I don't understand why anyone has an outdoor cat unless it's restricted to a fenced yard and their person is with them.

 

A recent PBS show about cats said they are much more domesticated now, we're not talking about wild beings.

 

Saying we don't know what happened to an outdoor cat usually means it was something bad, like being hit by a car, being used for dog fights, getting wounded in a fight, on and on.

@x Hedge, I don't have a particular beef about where stuff is posted, but I just wanted to tell you that I love the way you write. I enjoy your posts -- anywhere. :-)

I don't know Hedge's situation, but we feed and take care of several outside kitties. Even if we could get them inside (one maybe, one never, others I'm not sure), it could endanger our inside kitties who are all shelter rescues. So that's one reason people have outdoor cats.

So...we should let them starve or suffer? I guess that's one way to solve the problem o.O

THAT I understand, totally.  It's putting out pets, especially for the night, that I don't understand.

In some cities too many animals inside the home requires licensing and then you'd be in the wrong zone as it's considered a business. Don't know what happens after that if you continue to have more than the limit.

there's a thread with pic about a personal hairstyle in Q talk.  Don't know what that has to with QVC.

Why haven't you had your outside cat spayed?

 

Dear @JillyMarie,

Because I thought it was best to have it done when she's NOT pregnant.
