Worldwide Hatred Against Cats

February 4, 2013

Ed. Note: Many cat owners are offended by this global attack on cats. Unfortunately, some become defensive and illogical. Rather than discuss the issue, they state that humans are worse predators and therefore shouldn't "point fingers". That side-steps the point which is that cat owners could/should do more to entertain their cats instead of letting them get their entertainment killing. Many "outdoor" cats have become happy indoor cats. I spend more than an hour daily playing with my cat (which was a stray), and provide him with various toys. He prefers to stay indoors. Cat owners who make no attempt to curtail, or simply deny, their cat's recreational killing are culpable. Arguing that killing is natural is like arguing that rape is natural. What is 'natural' (see logical fallacy Appeal to Nature) is an unacceptable argument if it infringes on anyone else's rights.
