If i see a cat crapping in my garden it gets squirted with police pepper spray.
They never come back to do it again!<whistle>

It's that the sort of thing only a complete prat would do? I don't have much time for cats, but that is totally un-necessary, and almost certainly cruel. <grr>

Hi there Grumpy. You really are an enigma. Do you really think our four legged friends are stupid? My older son hates our cat and dog and I'm not exactly sure what he has done to put them off (the bucket of water I saw him with may be a clue) but it certainly isn't a stern voice or I'd borrow it to try and stop our 8 year old cat Dodi from tiddling at the bottom of the stairs. It seems to be a winter preocupation so I'd best get the cat litter box at the ready. No, I would say that if an animal (whatever the species) was determined enough they will goad you into extreme measures. Could be his smell? That keeps me away! Anyway, Shropshire friend this has inspired me to post another discussion. Watch out!

Dogs don't attack people? You have got to be joking. Don't you read the papers? There have been two instances in the last couple of weeks where dogs have attacked and savaged young children.

Dogs should always be muzzeled and always on a lead. Man's best friend? Rubbish they are a complete nuisance (could use some stronger words but the controllers wouldn't like it).

If a dog attacks anyone or anything they should be immediately shot as next time it will probably be a child.

Shooting? Now where's that Hangman topic? I think dogs, cats, rabbits, budgies and all house pets are lovely. Just one disadvantage to a human friend. They die young but not as soon as some of the the farmyard friends.

Guide dogs, Carer dogs (amazing animals), sniffer dogs, police dogs, tracker and mountain rescue dogs, dogs that predict their onwners' oncoming epileptic fits, companions - a nuisance? I think you're a bit wrong. And all those duties done with devotion and lack of self-interest. Beats plenty of humans.

A handful is an understatement, we only meant to have two but they bred as they do which was a nightmare. First the bitch had to have a ceasarean then we ended up with a pup with leg problems.

Still one year on, 6 operations and nearly two grand in vets fees which we weren't insured for they are all tickety boo.

And do they appreciate it. not a chance.

dogs can rip you apart, maul you etc and even the friendliest pet dog can turn nasty for no apparent reason, believe me I have the scars to prove it
Rather have dogs than people anyday, at least they don't mug,murder,lie or cheat you like so called civilised humans do!
Seeing as there's a discussion going on about the merits of cats, I'd like to throw this in to the mix. Why do dogs owners always assume that everyone loves their dog? If I'm out walking, nothing hacks me off more than some untethered mutt bounding up to me and either: a) Growling b)Barking at me c)Jumping up at me d)sniffing my crutch or e)finding some other way to cover me in wet stinking dog hair. The rare dog that is actually on a lead is little better. The owners just smile as if to say "Isn't he sweet?" Yeah, right-not too sweet to avoid a size 8.

Don't get me wrong , I actually quite like dogs, but the owners all appear to be sharing one brain cell between them. Round our way now, rather than dispose of dog mess properly, there are little black bags of dog faeces left at the sides of footpaths - the owners obviously think the dog poo fairy comes round in the night to collect them up.

There will always be "rogue" dogs, or perhaps ill-trained ones; but the good vastly outweigh the bad. (Message 59)
