I totally agree, and they should be de-clawed just in case they escape to give the birds a chance. Feral cats are a real problem, and I have no problem killing them with a bullet to the head. Torture is another thing though.Michael Stumpf said:This won't be a popular position, but if it makes people keep their cats indoors, I'm all for it. If I have to see the remains of some poor bird, then these people can deal with the sight of their gutted Fluffy. Cat's do not belong outside.
Cats should never be declawed. The practice is terribly inhumane and can result in behavioral problems.giff57 said:I totally agree, and they should be de-clawed just in case they escape to give the birds a chance.

Cats should lose the use of their claws, if not by declawing then through tendon cutting. What about the cats that are declawed beacuse they rip everything to shreds, to me that is also a behavioral problem and there is an easy way to fix it.jordanb said:
I'm with you. There are some nasty ones by the dumpster at my building and they creep into the courtyard at night. One night I opened my door and it flew in my house and under my bed started hissing and would not come out.Planderella said:I wish someone would come serial-kill the stray cats in my neighborhood. I hate those things.
Interesting that you should bring up wild dogs. There has been a great deal of discussion of wolves in Wisconsin, where they have on occassion roamed as far south as Madison and have entered Door County as well. Do they belong? I would argue that they do, as part of the native ecosystem. Some people are afraid of them, though, and think they should be hunted or trapped to keep them away from their little foo-foo dogs or cats.BKM said:Skeleton: Dogs, and people for that matter, also "belong outside". Should we just learn to "live with" packs of stray dogs (or tribes of "natural" hunters and gatherers-which humans were for 95% of our history).
