*****KatKwiz! - April 24 - May I give some points away?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
KatKwery: We already have eight players in contention for the superbowl but we have a long way to go. Jumping in with 2100 points was Monaxlisa for using only first. Other unpicked words were available, always, very, and never. Congratulations, Monaxlisa! 2100 points puts you in the thick of things.

I hereby go on record that I do not look to see who is in The Cat Lounge before posting.

Persi is presently in jail for biting me, his dad. He will remain there ten days. I know a lot of you have seen this, so l will make a math equation out of this. OK, cat gets ten days for biting one person. Me.
There is a story somewhere here on TSC that tells of a man from ____________ that received a ___________sentence in jail for KILLING a cat.

Clue: OK, what's the worst, biting somebody or killing somebody? (Yes, a cat has a body and is therefore a somebody.)

They say leaving a quarter tip on the table is far worse an insult than leaving no tip. This morning I was thinking giving a one day sentence was far worse (from the cat's perspective), than no sentence at all: http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21664

Nontheless, you were the first in with an answer (please pm me the link).
Congratulations!

Are crimes against cats punished the same as against dogs? In my link above, what would have been an apt punishment? If there are more cats than dogs in North America (there are), why do you see so many more dogs? Why do you see so many more dogs in movies than cats? Why do they say "it's raining cats and dogs" instead of "dogs and cats"?
post #12 of 29
IMO in all cases of killing an animal the person should receive the same punishment as if they had killed a human.

Actually, they say the biggest insult to a waitress is leaving a one-penny tip, face down. That shows that you didn't forget to tip her; you meant to do it. I've seen a few that deserved that.

There was recently a big flap in VA about abuse of cats not being the same as abuse of dogs. Dog abuse is a felony, but cat abuse is only a misdemeanor.

1. i don't think they are.
2. an apt punishment would have been imprisonment for the natural life of the cat, assuming it had not been killed [i like this for humans, too, to a certain extent.]
3. cats stay inside, dogs require walking.
4. because dogs are easier to work with.
5. it's alphabetical!

I have no clue if cat abuse and dog abuse are punished in the same manner. I think all animal cruelty should face serious consequences. It's like ASPCA says, "We Are Their Voice". Animals can't speak for themselves and we need to step in and make sure they get the justice they deserve.

I think you see more dogs 'cuz dogs are more sociable and trainable. My cats enjoy house guests, but they do NOT enjoy leaving the house. My dog is thrilled with any sort of outing so that is why you will see me more often with my dog than any of my cats. Same thing with movies, I'm guessing. Cats are so independent and I love them for it, but you just can't get a cat to do something they don't want to. With a dog you can pretty much ask them to do anything and they will!

You are right, there are many options. I should have specified the most outlandish one that could be visulized which I came across in the middle of the night since I was wide awake which is something that antibiotics do to you. I like the ones you found much beter than the one I found where the guy only got one day.
post #17 of 29
Yeah, I found that too. One day in jail, that's not a punishment.

First off, I am so sorry about Persi. He was just scared, poor thing.

I believe that crimes on all animals should be dealt with the same. I am not even sure I should answer your second question...I personally think the man should be drawn and quartered. He will learn no lesson at all. Like you said, a cat is still a living and breathing thing. I think punishment (sentencing) should be done as if a person was killed or abused. It really upsets and angers me that so many people disregard animals and treat them like trash. As for there seeming more dogs than cats, I would say it is because a lot more cats are kept indoors as well as feral colonies keep well hidden. They are nocturnal so they go out at night to do they hunting and such.
about your last question. I have never thought about that. I do not even have a thought about it.

Reminder: When I answer my own questions I do so before the five words are revealed AND without looking at other member's answers. I DO try and see how many words I can get in my answers as a way of steering newer players as to what is going on. If you are wondering what the superbowl is going to be like, well, I have revealed a portion of it.

It is almost considered acceptable to some to torture cats. When I was a kid, the thing to do was to tie two cat's tails together and throw them over a clothes line (I swear to God I had nothing to do with this.) I will just repeat what my mother told me over and over as a kid: That when it came to turning the other cheek, that had nothing to do with this. You see more dogs because most of us are city dwellers, cats tend to live in the country where the mice are. Ummm, why'd I ask that one, becuase they can pant? Cats are named first because they always get the bad rap.

PM me your link please - or actually do it right here. Blondrebel forgot where she found it and I darn near did, too. You are next in line.

I should have worded the question the worst case of injustice - four years sounds kind of fair, The one day one just infuriated me.

See I was a bit confused as to what you were looking for. I was thinking you meant Persi had to spend ten days in jail for biting you, but this Ontario guy only spent one day for killing a cat. There is no justice or fairness in that.

This is the one I had this morning but I left myself open for other answers. If glitch doesn't show up with the link to where she got the answer, you will be the winner.

BTW, tomorrow's KatKwiz is going to be insanely difficult with no math involved.

Let me give you a clue (of course this was a KatKwiz question before). I took a poll and virtually nobody does what I do (and I am not watching for KatKwiz).

Try this: Post something yourself and then start clicking on New Posts, waiting for it to show up. You may be waiting quite a while. Now post a message and run as fast as you can and click on Quick Links and then Today's Posts and it will already be there!But, being the nasty guy that I am, I work in invisible mode to circumvent that little ploy.

I sent you PM's last night with links, but blondrebel got it anyway. I will post the links again if you want me to, but I dont see the point!

post #28 of 29
me either, it never asked for the links in the question and it was very open ended. i dont care about the points, but i do care that the game is fair for everyone, a deadline on replying with the links to an answer is NOT fair to those of us who dont sit around on our computer 24/7 we all have different lives and priorities, kids, work, family, friends, house, pets, social lives, etc. yes i am usually around at 2am, because i usually get home around then and check in, then i have to do my chores and get ready for bed so i can get up early again the next morning. at any rate, here is my link that i didnt forget, http://thecatsite.com/forums/showthr...=killed+kitten and now i am going to bed, i am NOT feeling well and i am getting rather grouchy, i tend to do that when i am sick and pms'n at the same time.

Huh?? Check your pm box, starting to think that maybe no one should win today!
