Do I have a problem with god ?
Yes, I damn well do. And I said my piece last night in no uncertain terms. I was furious and disgusted with the god of this planet and I let it know
.. I went outside and gave the equivalent of the BIG finger and more.
Why? Well, in a vacant alotment opposite the supermarket are several little kittens. I first noticed them when I saw people feeding them.
The spare alotment is located between other buildings .. it's vacant because the developer, after knocking down the existing building, went broke
before he could build his new one. It's been overgrown there for over a year.
Ok, cats and their prolific breeding are a problem for society. And there are those who'd claim they're vermin and that people shouldn't be
feeding the kittens (there are several generations, ranging from a few months old to 'adolescents'). But .. it's winter, it's cold and people
have taken pity on the kittens. Not their fault they were born. And they're hungry.
Some local women have contacted the Cat Welfare people for months, begging them to come and take the kittens. If they'd been phoning Cat Welfare to
say someone had bequeathed the organisation ten thousand dollars, they'd be over to collect in a shot. But so far, they've failed to rescue the
kittens. So apparently women from all around have been taking it in turns to feed them each day. And I decided to do my share too and have been
leaving food for the poor things.
That's what I was doing last night. And immediately, the timid little things began eating the food I put out.
The vacant block is surrounded on all sides by chain-link, high fencing.
I was putting out the food and encouraging the more scared kittens in the undergrowth to come and eat, when I saw a large ginger tom and another, pale
adult cat poised for action. Their attention was focused on a clump of foliage between them. It was almost dark.
I could tell they were stalking something, hunting in a pair. I've seen it before.
So, I distracted them, basically while I was calling to the kittens in the bushes to come and eat.
And in the moment the two adults cats were distracted .. just a second .. a tiny little kitten made a dash from between them and into a hole in the
sheet-metal fence of a building adjoining the vacant alotment.
In a second, the large ginger tom was through the hole after it, followed by the other, pale adult cat.
I didn't know what was happening for a second. All the kittens are ginger, so the ginger tom could be assumed to be the 'father'. I tried in that
split second to convince myself the adult cats were 'playing' with the kitten.
Then I heard a tiny meeow. And for a split second, I saw the tiny kitten's face peering back at me through the sheet metal fence.
And the ginger tom had the kitten's neck in his mouth.
I ran to the sheet metal fence and found a door, but it was locked.
I banged on the metal and yelled 'Hey' several times, loudly. People passing by stared at me, thought I was crazy most likely.
Then I saw no more. Couldn't get into the yard of the building next to the vacant alotment or get through the fence.
The women who've been feeding the kittens told me they are 'disappearing'.
I walked home sick to my stomach. What a #e planet this is. What sort of deviant, sadistic bastard would create conditions such as we have here,
where everything preys upon something else ?
' If this is intelligent design' I told the god of this planet under my breath as I walked home, ' Then there's precious little
'intelligence' in evidence'.
And, 'If you didn't know what you were doing .. if you put this crap hole in motion without first considering the inevitable results .. then you
are an irresponsible bastard
Tom cats EATING their young .. utilizing their young as an easy food source .. choosing to eat their young rather than eating the food made available,
because eating their young provides entertainment and excitement of the hunt as well as fresh blood.
If I had been able to, last night, I would have blown this hell-hole to smithereens.
This isn't a paradise, it's HELL.
And the god responsible for this place is a DEMON
Thank God my God isn't the creator of this planet, or we'd be having a divorce.
(edited to add that I realise I misspelled 'allotment' incorrectly all the way through .. apologies .. but I'm in no mood to fix it)
