    Before going ga-ga over domestic pets consider too their negative side, something for which humans must carry total responsibility.  

    Don't get me wrong.  I love cats and dogs.  But we allow our pet cats to wander far-and-wide as if they were still in the wild.  They mark their territories by spraying anything and everything, leaving a foul stench, particularly from tom cat pee.  They are free to crap on neighbours' gardens, something they do daily in the same places, leaving a sticky mess that ruins plants, grass and gardens.  Then the neighbours are left having to clean it up and worse still they get it on their hands when gardening - uggghhh ! And cats kill wild birds in uncountable numbers.  

      Dogs are often taken out to be 'emptied' on footpaths, verges and parks.  They cock their legs and piddle on just about anything.  Their crap is foul and a health hazard to children not to mention the smell and having to poke it from shoe soles, often at the most inconvenient times such as when we've been walking or in my own case, out running.  Irresponsible owners are often not in control of their dogs either on or off their leashes.  Those dogs may attack other dogs, kids and even adults.   They regularly kill humans, both inside and outside the home. They are always a potential threat to me when I'm running - you ever tried to deal with a dog biting at your legs and ankles? - and a potential threat whenever they are off leash and unsupervised

    It's owners who must shoulder all the responsibility, of course.  Animals just do what their nature drives them to do.  Responsible owners are not the problem.

    mac, I agree with what you posted, owners must be responsible for their pets, get them
    spayed/neutered, clean up after them, my cat stays indoors where she stays safe and isn't
    out killing birds.

    I'm such an animal lover that I'm a vegetarian.

    I admire your approach and commitment.  We've always had cats in our UK home and like most others' cats they had full freedom.  In the wild long ago cats lived free and natural balances applied.  Now they live with humankind and there are no natural balances.  Our high density housing sees a vast population of cats behaving in ways that are inappropriate and highly destructive.  I didn't used to see things that way and here in the USA cats don't have so much freedom for reasons such as them being prey for larger wild animals. (I expect it's similar in Canada?) 
    That helps the bird population so nowadays I find I'm in agreement with not allowing cats to roam free - that's quite a turn-around for me.

    My cat is quite happy to stay in, when I leave the door open, the most she does is to sit 
    there and look out. I have a neighbour whose cat got hit by a car, and there are always
    dogs running loose.

    You can see, though, why I wondered?

    Yes, :giggles: 

    the whole animal, veggie, dog poop debate is something very close to my heart. I have very close ties to animals and have seen both sides, from the intensive farming to the home rearing and killing to food, also vivisection and animal rescue work. cat .

    Bad owners, bad farmers, ignorance, innocence. Bring back the dog licence!  Well at least from 2016 all dogs in the Uk will have to be microchipped.
