Here....Kitty, Kitty, Kitty! (Click)

Jonah has an article on a proposal being mulled in Wisconsin to let people shoot feral cats because they (the cats) are taking out such a large percentage of the local bird population.

I'm sorry but I find this story to be quite amusing, in part because of the whole Granny/Tweety/Sylvester image that Jonah conjures up, but also because of his larger point about how pure anthropomorphic emotionalism infects so much of the environmental debate. Call it the "Bambi Effect". Go ahead - it's been done many times before.

I feel it my place to stand up for the kitties rights. I plan on selling catnip to raise money to fund a bloated PAC to lobby for these cats, feral or not. Let me know if you want a dime bag of the stuff.

Lets let PETA go in and take all those kitties to their homes and have them go all over the place and leave a little surprise in their poted plant
