Looks like low self-esteem people love the boot-licking dogs more than they love cats, who are independent, have dignity. They are also clean, silent (almost) and are good for indoors keeping. Lately the dog walkers' numbers increase rapidly, new and new neighbors appear daily with dogs in the street; people who won't move a finger to even feed a street cat or help a homeless take the trouble to walk their dogs several times daily, even in bad weather. And they keep the dogs inside their condo apartments, whereas dogs stink when wet; often the dog walkers leave the poop in the public area, or if they pick it up, they put it into the small plastic bag, and then they throw it down on the sidewalk a few yards away. Me, I prefer cats to dogs. I had a small dog 20 years ago, it pissed on every inch of the carpet at home, barked and ran around so much that finally it got hit by a car. Since then I have cats and I love them. And what is this stupid habit here to put the cat outside, even in winter, for the night? Vanity of people works in favor of dogs, who are kept inside, while many cats are shut out from inside the house or apartment for the night. Is this "Canadian culture?" Bravo. Read the book or watch the movie "A Street Cat Named Bob" to see how lovely friends cats can be. And it's not fiction; it is based on a true story in London.

Canadians here in Vancouver Mt. Pleasant have no idea or the will to take good care of their cats. They put them outside the house for the night; I met several cats meowing at the entrance doors of apartment buildings, trying to get in (in the past week I met 2 cats like this). In the past few years I have seen a dozen postings of lost cats on lamp posts in the Mt. Pleasant area. 3 coyotes prowl the streets of Mt. Pleasant in the very early morning, they sometimes catch cats. At present I know half a dozen home cats that are put out into the street for the night; some of them are even hungry and they come to me, asking for a pet and food. I made friends with one black boy cat I call Ali Baba, who came to me day and night every day, asking for food too, and I thought he was a stray. I put him into a cage and took him to Vokra, this society that rescues abandoned cats. Within a few day Vokra called me on the phone, saying that this cat had an owner, who put him up for search on Craig's List, so Vokra returned him to the owner. And 2 days later Ali Baba was out in the street again, in rain and snow and frost (as he is now), and coming to me, asking for love and food. What is this dumb habit in Canada to shut the cat out for the night? And another idiocy of some Canadians is their fear of or hatred of critters (skunks, raccoons, even pigeons, starlings, squirrels, etc.) Some of them call pigeons "vermin" and squirrels "pests." (And they call each other and me "a..-holes). Where are the pioneers who made this country, who were not so pampered as to be scared of Nature? If their neighbor has a few hens (in Surrey, e.g.) they fear of health risks, and here at Mt. Pleasant some feed squirrels while others ordered recently their extermination, saying they caused house fires by chewing on cables. Oh, my. when I was young, in our area all neighbors had hens, and nobody talked about health risks. This "hazard" hysteria went so far that one housing maintenance guy told met that my doormat was a risk factor, I should remove it. Oh, my. You know what? Our greatest hazard are our own mean or dumb fellow men. OK, so, take care of your cat properly. I have just rescued a kitty about 6-8 months old, who had been thrown out into the street with her sister, who is still at large and I see her at times. There is problem with the cult of pets here - people seem to adore their dogs, there is ever more dog walkers 3 times a day; but cats are not properly taken care of.
