Why Do Vicious Killers Make Good Pets?

  • Published: 08 September 2017
  • Cats are considered an invasive species and kill literally billions of birds and small mammals each year. But they're so cute and cuddly! Could there be some sort of connection between their predatory nature and their lovableness?

                Why do vicious killers make good pets?

                Because herbivores are losers (ever see a vegan?) and no one wants to be friends with a loser.

                    my cat stitch was very feral for many years before I forced her into my house in below zero Oklahoman winter and she is now the cuddliest cat in my house. I will call her a "cuddly murderer" forever now.

                                  Cats are not vicious killers! Dogs are more killers! If any of you gonna get pissed at me and troll me I don’t give a damn what you’re problem is!

                                      Wait, the chart says there are 94 million pet cats in the US, but Nature says they kill up to 3 billion birds and 22 billion mammals?? That means every cat kills about 265 animals a year! Sure, there are lots of stray/feral cats too, but still, those numbers don't add up.

                                        I personally wonder why anyone ever bothers to have a cat in the first place. They're only good for mousing, and they simply are not as good as dogs for most things, and they aren't even as affectionate or even care what their names are. Worse, they spread disease. You know those puffy scratches they give you? That's an infection, and its just for starters. They hunt for fun, instead of food, to the point where they wipe out wildlife entirely.
                                        How sad, people breed cats for just appearance, not for behavior. That means they SUCK as pets!

                                          Cats are assholes that inflict pain and suffering on other animals...

                                          Which is why women love them so much.

                                            I adore my Cecilia because she's a little hunter. She's so regal and elegant... Okay except that time she tried to leap after a toy and ran into the table. But I love having a mini-panther in my house. Cats are so unique and wonderful- they have such varied personalities and each is awesome in their own way.

                                                  Cats eat birds? My cat actually is terrified of them...

                                                  And he's a Mama's boy.... he loves my mother.....

                                                  But due to the scratches on everyone because of his hyperness as a fat kitten, I can confirm he is a "killer". And he also thinks he's a dog-

Except of course they're like little aliens so their concept of a family is a little different, they're more individualized. But it's still family, as far as that goes. They love us as much as their cute little limbic brain allows:)

It ends up by that logic that we pay hit men to kill cows so we can eat them. Im guilty! Not mention the concentration camps we keep them in before the hit.

I believe a few more animals are part of this evolutionary social club too, such as horses, mules, and certain herd species.
