An iPad ??

Not even a cat typing but has managed to acquire an iPad to send these messages.
Well, cats like playing fruit ninja so they're bound to have iPads.

Yes when I was a child I didn't think that small animals felt any pain and I intentionally killed some frogs and a bird and lots of insects ... I hate myself for that. Poor innocent creatures.
Now if I see a fly trapped on a window I will let it out.

Yeah if you say so
Thats my belief.

If karma does indeed come around to bite me in the ass, then I'll be none the wiser to it.

Thats pretty cool.

Think of the scratches on the tablet tho. They must need to replace the screens constantly!

Perhaps if you get eviscerated by an escaped tiger it might

I've always wanted a pet young lion. I understand the risks but you could just fall asleep on it. It would be amazing and it would be the best sleep ever.

Then it would probably eat me. I would consider that my stupidity for falling asleep on a lion that karma getting me.

I feed insects to my mice. I tell you, since I started feeding them the worms they are 100% healthier, and they live much longer. If you have any rodents as pets, try it as a supplement to their diet in addition to the pet store food!

Other than that, no, although I was in the car when a seagull swooped down under my mum's bonnet. It was on a busy road so we couldn't stop to check whether it was ok, but it must have died, even if it was just injured the next car would have certainly done it a split second later. Oh, actually, I did accidentally trap one of my aquatic frogs inside an ornament and he must have suffocated. I was so upset at the time.

Then there was the cats, I really couldn't give a toss about them, it wasn't right, I could have avoided it, but as I said, they're only cats, they're horrible creatures so i don't care.
How do you feel about killing humans, and how are they different to cats? Real question.

I suppose I feel we're the dominant race. and there are strict laws to try and prevent killing humans. Whereas cats are just cats. What difference would it make to anyone, or any other cats, if I killed a cat.

Sure its a living thing, but so is a plant. How is that different ?

Sure its in some way intelligent, but so are any other animals we kill for food. How is that different ?

Sure some people find them cute. I find calves cute but people eat venison and have no problem with it. How is that different ?

So what does you finding calves cute have to do with people eating deer meat?

I suppose the main point is what reason would you have to kill a cat other than being an evil murdering prick.

No reason really, if it was a human then it would be a serious crime. But its no different than someone killing a spider, a frog, a mouse or any other animal that isn't used for meat or isn't harmful to a person.

It's a pretty shit thing to kill/torture an animal simply because you dont like it. And I say that as someone who did the same thing as a kid, difference being I regret it deeply now. You dont seem to regret it at all. I might be wrong but it suggests you've got a bit of a nasty streak going on there.

Depends who owns the cat really.

There was a radio presenter on an obscure London speech radio station who used to go on constantly wondering on-air about the legalities (regards the cruelty to animals act) of slaughtering his own cat/dog with a view to eating it.

Well I was being somewhat facetious BUT:

Quote (from you): 'I hate them, I don't care. They're only cats.'

Not only do you feel no remorse for torturing living creatures, you are proud of it and basically rubbing it in peoples faces; do you seriously feel entitled to any respect or empathy from others?

Oh I disagree. I don't regret it but I don't regret anything I've done in the past. I certainly wouldn't do it now, while I still dislike cats, the thought of doing what I did wouldn't enter my head.

That said, I still don't see why killing cats is worse than killing any other kind of animal. I think some people have such a soft spot for cats that hurting/killing them is deemed worse than anything else. It's hypocritical.

Well It's only been about cats because it was cats you killed and tortured. I'd say the same about hurting any animal. Other posters are saying they regret hurting other animals.

And before you ask - no, I don't eat meat.

Eating meat or not doesn't really have any relevance in this discussion.

So the problem is that I don't regret what I did ?

Kittens for sure.
Please not Dogs vs Cats again. That debate will never end. (I like both cause i'm normal )

I've caught plenty of fish too.

Well no-one can change the past but we can all evolve into kinder people by recognising the harm in what we did - you don't seem to have any desire to though.

(psychopaths are obviously exempt since they're incapable of feeling empathy)







Fascinating as our debate is I can't stay here enjoying myself all night, will continue tomorrow if you wish, peace out
