Not ALL cat owners are so irresponsible. My cat stays in and isn't allowed to roam the neighborhood looking for prey and places to crap.

When was the last time you heard of a cat attacking a small child and leaving them with horrific injuries...






my mates lil lad ross came so close to loosing his eye from a cat scratch...... 3 surgeries later they managed to save it.......... all cats should be drown at birth

I've worked with people who killed other people..on the basis of that attitude all humans should be drowned at birth too. Pointless generalisations get no one anywhere.

Blooming Potholes in the road  :tantrum:  I pay my taxes so why is the surface of the moon in better condition than the rotten roads round here. Already had a front spring snap so far this year. How motor cyclists and those on push bikes get on I just don't know.

Enough with the poor patching, lets have some re-surfaced roads!

As someone who drives for a living, I sympathise, Bossco! Getting a bit fed up with trying not to bounce my passengers around too much on the roads in my area.

they are fine for mountain bikes as we can jump over them. stop city centre cycling for being too boring (that and jumping off steps/low walls)

Only one thing that really annoys me:

People who have no consideration for others (and that's a LOT of people).

Unfortunately you can pin an awful lot of bad stuff on these people.  Wars, crime, fraudulent expenses claims... the list goes on.

Agree with that.

Currently, parasites.  I like all kinds of normal and 'weird' animals (especially spiders...) but parasites get the short end of the stick.  Heebie-jeebies.
I admit my pets don't get routine treatments as often as recommended, but I got the cat wormed a couple of weeks ago. (You don't want to know how I discovered it had worms. :sick: )  Yesterday I found a bunch of fleas clinging round it's ears.  Skin crawls and paranoia goes into overdrive.  How long's it had fleas?  It gets let in pretty regularly - how many are hopping round the carpets?
I got some spot-on repellent for it and read up on the matter.  Thing is, and this is a big part of this moan, is that the dog and household treatments I saw in the shop have to be handled almost like weapons-grade plutonium.  Shampoo?  Don't rinse it down the drain or fish will go belly up.  Dog spot-on?  Don't let cats near for three days or they'll go belly up.  Carpet spray?  Don't touch affected areas for hours.  Then I realised that with all the pyrethrins in it, if I used it anywhere near my spiders, they'd go belly up too.  Crazy.

The internet is a grand invention.  You can find all kinds of stuff when you search for 'natural flea repellent'.

Some how I imagine you seeing them in its doody, or poking out of its bum :crazy: .

Am I the only one here fascinated by parasites :wry: ? They're so fascinating and specialized for their niches, though I do find all animal life interesting. Including the bacterium inside meteors.

When you spend 20mins in a phone queue, to a "technical support person" for Tiscali in their india call centre, when you try to explain in the past 2 weeks your internet has practically gone down 50% in performance and you wish for line checks and something to be done. When all they say is they only can promise 70% of you suggested speed and blah blah, Im like grrrr (in my head ofc) but its been fine for 2 years, until 2 weeks ago.

And they hang up  :explodinghead:

Not sure I'd class bacteria as an animal; but probably not a debate for here.

I find parasites pretty interesting - spent a large part of my last year at university studying them(and occasionally pulling them out of fish that smelled distinctly off, while hungover).

Anyway, back OT - one thing that ticks me off are TV quiz shows that spend more time chatting with contestants than asking them questions... I mean, when did quiz shows stop being about the quiz and start being a rather more boring version of Trisha?

Something along those lines.  It'd be too weird to explain in detail.

Yup, they're outside of animalia, in one, two, or even three kingdoms of their own.

I had a couple of modules on them during my course, but it didn't make me feel much better to learn all the myriad gross ways they can maim, torture, or just plain kill you.  Also didn't help to have one lecturer who displayed a sadistic streak in his powerpoint slideshows, and another with one or two anecdotes about using himself as a test subject.

Quiz shows: you been watching Deal or No Deal? :lol:

When Virgin Media TV packs up just before Britains got Talent and I have three kids who love it. TV is still not working and its pouring with rain. On the up side I got some serious XBOX time in as the missus couldn't watch her shows (level 22 on Zombie Verduct, yes I did glitch) now a day of Disney Dvd's.
