jmkhets.... man you got to read some books or something. I have been reading your posts you sound like an absolute moron. If you start feeding cats to your snakes and the word gets out, your going to F*** up the hobby for everyone around you.

If you canít afford to do the right thing with your cats, than YOU SHOULD NOT OWN THEM. If they are stray, give them to the humane society.

If the pounds are full it's your mother's responsibility to make sure the kitties have homes. It's not right to dump them, and I can't believe she would even consider it. It's also against the law. You'd better believe if my own mother did that I'd report her in a second. I'm sorry you had to be put in this uncomfortable situation, but there are alternatives... ACAT, for instance, will takes in cats, pay for medical costs (including surgery) and adopt out kitties. They don't euthanize, either.

If she doesn't have the money to spay or neuter her cats, tell her that there are places that will do it at little or NO cost. I have two male cats that were neutered absolutely 100% free. I never paid a penny for it.

Good luck, and keep us posted!

Bring your "kitties" to the humane society and get them put down. Don't bother finding homes and don't feed em to your snakes. Don't cheap out by giving your boas a free meal. Oh wait, I forgot. You live in the "land of the free". :P

*sigh* Damn was it such an effort trying to be nice.

Time to grow up people... and keep the thread clean
My opinion is to NOT feed the cats off...heres a fantastic idea...why not SELL them to people whom are willing to care for them? and the people here are right...just talking about feeding Kittens off is asking for serious trouble, and does and will damage the reptile hobby for the rest of us

For the sake of the future of herpetoculture in Canada, I do hope the mods delete this thread as the very title is enough for activist to use as fuel. God only knows we have enough trouble with the legality of snake keeping already.

oh good lord. I think aside from all the emotional stuff, which if you happened to notice one of MY recent threads about kittens, I wont need to explain my perspective on it, it is a bad idea to let your snakes associate the smell of housepets with food, yes.

I agree totally with JD, word gets out and there will be grannies writing to their local politicians and the hobby gets yet another black eye. Hard enough fighting moronic local bylaws without starting a bonfire with something like this. I would like to see this thread disappear and forget I ever saw it. (if that's possible)

Art - Very good point! I hadn't thought of that!!

As for the legality... why does it make a difference whether it's a kitten or a rat? Both are commonly kept as pets, and both are food for other animals in the wild.

I really don't see what people are creating a stink about... if the "mammal keepers" kept their cats under control we "snake-keepers" wouldn't even be considering this. I know it looks bad for the herp community (even though it really shouldn't) so I'll shut up now... =)

I can't even feed a rabbit out to a snake, so I guess you know where I'd stand. lol. I can handle mice and rats but I can't have anything that would eat anything larger than a full grown rat because I can't see myself feeding a rabbit out. I love rabbits. Not crazy over cats, but still wouldn't feed one out. YUK! I hope this thread disapears soo

edited: Oh, and also I actually have 3 rats I hold as dear pets. I would never consider feeding them out. I'm alright with f/t though, I guess cuz they aren't mine. lol. And I breed out my own mice and feed but non of them are concidered pets, I guess it's like a meet farm with their cattle.
Everyone has their own oppinion on this and that will never change. I think questions like this should not even be brought up on the forum, they just get everyone fired up.
