALS OFF OF MY PROPERTY. I happen to hate cats and I don't much like dogs either. They are all a pain in the ass as far as I'm concerned. If someone's dog or cat gets shot because said dog or cat was on someone else's property, then too bad. I get sick and tired of picking up someone else's dog poop in our front yard. Keep YOUR animals in YOUR yard and out of MINE and we will get along just fine. That is what is wrong with most people these days -- they are friggin irresponsible.

Posted by: Alaska Kim on June 6, 2005 03:10 PM

Alaskan Kim:

The dog that I mentioned getting killed, I chased it off our property for the very reasons you mention. I felt shitty, but I don't think I did anything wrong. I completely agree with you that owners should keep their pets on their own property. No argument. However, I think the wrong of letting your dog shit on someone else's property is pretty small in comparison to killing someone else's dog for taking a dump on your property or for killing a songbird that you don't own. The point of my post was that if Rob knows someone own's that cat (because of a collar), then he has to think about the ramifications of his killing the cat and whether the justification supports the ramifications. Rob's a country boy. I'd bet a good deal of money he grew up with a dog and that he knows a simple truth, you don't fuck with someone else's dog. It's a rule, same as you don't fuck another man's wife. Hell, I now some people that probably rate killing their dog as a worse crime than fucking their wife. I'm not passing judgment, I'm just saying that a bit of reflection is in order before Rob goes Rambo on Mittens.

Posted by: Kukulkan on June 6, 2005 03:41 PM

Kuku -- I wouldn' t just grab a gun and go out and shoot someone's animal, UNLESS I have warned the owner repeatedly that their little Fido is going to get shot between the eyeballs if they don't keep Fido off of my property. After I've come to you and told you to keep your animals off of my property, consider yourself warned.

Posted by: Alaska Kim on June 6, 2005 04:28 PM

Alaska Kim:
We're on the same wavelength on the issue. Hell, my mom used to shoot the neighbor dogs with .22 pumpkin shot. I thought that was overkill, but within the boundaries (barely) of acceptable behavior. I didn't have any problem with Rob shooting the cat with a pellet gun. I probably wouldn't have pumped it up to 5, but I don't know his pellet gun, and again, his behavior was within the boundaries (i.e., non-lethal, non crippling force). I thought that Rob was blowing hot air when he said (in his initial post) he was considering lethal force. This post made me think he was being serious. And like I said, I'm more sensitive than normal today.

Posted by: Kukulkan on June 6, 2005 04:53 PM

I can understand being sensitive about the kitty and I don't even like cats. But other people do, and that's fine, as long as you take care of them and keep them home. No one likes to see that, especially a kitty that didn't know any better. Blame that incident on the irresponsible and insensitive owner.

Unless there wasn't one, and it was a stray. But that is a whole nother bottle of wine -- people who don't get their animals fixed.

Posted by: Alaska Kim on June 6, 2005 05:07 PM

I don't know if I totally agree with shooting a cat for hunting birds but I can say that if I ever again catch my neighbor's cat scratching a hole through the screen on my back door I'm going to drop kick it off the balcony.

Posted by: Kirk on June 6, 2005 05:25 PM

I have to agree with the first two comments. I'm not exactly a cat person, but cats killing birds is just nature. A lion taking off with your child, well that's different. As for the third comment PEEEEJAY is just an asshole who needs to be ignored.

Posted by: Sam on June 6, 2005 05:33 PM

Grow some balls, people. After all, humans are simply animals that learned how to take nature's elements and throw them together to form tools that they could use to make performing most actions easier. I'd have probably shot the fucking cat too.

Posted by: JG22 on June 6, 2005 08:11 PM

I don't like cats, and I don't PEOPLE who like cats. Bet your cat-loving ass on one thing.

If I find another one in MY yard, it's a dead cat. Sue me.

Posted by: Acidman on June 6, 2005 08:20 PM

This sadistic streak is really the only thing I find distasteful about this site.

Hunting is hunting, this is just killing stuff for pleasure. I thought "real" southerners didn't do that.

Posted by: GORDON on June 6, 2005 09:00 PM

Jesus Christ! So it was morally evil if kids of rural counties back in the fifties went to the city dump with their .22s and shot rats for fun?

Posted by: JG22 on June 6, 2005 09:27 PM

I speak for all the rehabbers of birds out there - cats are NOT a native species in this country. They roam loose as the result of owners who don't give a shit about them or the things they kill. All cats should be spayed and kept indoors by their owners. That way they won't kill or maim 1/5 of all the bird species in this country - and they won't get hit by cars or get rabies. Sounds about right.

Posted by: suzeisnotfooledbyislam on June 6, 2005 09:38 PM

Off subject a bit, but:

But Acidman, have you ever thought that perhaps a cat killing birds is just natural process? Would you shoot a lion for killing as it does?

Posted by Pamala at June 5, 2005 11:06 PM

So does she NOT have a problem with my two dogs playing Tug-of-War with a cat they find in their yard?

I mean, THAT'S natural, too.

We have a saying here in Oklahoma,: You can fuck with my horses, you can fuck my woman, you can shoot my dogs ( and cats if I had any), Just dont fuck with my whiskey. MURRY

Posted by: murry on June 7, 2005 02:00 AM

I raised chickens, pheasants, and turkeys for a while. I had a problem with a couple local dogs, owned by the same family. The refused to keep their dogs off my property, and I got tired of losing my birds. I decided to start shooting dogs, (to be honest, it only took one). "My Property" means exactly what it says, it's not your pet's playground, my birds were not there to entertain, and nourish your animals. I did'nt have any regrets then, and none now.

Funny thing, thats probably exactly what they'll do too. Guess what Rob, this post makes you public enemy number one every time a cat goes missing. I bet the B C saves this one up, just like your 'nigger' post, and whips your ass with it.

Posted by: robert in england on June 7, 2005 07:51 AM

Gordon, you must be misreading something. The cat is killing for pleasure (cats DO kill for pleasure; I've seen dozens of cat-killed birds that didn't get eaten). Rob is just protecting birds he considers his. So what if he enjoys it? Who the hell is going to go deer hunting or fishing if they don't enjoy it?

Posted by: Adam Lawson on June 7, 2005 07:53 AM

People like Rob are the reason I dont let my cats out of the house. But in fairness to Rob, I also dont let my cats out because I dont want to witness the FOOD CHAIN taking place in my backyard. I had a beautiful cat (as a kid) who was an outdoor/indoor cat...and every time he came back with a chipmunk or I found the remnants of a bird on the back steps, I couldnt look at him (the cat) without feeling ill..

That having been said, cats are much better off INDOORS, away from gun wielding cat haters, coyotes, and cars....If you love your cat, keep it inside....and if you let it out, dont expect OTHERS to love it as you do. Here endeth the lesson....

Posted by: Ruth on June 7, 2005 07:54 AM

"I don't like cats, and I don't PEOPLE who like cats. Bet your cat-loving ass on one thing. "

I'm assuming you mean you don't like people who like cats as well?

I hated cats until a year ago. I now have one of my own and love the little shit to death.

Does that mean you don't like me? I'm crushed, I was just starting to think you did!

Posted by: livey on June 7, 2005 09:09 AM

I don't like cats, but they are useful rodent control so I have 2 of them. I like dogs, but some of the morons around here let their hunting dogs loose so they can find their way home while they are training them. A couple of those dogs found their way onto my property not long ago raising all kinds of hell with my animals (chickens, guineas, the horse). If my dogs had been outside it would have been no contest - they eat intruders. As it happened, they were in the house so I took out after the trespassers with my .22. If you don't want your animals getting shot in someone else's yard, keep them out of someone else's yard. Simple.
Now I keep a couple of containers of paintballs in the freezer for just such an occasion. It'll hurt them but not kill them and when they get home their owners will know they pissed someone off.
Besides, I remember my brother getting shot in the ass with rock salt as a kid for trespassing - and he wasn't even killing birds.

Posted by: Just another Jen on June 7, 2005 06:00 PM

So to look at this objectively, we have to ask ourselves why cat owners don't keep their pets indoors. There really is one overriding reason. A cat litter box. You see, most cat lovers love their little kitties, but hate the smell, so allow Fluffy to go outside and poopoo somewhere else. Cats seemingly don;t like the smell either, so they pick a place far enough away from home to where THEY don't have to smell it when they're hanging around the front porch. My neighbor's cats decided my front flower garden was where they would go, giving me free fertilizer, but an awful stench. This lasted all of two weeks when I baited a trap with good ole tuna, captured the offending little shitters, and........well, I'll let you guess the rest of the story. Needless to say, I no longer have a problem with my flower garden being used as a litter box and the smell is that of flowers, not poop. Lesson to be learned? If you love your cats, KEEP THEM INDOORS AND PUT UP WITH THE CAT LITTER SMELL YOURSELF.

Well, this should help you rest easy tonight, Rob. I haven't voted since John Anderson (NOT the country singer) ran for President.
