March 10, 2007: The cat wants in



Another set that's too wide for your browsers, but I can't help but post them
full size.

xoxoxoBruce sends these along, apparently from an E-mail forward?
The text in the email:

Quote:
These pictures were taken by a guy in Martin, SD.
Pictures from his kitchen onto his patio deck.
I googled "a guy in Martin, SD" and found this link to
the same four shots
, along with the following text:

Quote:
These pictures were taken by a guy in Martin, SD. He took
the pictures from his kitchen looking out onto his patio deck
after he discovered the mountain lion watching his children
playing on the kitchen floor.
Something about that last sentence pinged a note in my head.
Aha: four days ago Snopes researched this one, and the result?
Quote:
We spoke with Dave Hamilton of the Missouri Department of
Conservation's Mountain Lion Response Team, who has been tracking
these pictures, and he informed us that they were actually taken
back around 2001 or 2002 by Dr. Dave Rogers at his home in Lander,
Wyoming (with the detail about the big cat's "watching his little
kids on the kitchen floor" being a bit of fictitious sensationalism
added by unknown hands).
Wyoming, South Dakota, it doesn't really matter.
Because you know if there had been kids in the house, this cat would have been
watching them.

its like seeing a big spider right next to your hand and getting that momentary "HOLY SHIT" feeling. you look out and see big fucking teeth and eyes watching you.



SPUCK  Sunday Mar 11 07:16 AM

Kitty needs a load of 00 buckshot.

Or for you softies a load of rock salt so he figures out humans and houses are bad juju.



Aliantha  Sunday Mar 11 08:15 PM

If I saw a cat like that hanging around my back door there's no way I'd be bothering to ring the response team. I'd just shoot it. Same as I'd hit a snake over the head with a shovel.

I guess I'd have to have a gun first, but if I lived where there'd be a chance of animals like that hanging around, I'd have one.

In the mean time, I DO have my trusty shovel under the house.



Griff  Sunday Mar 11 08:26 PM

Those kitty cats are sposed to be making a comeback around here. I'm not so thrilled with the prospect.

Today I heard about a new accidental introduction here, Russian boars... mmm... pass the cabbage.

Let us hope you never live anywhere more wild than suburbia, then. Geeze.

How do you accidentally introduce a Russian boar anywhere? Was someone trying to cash in on the potbellied pig market and got the wrong strain of swine?


zippyt  Sunday Mar 11 11:17 PM

Well you know how it goes ,
"aww this little cutie could NEVER grow into those bigole' feets !!!"

A guy was setting up a hunting preserve but you know how pigs are on fences. The story goes that he managed to catch all but ten... Pigs can breed what 2 or 3 times a year? My neighbor shot three, although one was carrying 6 little ones. This sounds like a rural legend doesn't it? I've got verification from another source though.

Griff, the safari master guide. Boar hunts for the rich and famous. Don't go with Cheney though.

The cats will take care of the boar problem....hopefully.


Happy Monkey  Monday Mar 12 01:15 PM

I know an old lady, who swallowed a boar.

Oh! What a...

Because it's hard to drag a corpse AND carry a shovel.


bluecuracao  Monday Mar 12 06:22 PM

Aww, what a beautiful kitty! I bet he's good at keeping the raccoons and field mice in check.

Snakes rarely come into the house, and we live in a high set house. It's semi enclosed so that it can be locked up securely, and you can walk under there too. It's where our laundry area is, and it's where we keep all our tools and gardening impliments...including shovels!


rkzenrage  Monday Mar 12 09:26 PM

Part of my job on our ranch was to kill as many boar as I could. It could have been a full-time job had I had the time.
They are amazing animals.



Aliantha  Monday Mar 12 10:04 PM

My father used to shoot wild pigs for a station owner west of the city we live in. I remember going out there with him when I was a kid. I used to love rounding up the pigletts when the sows were killed. Unfortunately, they used to disappear over night usually.

Welcome to the Cellar, mate. I'm embarrassed it's been twelve hours and 9 posts since you posted and nobody said howdy. Must be the wildcats and snakes got 'em distracted.

You must be kidding?! When they're in your yard staring into your house they aren't looking for mice! They are eating your cats and dogs and you or your wife when you take the garbage out. A cat this unafraid is something to be very afraid of. As he's not out going for his staple which are supposed to be deer.

xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Mar 13 04:27 PM

It's still a cat and curious about everything. They'll check out everything that gets their attention, until satisfied or frightened away.
I'm sure they question whether anything new is a danger or not. But I wonder if they question whether anything new is prey, if they have a reliable chow line?

This cat isn't a big deal. Per the Snopes article:

Quote:
Wyoming is a western state with a population of several thousand cougars. Dr. Rogers lives in a riparian corridor with a good cougar habitat and plenty of deer, so sightings are not surprising in the area.
Seeing curious wild animals on the back patio isn't all the unusual when you live in a wild area. Nothing to be afraid of, until some dumbass starts feeding the thing.


xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Mar 13 04:48 PM

I wouldn't go so far as saying nothing to be afraid of. Any time you have the chance of startling a critter, big enough to kill you, there is something to be afraid of. That said, they aren't usually a problem if you exercise reasonable caution not to sneak up on them.
My Mom's neighborhood has a problem with bears in the yard, tearing up the bird feeders.



Aliantha  Tuesday Mar 13 08:20 PM

Honestly, I don't know why people complain about the poisonous animals in Australia. I think I'd rather die from snakebite than be ripped apart by a bear or lion. Imagine being eaten while you're still able to watch.

They eat mice, too...along with your pet cats and dogs. Hey, if you're that afraid of them, live in a big city, like I do.

If you're taken by one of these, you will not go gentle into that good night.

awww...you just need to poke those pesky buggers in the eye and you'll be right. Either that or punch them in the head...apparently...

If you see one of these hanging around your patio, you have got some bigger problems, however.


Clodfobble  Thursday Mar 15 09:09 AM

Holy hell people, stop quoting the damn picture!



Aliantha  Friday Mar 16 03:20 AM

but it's a nice picture. Besides, I didn't think of taking it out.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Mar 16 08:32 PM

It just slows down the thread loading for people with slow connections. No problem, all better.
