5 ways people cut bits off cats to ‘improve’ them — 2 Comments

  1. Divorced from nature is right on. I’ve been at odds with many neighbors on the Nextdoor social network online app about our urban animal friends like opossums, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, etc. People are especially ignorant about opossums and are always too ready to consider any animal that isn’t their pet to be a pest that needs to be eradicated. That and cutting them up, playing god like that is the epitome of what a god wouldn’t do, in my opinion.

  2. Thank you again Michael for unexpectedly validating me once again, in another surprisingly significant way too. About “the wrong ear”: I’d brought this up to “my friends” in the cat services culture out here in Ventura county and was immediately shot down in knee-jerk fashion even though I was right and made sense. I ASKED why they were not consistent with the industry standard of tipping the left ear, but because they’d been so keen on shooting down all my questions and comments (due to two belligerent attitudes they have against me for A. not being on board with them regarding their pit bull proliferation mission, and B. because I’m a man apparently infiltrating their girls’ club. Seriously, I was not welcome and after 7 months of snide comments, put downs and outright hostility for no other reason than those, I had no choice but to think that. They’d say one thing then do another; then do one thing then say another, their only consistency being to make me feel unwelcome. So, they had no answer to why they kept tipping the right ears except to either say it doesn’t matter, or it’s supposed to be the right one. Lots of annoying things like that, but I finally left because of their treatment, or failure to treat a crippled cat I brought to their attention that because I wanted to help it, they didn’t; it was that simple. As I write this though, the Humane Society is investigating it. I’ll let you know how that works out.
