Out of the Blue

I've been helping my neighbor's sister treat his cat for various ailments while my neighbor is on vacation. These treatments include administering a subcutaneous dose of saline every other day. The questionable joy of sticking an unhappy cat with a needle has fallen on me since this is something I have experience with, having provided the same treatment for my own cat when he fell ill years ago. Of course, as immortalized in the Seinfeld where Morty goes to work for Elaine at J. Peterman's, the elderly often like to get an early start, and today's call came at the crack of dawn, so that cat managed to get her full serving of saline before I had even a portion of my serving of coffee.

If people hunt to eat, then that's cool.

Equally, some hunting is necessary to keep some animal populations in control.

However, the point is both have to be humane. Guns are good for this (and yes, I realise I was arguing against guns in another thread, but that was in the context of handguns etc) as if you know what you're doing you can kill an animal very quickly and easily.

I'm against hunting for sport, or "fun". Killing an animal should not be fun simply for the sake of inflicting harm on something. Certainly not if it's for the means of culling - that's a clinical thing, you're there to do a job. Hence why the whole "cat killing with shotguns" business was so outrageous, because the writer clearly seemed to enjoy it solely for the sake of inflicting harm and pain on animals.

I've lost my point.

I tell you what is horrendous - fox hunting with dogs in England. That's barbaric. That could be done with guns quite easily.
