"Kharma Comes Around" applies to cats, too!

    Folks in Lakewood, CO are upset that something is eating their cats ...

    Would you be happier if the head of a bird or mouse were deposited on your doorstep?

    Do you understand what cats do to other little birds & animals, Sequin? THEY KILL THEM. They often don't even eat them, rather they just kill them for the instinctive pleasure they derive from toying with them before they kill them.

    Karma's a bitch, Sequin.

    I have rigged up a FWBI (Feline Whole Body Imaging) machine at our cat door. Any cat that comes in with a prohibited item (and I'm not telling you what those are!), gets the question from me: D.Y.W.T.L.A.O.T.S.A.O.L.Y.H.E.T.? (Do You Want To Lie Around On The Sofa And Occasionally Lick Your Hind End Today).

    Too funny! My cat is only allowed outside if he escapes. I do let him go outside to the garage to "hunt" June bugs and those huge roaches we have here in Texas. (I call them B52 Roaches 'cause them suckers can fly!!! :eek:)

    Truthfully, I think them things are all along the Gulf Coast. They are sometimes called "tree roaches" or "palmeto bugs," but they are totally ickey! I also think they were featured in a scene from "Men in Black"!

    OH MAN, these things sound horrible! Suggest you relocate to the Republic of Cascadia, only downside of that is that our national animal is ariolimax columbianus, which grows only to a moderate length of 9.8 inches. On the plus side, if you've ever stepped on one in bare feet, you will have a life-time memory!

    Our neighborhood cats are mostly shut-ins. I'm going to try to re-introduce quail, bullfrogs and tree frogs to our backyard. (The kids will have charge of the eggs, hatchlings and tadpoles of course.) Wish me luck. There is one "free range" kitty in the neighborhood.

    I would prefer those slow moving gastropods over the dive-bombing roaches any day!! :D
