Nowhere in that post does it say the cat came out with someone climbing, only that there is a missing cat that belongs to someone who (presumably) lives near where the cat went missing, which is near a climbing area.

Useful post, glad you contributed. And didn't even read well enough to see the cat is not hers, but she is serving as the contact for somebody that possibly can't?

i mean, it's more a guideline than a hard and fast rule...

I really love how MP is 3/4 people being dicks when someone is asking for help.

Its the Anti-Bambi Generation--follow the Thumper rule, people!

Good luck on finding your friends cat.

I'll take this opportunity to mention that cats are an ecological nightmare.  In the USA, they are estimated to kill 1.3 to 3.7 billion birds and 6.3 to 22.3 billion mammals annually.

Anyways, this is a digression. Good luck getting your pet back.

what sort of filth are you getting into in the hot tub that requires a cinder block?

My point was you rushed in, not even parsing the post completely, to make a joke about the cat being eaten by a coyote and lob an accusatory question about letting the cat run wild.

I am not a fan of people letting their cats roam free killing birds and turning gardens into litter boxes. Found a turd by my door this morning actually. However that was not definitively what happened here - maybe it got loose from the RV and ran off scared. But even if it were the case, you really want to be the guy rushing in to blame the person upset about their cat? And then make a joke about it being eaten?

And it is an obvious joke anyway, but kudos for being the first to post it. At least it is getting her post some exposure.

Edit cider block on wall above tub. Falls into redwood panel.

You read the OP as "What do you think of cats"?

Good luck finding the cat.  

Ron and mpech,
Environmental and health concerns noted.  Now go piss off and start a thread about that issue, while making sure to also mention man's best friend.

Ron,
It is unnecessary and vile to mention your support for the coyotes on a thread looking to find a lost pet.  I hope you get locked up for the animal cruelty you likely commit weekly.

As a fellow cat owner, I feel for you. Post on pawboost.com if you haven't already.

yeah, i've never heard of congenital toxo infections being misdiagnosed as SIDS... there are definitely other things that get mislabelled as SIDS.

Here's a good read on toxoplasmosis:
