Bob cat – another earthling friend

I love cats. I also love other animals – of course.

 ‘All things bright and beautiful and all creatures great and small’ – kind of thing’

I was mainly brought up in a home with cats, I learned that they are not too needy and they have so much charisma. they make you work you ass off for attention. Biting is seen as loving kisses.

If I allowed my Tatiana -a normal cat- to shit on my head , she would. I  am so owned.

Bobcats are a bit bigger than your average, well say – my Tatiana,  for instance.  They are known for being super shy.

 They are breathtaking to look at, a perfect of example of some of the things that nature got right .  It’s really weird. I saved my Tatiana -who happens to be a Bengal cat from an illegal sanctuary, that was under investigation, and she does the same thing with her tail. She is all spots on her body but her tail is all stripy. Sometimes I think she has a mental health issue like me. She just can’t accept her body :

I want to raise the issue of Wildlife over population  today. The green link is a great article on myths of dealing with over population.

 The Bob cat is a loner they do not share their territory. They are adaptable to desert conditions and forest conditions.

Us, humans have just about taken every inch of the planet for ourselves.  We want to build a freeway/motorway and bulldoze our way through a forest and a  home to many earthlings.  It has been known that bulldozers will even go through animals to get the job done. They won’t even be patient enough to let the animals move to safety.

That great big shopping mall where all your favourite fashion brand stores are, was probably home for animals like the Bobcat, once upon a time.

I’m not trying to make you feel guilty.

I only want you to understand that if you could put yourself in an animal’s hooves, paws – you get it- understand that an animal becomes homeless when it’s home is destroyed.  It is not just that new mall that drives them to seek refugee status from their homes- it is pollution, hunting, research, entertainment, or souvenir industries.

These are all topics I hope to explore in the next 24 days.

  Where do we expect them to go?

Something to think about.

Okay so back to the Bobcat – he starts looking for a new home. Chances are he is not the only newly evictee. He is a loner – the places he wants to take up home in is more than likely taken over by an earthling friend that operates in numbers.

Where does he go?

You may spot one near your home. All thoughts activate the juices of   the Amygdala primitive, caveman part of your brain.

There are too many of them – we need to get rid.  So Daddy gets together with his friends or the community come together and hunt down the homeless.

There is no other way –

We have to be cruel to be kind

That is just how things go

It is either them or us.


Killing is not the answer.

We can learn to live with our neighbours. Allow them their space so you can have yours too.



 If not kill then HOW?

There is an effective option that has been used on Deer in South Africa and other animals. It doesn’t harm them or poison them. It is called:

 immunocontraception—a humane way to control animal populations where it’s necessary and appropriate. This method safely uses the body’s immune response to prevent pregnancy without harming the animal or the population as a whole.

Immunocontraception has been used to control deer and wild horse populations across the United States and elephant populations in South Africa.

The same can be done with your own cat or dog. My Tatiana was spayed as soon as she was old enough. Yes, she will always be a virgin and I have possibly denied her all kind of sexual expression and liberty to procreate; but I can’t take care of hundred of litters of her kittens. If you have a boy family earthling – get him neutered.

Finally, please take 1 minunte of your time to listen to what the talented actor, Christopher Walken has to say .

Day two down and I have learned that people are lazy. The whole just shoot them and  get it over with as quickly as possible – is and never will be the right solution.

It is fucking up with our / natures eco-system which has a direct affect on us but that topic is for another day.

Have a grand Weekend -Going to pop over to Blogging A-Z to check out as many of your themes – 🙂 thanks for reading 🙂

  5. Keep fighting! We all need to do our share, however, remember as well -that the population will keep on growing. We will end up all clumped together in a world of cement if we protect every animal and stuff us humans in a jar. Difficult balance and whether we like it or not -humans will lose either way.


    • I agree but we need to retain our humanity. Nature did just fine without humans so yes. there is difficult balance. It’s about solving issues with nature and us humans living side by side. Respectful . This challenge and the theme I’ve chosen -is opening up my eyes to humane solutions. Thanks for commenting and an extra thanks for saying your piece.
