Our rescue Maine **** cat Frank is like the one in the article (neutered and still chases the spayed girls) but no one has offered to trade firewood for him.

Loved the article!

Or is that kittendling?

pretty good. My nephew is supposed to get me placed with a vet that does the jobs for $30/$20 regarding sex. Ive been after him for over a month, and he hasn't made or got an appointment for me yet. It has to be done with someone with a town address where they live.

I've been told: "You are what you eat."

I don't really want to be evil.
Once in the 70s and again in the 90s we had restaurants shut down here for serving cats as chicken. It makes me wonder if they would have been shut down if they offered cat instead of calling it chicken.

Chickens CANNOT be much more expensive
to purchase or prepare than free alley cats.


Certainly not as much trouble......

Beaks, loose feathers and toenails-vs-fangs, flying fur and flesh-shredding talons.


Of course......maybe there's less waste with cats?

You guys have gone way off on a tangent, haven't you?! The story is not in the least about eating cats! Sheesh!

The going rate around here is 3, one year old chickens for a bundle of slabs from the local sawmill. I had extra chickens and the sawyer had his chickens disappear so we traded. The bundle of slabs was about 3/4 of a full cord of pine firewood.

Sorry but I have no data on the exchange rate of cats for firewood. The dog kills every cat that wanders withing range.

Actually, if you dry them well, they burn about like those "logs" you can get in the grocery store. Just light the tail, and they provide about 4 hours of beautiful flickering flames.
