Re: Cats

However I do find KingCam particularly revolting, just as I would anyone that feels killing people's pets is ok, whether it's illegal or not, you make someone mourn a loss. I stated more than once I wouldn't knowingly kill someone's pet. I was making a point, a drastic one, but I was trying to make...

Re: Cats

So, what would this person like to have done with feral cats? Keep them in cages? Feral cats do not become socialized to humans, ever. They are beyond that stage. Sterilize and release?
