Round 2 Of Animals Being Used For Crime: Mafia Tie Burning Rags To Cats To Start Forest Fires If They Don’t Get Their Protection Money

DailyMail- Cats are being used as 'arsonists' by the mafia who set them alight to start huge forest fires, claims a park manager death-marked by the mob. President Giuseppe Antoci of Nebrodi, Sicily's largest national park, spoke as firefighters extinguished hundreds of fires which broke out simultaneously across the island last week. Mr Antoci, 48, who survived an assassination attempt by the mafia in May, claimed the crime group 'use the animals as arsonists', and the cats burn all the bushes that they touch, reports Corriere Della Sera. The park director added that five hundred forest fires do not spontaneously combust all at once. He said: 'One of the mob's arson techniques is to tie a petrol-soaked rag to the tail of a cat and set fire to it. As its tail burns, the cat flees in terror into the undergrowth in the woods, setting fire to everything it touches. 'That makes it harder for investigators to figure out where the fire was started and since the cat is eventually incinerated, they never find what caused the fire,' reports The Times. Last week the fires ravaged the island and nearly 6,000 hectares of land went up in smoke. Schools had to be evacuated after a hot sirocco wind blew in from Africa, before forest fires started simultaneously breaking out across the island.

Ha! And you guys scoffed at my idea of using Sea Turtles as drug mules. Animals make for the perfect criminals. Talk a walk though Miami Metro Zoo or Parrot Jungle and you might as well be walking through Attica Correctional with the amount of potential criminals to carry out a ploy. Now this tactic, in practice, is a great idea. Simple find a cat wandering the streets and lure it to you with a little can of fancy feast and turn it into a roaming molotov cocktail because cats naturally hate humans unless they feel like being attention whores and fire burns things. Boom. In principle though, not sure if I’m down with this idea. I mean don’t get me wrong, it makes a statement. But somethings don’t connect. Like “You owe me protection money so im going to set this forest ablaze.” If anything I guess it’ll annoy the park ranger a lot when you have a lazy gig like guarding a park and then someone burns it to ashes, but that’s more for firefighters to deal with. Maybe if they just sent the guy a burnt cat wrapped in brown wrapping paper that said “GIVE ME THE PROTECTION MONEY OR IM GOING TO BURN YOU ALIVE” first to send a message before resorting to Arson on the entire region of Sicily. Not in those words of course, maybe something a little more subtle, but you get the point.

Apparently You Have To Look Like A God Damn Fool In Order To Make Your Cat Love You

Business Insider- For cats, grooming by licking each other is an integral part of social bonding. As much as some cat owners might want to take part of that ritual, they won't be successful without a handful of cat fur stuck in their teeth. A Kickstarter campaign, LICKI Brush, launched a product which enables its users to lick and groom their cat as much as they want.

This guy in this demonstration video is like staring at the most pathetic thing on earth. Hey @cats, if you think I’m gonna bite down on some mouth guard, ribbed fake tongue that i thought was a sex toy at first, thing and pretend to lick you in order for you to love me even though I have to look after your over all well being by feeding you and shit and paying for you, you can go to hell. If you think this is normal, you’re delusional. Dogs lick them selves too, yet here we are operating independently as two different species not trying to lick one another with some fake tongue thing. But the part that just makes cats so much worse isn’t that dogs just love people naturally, its that if my dog asked me to lick him with this fake rubber tongue, id do it. Cause i love him and i know he loves me. This cat on the other hand is just fleeting love. Once you realize you’re pathetic and toss that thing in the trash then you can bet your ass your cats gonna go back to expecting food and waiting for the day you drop dead. That’s the difference.

Woman Tries To Rescue A Cat That Didn’t Need To Be Rescued, Ends Up Being Airlifted Off Of A Cliff.

(NEWSER) – A 51-year-old California woman who climbed up a steep slope behind her house to rescue one of her cats ended up needing to be airlifted off the cliff, CBS Los Angeles reports. The cat, meanwhile, made it down safely on its own. While attempting to retrieve the cat yesterday, Sara Beebe slid about 50 feet and twisted her ankle, according to the Orange County Register. Too hurt to climb the rest of the way down, Beebe started yelling for help, and eventually a neighbor called 911. Firefighters used a helicopter to airlift Beebe to safety, and she appeared to have learned her lesson. "I am going to have to start letting the cat be a little more independent," Beebe tells CBS.

Fucking cats. I dont want to be one of those people who hates on cats but its so hard not to. Its more that they’re just not awesome like dogs. I dont hate them hate them, just would never really own one. But worst than cats are the cat people that come along with it. Always feel the need to baby them and shit. Always think they’re cute and shit even tho cats never smile or seem joyful. That cat doesnt want to stay with you 24/7 it wants to explore and shit. I mean cats fall outta trees and shit all the time and land on their own feet. But of course you had to be a crazy cat lady and end up stranded on a steep cliff and needing a god damn helicopter to airlift you off off the side of a hill. Honestly think about it. Think about how god damn ridiculous that sounds. Half of me thinks the cat wanted to strand you there just to escape your clutches. Like it was an elaborate plot from the jump
