I've seen many people like you who idly threaten people's lives on the internet. I said my shovel was used to pick up the dead cats that were attracted to my neighborhood by my neighbor's feral cat feeding station, then trespassed into my yard. You can attempt to blame me and my dogs, but I was totally within my rights to have them confined in my yard, and they protected it from trespassers.
What, no bowl of antifreeze? I'm surprised.

I put out dozens of bird feeders. And I'm often rewarded with raptors in my yard.

May it be noted you are the one mentioning the use of poisons. I mentioned having been a dog owner, and having them confined to my own property, which as far as I know is entirely ethical, moral, and legal. Raptors? Yes, I've welcomed them onto my property as is fitting the status of a native predator.

You made a valid point, but you could of did it with out patting yourself on the back. Your reponse comes off a little cocky when you decide to put yourself ahead of the issue.

What you said was this, "I would have smacked you on the head with your own shovel." I don't know where you are from, but where I was raised that is called a threat to do serious bodily harm or murder and is usually followed by a fight. As a combat veteran I have had a number of people, both individuals and armies, threaten my life and attempt my murder and I have obviously survived.
Now, do you know how to debate or do you just threaten people and insult them?

It seems you have already taken a few too many shots to the head. A threat is "I am going to come smack you on the head with a shovel" see the intent? Saying I would have is just a statement. Thank you for your service

True, I have taken a number of shots to my head, along with other parts of my anatomy. This has sensitized me until I have an allergic reaction to weapons, including shovels. I break out in a rash.
Like so many of my Brothers my service was not voluntary to begin with, but we had it to do.

Katzes need to be free !

Locking them up is cruel and unusual.

I love watching a cat catch and gut a fish, like watching "Animal Planet" Cool
