Considering my objection was towards abandoning adult pets, and mentioned euthanasia only as an alternative towards releasing house animals into the wild... practising my ideals towards your "family" would consist of rescuing them from the streets and feeding, housing, and loving them. Yup, pure evil colonialism over here.

I now propose we convert this thread into pet pics. Because let's face it. What else is the internet really for?

Here's one of my "slaves" going through obviously undue hardship.

Yes. The arduous challenge of spending the evening curled up on Auto's lap, soliciting pets and chin rubs, and licking our ice cream bowls clean. Oh, her life is so hard.

Patches, stealing my blanket while keeping me company on a sick day:


Baby (otherwise known as Bubba), showing off his fangs during a belleh rub:


He's the puker, but I love him anyway.

How does one put a picture in a post? I have been unable to figure it out.

I went to my profile and added a public album, then uploaded the pics. Clicking on them once they're uploaded gives you a couple of links you can paste into your post.

Or, you can upload them to a different site and surround the link with IMG tags.

Well someone got the memo about my dysfunctional "Awww" feline fetish. I'm in kitty heaven here. The only drawback is I'm a-worried Rainee'll notice me swooning over these *other cat* pics and get all jealous and shiz. (Technically not a problem since housecats are renowned for their "convey desire for -- no, *demand* one's desired attention, and damn well get it!" talent.)

Ohhh the maltreatment ... the suffering ... the emptiness where "free from the shackles of arrogant humans and all their ugly artificial consumerist technology" should be. It's all so ... painfully obvious in these pics ...

But I'll admit, part of the perception problem here may be that cats are so darn good at "taking life as it comes, lovin' *all* the little pleasures, etc."

Awww ... a "belleh rub" ... a walk through the kitty's magic angel hair ...

I've figured out Bubba's prob: He gets so into this ecstasy thing that it actually turns painful ("oh hurt me hurt me") and he's just *gotta* puke it all out.

BWAHAHAHA! Love it.
Nah, he just eats too fast. The oaf.

He'll eat his food, then try to intimidate Patches away from HER food (so I get to play cop for a while), then when she's done, he finishes her food, then paces between plates in order to clean up any remaining food molecules that aren't chemically bonded to the plate.

Then, sometimes, he just horks it up and wants to start the process all over again.

Yesterday, he hit the couch, the rug, AND the floor (at the edge of the rug). He's lucky he's so damned cute.

Which reminds me of the day I was watching "Nature" on PBS - something about bird migrations with lots of pretty pictures.

Both cats, I shit you not, were ENTRANCED by the TV. It was hysterical.
I remember reading once somewhere that dogs and cats had a tough time seeing the pictures on old CRT televisions due to the frame rate (think "squigglevision" back in the days of scrambled cable). Now with LCD and plasma TVs, they don't have this problem.

Not sure how true this is, but I have never seen cats riveted to the TV before. Luckily, they didn't hurl themselves at it in a hunting frenzy.
