A Dallas Man Was Trapping Feral Cats, Then Leaving Them Without Food or Water

Categories: Animal Welfare

Back in 2003, a photographer named Lee Emmert bought a vacant 89-year-old church near Maple Avenue and the Tollway and turned it into a live/work space with two spacious lofts and studio areas. Emmert moved to Portland a couple of years later but kept the church, dubbed the Sanctuary, which he continues to rent out.

The neighborhood, a bit too far eastwest and a bit too working class to be considered Oak Lawn, is pock-marked with vacant lots. A particularly large one sits directly across Kings Road from the Sanctuary, its brush-covered expanse providing an ideal breeding ground for feral cats.

Most who have rented the lofts seem to have more or less ignored them, but one of the current occupants, whose name is not listed in police reports, became fed up with the constant presence of yeowling felines. So, he began trapping them.

He didn't set out to harm the animals, one witness told police. He was merely catching them so they could be removed and taken elsewhere.

Problem was, he never really followed through on that last part. He kept the cats confined for days in cardboard boxes and clear plastic containers, not bothering to give them food, water, or air holes to breath through. Finally, someone called the police.

The cops showed up Thursday at 8 p.m. They found eight cats, all alive but noticably malnourished. Animal control officers arrived to take them to the shelter and took over the investigation. So far, there have been no animal cruelty charges.

Licensing and laws do nothing to curb the problem. If cats are required to be licensed then cat-lickers just stop putting collars on their cats, as they did by me. And they won't even bother getting them micro-chipped, especially not that. They want absolutely nothing that can hold them legally accountable for the actions of their cats. We're not talking about the topmost responsible citizens of the world, you know. They don't want that responsibility of what their cat has done coming back on them. If they had even one iota of a sense of responsibility and respect for all other lives on this planet we wouldn't even be having these discussions.

However, I found something that DOES work, works well, and works fast (relative to the years it takes trying to educate deceitful and lying cat-lickers that accomplishes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING). Where I live cat-lickers have learned that _ALL_ cats, stray and feral, collared or not, ear-tipped or not (because TNR con-artists now just clip cats' ears only, WITHOUT sterilizing or vaccinating them, to protect their hoarded cats from being trapped and euthanized), _ALL_ their cats are shot on sight and buried whenever found away from supervised confinement.

The ONLY thing that works is destroying any of their cats found outdoors off their property. They either learn to stop getting more cats that die under the wheels of cars or from animal attacks, or they finally learn how to be a responsible pet owner, respectful neighbor, and learn to keep their invasive species animal under confined supervision, as it should be. Win win win all around.

You can't train a cat to stay home but I found that, in time, you CAN train a cat-owner into being a responsible pet-owner and a respectable neighbor. Most of them are so phenomenally stupid, disrespectful, and criminally irresponsible though that you have to make at least 12-15 of their cats permanently disappear before they even start to figure out what they've been doing wrong all during their sorry, useless, and pathetic lives. (Though the ones by me who were adopting "barn cats" from "barn-cat programs" were uniquely cretinized and lobotomized. I had to shoot and bury many hundreds of their cats, to stop their cats from annihilating the very last of my native wildlife, before they started to learn.)

If you live where its not legal to use firearms then check into 700-1200fps air-rifles and pointed vermin-pellets. Many of the new ones come with their own sound-suppressor designs built-in, specifically designed for shooting vermin cats in urban areas, the demand is that great. Failing that, then there's always the SSS and TDSS Cat Management Programs that are exploding in popularity worldwide. Shoot, Shovel, & Shut-Up; or Trap, Drown, Shovel, & Shut-Up. Both methods are legal on every square foot of this earth. No local laws were violated if it never happened. (Where cats have already learned to evade all trapping methods, then inexpensive generic acetaminophen (overseas paracetamol) pain-relievers are a more species-specific vermin poison. A method condoned by even National Geographic and Audubon Society (and many others). But you really need to dispose of that cat safely so that wildlife won't die from the many deadly diseases cats spread even after their death.)

I don't see anyone dumping cats where I live anymore. They don't even adopt more than can be kept under lock & key 24/7. When driving through the area I don't see even one cat on anyone's doorsteps anymore. I always keep an eye out to see if there are more free-roaming cats that will have to be shot. And if I'll have to leave fish-oil trails on all the roadsides again, leading right to my IR surveillance system and laser-sighted rifle.

Leaving ANY of their invasive species cats outside in my area means certain death for that cat, their further existence can be counted in hours. You'd think everyone else could learn from this simple lesson. The quickest way to solve an unwanted animal and irresponsible pet-owner problem is to let everyone know that you will quickly and humanely destroy every last one of their unwanted, uncared-for, or unsupervised animals for them. They either grow up fast or, far more plausible, dump their animals elsewhere to become someone else's problem.

You just can't be an enabler of criminally irresponsible spineless and heartless idiots — or they remain that way. (At least where you live, anyway.)

IF THERE ARE NOT DIRECT AND IMMEDIATE IRREVERSIBLE CONSEQUENCES TO THEIR CRIMINALLY-NEGLIGENT AND CRIMINALLY-IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIORS AND VALUES THEN THEY LEARN ABSOLUTELY *NOTHING*.

I found a way to turn my home and lands into a 100% fatal cat-trap which I now share with everyone who has been plagued by moron cat-lickers and their criminally irresponsible and earth-destroying values. By using IR wildlife surveillance cameras and baiting trails of fish-oils along all the roadsides for miles around leading right to a feeding dish within range of my scoped and laser-sighted rifle. This can totally clean-out ANY stray cats in your whole area! VERY EFFECTIVE if you have idiot cat-licking problem-neighbors by you too.

You can now get VERY NICE IR surveillance cameras on ebay for only $15 [search ebay with the string: CCTV (IR, infra-red) -- the 48 IR LED ones are best], and $15 rifle laser-sights as well. For only a $30 investment and the drained oils from tuna or sardine tins (or a bottle of fish-oil-fertilizer from your garden center) to make trails on all your roadsides, you can get rid of EVERY LAST ONE OF THEIR CATS in only a couple seasons!

Further Help: These cats are skittish as all get out. Illuminate your yard with red-floods dimmed low on dimmers (they also put out tons of IR illumination). Once you spot one of their vermin cRats on your surveillance monitor, turn off all your indoor lights, and then SLOWLY, VERY SLOWLY, open the door so as not to scare them out of your yard. The dimmed-low outdoor floods also helping to shield your presence from their view and provide enough light to help aim by. Use the laser-sight to aim for a precision chest-shot. They die in under 3 seconds, often less than 1 second, not even enough time to make a sound. This is FAR FAR FAR more humane than the days of terror and torment that even TNR advocates put their cats through (and then the slow INHUMANE "death by attrition" that they spew and embrace). Contrary to popular opinion, do not use a head-shot. I tried that once, it took much longer for it to die. I now suspect that cats survive more by their reptilian brain-stem than any unused gray-matter that might be above it (just like cat-lickers do). I now suspect this is the origin of their 9-lives myth.

A few more of my tips and methods whereby I managed to get rid of every last one of hundreds of these invasive-species vermin in only two seasons, can be found (in Reader's Digest form) at americanhunter D0T org/blogs/arkansas-will-trap-feral-cats  The eradication so effective and complete, in dense woods and heavy underbrush, all done by myself in less than two season, that I've not seen even ONE cat in nearly FOUR YEARS now. That cat-lickers' oft-spewed "vacuum effect" myth is a LIE.

For nighttime the scented trails and IR cams worked best, for daytime the help of learning the predator calls of squirrels was best. They always alerted me to the presence of, and led me directly to some of the most wary cats of all. You must take direct relentless action against stray cats, you can't just wait for them all to show up one day or they just keep coming and coming. It's the ONLY way to stay ahead of these man-made cats' breeding rates and the rates at which criminal cat-dumpers keep letting more being born and dumped outdoors.

I also found a perfectly 100% natural solution for those who don't want to take more direct, more humane, and more effective measures (firearms and air-rifles) against free-roaming invasive species cats. Anyone who has criminally irresponsible cat-lickers in their area need only plant lilies on their properties. (Must be from the Lilium species, not just with "Lily" in the common name, see notes.) Cat-lickers always want their more responsible neighbors to grow plants around the perimeter of their properties that will repel their cats for them (from the cat-owners' own criminally negligent and criminally irresponsible behaviors and values). Well now you can brighten up your yard AND repel cats naturally! -- PERMANENTLY

(WARNING: If these plants are not native to your region don't plant these if they cannot be contained, or risk introducing yet another potentially harmful invasive species!)

Google for: lily toxicity cats

It has been reported that a cat even licking a little bit of Lily pollen from their fur will be fatal in short order. A cat even drinking some of the water in which a bunch of lilies has been kept is also fatal to them.

Everyone happy! You get to have the kinds of plants that you want, they get to have the kind of pets that they want -- if they take care of it like any responsible grown-up would. Or are cat-lickers now going to demand that you can't plant flowers on your own property? That would be their next and usual move, wouldn't it.

A perfectly natural solution to an invasive species animal that didn't evolve with Lilium species around. Plus it's a good incentive plan for cat-lickers to finally educate themselves all about ecology, native species, and evolution. :-)


Doing a little research on ASPCA's toxic plants lists (Family: Liliaceae).

Lilies (Lilium species) that are deadly toxic to cats ONLY, in even small quantities (even the pollen will do):

Common Name | Scientific Name

Asian Lily (Asiatic Lily) | Lilium asiatica

Easter Lily | Lilium longiflorum

Red Lily | Lilium umbellatum

Rubrum Lily ** | Lilium speciosum cultivar

Stargazer Lily ** |  Lilium orientalis

Tiger Lily ** | Lilium tigrinum

Wood Lily | Lilium umbellatum

(not of the Lilium species)

Orange Day Lily | Hemerocallis graminea

( ** see notes below)

Lilies (Lilium species) that may be toxic to dogs if the dog ingests enough:

NONE!


Be sure they are from the Liliacea Family, has "Lilium" on the plant label or are common N. American Day Lilies. Many plants with "Lily" in the common-name are not of the "Lilium" species, and are in fact toxic to other species of animals besides cats. Double check. On further investigation I also found out that all plant-parts, the blossoms and pollen being the most toxic, if harvested and dried (for year-round use) are just as deadly toxic to cats (if not more-so because of the unknown toxin being concentrated), and the drying makes them even more palatable to cats. What a great mulch for gardens! (Or a ground-up additive for a special outdoor can of tuna.)

** There have been some anecdotal reports of some free-roaming cats that have spent many years around some of these particular species of plants and still survived. So it is best to harvest, dry, and grind-up the plants and mix them into any appropriate bait-foods to be most effective.

I love my cat. He's the best thing ever. We found him at the shelter. That said, feral (and nonferal cats allowed to roam outdoors by ignorant owners) are an ecological disaster. Starving them is inhuman, fore sure, but neuter/spay and release programs are misguided. Most feral animals need to be euthanized (humanely) and the rest can be adopted. Why should feral cats or dogs be given priority over indigenous birds and small mammals, many of whom become endangered or threatened species as a result of predation from feral cats?

I live near a large forest and would be over run my rodents if it wasn't for the heroic efforts of my cats Rommel, Zukov, Patton and Montgomery. 

Of course they are working cats and have all been fixed but they were once feral, captured and "fixed". Now they serve a purpose and bother no one but field mice and rats.

The proper course of action regarding feral cats is:

1. Trap in wire-cage trap.

2. Check on trap regularly so trapped cat doesn't suffer from exposure or malnourishment.

3. If cat has a collar, take it to the pound for disposition.  Maybe the owner will pick it up, maybe it will get The Big Shot and move on up to the litterbox in the sky.  If the cat is a "frequent flyer," give careful consideration on moving to step 4 below.

4. If cat has no collar, dump cage with kitty into large garbage can or drum filled with water for 10 minutes or so.

5. Remove expired cat from cage and place in compost pile or trash bin.

Feral cats are a serious nuisance.  The best way to be rid of them is to punch their ticket quickly.  

If you are so unwise as to let your cat roam about outside, don't be surprised if Fluffy doesn't return one day.  Might be Fluffy went for a swim in a garbage can, but more likely she got turned into coyote poop.  And YOU, the cat's negligent owner, will be at fault for all the damage it does to songbird / small animal populations and the damage it does to your neighbors' property.  Also, for its untimely demise.

So, keep your pet cats inside, where they belong if you actually care about their well-being.

I'll bet you've not heard an owl, seen a fox, or any other native predators for years now. Your INVASIVE SPECIES cats starved them to death (just like cats used to do on my lands until I shot and buried every last one of your lousy piece-of-sh** cats from criminally irresponsible neighbors just like you). People like you should be forced to go live back in your mommy's urban basements where you can again feel safe from the real world.

To help educate these urban bambi-cartoon-educated mommy's-basement-dwellers ...

Google for: BBC - Horizon - The Science of Killing

A documentary researching the MOST humane methods to euthanize humans (for corporal punishment) or animals for food. Death by Hypoxia was found to be the MOST humane method of all. Even more humane than lethal injection. (You know, those gas-chambers used for euthanasia at animal-shelters, the method by which moron cat-lickers have made themselves even more delusional and deluded.)

 Drowning is one way to attain death by hypoxia. This is the source of the phrase "rapture of the deep" for divers. Ask any drowning survivor, after the discomfort of holding their breath it's just euphoric bliss until dead. This is why they no longer fear death after surviving a drowning.

@roo_ster I must agree.  Keep feline pets indoors.  Neuter them.  Keep a different box for each.  Do not feed them anything with additives, like Pounce, which contains certain preservatives that have been banned in human food but not pet food.  That's a disgrace.  Give them high perches and plenty of toys to play with.  Lastly, never keep more than you can handle.

I don't agree with the "dump them in a barrel of water" thing.  They can be euthanized in a more sensitive way than that.

@DeathBreath 

According to you and your demented ilk, this must be just like all those deeply disturbed serial-killers in the making that are eradicating all those other invasive-species in N. America; like Kudzu, Purple-Loosestrife, Gypsy Moths, Emerald Ash-Borers, African Cichlids, Burmese Pythons, Brown Tree Snakes, etc., from their lands and lakes. MANY of which are due to criminally negligent pet-owners who let their pets escape confinement or dumped them on purpose.

Or how about all those sickos that run animal-shelters, they're nothing but a bunch of child-murdering pedophiles because they have to euthanize animals every day. And every farmer and rancher that has to humanely put down an animal with a gun must be molesting and murdering everything in their county. Those damned sickos! And what about all those people in stockyards murdering all those cattle every day for your McBurgers? I bet they're a hide-out for all the serial-killers that nobody can find! And all those hunters that provide food for their family by hunting, I bet they're the worst of all!

And of course, the ABSOLUTELY WORST, MOST MENTALLY-ILL OF ALL -- all those people that are paying HIRED-KILLERS to murder all those BILLIONS of INNOCENT ANIMALS EVERY YEAR to then cram their tortured dead bodies into cans and bags and slap a "CAT FOOD!" label on them for you! A bunch of demented basket cases. They're probably the MOST heinous and notorious serial-killers of all! (on this one I'd agree)

I bet you're onto something!

Like your needing serious psychological help.

Paranoid psychotic much?

(You are aware, aren't you, that out of ALL types of pet-owners on the face of this earth, that cat-owners are directly responsible for the suffering deaths of more animals and more species of animals than any other type of pet-owner on the face of this earth. You are aware of this, aren't you? If not having animals killed for their own consumption, then they are having animals killed for their cat's consumption, and if they let those cats outside then they are senselessly torturing billions of native animals to death yearly just for their cats' play-toys.)

@monstruss@roo_ster 

A sociopath is someone who wishes harm on humans. I'd say, judging by posts from cat-lickers online, that about 99% of all cat-lickers are self-professed sociopaths and psychopaths. They're rather that all humans on earth die tortured deaths than any harm come to even one of their disease-infested invasive species vermin cats. I've read more ways to torture humans, that were posted by cat-lickers just like you, than I've ever read in any fictional horror novels during my lifetime.

It now makes sense why evil sadistic villains in any movie or book are always holding a cat on their lap. They're just like the true underbelly of every last cat-licker on earth.

@monstruss @roo_ster   You need to grow up some. Maybe broaden your horizons beyond the city limits.   

A semi-rural upbringing provides a bit more perspective regarding animals, their uses, and the responsibilities we have toward them.  Raising, killing, and eating a critter is an educational experience.

Feral housecats are an invasive species and have deleterious effects on the environment.  Also, if one raises chickens or other animals that are prey (or can be prey when young) feral cats are stealing food or income when they kill.  For instance, a neighbor of mine who keeps more chickens than I do and does not have a dog in the back yard to keep feral cats away has lost many of her chickens to feral cats and pet cats let out doors.  Best thing that can happen to such critters is a quick demise.

@Myrna.Minkoff-KatzAbout those evil preservatives that are okay in Pounce and other cat food- your kitty would have to subsist daily solely on it for a hundred years in order to see ay ill effects. But given the (relatively) short life spans of our companion animals, that won't ever happen. Those preservatives are needed because the meat in them is raw (especially in cat food- it can't be cooked because they need taurine.) Same goes for all those evil chemicals used in flea dips- human handlers need to wear gloves due to exposure, but the half-lifes of some of these chemicals is 50 or more years. Animals can also eat a lot of things that would make humans ill; raw meat comes to mind. So does cat poop. I don't want to eat cat poop but my sister's dogs sure love scooping the litterbox for me when we visit.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz Back when I lived outside city limits, there were lots of (soon to be) ferals dropped off by owners who did not want them (dogs and cats), but were not willing to find them new homes or euthanize them.  I did not have the time or money to take them to the vet to get them killed with a needle, rather than O2 deprivation or a .22LR. 

From my point of view, my way of cleaning up other people's messes is better than other folk's way of not doing a damn thing about it.

Oh, and a big old "+1" to your suggestions for feed, spay/neuter, and general care for pets.

Ain't no cat stink in my house.  The only toys my two cats want to play with are my eyeballs they want to rip out when I'm slow to let them outside.  They know not to play in the street, but they do roll around in the grit that accumulates along the curb.  They drop at the back door half-eaten reptiles that proliferate in my yard, as well as the occasional rat.  The day Big Boy ran inside with a mouse's tail wiggling from his mouth was one of his finest moments, embellished by the screams of my wife and daughters.  Now if I they were to chase off the raccoons that try to forage in the garbage and the opossum that lives under my deck, or piss all over the wheels of the car of my neighbor who butchers my shrubs, I would build them their own bedroom with bed to laze on during the day.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz  My cat is 40% indoor, 60% outdoor - neutered, with claws.  Doesn't hunt much, but fights off any other cat that comes near our yard.  Doesn't need a litter box because he goes outside.  Best. Cat. Evar.

While it is true that overpopulation of humans is the #1 problem that we and all other species face today (humans are a "weedy" species, but they ARE NOT an "invasive species", please educate your sorry selves); this still doesn't excuse all the responsible, wise, and intelligent people from stopping all the ecological disasters caused by those phenomenally stupid and criminally negligent people who should have never been born in the very first place. (You know, people just like you.)

Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, cats being a product of man, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any oil-spill, chemical-spill, or other environmental disaster _caused_by_man_. Cats are not exempt from being removed from every natural environment, wherever and whenever they are found away from supervised confinement. Just as you would destroy Burmese Pythons and African Cichlids in every habitat where they exist in N. America. They started out as pets too. Many of our destructive invasive species pests started out as PETS discarded by criminally-irresponsible humans. Guess what happens to all those other non-native pets that became destructive invasive species? They are destroyed on-site by any means possible -- no questions asked -- none required.

Cats are worse than a multi-continent-sized oil-spill. They not only kill off rare marine-mammals along all coastlines (just as oil-spills do) from run-off from the land carrying cats' Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they also destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey that is gutted and skinned alive for cats' tortured play-toys, up to the top predators -- starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY foods. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.) They destroy everything that moves. They will even destroy native vegetation by destroying those animals that are pollinators or act as seed dispersers for those plants (as many rodent and bird species do) or those acting as plants' pest-control. Cats can and will wipe out whole ecosystems -- animal and plant.

Cats need to disappear from all natural habitats PERMANENTLY. The sooner the better. They are breeding out of control at an exponential rate. The reason for "sooner the better" is that you can only hope you can halt the problem before it is beyond the reach of any method you eventually choose. Luckily, I caught the problem in time where I live (by humanely shooting and burying every last cat I saw, hundreds of them). It seems nobody else is faring as well. Their time is being wasted by cat-lickers stopping them from doing the right thing. Asking or listening to any deranged invasive-species advocate for advice on how to clean up the ecological disaster that they created and perpetuate is about as useful as asking your local career thieves for advice and help to hide your valuables from their daily motives and activities. Ignore anything they might say and you too will solve the problem where you live.

It worked 100% where I live!

re: Dogs

It is mandatory by law in nearly every, if not every, state of the USA to shoot any dog on sight that is seen harassing wildlife. This is why feral dog-packs are a rarity in most rural areas. They are SHOT before things get that bad.

Where I live stray dogs get a red paint-ball gun. Stings enough to teach a teachable dog and leaves a nice signal on their coat to teach the owner what could have really, and legally, happened to their dog. Though if it happens too often .... nobody is learning anything, so it has to end. Sadly.

Cats aren't so easily forgiven. From 15 years of trying to reason with useless and demented cat-lickers JUST LIKE YOU it has been proved to me, beyond any doubt in the universe, that it does absolutely no good whatsoever. (JUST like you are proving again to the world, THANKS!) So out comes the rifle on the first sighting of ANY cat.
You can tell who loves their pets in rural areas -- their pets are still alive.

Do you love your cat(s)? If someone is put in a situation where they feel it needs to be destroyed then clearly you don't give a sh** about that cat AT ALL -- and nobody else will either -- nor should they.

Learning anything?

@jamessavik

 Destroying cats is neither hating cats nor a fear of cats.

Why do mentally-unbalanced and psychotic cat-advocates always presume that if someone is removing a highly destructive, deadly disease spreading, human-engineered invasive-species from the native habitat to restore it back into natural balance that they must hate that organism? Does someone who destroys Zebra Mussels, Kudzu, African Cichlids, Burmese Pythons, Brown Tree Snakes, or any of the other myriad destructive invasive-species have some personal problem with that species? (Many of which are escaped PETS that don't even spread any harmful diseases, unlike cats.) Your ignorance and blatant biases are revealed in your declaring that people who destroy cats must somehow hate or fear cats. Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is people who let a destructive invasive-species roam free that tortures-to-death all other wildlife, wasted for their cats' play-toys, that have zero respect for ALL life. They don't even care about their cats dying a slow torturous death from exposure, animal attacks, diseases, starvation, dehydration, becoming road-kill, environmental poisons, etc., the way that ALL stray cats suffer to death. They don't even respect their fellow human being. This speaks more than volumes about your disgusting character. People like you should be locked up in prison for life for your cruelty to all animals, cruelty to your own cats as well as all the native wildlife that you let your cats skin alive or disembowel alive for their and your entertainment. If you let cats roam free you are violating every animal-abandonment, animal-neglect, animal-endangerment, and invasive-species law in existence.

If people do hate cats today, have LEARNED to hate cats today, you have nobody but yourself and everyone just like you to blame. YOU are the reason people are now realizing that all excess cats must be destroyed on-site and on-sight. You've done so much to make people care about cats, haven't you. If you want to do something about it, direct your sadly and sorely misplaced energies at those that are causing the problem, not at those who are actually solving it AND HAVE SOLVED IT 100%.

THIS IS YOUR FAULT and THE FAULT OF EVERYONE JUST LIKE YOU. You have NOBODY but yourselves to blame.

You can take that all the way to the very last  shot-dead cat's grave.

@Nature_Advocate @FEDUP The hallmark of every cat hater that I've ever met is that they are so insecure that they can't take a cats independence. They need to be licked in the face by ass licking dogs so their tiny egos are constantly supported by slobber and feces.

The hallmark of every last cat-licker on earth -- they are also a self-professed sociopath/psychopath. They would much rather have any humans die than any of their disease-infested vermin cats.

In case you are curious -- the term that I use of "cat licker" is justifiably and accurately gleaned from the growing fad of people who are obsessed with cats and want to do everything possible to make their cats feel good, as naturally as possible, at the expense of all that is reasonable and sane.

They are now licking their cats clean.

Since they see a cat fighting back from being washed in water as animal abuse, but the cat not fighting if they use their tongues, they use their tongues instead to wash their cats.

It's just another one of the many aberrant and mentally-ill behaviors of "cat lickers".

I cannot, in all good conscience and honesty, EVER use the term "cat lover" again to describe these heartless and spineless cretins. People who love cats do not throw them under the wheels of moving cars, let them lap-up antifreeze in a gutter, force them to attack one another to fight for territory (no different than people who run dog-fight rings and are just as criminal of animal abuse), or let them be attacked by other animals by letting them roam free. "Cat Lover" is an extremely oxymoronic label. "Cat Licker" is the only one that accurately works today.

@casiepierce @observist @DeathBreath  Well, I'm sorry to disagree with you, but weapon possession is one of the diagnostic criteria associated with establishing a diagnosis for APD.  Aggression to people and animals

  • often bullies, threatens, or intimidates others

  • often initiates physical fights

  • has used a weapon that can cause serious physical harm to others (e.g., a bat, brick, broken bottle, knife, gun)

  • has been physically cruel to people

  • has been physically cruel to animals

  • has stolen while confronting a victim (e.g., mugging, purse snatching, extortion, armed robbery)

  • has forced someone into sexual activity

@observist @DeathBreath  There is a hysterical account of this event in the biography of Michael o'Donoghue (hint, he was the writer from National Lampoon who had two tours of SNL, back when it was funny and edgy).  Reportedly, the cats were pretty angry.  They drew a lot of blood that day.

@observist @DeathBreath Yeah, a bit.  My tongue was firmly planted in my cheek, LOL.  Truthfully, I can't stand most cats.  It is not because I'm highly allergic to them either.  They get on my nerves.  I've taken them swimming before.  They don't like water.  But, that was many years ago.  Yes, I also met the diagnostic criteria for conduct disorder & antisocial personality disorder.  Mine is in remission.  LOL.  It takes a psychopath to recognize one in treatment.
