What would the haters do if there were no cats to hate? This is a good question. It is an excellent question. Marc asked it. It implies that the people who hate cats use the cat as some sort of receptacle or target for their hate and anger.

The cat is an easy, ready-made target for messed up individuals who have an unstoppable need to release their anger and hatred of the world at something, anything. The cat is just there, in front of them, on the road, wandering around, in the sights of their .22 rifle. You name the circumstances, the cat is a ready-made target for a messed up person to release some of that anger. It need not be the cat. The cat is just a convenient target. The roaming cat is easy to kill for a nasty person in a pick-up truck with pain-in-the-ass rifle.

The best word is “receptacle” because the anger inside these nasty, stupid people is transferred to the cat, the cat they injure and kill. It is like self-harming without the self harm. Killing cats releases anger and the uncomfortable emotions these damaged people feel.

This is what I think Marc is hinting at. If I am incorrect then please tell me. Actually, in his own words, it is what he is more or less saying. This is part of his superb comment:

My question is this; what would the haters do if there were no cats to hate?

I know the answer.

They would hate something else just as helpless and intrinsic to life on earth. Cat’s a great to hate for hunters and animal abusers and people who feel empowered by taking a life, who enjoy killing and would rather kill than shoot a target. It rationalizes their hateful actions in the most morally deplorable ways possible.

If humans who spend so much time being angry and hating could be less accepting of how terrible it feels we’d be ok, but sadly there are many people who actually are willing to endure those feelings permanently, either out of righteousness or inability to love. The only thing that makes these people smile is when they laugh, and their laughter is either cynical or at the expense of another. They feed off failure and not success. We’ve all hated and been in this state but most of us can’t stand to be there for more than a few seconds because ultimately we see the result of staying would be that we’d hate ourselves for being like that…..

I don’t need say any more. Marc has said it. You can read his full comment by clicking on this link. It is an article all on its own and it deserves to be digested.

In conclusion, cat haters are people who, in a strict sense, have mental health problems. That may sound a bit extreme but it is essentially correct because they are killing animals that we put on the planet. They are our responsibility. These people are a symptom of the major aspect of what is wrong on the planet  – people and their messed up mentality.

  1. We had cat haters move right next door at our old home and this is why we moved in a great hurry leaving our home we owned to rent this house here.
    If we hadn’t got away I would have been serving a life sentence for murder, no kidding, the hatred I felt for those people made me dangerous because if one of our cats had been hurt by them I’d have turned into a savage.
    But I had it in perspective, I hated them, no one else.
    When we’d gone they continued to terrorise and bully other neighbours, so it seems cat haters just turn their hatred to others if there are no cats to pick on. Even a woman they were very pally with had a huge argument after we left which proves to me that cat haters are unreasonable unhinged people full of hatred which spills out on anyone they can find.

    • I couldn’t agree more Ruth I feel exactly the same as you I feel a sort of anger welling up inside me and I know that if anyone hurt one of my cats I would probably start hitting them and not want to stop 🙁 You see in my book there is no reason to hurt an animal; any animal. I hate spiders but I won’t kill one I’ll trap them under a glass and put them out.

      • Me too. If someone hurt my cat I don’t think I would be able to control myself. I’d probably end up in jail which is a bit scary. I hope no one hurts my cat.

  2. I’ve not met any true cat haters which Im happy about frankly because if I did I really would not be responsible for my actions. I think if there were no cats the cat haters would just move onto another easy target. People who enjoy inflicting pain on animals are damn scary and should be watched closely.

    • Me too – I’d be in danger if I came accross a cat hater through lack of control over my own actions.

      The other day a group of people were having a conversation, I was part of it, one person was talking about somebody they knew and dropped the fact that the person was a hunter of sorts. I blurted out uncontrollably “That’s disgusting, hunting I mean” – suprisingly everybody just kind of stopped and then seemed to agree or accept it. I think alot of people who would agree just don’t bother thinking about it. It’s important to interupt and say what you think about such things.

      Michael – sorryI was busy for a whole week now and didn’t see this article with my comment in it, I’m back now though 🙂

      • Nice to have you back. Never worry about being away. We know you’ll come back 😉 And I understand the work pressures.

        I am sure a lot of people hate me for loving cats and animals. There is a cultural divide between people who care about animals and those who want to use animals or don’t think about it.
