  • How can I prevent neighbor's cat from killing birds in our yard?

    I love cats, one of my most fave animals ever. However, I don't believe cats should ever be allowed outside (unless on a leash and well supervised). Cats are not native species and are incredibly destructive to wildlife. As was mentioned, it is cat's natural instinct to hunt. However, as they are clearly being well fed in their homes, housecats have no need to hunt. They are perfectly happy being inside, provided that they are adequately stimulated. And, cats who do go outdoors have a significantly shorter lifespan. Unfortunately, humans suffer from personifying animals thinking things like "i like variety in my diet and i like going outside so cats must be the same." This is unfortunate both for the cats and for the surrounding wildlife.

    Clearly your neighbour has no regard for the environment or for their neighbours (you), otherwise they wouldn't be letting their cat out, especially knowing that it's killing birds in your yard. Unfortunately there is not a whole lot you can do. You could try putting some rinds from citrus fruit or citrus oils around the perimetre of your yard, or at least near where the birds hang out. Citrus supposedly repels cats.

    good luck!

    I think it's safe to say that many of us face criticism about our food styles from enough people in our every day lives who are SAD. And that part of the reason we joined this forum is to have support not MORE people criticizing us and pushing their way of life on us.

    So maybe be happy that you've found a way of eating that works great for you (that's wonderful :) BUT try being supportive and open-minded to the fact that there are other ways of living and eating and that we're all in this together.

    Hey pearjoy (cute name!!),

    Most of the nut recipes can be made with pumpkin or sunflower seeds instead (with regards to pates, creams and cheeses), hemp seed is quite good also. I love salads (always have), especially with sprouts. And I really like making raw taco wraps (collard green for the wrapper, stuffed with raw homemade salsa, guacamole, lettuce, and curried lentil sprouts). Lentil sprouts are super easy to do and I sprout mine for a while - until both the leafy green bit and the root emerge, which makes them softer and easier to chew and all round delicious.

    You could do raw soups with tomato, cucumber (can you eat non-sweet fruits like tomato and cucs?), spinach

    It's really just about getting enough calories but you can easily get there with avocado, oils and seeds. Like 1TBSP of oil has like 120 calories so wouldn't worry about it.

    ok I've made myself hungry now...
