My Blog today is a response to the article below:

Yes, Cats (Dogs and other animals) kill birds and other small prey. But Cats, Dogs and other members of The Animal Kingdom are nowhere as lethal and vicious as is the human animal. We like to quote numbers of birds culled by cats but forget to tell how many birds are culled by humans though various means like slaughter, hunting, creation of dangerous environments, etc.

Cats are amateur bird killers. They are not in the league of we humans when it comes to killing birds and every other species on the planet — including our own!

For a detailed list of harm to birds by Humans and Cats, go to
"Requiem for an American Kestrel"

~ Birds & Bats killed by Wind Energy Turbines:

~ Psychopaths
How many Cats, Dogs, Frogs, other species have been tortured and killed Psychopaths (future serial killers)? We don’t even know . But we do know Cats are targets of Psychopaths. In Canada, normal human beings (we respect life) were extremely upset and outraged with the murder of Jun Lin. His killer first killed baby kittens and also taped a cat to a stick and drowned it in his bathtub. I do not say his name because serial animal killers and serial human killers are not human and do not deserve to have their name spoken. So, I mention the victim who is and was human, Jun Lin who lived with his beloved tabby cat. I will remember Jun Lin, 33, from China, studying in Montreal, Qc, Canada where I live.

FBI: Definition of a Serial Murderer:

American Humane Organization fact sheet/animal abusers:

Click link to see the number of living creatures humans kill per year for food:

Human killing of all species:
It is us, the self-named “intelligent” species of the Animal Kingdom who kill not only our own species [famous examples are of tribal wars, the Holocaust, the Spanish Inquisition and slaughter of First Nations Peoples of the Americas, the Slave Trade of Black peoples from Africa to name “modern” events] but all species!

When it comes to killing, we are in a class of our own; and we do not discriminate between our own or other species.

We are an abomination. Genocides from 1900 to 2000:

The recorded numbers of intentionally slaughtered humans does not include humans killing other humans before recorded history. We don’t know what other genocides occurred as not all events have been committed to history.

In Judaic-Christian teaching human killing human began when Cain killed his brother, Abel. So, let’s get this straight now: Adam & Eve are the first people who had Cain and Abel. Cain murdered Abel which left Cain, Eve and Adam. There was, apparently, a commandment from our creator to Be fruitful and multiply. Abel is dead. Survivors are two males, one female on planet Earth. Female and the younger male are mother and son, so, how did the rest of us get here? Got into big trouble in High School asking that question If Creationism theory is fact, then at one point there must have been incestual sexual relationships — which would explain why we are such a murderous species.

Back to Cats and Birds: We have four felines, all rescues. The Baby is 10 month-old Raven who was born in our home. His brother, Licorice and mother, Ivory have adopted very fine humans. I get to visit both Ivory and Licorice which is wonderful indeed.

As my darlings are male rescues, you can be sure they have been neutered, inoculated, and that what their Veterinarian recommends for good health, happiness and a long strictly indoor life is done by us. They are my darlings: Norman, now 17 ½; Felix 7 ½ ; (Baby) Rascal 4 and Raven who will be a year old on August 5th 2012. I have blogged about my cats and will tell Ivory & the Kittens’ story in another blog.

If domestic cats kill birds, blame the persons who do not keep them indoors. The human caretaker is responsible for the behavior of their cats, dogs, pets.
