My Disgust For Cats: Explained
Okay, just so everyone knows- i’m not evil. I love animals. I am totally against abuse or any form of harm & neglect towards ALL types of animals- even cats. Now that that is out of the way…
So i’m sure a few of you have seen me make the odd post about me hating cats. I’m not here to convince you i was joking, because i actually do hate cats, sorry not sorry. I figured since i love all my loyal followers, & consider you guys my friends, you have the right to know why.
Fun fact: i worked at a vets office for 6 months before i got Degrassi. It was for school, a co-op placement. Prior to this experience i wasn’t really a “fan” of cats, but i could tolerate them without my skin crawling every time i saw one. Working at this vets office i worked with a lot of animals, & every animal had its own personality… except for, the freekin cats. They were all the same. Smelly, & bitchy. Yes people, i don’t care what you say, i will always believe cats to be smelly & bitchy.
If you decide not to read the rest AT LEAST read this part, my main point. Cats are so over populated. At the vets office we would get boxes (yes, cardboard boxes) FULL of kittens. People would drop them off. They found them behind a dumpster, or in an alley way, or under their porch. Half the cats end up being euthanized because the office becomes over populated with strays & no one is taking them home. CATS ARE OVER POPULATED. If you, for whatever reason, have made a decision that you need a cat in your life PLEASE go to a shelter or your local vets office. The last animal this world needs more of is cats. By breeding cats you are killing other cats because they are getting either euthanized or killed from some sickness on the street.
All the dogs that came in were for the most part, sweet. They wanted people around. They wanted to be pet, & taken care of, & when they were recovering from surgery, they just wanted the sound of a persons voice. CATS, on the other hand- ugh. I can’t even- they were just SO goddamn mean. “Lyle they were probably scared being away from home”- yes, well so were the dogs that just had their uterus sliced out an hour ago, but were they constantly clawing, hissing, & shitting everywhere? NO.
It started with this one cat. Jinx was its name or something. Yeah i was Jinxed all right. I made him the nicest bed, gave him extra food, & was super nice to him. The bastard clawed me. Out of no where. He went from purring (he was just getting dental work, he hadn’t had anything done yet) to scratching me, then hissing at me in a corner. “Lyle that was just one cat like calm down”. No. It wasn’t. Every cat either hissed, clawed, or was just sneezing & im sorry but i cant stand snot flying all over me every day. Cats are getting so sickly because half of them are strays. Its actually quite sad.
Litter boxes. Ew. Who thinks “I wanna get a pet that shits in a box that i have to clean”. Dogs can be trained to go outside at least & you don’t have to deal with it. That’s all i have to say about litter boxes.
I guess after reading my own post over, its more the peoples fault then the cats. Last week i was eating at a restaurant & a stray cat came on the porch. Someone threw it a french fry. Like thats going to make it go away. Next time i went to the restaurant (today) & four cats come to the porch. Like people, dont feed the cat at a public restaurant thats so gross.
So ya, i have a reason. If you like cats, great, but dont breed them. Yes, the same can go for dogs- you should adopt, but im saying there is way more stray cats then likely any other animal. I know half of you likely didnt read this, & dont give two shits why i dislike cats & i wouldnt care either, but some people seem to think im messed up or mean because of a dislike for cats. Some people hate sharks, some hate spiders, but I, Lyle O’Donohoe can not stand cats.
PS. If i ever own a cat punch me, k thanks.
