FML - The follow-up

Today, one of my cats gave birth. My other cat responded by eating the new litter in a jealous rage, then got indigestion and vomited. I had to clean up regurgitated kittens. FML

coldstar Say more :
Just to clarify a few things: my two adult cats (the mother and the baby-eater) are sisters. I had planned to have them both spayed a few months ago but the baby-eater was very unwell at the time, so I decided to postpone the spaying for both of them so that I could eventually get them both done at the same time. By the time the unwell cat had recovered the other had already snuck out of the house and fallen pregnant, so I resigned myself to letting her have the kittens and then taking them both

125- You obviously know little about canine behavior. On one hand, no, a well raised dog generally won't kill and eat its owner. On the other, a mother dog with a hormone imbalance will eat her own pups.

#2, you are confused, dear. While the term "eating pussy" connotes something very pleasureable (at least for the recipient;)), it is just a figure of speech. When it happens literally, the kitties die a fast death and are gone forever.

Honestly I don't think she's being sarcastic, I think she genuinely thought they were swallowed whole or something then thrown up before being digested. Which yes, leaves some intelligence to be desired

What gives the majority of you the right to insult someone for either, looking past the obvious or making a sarcastic comment? I mean WHO CARES. Post how you feel about the author not about comments that can be misjudged. Seriously, people need to lay off feeling high & mighty over other.

Yeah, you never know how an animal will behave. When my cat had kittens, I was careful to closely supervise the father with the newborns because he'd been so vicious with other animals. He even chased my neighbor's big dog across the street because he was trying to get in my house. But he loved those kittens. He played with them, cuddled with them, and gave them baths. He really did everything their mother did for them except nurse them. It turned out that he's not a mean cat after all. Hen was

Very true, and it's not that the mom wasn't more protective of the kittens, she just gave birth! Male cats in particular or grown female cats will rip off the head of or eat the kittens simply because the female will have the kitten's undivided attention or territory. It's instinctual, not the cat's fault, remember they are only another face of God. OP had no excuse, should have researched on what he was getting into and separated the cats before the kittens came into the world...shame on OP for

What if OP wanted kittens? Who the hell are you to say that OP is wrong? That's like saying that I'm irresponsible for having kids because their are so many orphaned kids.

#17- I understand what you're saying, and it's okay if OP wants kittens. But proper research obviously should've been done. And most people won't keep an entire litter, and homes for kittens are often hard to find. There's enough cats in the shelter without irresponsible backyard breeders contributing to that.

I agree with you 13. Most people do not realize truly how many cats and dogs are euthanized every day. It's something we don't like to talk about, and since we don't see it we pretend it doesn't exist. I have seen puppies get gassed and it will stick with me for the rest of my life. Furthermore, stray cats are a huge threat to the ecosystem as they are great hunters with very few natural predators, they are basically an invasive species. Not saying there is anything wrong with cat ownership, I j

You guy are rightish, maybe OP Wanted kittens, and just because most people get rid of most of the kittens. That doesn't mean that OP was planning on selling/giving away the kittens

You do know that there are cat breeders, right? People who professionally breed pedigreed cats for people who want to pay thousands of dollars for a particular kind of cat rather than adopting a mixed breed for nothing or next to nothing? That's probably not the case here, since I think a breeder would be careful not to let this happen, but still not every litter of kittens is the result of irresponsibility. But even if this litter was an accident, I don't think OP deserves this. I accidentally

You just judge. So what her cat got pregnant. How you get mad at her for her cat getting pregnant? You should be mad your mother got pregnant with your dumb fuckin ass. She should of ate you then threw you the fuck up cause that's how unpleasant you are. Nasty and all.

You want my opinion on cat breeders and people who want "purebred" cats? Selfish the lot of them. There is no functional difference between breed like dogs which are bred for working conditions. It's entirely aesthetic. There is 4 cats per person in the USA alone. Try working on the flip side at a shelter... Even a no kill sanctuary seeing how many cats need be euthanized because they are injured beyond any other form of help after people tired of them and literally thrown them out li

Thanks 49. I've seen some horrible things in over a decade of working with cat shelters and sanctuaries both kill and non kill. You never get over seeing healthy kittens euthanized because the shelter is over full, there is no homes and its more humane than the only available placement- in research labs. Wonder how many "breeders" know the numbers of "free to good home" that end up used for research labs, or thrown in the trash literally. Anyone who thinks I'm unreasonable, t
