    Some strange looking cats amongst that lot Nick.

  • Not quite enough said. I’ll finish it off.

    A good cat is a dead cat. Every. Single. One. Cats cannot be controlled in any environment, urban or rural. They are pests, they should be eradicated.

    If you dislike this statement, find someone who gives a shit. Tell them about it. Stomp your feet, spit, curse, make a voodoo doll of me, poke it with pins, have a cry, start a facebook page, couldn’t give a shit. Cats are pests.

      You forgot, they’re cute, cuddly and good for fuck-all.

      Never heard of the pied piper Travis? Yes they kill indiscriminately but you rid the country of rats, mice, rabbits and I might be on your side. I know the amount of vermin that lives in a rural environment, you want to see what rats can do to a tonne of calf meal. You can’t turn back time and live before pests but maybe you should read the nursery rhyme” there was an old lady who swallowed a spider” the outcome would be the same in the real world.

        Remember when Mao declared that sparrows were vermin and should be wiped out?

      • The impact on the rat/mouse population that cats have is a bit of a myth that cat owners would have us believe. Nothin’ a bucket of poison can’t do. And you don’t have to feed a bucket of poison. Or clean up it’s shit/piss. Or let it outside. As for the rabbits, erm…yea right. The occasional rabbit maybe. Yes I know what rats can do, I’ve seen them 5am first thing in the morning in the cowshed walking between the cows legs to get the meal/grain and molasses when it starts feeding through the system at milking time. Also one farmer that I worked for used to work for in Bill English country used to keep his Tux dog biscuits (the big triangle ones) in an old shed by the tractor shed, they were disappearing way faster than what he was feeding them to the dogs. he pulled a few boards off the inside of the shed walls, and they were packed with dog biscuits. the cats there failed to keep them under control. Doesn’t change shit as far as my opinion as cats go. Stop making up bullshit myths on what a great job cats do. They don’t do fuck all. They are indiscriminate killers. They don’t differentiate between native birds and vermin.

        So with respect, take your nursery rhymes and stuck ’em up your arse :)

          Couldn’t put it better myself. Dogs look up to man, cats look down on him, but pigs well they treat him as an equal. Come in Lesley…

          • Pigs are great, nothin’ like an even fight :) More than even I’d say actually, man needs dogs to even it up. Pigs more than hold their own. I’m coming back in the next life as a boar with big motherfuckin’ tusks. Make sure your dogs are covered in canvas and rip collars :)

          • RightOfGenghis

            He’s probably your tupuna Travis. The domestic pig is a mix of wart-hog and human dna. In other words if you crossed a warthog and human it would pretty much looked like a domestic pig. Humans can take organ donations from pigs not apes

          • I don’t have “tupuna” bro. You’ll need to speak English for me to comprehend. But I get your drift. Will be a good day when a cure for type 1 diabetes is achieved completely, successfully. I’m not sure how compatible warthogs are,but Tim Shadbolt has ensured there is a clean strain of disease free pigs to research on for diabetes on the Auckland Islands.

      Yup, some of Europe during the Middle Ages had your weird, psycho, anti-feline opinion, Travis. It seems that eradicating cats can have perceptible consequences…

      From Wikipedia (

      “Cats were often considered in league with the Devil, and cats were killed en masse in the middle of the 14th century during the time of the Black Death.
      Had this bias toward cats not existed, local rodent populations could
      have been kept down, lessening the spread of plague-infected fleas from
      host to host.”

      • None of that was relevant. Or similar. Nice touch adding “weird” and “psycho” to try and ramp up the weight behind your comment.

        Hell hath no fury like a cat owner scorned :)

      • RightOfGenghis

        In my experience most pussies won’t stand and fight a mean tempered bush rat. A dog on the other hand, de rigeur…

      “Stomp your feet, spit, curse, make a voodoo doll of me, poke it with pins,”

      Okey, dokey, Travis. I was wondering what to do with my Saturday morning. :-)

      • Fishing for cat lovers is a good way to spend Saturday morning. Must be feeding time, they’re all biting good today :)

        • dyannt

          More than happy to oblige. I’ve been planting veges in the garden – now just waiting for the cats to dig them up.

  • Nick, if you no longer want to work here, just say so. No need to use the nuclear option.

  • Allan

    that last one has to be the best, sort of thing any little brother would do (or actually big brother now that I think about it)
