Hi everyoneYou know, the guys/hunters may not be able to call you out on this but I can.
what are you all like!?
Yes, I was a bit strong on the ''wipe'' bit - send them to Timbuktu or something, I spend about from 6am in the morning until 2am in the next morning of my day on cats, feeding them, cleaning their houses spending time with them, it takes a while to get around them all and when the last one is done I have to start all over again - my choice I know, and I am not complaining at all - it is a privilege to have them, but running after 11 cats can be quite a job when there are three different groups of them all in different places and I am awaiting a cat run to be built - which will make this sort of situation easier I should imagine.
You do not have a clue what I do or how much I care about my cats.
Going by your statements here, you clearly are not and have not had any experience working with feral cats. I actually even doubt you feed ferals on a regular basis.
You are basing how feral cats are on something you have "read about" and not on actually being around them or working with them. I know this because I know the difference and I have read things written about ferals and I actually work with them, tame them and home them.....and I do it quite frequently and have been doing it for some time. Funny thing is you don't even know what you said that exposed you here.
Your only purpose here is to attack hunters and you just let the "cat" out of the bag and showed your hand with your complete lack of knowledge about working with ferals. You are telling stories.
From the information gleaned here Cat-Lady, do not be concerned or share your thoughts, ideas, or reasoning with this one. She will attempt to drag you down into a morass of illogical weirdeness. Even here, at this early point in the conversation, she accuses you of not "actually" knowing anything about feral cats and therefore not able to advocate for their welfare. Obviously, you can probably figure this out .... and yet, I will give you the heads-up. Don't even bother .... She accuses you of basing your knowledge on somethinbg you have heard about or read about ... whereas most of us can figure out that you are dealing with a true situation ....
It seems clear that you do not like the actions of the hunters in your environment and you are concerned with the cats, both feral and otherwise. Seems we might be discussing the rights of the hunters vs. your concerns re: the cats and possibly other animals including the well-being of humans in the area. Seems that some of the hunting might be legal while some may not (birds?). Either way, the well-being of the cats is an important issue and one that you have taken on. There might be some "yahooos" in your area, or in other words, those who don't give a hoot for the environment just as long as they can have some fun. From what I underastand, this is your concern.
I am sumarizing here. Just listening ...
