Turds around the Jeep. And in the footwell now.

They'll get theirs when I slip the hound's fetters later.

I cannot understand why someone, in an urban environment, will have (you cannot own) a cat and then let it spend almost all its time out of doors and messing in other people's gardens. Surely having a pet, of any sort, is as a form of companionship and you would want to have the pet with you most of the time.

There's a lot of dog **** around the village at the moment too.

People just let their dog out to run free.
There's going to be a backlash soon.


Some "people" leave out poisoned food around here. Probably the same type of people who interfere with kiddies.

In France do you not, by law, have to clean up after a dog as in the UK. There have been a local cases of householders taken to court in here in Scunthorpe for creating a health hazzard by not cleaning up in their own back garden. The neighbours eventually complained to the Environmental Health Dept.

Three cats here. Fantastic animals! Keep the rats, mice, rabbits and squirrels under control! Mind you we do live in the middle of nowhere so they have plenty of space to do their business and at least they bury it, unlike the neighbours dog that just lets go whenever and where ever it wants with no attempt to do it in an out of the way location.... dogs are filthy animals (and far too needy!)

I did say in an urban area. I fully understand the need for cats out in the country farm cats are often semi feral and live permanently out of doors. My gripe is against the urban dweller with a nominally house cat which spends 90% of it's time out of doors and only attempts to bury its mess in the loosest soi, ie a cultivated seed bed, it can find not in it's own garden.

Who do you think keeps the rats and mice at bay for the townies ? No cats and you'll have a bigger problem on your hands.

Plenty of rodents around here. Cats can't be very effective.

FAKE NEWS!

I prefer cats to dogs. Dogs smell and bark too much!

+1 I prefer cats to dogs. If you don't understand a cat then you are ignorant. A cat is a brilliant companion. In my experience crazy old women have dogs and real men have a cat.

In my book a companion is someone/thing that spends time with you. In this neighbourhood there is at least one cat that appears to spend most of its time out of doors. How is that being a brilliant companion.

My gripe with cat owners is that once I have taken the time to prepare a seedbed and sown the seeds I object to going out the next day and finding it scraped up, the seeds displaced and a pile of half cover faeces to have to remove. Its is MY garden and not YOUR CAT's toilet. If you cannot train the cat not to stray do as dog owners are required to do; take it out on a lead onto public land and clear up after it.

Procrastination is the thief of time

Basically no animals should be allowed to be kept in urban areas unless in a cage.

My sister lives in Horsham and she is a keen runner. She complains that the woods where she runs in is where 10 million people exercise their dogs, and the stench of dog **** is over whelming. She takes in big gulpfuls of the putrid air and smells it for days...

Cats are good companions. They come and go, need a bit of affection and give a bit back. But similarly they are very happy if you just leave them to it. Bit like me really. We look after my parents dog from time to time for a few days, and it drives me crazy over how needy it is. Always "there" looking at me. We live in the middle of nowhere surrounded by fields and woodland, and I STILL have to take it for a walk, it can't just go off and do it on its own?!

Lets just all agree nature is not designed to co-exist with us superior beings and wipe the whole lot out. Then we can run in the forest and look at our flowers in peace. Oh, wait, I see an issue with that solution.......

We have no cats, but we have these bad boys:

Actually, the one on the right is a girl. Got Tawnys too, but I have no cute pictures of them.

I used to be a cat person (grew up with them), but I am fully converted to dogs now.
