Cat - the other white meat.

Cat - what's for dinner?


I forgot to ask.  Was the fur prime and did you skin them out?    :nono:

Ever notice everyone wants to kill them pythons in the everglades cuz of their impact on native species...but if you mention shooting or trapping feral cats which r brutal on wildlife the antis have a nutty  :confused:

Thats cause they justify things with their feelings and emotions. They think the ecosystem is some type of stereo.

No kitty cats this morning but I did manage these...I'm excited...I've probably got a whoppin' 5 dollar bill right here lol.  I only have a handful of traps out and they keep getting sprung by dang cats and possums.  I think I'l start calling myself The Possum Whisperer...or maybe the possum wrangler, it sounds more manly  :nono:

Feral cats can be a handful. Many yrs ago when I trapped. I had one trap left to set along a creek. I ran out of anchors. But I found a 4' 2x6 laying on the farmers burn pile. I anchored that trap to the 2x6 using horse shoe nails. Next am as I'm walking the creek in the darkness. I heard the chain rattling. I rounded a sharp bend. And about stepped into the jaws of the largest domestic cat I ever seen. Cat lunged at me over & over again. Pulling that wood 4' anchor my way on each lunge. He was huge & I gave him a wide berth. Finally I got the upper hand. I doubt even a starving coyote would've messed with him.

about the 2nd lunge would have been his last... .22 to the gourd would a settled him down...

Why would you wait until the second plunge?  Any cat we see out here in the desert is going to get dead in a hurry. 
When they come for mine they better bring theirs
