some still sneak in pets. not just fish, but other animals as well.
.
plus even in a pet free place, if it is a service animal. they can not be barred from living there. and others start to bring in pets out of jealousy. till the owners have to revoke the no pet ruling.
.
plus, many of those are condos. which means the folks living there do have the right to try and change the bylaws on the subject.
Is an Aspie considered a pet? They cause more damage with their head banging and smearing shite on the walls than to animals.

Populations of cats and dogs are being reduced by sterilization. There are increasing number of predators taking small dogs and cats.
Wolves, coyotes, coons, and bear kill dogs and cats.
And wolverines. In B.C. Canada wolverines moved near a town and 80 cats went missing. AWESOME. Winnipeg has between 50,000 and 100,000 wild feral stray cats. They are a invasive specie like zebr mussles, chinese carp, boring beetles etc. Its time to cull them big time. Wish I could own a wolverine I could let run loose in my neighbourhood.

People in Minnesota are fully aware that it is mandatory by law to shoot any stray cats and dogs that are harming wildlife. People who have lost their pets this way from being negligent and irresponsible pet-owners generally don't adopt new pets that can stray. Thus further reducing any market for pet-animals that breed.
Unwanted pets are also not dumped from other states into Minnesota, knowing full-well that those pets are likely to be shot to death to destroy them.
Non-human predators and costly spay & neuter programs have very little to do with the reduction in criminally irresponsible pet-owners and unwanted pets in Minnesota. Shoot-to-kill laws work well and work fast. The cost is also negligible to all tax-payers. It only costs the price of the ammo for those home-owners that care to obey the laws and shoot all unsupervised stray pets.
Keep up the good work

cats and dogs are actually very nutritious. My husband and I eat one or the other at least twice a week. One's nutritional needs can be met by ingesting the meat from these species. Many early explores to the poles relied on husky meat to make it through the long winters.
hey arschloch. get this straight.

to me cats and dogs are pets. they are NOT food in any sense of the word.

Many a pet has been eaten by Svengoolie and her Muslim friends. Lucky for her the Mexican identity thieves sifting through her garbage did not turn her in when they found the bones.

Cat hoaders like you need help. The stink in stink cat comes from over flowing litter boxes and dead kittens in the mounds of debris.

Don't suppose your sh*t encrusted underwear smells that good either.

Who knows with a small degree of personal hygiene you may become socially acceptable and lose the desire to troll cat forums.

but to my husband, daughter, rest of my family, & my friends, I do matter to them. and to me, their opinion is much more valuable than yours is,

the house does not stink of spray. since both of my toms have been missing their testes for well over a year now.
.
as for the litter boxes. they get cleaned every other day. and and the results are immediately put into the garbage can. and since my husband buys the clumping stuff. much easier to clean as well.
.
stop assuming things about pet owners. you tend to look rather inane when you do.

Not uppidy at all, just pointing out your loser lifestyle for every day you slobber over your filthy keyboard seeking attention on cat forums.
