Using as an example a personal experience....
when one of my rescued cats was used as target practice
and left for dead having been shot five times with an air-rifle,
including one through the eye, incidentally by a 'well brought
up young man'..the police were not the slightest bit interested
and failed to comply with the RSPCA in meeting up at the
youth's house in order to confiscate his weapon to check for
ballistics it being a serious crime..
As statistics prove, this type of person invariably move on to
child abuse, which I suggested to the police, initiating an
interest and a search for the weapon.
Nobody is suggesting the cat is of more importance than the
baby, but had these parents had the foresight to appreciate that
an animal who is in the home before the infant, can show signs of
jealousy, and take the necessary precautions, i.e., ensure that the
cat does not come in contact with the baby, then this would not have
happened
I ask myself how they will deal with the baby if and when he/she
shows signs of bad behaviour in the future, Hopefully with better
parenting skills than they have shown as animal owners.
Comparing a sick twisted individual who shoots peoples pets for fun and someone who is defending their child is ridiculous. What he did isn't animal abuse at all. It is normal reaction. Sure maybe they had bad foresight but hindsight is always 20/20/. I'm sure they learned a lesson. If anything, the fact they were held hostage by a cat tells me they will be overly docile push-over parents who raise a spoiled brat.

Great post. I still cannot see why they would not get rid of this mangy cat. Personally I would have. Cats have but one use, to kill mice, live in a barn etc.
I think I poked the bear on the other thread about this same topic.

I don't even dislike cats. except feral cats, I hate those things they are invasive and destroy the native wildlife. My old Maine coon was awesome. Still I would not have a cat and baby in the same house. They are too unclean and way to likely to carry parasites. If you wonder why so many cat fanatics seem kinda crazy look up Crazy Lady Syndrome and Toxoplasmosis.

I will. I do believe you are more likely correct. As I have read and it is true when you see people with cats or pets inside, especially cats are sick more often and take a long time to get better.

Just a word from this crazy lady, lol. Although cat fanatic does not apply, I merely
picked up a neglectful neighbours rejects, as somebody had to when they were
flung out when they no longer appealed.

Having 'owned' a cat yourself, and a fine breed at that, you will know that cats are
clean creatures, and looked after properly, i.e. inoculations, wormed regularly,
precautions against fleas, groomed, then they are not the health hazard that some
assume them to be. Neutered and spayed too, cutting down on the number of
unwanted kittens which can add to the feral population.

Cats are fastidiously clean, when looked after.

No they aren't really, The fact you say how much care they need to be clean is my proof... I do agree about the spay and neutering, pet cat's I have no problem with at all. I get really upset though with cat owners who's decisions raise the feral cat population. Feral cats have miserable lives ( to me a form of abuse) and they reek havoc on native wildlife. Just because cats like themselves doesn't mean they are clean.... If you have ever seen a feral cat den, you would know what I mean. They are one of the few animals that will S*** were it eats.

Oh you and I totally agree on one thing... Maine Coon's are a fantastic breed if one wants a cat... Mine was very large even by Maine Coon standards. That cat was his own worse enemy sometimes though, woodchucks, raccoons, foxes.... Cat would chase and challenge anything for his territory. Good thing the dogs would look after him. He could hold his own but sure would get hurt if he was alone...I really did love that cat.
