me. I'm pretty disgusted that people still have cats giving
now hang on, if I decide to raise a female and let her get pregnant and have
her first litter, I'll wind up keeping probably all her kids. I like
having a few cats around. I'm actually down to three and that's the lowest
amount of cats I've had in decades. The most dogs, and no more, I'm still
holding at two, as Sugar and Sméagol is all I can take.
But I just lost my oldest female, Pye and now I just have fixed males. But
eventually I'll miss having a female cat around and I've actually considered
getting one that I didn't fix just to have a few kittens. I've missed it.
So not to berage you, but you can believe that not everyone is as
responsible as me to let a female have a batch of kittens. Where as the
asshole across the driveway is allowing his cats to interbreed again and
it's becoming quite a mess over there.
One of the reasons that Polluxx was out in the pastures during the violent
thunderstorm and lightening we had when he dissappeared for seven days and
just got back last Sunday blind in one eye and mentally messed up from
whatever harrowing experience he had while he was missing. There are a lot
of unfixed cats of both genders procreating across my driveway.
I hope youse don't think of me as disgusting because I want to have a female
and possibly a batch of kittens. I might even change my mind later on. I
just love the whole thing.
I agree and support that neutering feral populations of starving
diseased cats reduces suffering. However, that does not mean that all
pet cats have to be prevented from breeding. If someone is prepared to
be responsible for their kittens' lifetime feeding and health, there is
no reason at all why you should censure that choice.
I am not throwing your religious beliefs in your face, Victoria, but
you frequently cite them here as back-up for some sanctimonious snipe
at someone else, choosing to put them in the public domain for our
consideration. So when you lapse from grace, I'm afraid it attracts
some amusement. Rather like watching a fat lady lumbering round in
circles shrieking "look at me, I'm a very slim and graceful ballet
dancer you clodhoppers, oh yes I am so I am"..just as she falls flat on
her arse in a cowpat, making shit fly.

um, yeah, that can be funny, but why would buddhism be incompatible
with spaying? I'm not a buddha yet, but I see Victoria acting out of
compassion for the animals that get killed by shelters daily and it
makes sense to me. And if you don't buy that, spay and neuter to
limit the spread of disease that accompanies excessive feral cat/dog
obgardening: the pussy willows are lovely this year, no?
I support the nurting/spaying of mixed breed cats, heck I've saved some, had
the operation done and found them good loving homes. Right now I've got 3
males awaiting for the funds to build up to have it done. But at the same
time I am a breeder of pure breed cats, I've bred and shown Japanese
Bobtails, and the ones that I sell to people go with agreements to have them
fixed too and the over all number has not been great as I only use one queen
once every 18 months. They also go with CFA papers too. Have you ever been
to a cat show? I'd guess not, because then you would know and might even
understand more about the world of the true cat breeders, and I'm not
talking about the people who let strays hang around or don't care for their
One of the ones I have awaiting their vist to the vets is an old boy, he was
around this trailer park for at lest 5 years after being left behind by
someone who got kicked out. He more or less rules the area, but other males
have come in or grown up here and his age was not helping. So after many
trys and as many months, this last winter I was able to trap him. He now
lives in my small side bedroom after cutting off all his matted fur and
healing the old battle scars & such. He'll now live out his life inside and
being cared for.

I'm not fond of breeding cats and dogs. I would never go to a cat
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. I can easily get
behind that. It's nothing personal about not being fond of breeding.
We are coming from different worlds, but both obviously love animals.
We have that in common.
That's strange. When I asked you on Thursday about the Buddhist path
in relation to your judgmental comment to another poster you replied
