The animal complaint thread. :devil: :devil: :devil:

Yesterday began with Bun and the neighbor cat killing one of the baby wild turkeys. :cry: :cry: :cry: Poor mom was running around squawking while the kitties had their evil way with the by then defunct fowl.

Now she has decided to make a bed of my new computer bag. Presently she is pulling out burrs and spitting about every other one into the bag. And my customers are really impressed with the gray hair stuck to the outside. :uhh:

Once upon a time, we caught two of our dogs playing tug-of-war with our beloved kitty Einstein. I got there just in time; just before they ripped him in two. :surprised

Hey, at least I don't eat dead things in the livingroom.

Well, actually I do... Okay, my fault; bad example.

We have two cats and one dog (a Yorkie), and we keep them inside. We live on a busy street and have seen two many dead animals on the road - including at cat who was killed last year. I heard the car break and the thud, before the car drove off leaving the cat on the road. I went outside to retrieve it. :mad:

The few times our female cat (Misty) got outside, she had to be retrieved from a tree - about 25+ feet up. The first time, I was out of town and my wife had to call a tree service ($120) to get the cat out of the tree. The other two times, I was in town, and I have to climb the tree - a 30 ft spruce tree with lots of branches. Fortunately, Misty came to me and I put her in my shirt while I climbed down.

Besides the traffic, we have to deal with ticks and the potential for Lyme disease.

Our cats are good mousers, and occasionally we find a present in the kitchen, living room, dining room or bedroom. The last time, I was awoken by a strange meowing and I thought a cat was going to throw up. Instead, I saw the cat sitting there on the bedroom floor looking at what I thought was a large hairball. Well it was an almost dead mouse - so I removed it to the back yard for the owls or crows to finish off.

The dog would occasionally catch a chipmunk, but lately they have been much smarter and get out of the way. She never quite gets to the squirrels. We have the dog tethered so she has a diameter of about 24 feet in which she can run around the backyard.

Ivan - it helps to have cats the same size as the dog(s). It's a bit more sporting when they are equal size. :biggrin:

Except that throws the balance. Cats have a big edge with those razor-sharp, retractable claws.

Why were the dogs attacking Einstein? Did he try to move in on someone's food dish?

No, apparently he just looked like something that needed to be pulled apart.

The dogs were still puppies ~ 1 year or less I think.
