    Re: Cats and dogs...


    So, you think "cat ladies" are crazy? The crazy lady (with a strong Irish accent) across the street found a dead bird in her yard early one morning, picked it up on a piece of cardboard, walked across the street, and dumped it in our yard. All the little old ladies in our neighborhood hate each other so she got dimed out.

    When I asked her why, the summary was:
    • I like birds.
    • Cats kill birds, so I hate cats.
    • You have a cat.
    • Even though it wasn't your cat who killed the bird (cause of death unknown) I don't want dead birds in my yard.

    ...Only it took five minutes and was accompanied by much hand waving....

    You have crazy neighbors. The tree lady takes it though.

    I'd be heaping all kinds of carcass on her yard in the night, walking the streets looking for roadkill. Set up little rodent crime scenes, chalk outlines and all....

    Re: Cats and dogs...

    Im pretty positive I said it before in this thread, but my dad always said "ive never see a cat skeleton in a tree"

    Cat looks pretty happy up there, I know he has been up there 9 days before, but I think its time to leave him up there till he comes down.

    Maybe this is just me, but that lady would have hit with a fastball (fastbird?) down the middle if she dumped that on my lawn. I don't care what your reasons are or if you're batshit crazy, if you take something dead from your lawn and try to dispose of it in someone else's, you deserve a slap upside the head with said carcass.

    If the cat dies in the tree, doesn't seem like it'd take much for it to fall to the ground. Maybe you never see the skeleton in the tree because it's always at the base.

    Fun fact: Cats have a terminal velocity about half that of man's (~60mph). Combined with their ability to orient themselves, and absorb impact, they are able to survive extremely long falls. Cat survives 19 story fall (200ft)

    Fair enough. Back to laser pointers, perhaps attached to the aforementioned 12ga.

    Fun fact:

    In a study performed in 1987 it was reported that cats who fall from less than six stories, and are still alive, have greater injuries than cats who fall from higher than six stories

    What if that would do no good whatsoever? My wife just put it in the trash. Sometimes you have to take the high road.....

    I hold no illusions that following my advice would do nothing but escalate the situation. I simply described how I would react. I am a nothing if not a fantastic bad example.

    Funny you mention that. I sailed to Antarctica a while back with Greg Marshall where he slapped his crittercam on humpback whales.
