I was out at my mothers place today helping clean up around there for her appraisal . She had mentioned quite a few times a bout a stray cat that was going on her property , getting in fights with her cats , eating all of the food left out and not letting her cats eat . I was just about to leave when we hear a cat howling in the pasture....sure enough ....here comes the stray cat . I immediately grabbed my old 270 I gave to my mom and loaded it . It was pretty hard to look through the scope at that beautifull cat ( he was not nuetered ) and pull the trigger , but I did . At least her 3 cats will be able to sleep and eat now . Just thought it was pretty crappy that some people either dropped the cat off on the mountain , or owned it , just to wander around and not take care of it . I love cats and have never shot one in my life.....so I guess I'm feeling a little guilty , even though I know it was the right desicion .
