That Cuddly Kitty Is Deadlier Than You Think

More birds and mammals die at the mouths of cats than from automobile strikes, pesticides and poisons, collisions with skyscrapers and windmills and other so-called anthropogenic causes.

People should keep their cats indoors. That rabbit didn't have to die.

Aside from the feral cats, this is is a call to those who let their cats go outside. and allow whatever germs they may have contracted into your home.

For starters let us just acknowledge that MAN is the most deadliest creature that this world will EVER know. So unless anyone is proposing that humans should stay indoors and never walk out in the fresh air again, they should not be too quick to condemn cats to a life of cruel captivity.

As a rabbit owner who has never had a cat of my own, those photos are not pleasant for me, but I accept that they are nature and so should everyone else.

Do we make attempts to cage up all the lions in the wild to save the wildebeests? No, we accept that larger cats kill, but not these smaller ones which MAN has forced into domestication.... can a cat (or any animal) really be domesticated?

Just like any creature, they all have purpose on this earth, each one has been designed to breed at a certain rate and also designed to eat another to keep the species at a controllable rate, cats do their jobs, just like the lion does; except it.

I am so tired of some people hating on cats lately. No animal could kill more than humans do.
