So, cats. They're basically the official animal of the internet. They're generally easier to train and take care of than, say, a dog; coupled with their all-around cuteness, this trait makes them an ideal pet (or, as some would say, the cat's meow) for many families. Sure, they can be ornery bastards, but that's part of the charm. Well, at least for us. Let's just say that mother nature isn't so smitten with kittens. The New York Times (And The Oatmeal, which pretty much called it) That's right: Kittens are the purrfect exterminators - and it's a serious cat-astrophe. Okay, sorry. Now that those are out of my system, let's continue. A fierce debate is raging between animal rights activists and environmentalists over what to do. While both sides agree that letting cats roam free is wildly irresponsible and damaging, what comes next is the big sticking point. Some have even proposed a gradual culling of the nation's cat population. Of course, with so many attached to their cuddly super predators, any such proposals would face one hell of a fight. The nation may be forced to decide which it values most: its fragile native ecosystems or the image macro-based economy of the internet. Hopefully a compromise can be reached sometime in the near future. Well, this is sort of depressing. Why don't you play us off, Keyboard Ca- oh. Oh. Uh... this is awkward.
