5. Irresponsible cat owner. Bad enough to let a cat loose outside. Worse to let it out with no collar.

6. It's a shame the owner doesn't have any protective impulse regarding this wonderful cat. n/t

9. As the owner of a black cat, I know you can't keep them in nor

in a collar. My Benny has been chipped though since I can't keep a collar on him, and he knows to stay out of the street just like that kitty does. If he's fifteen years old, I'd say the owner has been taking good care of him.

11. Oh, hell, by stating the obvious about the cat being 15, you're taking away the complainers' fun.



It looks like a great cat with a great life. It's still in one piece.

Damn, sometimes I shake my head so much, it's bound to come off one of these days.

16. Complainers? Please. Just because a cat has lived to be 15 doesn't mean

 

something bad could happen anytime.

I think that woman is irresponsible and the news show that did that story was irresponsible, too.

12. I agree that his owner is taking good care of him

but she'd be taking even better care of him by not letting him out. Yes, if one wants to keep their cats in, they can keep them in. I am the boss of my cats, so they don't go out.

15. Aww, I have not one but two black cats. They are strictly indoor cats

 

and they wouldn't have it any other way. It's dangerous out there for cats.

They are both curled up together next to me as I type this.

18. Mine just came in, but if I don't do what he wants I sometimes

end up in the ER. He's very dominant and aggressive so when he wants out, I have to let him out. The vet told me I had to let him have his way or I would have to put him down if he kept biting me. But as long as he is king, we get along fine. It still involves going out. Fortunately, he's smart enough to stay in overnight while it's dark. He knows there are predators out there who would like him for a snack. He's survived almost twelve years so I think he's got his street smarts or in this case field smarts going for him.

14. A collar on an outdoor cat can kill the cat. Heck, a collar on an indoor cat

can be dangerous. Have you ever seen a cat get its teeth caught in a collar? I have. It happened quite often until I got rid of the collars.

13. Precious ;-)

Just like humans, each are different in their own unique way. I'd say his master has taken very good care of him if he's 15 yrs old. I used to have a black cat. My son named him Einstein, because he was the smartest in the litter (smartest, because he did everything "first", i.e. before any of his 5 siblings")
