119. he explained "misbehaving" and it wasn't for simply breaking a rule you have for your kitty
that he used the term "misbehaving" when it was clear at the start and explicitly clear in later posts that it was when you are confronted with a cat that whether meaning harm or not, presented a serious or potentially serious danger to you --and what you should do in that situation.

flvegan you are absolutely being unfair to the poster because you are using his word which he used artfully but certainly explained then and subsequently what was meant as if he was advocating beating an animal for scratching the furniture.

you should stop and try another argument. in a situation of self-defense if your position is that you should not do something to stop/prevent the injury to yourself if it means violent force against the animal, then state that opinion, but you won't do that, but you are arguing against a poster who is saying, "hey, that's how you handle it". yet when asked you won't simply say, "yeah, don't harm the animal even in that instance" or pretending not to know that dawg was talking about when confronted with injurious force by a large, wild animal.

like i said, you aren't making a fair argument because you are projecting an opinion on the person you are arguing against that that poster did not make nor intend (i'm not reading his mind, he explained himself).

play fair flvegan.
