Just add water. :thumbsup:

i thought it was a car starter kit too :?

Relieved to see I'm not the only one who misread this then!

Looks a great deal though, shame I'm also missing the kitty for it.

In response to all the relatives of Mr Magoo, I have changed the thread title - apologies to disappointed motor-heads. Love the alternative cat-carrier. Must get one!

Great, do they do one for the wife? :whistling:

Thanks for that, Chelskii. Do you recommend setting the limit to one per household? Presumably you're going to take the lead in this? Please let us know which one you will get rid of and how. I would recommend a public execution so that your neighbours can learn how easy it is to forget sentimentality and do the decent thing.

(Yes I am being sarcastic)

I have Two cats which are great but the birds they torture and destroy is terrible... They need to be controlled as to how many can be owned per household because if they carry on as they are most of our birds,voles and endangered mice will all be gone (some people have about 10 of these death machines in One house)...In fact I'm voting cold in the hope that less people will get a cat.



Great idea, anybody wish to buy my "Cat Quota"? soon to be advertised on ebay :-) I agree with the concept of responsible pet ownership, inclusive of cats, dogs, rabbits and our fishy friends.

Dear god what have I wandered into here? I voted hot, don't need any of this stuff right now, but it's a fantastic price for anyone who does. I'm sure we spent more than that just on the carrier.

Interesting point. I don't have cats but my parents have a brother and sister pair and it is really interesting to see how the cats interact with each other. They seem to be much happier than solitary cats in households. A frustrating result is that they are rather less reliant on human affection than single ones, for whom meal time is the sole highlight of a fairly dull life.

Is there any actual evidence that cats negatively impact the environment? I remember Chris Packham, the TV presenter, saying something similar. But I don't remember actually seeing anything written down. It is Saturday night and I am a little too lazy for intense Googling!

Sounds like someone needs to get laid ;-)

FWIW Cats bring a lot of pleasure to a lot of people - including me!

Yes, they are hunters by nature and so will naturally chase smaller creatures (that is, if the lazy cats can be that bothered - most prefer sun bathing)

What next? Are you proposing to euthanise birds because they eat worms?

PS Cats are generally very well behaved. Unlike a lot of the knife wielding kids out on the streets who present a greater risk to society at large. Perhaps we should start gassing anyone found in public with a knife too?

nature isnt it?

Erm...domestic cats kill very little wildlife... we feed them cat food thus they kill very few animals. If there were only wild cats and no domestic ones (as would be in nature) far more birds, voles, rats, etc would be killed as they would need to be to feed the cats.

Our household cats are much more interested in attacking each other because there are two of them - sure, they hunt insects but I'm sure they'd rather playfight than go to the effort of catching a bird. 1 cat households would result in far more birds being killed just because of the lack of playfighting meaning they'd compensate by hunting. You must seriously dislike your cats to wish you only had one!

A survey by The Mammal Society in 2003 estimated that of the … A survey by The Mammal Society in 2003 estimated that of the [COLOR="Red"]275 million[/COLOR] animals caught by cats each year, 55 million are birds.This is from "5" years ago so I dread to think how bad it is now, So if you really belive that - "Erm...domestic cats kill very little wildlife"Maybe you should have a look here and use some of the tips -http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/animals/wildbritain/gardenwildlife/myspace/content.shtml?41



Well, yes, I still do believe cats don't kill much wildlife. Thoughout the entire year, 55 million birds were killed. How many domestic cats are there in the uk? 7.2 million in 2008 (pfma.org.uk/ove…htm ). In 2003, there were 9.2 millions (click historical figures on the previous page).
This means that not taking into account strays, the fact that the figures are probably inflated (the mammal society has no reason to deflate them anyhow), that means each cat kills around 5-6 birds a year. Imagine a cat in the wild - they will kill orders of magnitudes more birds each year, otherwise it would die of hunger!

I'm not saying cats don't kill wildlife - I'm just saying that while X millions might seem alot, remember that there are also millions of cats in this country!

... and all I did was recommended a good buy!!!

Feral cats generally speaking kill at least 3-4 animals per week. My 2 cats go out every day, are a year old, and have never killed anything. My mum has 5 cats, and has only had one bird loss this entire year. I suspect that any numbers of dead birds/mammals etc. (probably over exagerated anyway) are being made up by the rather large number of abandoned, lost and feral kitties out there.
Don't blame responsible owners who actually feed their cats, blame those who don't get their cats neutered, who let them breed wildly, who don't find offspring responsible homes, who dump/abandon cats, etc. etc.
This statistic is from 2002 so probably a lot worse now - As well as over 7 million pet cats, Britain has around 1 million feral cats.
Those feral cats have to kill animals to survive. If you have a problem with cats killing wildlife, try and support the local cat charities trying to get feral cats off the streets and at least neutered/spayed, don't target domestic owners who look after their animals.
