Some People Hate Cats

Why do some people hate cats? There can only be two issues. One: they have been taught things about cats either deliberately or through actions that later in life translates to a dislike and distrust of cats. This is normally a dislike born out of a lack of proper education about cats. This sort of person can be retrained to like cats.

The other must be a dislike of animals generally. This sort of person has no problem killing animals either through hunting or out of malice. This sort of person must hate himself too as he is also an animal (as are we all).

The two reasons for disliking cats are therefore not based on sound grounds. One is ignorance, the other anger and malice directed indiscriminately.

There is no logical reason to dislike cats. They are fine companions and their presence enhances ones life. I would not trust a person who dislikes cats. I would also dislike a person who dislikes cats.

You can't hate a cat for acting naturally even if that means killing wildlife. We kill animals anyway and each other. You can't hate a cat because you think she thinks she is superior to you. This are your thoughts not the cats. Cats don't think like that anyway. Life is much simpler for a cat.

The basic argument is that if you dislike animals you are liable to create problems all your life because we are animals too, so you must dislike humans and yourself. If you dislike cats, you should accept that you are mistaken and learn why.

FYI, that's a foam dart crossbow and the reason the cat is so focused on it is because he likes to chase the darts down when I fire them.

I don't want to get deluged with emails berating me for hating cats.
Some people can love animals, but dislike cats. Cats are not the ost endearing, especially as they are aloof. Others running around hissing at you. I find cats to be inconsistent as all get out.

I love dogs.

Cats are best stir fried.

Lacie, I do not think it is possible to love one animal and think it best to eat another. You either like animals or not. If you believe that cats are aloof it is because you have probably met cats that are afraid or suspicious of humans. Bearing in mind what you have said I am not surprised that they are aloof. They would be wise to run.

I must say that the author's comment about humans being animals is enough for me to disregard her/his opinion about anything she/he has to say. However cats are animals that are very sweet and beautiful but they are predators. Even the sweetest of the cats are in general very selfish, self loving and cunning. But again it is an animal so it must be forgiven. The humans of that kind are more difficult to tolerate.

To Anon - humans are animals, why would you disregard what was said in the article due to a factual comment?

Regarding the point of the "article", I dislike and sometimes hate cats due to an allergy I have to them or their fur. You can add that to your list.

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
