Fluffykins

Marc from Birkenhead

G'day, I read an article today that raises concerns about cats. www.stuff.co.nz....

1st, my family has cats, 2nd, I used to breed budgies, gold fish &c. so I know what a cute little cat, can do to my pets when they hook their claws through the cage fronts, or peer into the pond - they kill.

I'm reminded of the story of the scorpion and the fox wherein, the scorpion stings the fox after getting a ride across the river, the fox as it dies, asks why? "It is in my nature" says the scorpion. So it is with cats.

I'm going to ask cat owners, if I had budgies or goldfish that came from next door and killed Fluffykins the cat, would you be upset? What makes your cute little predator, more protected than other people's pets, native birds, lizards and frogs?

My family says, 'oh she only brings in the occasional sparrow, once a year'.... Get some DNA analysis on it's poo. 'Oh she's too fat to catch anything'... how she get so fat? If the cat is outdoors it'll eat what it can.

My advice, keep the cat indoors, let it out only when supervised, if you must fulfil it's hunting instincts, breed pet mice, let them together in a room, video it and post it on uTube, you'll be sensation!
