Rebutting The Ailurophobe — 17 Comments

  1. See, this is the exact kind of thinking you get when a parasitic worm has invaded your brain and is telling you what you should believe and think. You can’t even tell when your own brains are this badly damaged. Guess how T. gondii gets in all your dinner meats? How much you just love to evade that issue too. LOL

    • Woody, I have quoted science and first hand experience. Have you even considered the possibility that you have toxoplasmosis? Your irrational behavior indicates it. Of course, I don’t believe all this hype about toxo (it has not be proved) but you do so perhaps this is karma again 😉 What do you say Woody?,

      • I say you should tell everyone how Toxoplasma gondii gets onto your dinner tables through vegetables and meats. Neither of those two forms of food can contract T. gondii IN ANY OTHER WAY than directly from cat-shat Toxoplasma gondii oocysts.

          • He never will, Michael. He runs like a little girl in the face of confrontation.
            He never has a followup to support any of his rants.

          • Wow, you don’t even know how the 2-stage life-cycle of T. gondii works. Nor do you have even a rudimentary knowledge of herbivores and carnivores. LOL Figured as much. Without even that much knowledge (attainable by anyone who might have graduated from grammar-school) there is nothing that I can state that you will be able to comprehend. Maybe it’s not just T. gondii parasites that have hijacked your brain, maybe it’s just plain ignorance and an amazing and phenomenal amount of stupidity on your part.

            • You have still failed (as usual) to answer my straightforward question. Even a couple of lines would be enough. But no…you prefer in typical arrogant and aggressive style to insult me. You are such an unpleasant person.

          • Thanks Serbella. I won’t let him insult anyone. I just could not resist asking him a question in response to his comment.

            • I understand, Michael. Aww, I was going to enjoy playing with him, but you’re right. Enough is enough.

  2. Cats are as different as humans are. We each have things in common with our species, but we are so affected by inherited traits, disabilities, environment, nurturing or lack of, and nutrition.

    Some cats are more affectionate than others. Some are more aware of our absence.

    I tamed a feral cat in Hawaii with food and patience. He was a typical looking striped orange tabby, and had a habit of biting my ankles. So I named him KitBit. The bites weren’t hard, but habitual.

    He came in the house sometimes, but mostly he lived outside. My roommate had a motorcycle, and we used to go on rides frequently. As soon as we pulled in, KitBit came running to us, even before we got off the bike. He wasn’t frightened of the noise, which seemed odd. We were always amazed that he came running from wherever he was.

    I’ve had many cats, but none seemed so happy to see me.

    Another cat I had would sit on my lap whenever I sat down. Since I spent a lot of time on the computer, she
    was on my lap a lot. If I had to get up, she would wait until I sat down again, and jump back up.

    She was a real lover, and seemed to enjoy people. I had women’s gatherings at my house, and we sat in in circle. She went around the circle and greeted each woman. Even those who didn’t like cats, liked Peaches.

    She talked a lot too. She used to sit on the fence and talk to the dog next door. She really seemed to enjoy socializing. Her sibling was just the opposite. Very timid and quiet. She rarely meowed, and when she did it was very soft.

    I raised them together as kittens. Neither suffered any trauma, and were well cared for. So, the difference was in their personalities. The same variable we see in families.

    I think that people who have preconceived notions about cats, for whatever reason, aren’t going to change. I don’t hear about dog haters, although they too are abused.

    Maybe people respond to being needed, and dogs fulfill that. Also, dogs can be controlled more than cats, and that can be another factor that attracts people. I like both, but at this stage of my life, I don’t really want to the responsibility of a dog. It’s a lot more work that I care to take on.

    I love the fact that my cat is independent and affectionate. It reflects my own personality!

    • Nice comment. Excellent. I failed to mention that love and affection is a two-way street. If a cat is not showing affection the person might be advised to look at herself and ask what she can do.

  3. I usually have way too much fun with those people. It’s easy to confuse the poor dears with facts. And the ones like Woody, who cry and moan about cats preying on wild birds, well, all I have to do is pull out some well documented facts on how filthy wild birds really are, and all the diseases humans get from them and their droppings. The argument is usually over by then.


    That’s just for starters. When I googled that subject I also saw articles on how germy pet birds are. The big difference between me and the really extreme haters is that I’m not advocating killing off wild birds. The fact that some moron like Woody wants to exterminate cats just proves how insane they really are.

    • You are right on the money, Serbella! Said so perfectly.
      I so love messing with idiots like Jimbo/Woody.

      • Thank you, Dee! I see Woody has a new alias below, so I posted a reply with some of links how wild droppings get into our crops and water. I seriously doubt he’ll answer back, but if he does, I’ll either get bored quickly or decide it’s playtime. He’s so much fun to play with.
