You can always let the crows organize a good cat fight:

I think some of you are not taking hayes' question seriously enough. Some of us truly love cats and forgive them for their shortcomings.However, I love chipmunks too and it breaks my heart when I find one dazed and confused in the yard.I have had pretty good success bringing them back from the River Styx though - and they go shooting off into the woods once they "wake up!""Your cats have their freedom, but I have rights too, you know."

QuoteOriginally posted by: trackstarI think some of you are not taking hayes' question seriously enough. Nope, I'm delighted by the mixture of responses and loved the hedgehog portal part. There's no point posting in off-topic and then complaining when it goes off-topic.....It's a tricky issue and like most things there's no straight forward answer, I appreciate all the serious (and not so serious) responses.

Cats and horses defecate everwhere. Dog owners have to pick it up in a plastic bag. Go figure.

Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.

Cat owners say that their cat is very clean and doesn't defecate except in a litter tray sometimes. THAT IS BECAUSE IT IS SHITING IN MY GARDEN.

Cats are subtle with their love; it is a gaze, with slow blinking eyes, or a brush of their tail across your hand when you are on your laptop and they pass by to visit you.Dogs just go all out all the time - bark bark bark jump jump jump.Which form of love you prefer says alot about you. It also helps if you speak cat language fluently; that takes time, but is very rewarding.

He sums it up best. Below is my paraphrase:When you put up a shelf, dogs look at you up the ladder and are thinking: I don't what you are doing, but I do love you. You are very clever. I do love you.When you put up a shelf, cats look at you up the ladder and are thinking: You are doing that wrong. Jesus man, use a spirit level. Oh now, you have gone and forgetten the screwdriver, idiot. Now what are you trying to do?
