It's animal management for people who don't or won't manage their own animals. Granted, there are situations where an animal who is cared about will escape but those are often 'gotchas' where the owner wasn't there or couldn't stop it from happening. That's not the issue though. It's 'crazy old cat ladies' with 32 cats running loose breeding everything they can and having more.

It's a matter of being responsible when others aren't and maintaining the balance of predator to prey. Because if either one of them gets sideways on the other, a whole lot of things are affected, including humans.






I totally agree...and this happened not so long ago here in Monroe....

Thank you, TL. I think every city has at least one crazy old cat lady. Yech...that sounds like it was a hideous mess  :puah:

Egyptian Temple Cat.  Is that the Egyptian Mau?   


Likely not. Mau cats are genetically more related to North American and European cats like the Maine Coon cat.

I know all cats were worshiped as/sacred to Bastet. There is one type of cat I know of that comes from that area other than the Libyan cat the girl mentioned in her video and that is the Abbysinian cat. English soldiers stationed in North Africa brought them home as kittens to England and they began breeding them there as a cat breed. I doubt that's what the Egyptians called them, however.

I love that video because it shows very well how important the Balance is and what changes it affects.

This is my fur-ball... a domestic long-haired Tortoiseshell. All tortoiseshells are female. If it's a male, you have a rare cat on your hands. She's almost 13 years old and I've had her since she was six weeks old.

The other one is my fabulous Afghan Hound who stood six feet tall on his hind legs - 110 pounds. He 'sang' when I'd play the piano, and he danced with me if I asked him. He was a big clown; could run like the wind and turn on a dime. And he knew he was pretty. This kids in the neighborhood called him 'your bear' (my bear). "Hey lady, your bear just climbed over the fence!" Grab the keys and get in the car to chase him down. When in the car, he'd sit in my lap and try to drive. Always fun to take trips with him :thud:

So there.

OMG...I had to take him on a trip over to Fruita on the western slope (by Grand Junction) once, which is a considerable trip across the mountains and mountain passes and all 110 pounds was constantly in my lap trying to drive. He'd even put his big old paws up on the steering wheel like he knew what he was doing. Sometimes he'd go get in the passenger seat - especially if I'd roll the window down a bit enough to let him stick his nose out.

The cat is pawing at the strings on my hoodie there. She loves to chew on them and play with them.

LMAO.....It's bad enough navigating those roads without getting help from a critter......

We had one dog who hated riding in a vehicle.  Tiffany of the Winds....a Sheltie...who was pampered by Linda and the girls.  I was always traveling but it seemed as though bath time rolled around each time I got back  :thud:
