    I like the cold season, and not just because it feels good but the doves migrate here.[​IMG] But, i was just outside and there are sometimes lil feathers that birds shed and i saw 1 or 2 and then i looked back and it was where a dove got killed. :'( [​IMG]the cats have killed the third or fourth dove now.

    Also i think it was my dove, he/she used to come here and eat and i caught it once.

    Thats it, i havent seen it for a while...
    But, one mornin my sister said that one of the cats ran up a tree and grabbed a dove, but then it got loose and flew away.[​IMG] At least one saved from the claws.

    i do love the cats and i also love the doves. idk...[​IMG] but i do think that we shood get rid of them... or at least some, but i coodnt say Bye, any comments??

    get rid of the cats, as they are the worst thing for the environment, as just kill for fun constant from wake to sleep, as ignorant people feed them beliving its kind to do so, but not realizing they are arid savanna, and desert animals from harshest parts of africa, that destroy other ecosystems with killing for sport out of instinct cause so much energy but not hungry from feeding and housing from humans, and relieving in garden soil preferably and above ground water tables, and carry rabies and many other diseases that rival types and quantities of native racoons, or especially any other small mammals similar, and spread them with resistances to but roam and fighting with these other unfortunate animals, and humans even.

    all the better reason to help them that cannot help themselves. ive worked in veteranary fields ect for years, and seen cats dying of disease and starvation, cause so many people think its kind to feed them and let them survive just decent enough to raise those adorable little kittens, that then grow up make kittens then they all depend on more food to not go hungry and sick in environments not made for them to do so in such huge numbers healthily. my boss always told me "if it ever gets any easier to see or deal with, your in the wrong business". its not that i hate cats, its that i hate how people dont see the suffering behind those pretty kitties (also my family are cat hoarders, so still see so much personal problems with cat colonies). people sadly we cant do anything about, but cats can be live trapped and taken to humane society or places that at least sterilize them to be re released, or if in bad shape, humanely put down, or if able, found homes for some.
