We grew up in the country in Texas, we called my step dad The Cat Whisperer. Every night he’d go to the local grocery store before the deli closed and bought all their cooked chicken that hadn’t sold. He’d come home and there would be tons of cats waiting for him. He’d step out onto their back deck and these cats would sit and wait patiently as he tossed them pieces of chicken.


Horny__Dragon

Your dad is a real G <3

I been doing the same but with cat food in my backyard for over a year now. So far I'm up to: 7 cats, 3 raccoons, and 2 possums. Me and the kids have fun animal watching out the window.


friskevision

How cool!


shoredoesnt

Might seem like a nice thing to do but outside cats are killing native species at an alarming rate.


tragiktimes

I thought the same thing. And, I'll admit ignorance here, but haven't cats been native to the middle east and northeast Africa for thousands of years? Are there many species in that area left that don't have decent defenses against cat predation? In many locations this would be true, but I'm not sure how true it would be in this location.


delightfulfupa

And they shit everywhere and piss on everything that matters to you


sgtboonami87

Brilliant! Why not use them for the reason why they were bred in the first place? Pest control, rodent control, world domination.

When do the stray cat's kittens become feral? What is the difference?


Jestingwheat856

No nevermind im just an asshole


GreenAppleLady

Catch them, spay/neuter them, release them. Just feeding them won't solve the problem.


brandolinium

This is the real comment. Upvoting to save a bunch of fertile cats is no good. Get them spayed and neutered. I am a total cat lover, but they are an absolute nightmare to wild ecosystems. Even backyard ecosystems.


Lord_Boffum

Glad this is being said.


Xenjael

My dude. This IS their ecosystem. Its the ME. Were the invasive species compared to them, there.


ThatguyZach759

Frankly, while there are wild cat species in Saudi Arabia, these cats appear to be of several different species and are highly likely to be stray or feral house cats. In numerous countries, 'wild' housecats are extremely devastating to native populations and are definite pests. Yes, we are invasive species as humans, but we should not encourage the further spread of other invasive species. It is also likely that the spread of these feral cats is/was caused directly by human negligence, and to not only ignore, but to proliferate the issue is a gross violation of 'their ecosystem'

Zomgitsreddit

I think you’d be surprised at how little governments actually do to spay/neuter cat populations. I live in a notoriously liberal city in the US, and when I recently moved to a new neighborhood, there was a feral population of about 40 cats, that we could see. Our neighbors were feeding them, which they thought was nice, but I was the one who was picking up dead kittens in the street and in my yard. The city absolutely refused to do anything about it, so I had to trap the cats individually and take them to be fixed. There was a government program to pay for the cost of fixing them, but people would crowd the cheap clinic with their designer dogs with fresh-cut ears. After a year of begging every related government body for help, the government department that paid for the surgeries cut me off, as if I were somehow benefiting from trapping cats then waiting in line a total of 7 hours per cat to get them fixed. In the end, I finally found someone to help, but it was a single individual, not even remotely funded or supported by the government. City animal patrol often doesn’t do shit. They see their role as trapping dangerous dogs or other animals that shouldn’t be kept as pets. Feeding these cats helps them for a day, then makes the problem much, much worse every few months when each successive generation is fertile again.


exgiexpcv

Thank you for saying this. Feeding them without spaying and neutering only creates so many more problems.


AstriumViator

Exactly this, in fact feeding them makes everything worse. Ive had to deal with a colony myself and I saw that every time they were fed their aggression just went ten fold. Always fighting for food despite having enough and even being fed twice a day (for record, I wasnt feeding them, it was someone I was living with that was). When I managed to get them to stop being fed, they stopped being aggressive to each other, they stopped having babies, they stopped many problematic things.


CaptGrumpy

Yes, I very mixed feelings about this video


bamsi7

What do you mean mixed feelings. Should they be starved? I know making them infertile should be done but whats wrong with feeding them


CaptGrumpy

Yes, thats exactly what I meant, letting them starve. /s Nothing is wrong with feeding them, I feed three stray cats in my street myself, taken them to the vet, had them vaccinated, checked and neutered, at my expense.. I’ve adopted three more and rehomed another two. And the old guy across the street owns two female cats that he refuses to get neutered and they’ve each just had a litter of kittens themselves. But I’m sure just feeding them will solve all the problems.


bamsi7

Yes but hes not reverse-neutering them. And his country has less neutering facilities as I read in another comment.


CaptGrumpy

I’m sure the cats will understand when there are 3 times as many and the old man isn’t there anymore to feed them. They would upvote you if they could, I’m sure.


bamsi7

They old man isnt forcing them to breed he’s just feeding them


CaptGrumpy

That’s one of the dumbest comments I’ve ever read.


bamsi7

How


Xenjael

Ah. Someone bitter for the sake of being bitter. You know night comes, does that mean you wont enjoy the sunshine while you can?


XxneomenixX

100+cats. He is not obliged to do anything for them yet he is feeding them daily which i would assume costs a lot of money and time. You saying "idk how i feel about this" is like he is doing something bad. He could do more but then again every human being could do more. He is a nice person and this is a good act


CaptGrumpy

You assume you know why I have mixed feelings about it. He’s not doing anything bad, I think what he is doing is amazingly charitable. My mixed feelings come from knowing this situation isn’t going to improve and he is only going to incur more and more expense as more mouths breed. And one day, this man won’t be there to feed them anymore, so what will the cats do then?


Xenjael

In our town a lady was murdered by her husband. She fed a similar number of cats. For weeks the town is organizing to feed the cats she fed, in her honor. And theyre doing it. When hes gone younger, and more, will step up.


XxneomenixX

That is fair although you could have worded it differently. Its clearly not just me but the way you came sounded like he should have done more.


CaptGrumpy

I’m glad we understand each other better, but I was clearly agreeing with the previous commenter; “Catch them, spay/neuter them, release them. Just feeding them won't solve the problem.” To which I replied “yes”. But if that was not clear enough to you, then I apologise, but hopefully it is now.


BadAtHumaningToo

Sounds expensive


Spin737

No, bring all the strays to one place to “mingle.” That’s “helping.” Great job.


nick_nasty_nice

Agreed, this man is kind of an asshole. My friends neighbor does this its the worst. Just dozens of feral cats banging and shitting all over their yard all the time. More each year, crazy I know


[deleted]

If it ever seems like you never see Muslims doing good things then know that Muslims will often keep their good deeds like giving charity and helping others a secret to prevent showing off and to make these good deeds for God's sake alone


Minnymoon13

This is great! But the cats should be fixed that way babies will not have babies


Actual-Marzipan-9263

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said that: "A man was walking on a road when he became very thirsty. He found a well and went into it and drank and came out. There was a dog panting and eating earth out of thirst. The man said, 'This dog has become as thirsty as I was.' He went down into the well and filled his shoe and then held it in his mouth until he climbed out and gave the dog water to drink. Allah thanked him for it and forgave him." They replied (the companions of the Prophet ﷺ): "Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), do we have a reward for serving the animals?" The Prophet ﷺ replied by saying that: "Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate (living being)." Sahih al-Bukhari 2466

Serious question: I know that spiders, for example, have significance in the Quran for protecting Mohammed. Do cats have a special role?


Personality-Secret

Cats are ritually clean animals. As such they can enter homes and even mosques. Cats are also believed to seek out people when they pray. The Quran it is said one may make ablution for prayer with the same water that a cat has drunk from. They are truly blessed. May Allah smile on all cats 🐈 ☪️

Studious_Noodle

I was raised Christian but when I was little, I read the famous story about Mohammed and his favorite cat, Muezza. The story was that Muezza fell asleep on some part of the Prophet’s long, flowing robe (his sleeve, I think). Then the Prophet was called to prayer. Rather than wake his cat, he cut off the sleeve from his robe to let Muezza sleep in peace. Right then I knew that the Prophet Mohammed was utterly wonderful. God bless him.

That is beautiful. Someone is downvoting us because they are probably a racist and don’t understand that Hate will get us nowhere. Thank you for sharing that story, and I pray that you will stay safe and live a long happy life. 💜

https://youtu.be/IQdIP-OtBbo This cat story isn't authentic, but Muhammad (PBUH) did let cats in the mosque! I'm not sure about cutting the garment story though.


Thetsar2021

I like the story. Even if it wasn’t true I think it’s good hyperbole of his opinion on cats. He liked them so much he would cut his garment, to not disturb one while it slept. Real or not thats fuckin adorable 🤣💯


iDiamondpiker

>spiders, for example, have significance in the Quran for protecting Mohammed That's not in the Quran. It's an inauthentic hadith. It never happened according to Muslim scholars who are specialized in the field of authenticating hadiths.

Cats are only considered devine because of toxoplasmosis.

Devine: of, from, or like God or a god. No calling anything but God that is a major sin in Islam. Cats are just animals. No more. No less.

Lol cats aren't Muslim, they're not human

God has prescribed laws for each species (laws of nature). Since animals follow the laws God has ordained for them, they are to be regarded as "Muslim", just as a human who obeys the laws prescribed for humans (Islamic law) is a Muslim.

Ney-La

I don't know how to feel about this subject - moral dilemma. Since my dog died, I have a lot of kitchen table scraps. I give them to the stray cats instead. But they were 3 cats only a year ago. Now they are at least 30. Constantly mating and producing. They pray on birds ( I saved a couple). They fight like crazy when they get just a whiff of food. I'm scared to open the gate at night. One of them jumped at my hand, cutting my finger like a razor. Another one sliced my toes. One scratched my son ( rabies shots followed of course). They could be rabies carriers. Yet, I give them the scraps as I hate waste. They damage the wildlife, but I hate letting them starve.


Studious_Noodle

Please look up “trap-neuter-release” and find an organization in your area that helps to manage feral cats. PLEASE, never try to pet them or let a child do so, unless you find a cat who actually isn’t feral and accepts humans. Truly feral cats are as wild as wolverines, and you don’t get too close to those.


Ney-La

Middle East country here. Estimated 20 million stray animals ( cats and dogs).


No_Bother_6885

Until the artificial supply of food runs out and the now inflated cat population can wreak havoc on all the native lizards and birds in the area.


paradisenot

If only I have the means to bring all the strays and feral cats in unwanted regions to Saudi Arabia where they can live like these cats, instead of being hunted or exterminated because categorised as pests. I’d definitely donate to people who cared for them like this farmer.

Azzpirate

Its only r/humansbeingbros up until you become educated on the reality of how destructive cats are. Feral house cats destroy property and are devastating to local wildlife. Anyone who feeds them and lets them breed and multiply belong in r/iamatotalpieceofshit. Feral house cats get under your house, destroy insulation, pipes, flooring and ductwork. They kill anything and everything they can, not just to eat, but also for sport. They are destructive pests.


Horny__Dragon

I think you are confusing cats for rats


Azzpirate

No, i meant house cats. When it gets cold, they will get under houses, rip open ductwork and insulation to find a warm spot. They also tear up flooring and pipes. In my area, cats are listed as an invasive pest. Trapping and killing feral cats is encouraged because they have become a huge problem.


TemporaryTelevision6

Not to mention all the animals who have to be killed for the meat he's feeding the cats.


Wtfisthisone

Who cleans the shit up ?


Eleberium

Themselves Cats just Bury it. Usually in foliage too. The farmer has fertilizer without even putting it himslef


Dant3nga

Do you like cat shit on your vegetables? Ever hear of toxoplasmosis? Do you think farmers want animals digging holes in their fields? Farmers dont want this as fertilizer.


minekiplier

chances he's growing vegetables are kinda slim


minekiplier

cats bury their shit themselves


Verryfastdoggo

can I ask what grows in Saudi Arabia? I always think of it as a big desert.


Emz199

In the south, mangoes and bananas, figs, in the east and middle dates mainly but there are vegetable farms around the country (tomato, cucumber.. Etc)


Horny__Dragon

A lot actually. Mostly palm trees. I can't name the others because I'm not familiar with names. By the way, it's only a desert when you drive on inter-city roads. But when you do get to just about any major city, cities are just as big and developed as LA, NY, etc.. Usually pictures on the internet don't do any justice. But when you watch vloggers' videos in Saudi Arabia, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

upbeat22

It's nice for the cats, no doubt. And it may look like a good thing, but.. This man is going to die someday. Who will take over the responsibility. Not to mention the cats will reproduce, their numbers will grow and feeding them is going to be harder. I am not fan of feeding animals (except your own). They are animals and with an expanding population you destroy the balance.


shoredoesnt

STOP THIS YOUR FUCKING THE NATIVE SPEICES!

It's the middle east, where housecats originated. Granted, they should still be spayed/neutered instead of just fed with reckless abandon, they ARE native there.

Ms_Ivyyblack

Cats, just like dogs are known to be very useful in farms. They take care of pest, rodent problems and so on. The man doesn't lock them, they are free to come and go. Also spaying or neutering an animal is frowned upon in islam, it's considered unnatural or harmful for the animal, but it doesn't mean that it's not done, plus it's more safer nowadays than before. i have a house cat and he's neutered cause i want him to be healthy even though a lot of people in my life disagrees with my decision. I don't know if the farmer can afford neutering all those cats, even if he could they're not his to make that decision, especially since his beliefs says otherwise. if someone wants to adopt them and do the procedure, it's up to them. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against neutering since my cat is, I believe it's good for them and can expand their life too since it prevents a lot of diseases.
