very interesting thread we have here. though it IS true that we are taught to see cats, and in this case kittens, as pets and not food, you have missed the point in my opinion. The ad was talking about giving the kittens to a home... it is assumed that it is for a pet. If I were to give a kitten away I would plenty pissed to find it fed to a snake.
Marisa, cats do not breed like rats or mice, so I disagree with you there. Usually, cats breeding is seasonal. in addition, cats are pregnant much longer, while rats have shorter pregnancies, which allows more breeding per year. and for me, although stray cats are a nuisance, i'd rather some stray cats then a rat/mouse infestation!
anyway, interesting thread... good job! haha...
