how come letting cats be "outside cats" is bad? :O legitimately curious

this is the only post on it i could find on my blog

also the post doesnt really go into it but “outdoor cats” are also doing MASSIVE damage to wild bird populations which is probably the most important reason in the big picture. 

but otherwise its basically most “outdoor cats” actually have very poor quality of life and if you cant take care of a cat indoors then you shouldnt have a cat

Tiny, wet Black Bear (Ursus americanus) spots something on the ground - a large male bear - and recognizes the danger. The cub scurried higher up into the tree, where the thin branches would support its weight, but not that of a larger bear. Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary, Orr, Minnesota.

Vicious predators native to the vast and desolate prairies of Manitoba, Canadian Panthers have successfully spread to the entirety of Turtle Island. Encounters with these ferocious felidae almost always conclude calamitously, and they are believed to be responsible for the complete destruction of several small communities in rural Ontario. Above is the last photograph taken by an as-yet unidentified photographer, capturing the moment just before a Canadian Panther attacked and killed them.


Let A Horrifying Spider Climb Down Your Throat, And 4 Other Plans For A Perfect Day In Sydney

Sydney, Australia is rich in both natural and man-made attractions, and 24 hours simply isn’t enough time to do and see everything this incredible city has to offer! If you’ve only got one day to spend in Sydney, here are the five things you absolutely have to do to get the most out of your visit.

1. Go to jail for impersonating an Australian: Americans love practicing their Australian accents, but in Sydney, it’s illegal to impersonate an Australian if you aren’t one. So if you walk up to a cop and say, “Throw another shrimp on the barbie,” just be aware that you’ll probably end up spending life in prison without the possibility of parole.

2. Let a horrifying spider climb down your throat: Australia is known for having some pretty diverse and dangerous wildlife, and if you’ve only got one day to spend in Sydney, then we recommend heading out into the wilderness, finding a spider, and letting it crawl down your throat and into your lungs. There’s no better way to get the authentic Sydney experience!

3. Visit the Sydney Aquarium and give the stingray that killed the Crocodile Hunter a spanking: Every day, thousands of tourists and native Australians alike visit the Sydney Aquarium to teach the stingray that killed “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin a lesson by spanking it firmly on its behind. You can’t visit Sydney without giving that asshole of a stingray a whupping on its rubbery, slimy ass.

4. Buy a koala—they’re only $4, and they’re light: Koalas are not only cheap, but they barely weigh anything at all. An animal at the perfect intersection of price and weight, there’s really no excuse not to pick one up on your trip to Sydney.

5. Visit St. Mary’s Cathedral, the closest thing Sydney has to a Home Depot: If you’re jonesing for a Home Depot experience in the land down under, your best bet is a visit to St. Mary’s Cathedral. While the building is a twin-spired Catholic church and not a home-improvement big-box store, it’s as close as you’re going to get.
