So much like the average bloke, though. Bless 'em. :thumbsup:

The cat brought in two mice last night. One dead. One alive. The dead ones are easier to deal with.

Word. I once tried to rescue a rat from my cat and the fucker bit through my hand, basically ripping it apart. Poor wee thing was obviously terrified. Had to get rabies and tetanus shots and stitches. And then I had to euthanase it by chopping it's heed off with a shovel, because it was so badly maimed.

Talk about ungrateful. :bluemad:

Yeah, there is always such a surge of emotions when the prey is still alive. The living one bolted for my bedroom, and I was like, "oh fuck, now I have to find a tiny wee mouse." Fortunately it stopped to catch its breath, so I threw a shirt on it to arrest any further movement, scooped it up and released it in the garden. The dead one is now turning into compost.
It's the circle, the circle of life.

Here's The Grauniad's take on crazy cat ladies:

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... lurophiles

It goes through the usual suspects such as animal hording disorder and toxoplasma gondii, before concluding that the culprit is the patriarchy: "...the concept of the crazy cat lady tells us more about societal perceptions of women than anything else. It has long been a pejorative term and a device for transferring shame and judgment on women who challenged traditional roles, or were hard to domesticate and keep in line."

I'm going to so miss that newspaper when it goes bust. The trouble is, I refuse to give them the price of a cup of coffee on account of the bastards disabling my account.
