It's been a while since I've visited, stuff like this is partly why I stay away so long. MA, you appear to know very little about feral cats lives in the city. Posting that video about 2 cats fighting, while birds dive bombed them, had nothing to do with the situation. You may have thought it appropriate but as someone who knows a bit more about feral cats in this area, I can tell you it wasn't. The person who recorded that video was an idiot, they thought it was funny to watch and posted it online so others could be amused by it.
It's not funny, it's not amusing. This poor dead cat was not a "casualty of war", it was a casualty of human cruelty and indifference. Feral cats live very tough lives, the lucky ones find people who feed and TNR (trap, neuter, return) them. The unlucky ones are trapped by assholes who bring them to our reprehensible excuse for an animal shelter, where they are euthanized. Usually after being held in a cage long enough to get a URI, just to add insult to injury. Or used as "practice" by some mouth breather who thinks a vicious dog is a symbol of his minuscule manhood. Or they get completely squashed by a car, like one of my ferals on Franklin Ave and one of our feral kittens up Bergen.
A lot of the cats on the street in this neighborhood were dumped by selfish, irresponsible wastes of life, who buy $200 sneakers but refuse to spend half that on their pet. The abandoned cats have it the hardest because they have no idea how to fend for themselves. Never mind that shitty cat food is not expensive, or that people on public assistance have access to free spay/neuter and vaccinations.
We all have our "things" that get us riled up, this is mine. It makes me furious how animals are treated in this neighborhood, how people see a cat on the street in the freezing cold and just walk by without a second thought (or first, usually). The idiot dog breeders are another issue entirely. This poor dead cat didn't deserve to die in the street, anthropoid was kind enough to post here hoping to bring closure to the cat's owner (if it had one).
Go do something useful.
