    I'm not a cat person. I think there is something inherently wrong with cat people. If a woman owns cats, I usually won't date her. Simple as that. There is just something off about cat people. With that said, I agree with you.

    I guess I better consider myself lucky that Kilyin ever wanted anything to do with me then.

    :rolleyes:

    Stereotypes are awesome. And by awesome, I mean completely ridiculous.

    Yeah, I would think not.

    Probably on moral grounds.

    LOL

    Yeah, I agree with all of this. I've got 2 cats and a white lab, all are rescues. All of them are indoor/outdoor pets. My cats go out every morning and roam all day then come home in the evenings. I'm sure they crap in other people's yards, and I know other people's cats crap in my yard. I've never let a 2 inch turd in the grass ruin my day. I've never understood the whole men hating cats deal. I'm a manly man. I've kayaked and backpacked all over the world, hunt and fish, drink beer, played sports, and I like to sit on the couch an watch football while scratching kitty ears! So what? :D

    Cat's will poop on concrete. I know this first hand, I'm not guessing. Despite what I may sound like, I am not anti cat. I am anti "letting your pet roam free and be the problem of the entire community except when you feel like actually being a responsible pet owner and let it inside."

    If someone let a pit bull roam the neighborhood for the sake of its happiness, those same people would be calling animal control without thinking twice.

    Not to mention that taking the side of your free-ranging cat (or in this case, the free-ranging cat of another poster) over the word of a human neighbor ( or a posters neighbor) is so bss ackwards that it boggles the mind.

    That I'd go to my neighbor and tell them their essentially stray-cat has pooped in my garage, and their response is that I'm a liar and a baby is exactly what's wrong with America. :laugh2:

    Real men don't hate Cats.

    Men who have many other issues...not related to cats...hate cats.

    :D

    The day a free roaming cat tears a person a new A Hole...or kills them like a Pit Bull could instead of avoiding them like a cats does...then it might be a fair comparison.

    I would take a free ranging cats side over a humans side any day and twice on Sundays...but then again I can't stand most people.

    And people are what's wrong with America...not Cats...so there you are.

    We all know about the archetypal character of the crazy cat lady. And odds are if you haven’t experienced this kind of person in real life, you’ve seen a character representative on shows like CSI, The Office, or The Simpsons. The “crazy cat lady” is associated with an aging spinster who attempts to fill the void in her life with an increasing number of feline friends. This kind of person is associated with loneliness and depression, and in the case of The Simpsons — that has pushed them over the edge into insanity. However, there is a new study out right now that suggests that there may also be a physiological connection between cat hoarding and loneliness, depression and suicide.

    The study comes out of Denmark, whose researchers found that women who are infected with a certain type of parasite found in cat poop are one and a half times more likely to commit suicide. The bacteria is called Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii), and not only does being around it make you more likely to commit suicide, but you are more likely to do so through more violent means. In this case violent refers to cutting or stabbing oneself, shooting or jumping from a building, as opposed to overdosing or something like that.

    In the past, the parasite has been linked to mental illness and schizophrenia, and with the increase infection comes an increase in these symptoms. The senior author in this study, Teodor Postolache of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Explains that the connection between the parasite and suicide is still tenuous. It should be noted that this is the first large scale study of this type, with 45,000 test subjects.

    “We can’t say with certainty that T. gondii caused the women to try to kill themselves, but we did find a predictive association between the infection and suicide attempts later in life that warrants additional studies. We plan to continue our research into this possible connection.”

    He goes on to explain that this study has not drawn any conclusions about how T. gondii actually causes suicide.

    Cats are supposed to be great for your mental health, but a new study found a link between owning a cat and trying to kill yourself.

    That might be a little misleading. What we do know is that being around cats increases exposure to the Toxoplasma gondii parasite — and that, in turn, can cause mental illness, possibly leading to suicide.

    But T. gondii is actually very common: about a third of the world's population is infected. Cat owners are more likely to have it because it can be transmitted through cat poop, and thus is often found in litter boxes.

    Researchers studied 45,000 women in Denmark to look for a connection between T. gondii infection and suicide. This was the largest ever study on the subject, and the first to document suicide attempts after infection had been discovered. Apparently, women infected with T. gondii are one-and-a-half times more likely to attempt suicide, and the more widespread the infection, the greater the risk.

    For some reason, I've never really trusted people that own only cats.
