Vicious, bird-killing machines totally devoid of  conscience, or unfortunate scapegoats (scapecats?) for humanity’s somewhat more ruinous ecological destruction?

One thing’s for certain: lots of people have VIEWS when it comes to cats. So this week we try to understand some of the facts (spoiler: cats are really good at killing), and wrestle with questions like:

  • Can you be a greenie and have a cat without being a massive hypocrite?
  • Can cats be vegan?
  • Is Ol’s cat a git?

Also this week, less than ideal weather news from the Arctic. Gulp.
