Backwoodsman BS: Domestication of Dogs (79* d) RE: BS: Domestication of Dogs 27 Aug 21

I think youíve missed the point, Dave.

Yes, I pick up after my dog anywhere and everywhere he takes a dump, and I do pick up other dogsí shit if thereís a pile close by when Iím doing so. Iím not suggesting you, or any cat-owner, should pick up other peopleís catsí shit, but it would be nice if cat owners did what they expect dog-owners to do and pick up their catsí shit anywhere and everywhere they take a dump. My dog never steps outside the confines of our garden without my wife or me being with him. How many cat-owners even know where their cats are all of the time, let alone where they take a dump when theyíre roaming?

As Iíve said a number of times on Ďdogí threads, Iím not anti-cat, Iíve owned cats, held them in high affection, and still do feel an strong affinity with them. But I do find it galling that cat-owners use un-picked-up dog shit as a weapon to beat responsible dog-owners like me with, when thereís plenty of un-picked-up cat shit lying around, including on my property, that no-one makes any effort to pick up.

And cat shit stinks just as bad as dog-shit, if not worse, when itís on the sole of your shoe and you trample it on your hall carpet, as I did a few weeks ago after unknowingly treading in it while reading the gas-meter! ;-)

But we could go over and over this ground, which is pointless. So Iím leaving it here.
