Cats will kill the [expletive] out of anything in your house and they will do it in cold blood.

They are the Mongols of the animal world and I love it.


cats will kill anything anytime. if they were bigger they wouldn't think twice about killing humans

They would likely kill the unfashionable people first. Then the cripples, then gypsies, traitors next, then musicians and so forth.

I, for one, would welcome it.


But they wouldn't kill them quickly. They'd cripple them first and toy with them for a long time.

In 800 years, we will be extolling the positives the third Reich had on society, and so goes the cat Reich.

The Nile will run red once again. And a million peasants will weep at the sight of the cat siege machines.

Oh, there are a million ways to amuse ones self at the misfortune of a cat.

Tape on the paws, tape on the back, a string on the tail.

All a lot of fun. But still, the day will come when your heads are struck off at the order of the Great Cat Khan.

We had a cat that would routinely eat dental floss out of the trash and then you'd be chasing it around the house because it would have a turd stuck to the floss coming out of its ass.

We had another cat (my favorite, Superdude) whose tail was broken when he was a kitten (this is when we lived in Thailand and we adopted him from a street cat rescue service) so it formed a little hook at the end. If he was walking by you could reach out and hook the hook with your finger and he would just keep walking place, completely baffled as to what was happening.

Indeed. Cats eat lots of things. They have been known to cannibalize their dead when separated from supply trains.

My brother and I got our Super Nintendo when we had to give up our first cat because it was a freakin' menace that would steal any food left on the corner unwatched for more than 30 seconds and would NOT stop pissing in front of the [expletive] fire place no matter what we tried.

I put in a cat door and put the litterbox in the basement. The only real issue I have with them is the constant tipping over of beverages, I have to drink from bottles all the time.

That's exactly what happened. A few posters couldn't stop themselves from announcing how awful cats are (or how much better dogs are, unsolicited). Then Sulley came in and started saying bizarre but awesome things.

I am going to get this [expletive] back on track with an adorable picture of my cat doing his best to take up as much of the bed as possible.

And a two-part photo series of my cat poised to attack me and then flying at me, mid-assault.

ACTION CAT.

To be fair, this was started as a joke thread because cat owners couldn't be bothered.

Tried it last week when this was a thing on reddit. My cats didn't care. They also could care less about laser pointers.

My husky has a nest of baby birds, 3 bunny rabbits, two possums and... one cat on his kill list. And that's just what we've found.

He's a vicious, unforgiving, despicable cuddle-bug.

We'd probably have a cat at this point if we knew this friendly face wouldn't tear it's guts out.

Eh, cats are still the top predators of the animal world.

Had 2 cats growing up and they were awesome. Never understood where there had to be a cat/dog thing. They're both [expletive] awesome for different reasons.

Sadly, all of my inlaws are allergic so we can't have cats :(
