  6. One of many nasty diseases passed onto humans by cats.

    I’m not a cat hater but care needs to be taken with any animal that spends a great deal of time out and about, particularly predators and scavengers. That includes feral humans.

    Bullshit, the covid 19 ‘vaccine’ will kill the parasite….the death of the host is inconsequential.

  9. What really pisses me off is neighbors who let their friggin cats run loose so they can shit in my yard. I don’t blame the cat, I blame the damn cat owners.

  10. Probably PETA or the Commie’s trying to stop us from eating meat. 😡

    Isn’t that just like them with the fearmongoring and the bleeding heart’s. They are bound and determined to get us to eat bugs.🦗
    No thanks these people suffer from mental illness.

    Wasn’t there a bunch of meat recalled lately? 🤔 Some of those news articles makes me distrust the government even more.

    Well I’ll continue to eat cow, pig, chicken and fish and never get the clot shot. 😉
