Re: 50 Uses for Feral Cats!

Hamsters, who mentioned hamsters? This cracks me up.

Re: 50 Uses for Feral Cats!

Using their claws for fixing the hairdo after a day's sail: cat-a-comb;

Sucking water from the bottom of the fuel tank: cat-heter;

When tied mouth-to-tail as dock lines, the results when slack: cat-en-ary;

Using their teeth to practice your scrimshaw: hobby cat;

If found piled upon the roof of a pub with beer only on tap, does that mean the bar is a cat-he-draw-all?

Re: 50 Uses for Feral Cats!

This is an article posted in 1940 by Willis Powell,...

"Glorious Opportunity to Get Rich--We are starting a cat ranch in Lacon with 100,000 cats. Each cat will average 12 kittens a year. The cat skins will sell for 30 cent each. One hundred men can skin 5,000 cats a day. We figure a daily net profit of over $10,000. Now what shall we feed the cats? We will start a rat ranch next door with 1,000,000 rats. The rats will breed 12 times faster than the cats. So we will have four rats to feed each day to each cat. Now what shall we feed the rats? We will feed the rats the carcasses of the cats after they have been skinned. Now Get This! We feed the rats to the cats and the cats to the rats and get the cat skins for nothing."

Re: 50 Uses for Feral Cats!

If you bought 50 foot of catamaran and filled it full of cats - could name it "Pussy Galore".

Re: 50 Uses for Feral Cats!

If you shave your cat bald except for a thin line of fur up the middle you would have a Brazilian.........cat .

Re: 50 Uses for Feral Cats!
