Where is it actually illegal to let your cat out? Smells like BS.
>>
>>3139197
Most everywhere with rule of law. You're letting your animal roam free. It falls under leash laws and stuff regarding livestock.

That's not to say it's ever enforced.
>>
>>3139197
Most places have general laws pertaining to leashed animals, but I've heard of a few counties and problem areas with cat-specific ones. >>3139224 is right that they're not directly enforced much (probably because it's hard to) but I know a couple people who've reported people out of spite because the cats were destroying their garden and killing their rabbits. The owners were actually fined.

>cat owners are evil for letting their cats outside
>cat owners are evil for keeping their cats inside and forcing them to shit in a tray

Also, um, sweetie, something being illegal in some shithole state of the land of the """free""" doesn't mean it's morally wrong or illegal in developed countries.

Are you retarded? These points arent mutually exclusive. Just because your cat is outside doesn't mean he's getting enough stimulation and bonding time (play with your fucking cat), doesn't mean he's not overfed, and independent of these points, you should scoop your litter at LEAST every day so it doesn't smell like ass. Go to the cat litter thread that's up right now. Half the posters in there do it once to twice a week
>>
>>3139150
Sounds way better than letting it rot away like a piece of decoration that gets fed the cheapest diet availabe and on a strict limitation just so it can't fight his mind numbing boredom at least with eating.
Most pets end up like that after the owner looses interest, most times even locked up in a cage or room. Outdoor cats can at least move into a better home.
>>
>>3139713
This. They might have some entertainment for when you're at work so you can keep an active cat even if 3 hours playtime are too much but if you can't be bothered to bond with them at all they'll eventually just leave.
>>
>>3139600
Actually not. It is legal in shitholes, and highly illegal in first world countries

based as fuck, fuck pet lovers they have no idea what actual nature is about.
>>
>>3139950
Sadly this.
Most pet owners (especially dog and cat owners) have little to no idea about nature, thus you hear bullshit "cat eats bird, it is natural", etc.
Birdfags (especially autistic kind) know more about nature, but they usually don't give a fuck.
I wonder if aquarium fags give a fuck.

Still a little bit more than normie pet owner tier.

People don't scoop every day? My cat has her litter box where I keep the washing and drying machine, so luckily the smell of detergent always helps keeps the smell down after she takes a fat shit. Regardless, I clean her bowl and scoop her litter box daily since I thought cats hate dirty stuff. Thought it was common knowledge.
>>
>>3140076
People just lack common sense. Go check the litter thread up right now
>>
>>3140075
Nah, most people that keep fish don’t want to know anything beyond what looks good to them and the minimum to keep them alive. Honestly, even that is expecting too much from the average aquarium owner.
>>
>>3140076
There was a thread once by an anon that asked advice on how to get his flatmates cats to use the litterboxes again and it turned out the cats litterboxes had more shit than litter in them.
No matter how bad you think owners can get, somewhere there are worse ones.

Even when they're hygienic people the smell is still so strong. My best friends lives with his mom and their apartment is flawlessly clean, except for the smell on their kitchen, which is were the sand box is. The crazy thing is that I'm 100% sure they can't smell it, but it's super obvious to anyone who doesn't live there.

Except that when this happens the owner is usually punished and the dog is put down. Catfags are never brought to justice for the many crimes their disgusting vermin commit while outside. Legally speaking any cat that is outdoors should be considered "feral" and therefore killable.

Those are playful or affectionate bites, it's not actually trying to hurt him

>>3142277
The dogs are almost never put down in maiming incidents. Dogfags flock to the internet to sign petitions to save the disgusting face maulers and it usually works. I don't like feral cats killing birds but a human life is more important. It should be legal to kill loose dogs of a certain size. Kicking the shit out of loose rat dogs should also be legal
>>
>>3142673
No sane person defends having feral dogs around, and people with outside dogs are generally shunned as bad owners.
But absolute fucks will let their pet cats walk around outside and fuck shit up but then get mad when you suggest that they reign in their pet.

Give me a fucking break. Western nations broke out in hysterics when Russia started culling those street dogs ahead of the Olympics
>>
>>3143610

1st world nations usually dont have an avid street dog population. Also, there's a difference between thinking dogs shouldn't be on the streets vs killing street dogs.

But
feral dogs = feral cats,
outdoor cats = dogs on unsupervised walks
The latter are usually neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, groomed, healthy, non-agressive and won't sit miserably in the streets or beg annoyingly for food since they get shelter, love and food at home.

The only nuisance is if they haven't learned to shit in places where it doesn't bother people.
>>
>>3139586
I would support this.
>>
If you cant bring your dog or cat with you on a vacation or trust a friend to take care of them boarding kennels exist. Some even take rabbits and birds.
>>
>>3141951
Why they keep it in the kitchen? I wouldnt eat there.
>>
>>3139150
lol my cat never shit inside
and was taught not to bring birds or mice inside
>>
>>3141951
>sand box
If the litter is anything like sand there's your reason.
The trick is to use litter that clumps well enough so after scooping there isn't a single crump left that had contact with urine or fecal matter and to choose a box big enough so urin or fecal matter won't ever touch the walls or the ground as well.
Or you throw out the entire sand with every scooping.

>>3143787
And depending on what they're cooking the cat sometimes might would rather use a box somewhere else. It's a strange combination.
>>
>>3139224
Police should slaughter cats outside of yards
