Why Do Vicious Killers Make Good Pets?

  • Published: 08 September 2017
  • Cats are considered an invasive species and kill literally billions of birds and small mammals each year. But they're so cute and cuddly! Could there be some sort of connection between their predatory nature and their lovableness?

      Humans like to kill. Dogs and cats like to kill. Dogs and cats are little fluffy things like us! Thats why we love them so much!

        They're literally no more or less vicious than the average human being, so it's ironic that we try to pin them to be so. Humans are FAR more vicious, we just don't "appear" to be so to each other, at least within the thin veneer of civil society. Much in the same way a cat appears cute.

        No, they probably wouldn't murder you given the opportunity, number one because they recognize us as equal apex predators, and number 2, most of us eat meat. Which tastes terrible to them.

        Also, Most humans will resort to cannibalism if the conditions are right. I bet If human flesh was tasty to us, we would each other! En masse! Food for thought.

            I like cats because dogs are too easy. A cat is almost like a person. Sometimes they just want to be left alone. And sometimes they just cant be left alone.

              They re as hard as Dark Souls

                  We are only here to open cans!! Lol 😆. Cats are so intelligent, and my cats continually keep me entertained! My current kitty keeps bringing me a “fake toy mouse” every night, from the second floor of my house, to the mat near the outside door. Bonita 🐱obviously thinks I am a bad hunter. 😎😆

                              Few people know this but hey....this seems like the appropriate venue, so I’ll spill it.

                              In certain circles, it’s well known that cats are actually an alien species sent down to manipulate and lull us into a sense of security so they can ultimately enact a “war of the worlds” scenario where they ride around on HUGE, steampunk robots, enslaving the planet...arMEOWgeddon (or the aPURRcalypse if you wanna be an asshole about it). They’ll probably allow us to live but we’ll almost certainly be relegated to litter duty...also belly rubs.

                                  if you don wank a killer as a pat I suggest you don't have one.
                                  Every animal on this planet has to kill other living beings to survive. This is how life works. Or do you think that you Mc Donalds was made by asking the cow to give a piece of is meat as a favor?
                                  Or, idk, have a plant as a pet, it can live only on water and sunlight.

                                          People like to stamp cat as killer
                                          yet they never even attack human out of no where
                                          but dog? 🙄🙄🙄
                                          some of them will bark and chase and bite human when we do nothing.
                                          People died because of dog yet many insists dog is better than cat 🙄

                                              the question should be "do vicious killers make good pet owners". i never saw a cat drop no atom bomb on a large population center.

                                                  its really about food... you make a friend when you feed someone... i seen where police try get someone to talk by feeding them...when you feed people at parties everyone is sociable... you feed a stray cat enough it will become your friend ..knowing you are source of food then this makes them your pet...if you stop feeding your pet .. your pet will soon leave

That means every cat kills about 265 animals a year! Sure, there are lots of stray/feral cats too, but still, those numbers don't add up.

                                                                                  I personally wonder why anyone ever bothers to have a cat in the first place. They're only good for mousing, and they simply are not as good as dogs for most things, and they aren't even as affectionate or even care what their names are. Worse, they spread disease. You know those puffy scratches they give you? That's an infection, and its just for starters. They hunt for fun, instead of food, to the point where they wipe out wildlife entirely.
                                                                                  How sad, people breed cats for just appearance, not for behavior. That means they SUCK as pets!

Okay except that time she tried to leap after a toy and ran into the table. But I love having a mini-panther in my house. Cats are so unique and wonderful- they have such varied personalities and each is awesome in their own way.
