    Not too much to ask for.

    I love animals too (at least the ones who don’t try chewing me to bits), but we have two cats and I’ve had to pick up enough dead birds in our yard to know that nature isn’t a milk & cookies kingdom. Can’t get mad at the cats for being true to what they are but I’ve got nothing against the birds who were harming nobody when they met their ends either. Nature, as with life itself, is not fair.

    I wouldn’t mind a couple of tuna fish sammidges myself, Calvin! Tho’ they’d probably be better if Mom made ’em.

    Tuna fish sandwich might save you from getting pounced on Calvin.

    Our cat’s hunting technique is to sit in the middle of the yard meowing to the birds to come down to die. And the stupid birds do so.

    We’ve a couple of Magpies, constantly teasing our cat. They’re about the same size as her and come up to within a paw-stroke of her but she appears to be ignoring them… I’m still wondering…

    Getting under your nerves occasionally is part of the trade-off. Straight -up tuna fish? No mayo, chopped celery, and chopped onions?

    Tuna sandwich for ever….

    Are you in the UK? Reason why I ask is that the very high density of birdlife makes them easier for cats to get. In the U.S. cats mostly eat mice and rats.
    .
    As several cities and towns have found when they got rid of their feral cats. For example, Portland Oregon decided to eliminate their feral cat population. Within a short time, they were overrun by the Norway Rat and the Black Rat. The cats were keeping them in check, and when removed, they rats multiplied.
    .
    It would be be harder now to repopulate the city with cats. In 1995, the first coyotes showed up in the city’s greenways. By law, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has jurisdiction over wild animals like that, but they claimed it was Portland’s problem and neither did much. And so by about 3 years ago, every District in the city had them. It’s reducing the dog and cat population. If that wasn’t enough, last week a pack of feral malamutes showed up in the city’s forested areas. It was bad enough when the cougar population explosion caused cougars to show up along the city’s edges. Now other species are moving into areas where they historically haven’t existed at all or haven’t existed for a century or more.

    Animals are very touchy about you fitting in. You smell wrong, wrong gender, they will attack you if you try to join in.

    G.B.:
    Our cats would eat us if they were the size of our larger dogs.

    The capacity for relationships with animals is one of those things that makes us, well, human beings. What’s sad is sometimes having to rely on animals for unconditional love. That says something about human beings as well.

    Au contraire. Life and nature actually are fair. The problem is the skewed human view point where everyone insists on being the winner. For example, I have no problem with animals feasting on my remains. By the same token, until I’m dead, i don’t plan on being a cooperative meal. :-)

    Unconditional love human for human is rare if not nonexistant.

    Saw this on a bumper sticker: I love animals; I eat them all the time.
