Does anyone in FL or Georgia want a kitty? Super sweet-loves belly rubs! I’ll even pay for his (I think) vet check up. #cats #adoptme #orangetabby

Why New Zealand is right to consider banning them in order to save its wildlife. »

I love my cats, and I love wildlife. That’s why I keep my cats indoors. I just do not fucking get it when people are like “But, OMG, they’re an animal and they need to roam free”. No, they don’t. They are healthier, live longer, are less susceptible to disease and parasites and won’t kill endangered birds, rodents and reptiles.

This is a HUGE problem in Florida. There are untold numbers of feral cats, and since kitten season is almost year round because of the climate it’s nearly impossible to get their numbers down. Euthanizing doesn’t work because more cats just move into that territory. Spay/Neuter and release can work, but requires lots and lots of manpower and persistence for it to do any real good. Florida has the second highest number of endangered, endemic species (Hawaii is number one), and ferals hunt them for food. You don’t need to add in your pet cat who kills them just for fun. So, fucking spay and neuter your animals and fucking keep them inside! It’s not “unnatural”, it’s not “cruel”-it’s just the right fucking thing to do.

Cat’s Boudoir Photography Shocks Internet
Everyone knew Tokki the cat had a bit of a wild side, but it wasn’t until a series of nude bedroom photos leaked onto the Internet did anyone realize how audacious she really is.
“It’s bold, I’ll give her that,” said close friend Tilly Anderson.  ”Tokki can probably kiss any chance of running for public office in the future goodbye, though!”
Not everyone is so shocked by the photos.  Leslie Warren, a cat photographer from Queens, NY thinks the photos are quite fetching.  ”They’re beautifully done and Tokki is stunning,” she said.  ”I don’t know what all the fuss is about.  The feline form should be celebrated.”
