I really am sorry in advanced if this offends anyone. It must be said. You remember those cute baby doves that we discovered and watched hatch and begin to grow up? http://desertbrains.blogspot.com/2008/05/new-life.html well they are no more.
I am so mad, this is my yard, we built and landscaped our yard to attract birds, and lizards specifically because we enjoy them, and then some neighborhood cat comes prowling around MY YARD and ate my birds. MY BABY BIRDS. Outside the fact that it was sad to see the nest empty we just didn't know what happened, then my son came to us this morning with a dove foot in his hand and tears in his eyes. I am so mad.
I want to know this, and I may offend some, but why is it okay for cats, pet cats, to be loose? They poop in my yard, pee in my car and on my porch and poop in our kids sand box next door to our house. Not too long ago I accidentally left my car window down, I mean really! a cat peed or sprayed and as we were going to church I sat in it!!!! We were for a while experiencing toddlers picking the cat poop up and putting it in their mouths. Keep you cats indoors. What is the problem, they cry? then don't have a cat. I am so upset. If my little dog were running around pooping all over the place, peeing on others cars and destroying others property someone would sue me I am sure, but it is okay for cats. I don't get it.
