Skip to comments.Cats, Not Cars, Cause…Climate Change? (MEOW?)
Posted on 07/15/2011 4:46:53 PM PDT by PROCON
Well, you can save your money and forget about buying that Prius. Because apparently cats, not cars, cause climate change. Thats the latest according to some research studies.
The problem is reportedly due to a cat epidemic in the U.S., where the entire feline population has tripled in the last four decades to some 600 million furry critters. The studies report that global warming prompts cats to breed like, well, rabbits, and once theres an overpopulation, our furry feline friends start killing off eco-saving birds en masse.
Sounds like a lose, lose. Right?

My cat causes litterbox odor disorder, but no climate change...
Kitteh globalwarming ping!
Oh my....the evil Kitteh?
I’ve a .22 long rifle which has, and can help more, to cut those numbers down.
The cats’ plan for worldwide domination kicks up another notch...
You’re not a cat lover?...Tsk, tsk...
I have a Maine Coon named Hannah Leigh. I’ll let her read the article and see what she thinks.
My Viking Kitties are doing their part!!
Now I feel bad for blaming it on the dog.
Fine, but don't let her hypnotize you...then it'll be too late..
I wasn’t aware there was a kitteh revolution afoot..but it certainly makes since to me.
My kitty can’t reproduce...so I am fairly sure she is doing her best to kill me by getting tangled up in my feet. I have been assured it’s a “cat thing”...I just didn’t know why. :) Increase in the cat population...decrease in the human population.
Viking kittehs cause globalwarming Ping!
>> Increase in the cat population...decrease in the human population.<<
Until we get to the tipping point. Good think cats can’t operate a can opener, else their scheme would have been accelerated...
No, cats do not “contribute to global warming.”
The scare is that more cats, due to a lengthened breeding season (if you “hide the decline,” that is) means less birds which means more insects which means (in principle) fewer green plants?
But here’s the facts, Jack: Green plants love warmth and CO2, it is yummies for them. This will feed more bugs, which will feed more birds, which will feed more cats! Everyone wins with global warming.
Soylent Green is kitties!
By the way, I have a long-time friend who, no matter how tough you think you are, is tougher -- an ex Con (who has redeemed himself) who Did Time, a guy who has pulled a gun on bad-boy bikers gangs and WON, a guy who has braved some of the toughest seas you could know in a little tiny boat (think "The Perfect Storm"), a guy who went eyeball-to-eyeball with the crew of a Soviet mega-trawler in the high seas and eye-witnesses I know, who would never have put themselves in such a dangerous predicament, saw him come away with a smile on his face and some excellent vodka in exchange for American "luxuries" like razors and bourbon --
-- if this guy saw you aiming a .22 at his beloved cat (like many fisherman, he always had a cat on the boat with him) or any other housecat ... well, I hate to think what would happen to you. Suffice it to say you'd be lucky if you were physically able to shoot at cats after that. Some of THE most manly, gnarly, tough dudes I know, dudes who would scare the crap out of you with one level look -- and I know a few -- have real soft spots for cats and real hard-ons for jerks like you.
Yep, when they master the can opener...it will be game over.
She won’t hypnotize me, she’s to worn out being ticked at the nut in the WH. RepubliCAT all the way.
But their getting close...
I don’t know about their effect on globull warming, but I had a cat once whose farts were absolutely deadly. If the military could weaponize his emissions ...
.."one more hard boiled egg and I'm gonna warm up my little corner of the world"
Al is now going after cats.
I prefer rabbits and squirrel
eating that is.
Medal of Honor Cat.
My sister sent me this. It’s pretty cute.
LOL! Rocky’s Revenge.
This just screams government-funded junk science.
If we had a responsible government, these scientists wouldn’t get another dime of our money.
M-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-R (hiss slash bite)
ALL AGW government-funded research is bunk!
Just a fun little Friday afternoon nonsense thread..:=)
And with kittehs too...
Commercial fisherman are, in a lot of ways, just sea-going cowboys! Don't know any that came from Illinois, or any that wore black leather and corduroy! No, as a matter of fact, this gent I refer to in my post always wore Frisco jeans. Black -- the only color they came in.
I think my cat is a Ron Paul conservative. He likes to hunt. He likes to fish. But he doesn’t see anything wrong with getting high on a little catnip. No matter what, it’s none of my business.
On the other hand, he’s always looking for a handout.
HA...Preach it, Finny....my hubbie is one of those....LOVES his kitty...”Boo” kitty is his long lost BROTHER!
HA...Preach it, Finny....my hubbie is one of those....LOVES his kitty...”Boo” kitty is like a long lost BROTHER! They wrestle, they fight, they play catch (yes, this kitty likes to play catch)
“Good think cats cant operate a can opener...”
My cat came from a breeder whose goal is to create smart cats with thumbs. She’s not there yet, but he does have a thumb and uses it when he picks up his toys.
Cat .... The other white meat.
I suspect this is going to tick off a few of the Viking Kitties...
I pinged all the Viking Kitteh folk, even the Mod, I suspect they are all in with the vast, right paw conspiracy..:=)
Gosh ! You mean to say I’ve been fighting climate warming for over thirty years ? !! >PS
Libs sure don’t let facts get in the way of their illogical conclusions.
There are cat problems but they are all caused by people being irresponsible. Hoarders, people letting them go ‘in the country’ to form feral populations and people turning in pets because they get tired of them, that’s the main problems here.
THe libs’ conclusions such as banning all pet ownership, etc because of this (ie zero tolerance logic, TSA logic) instead of just hammering down hard on the obvious problem people, proves yet again you can give people facts but you can’t get them to come to a logcial conclusion.
