I poked a flies nest..
#1
I poked a flies nest..
A small cat the neighbors' had died.
The smell was horrible, we didn't locate the cat so I tried to follow the smell + the hordes of bugs (flies and little fuckers).

We finally located the poor thing, it was dead and bloated behind the neighbor's water tank.

I did something I regret now while searching: I picked up a branch and started to poke the source of the flies, my legs felt so itchy afterwards, flies came flying in huge numbers. until I went inside and took a shower.

Very sad. Obviously the cat was hit by a car; but not fatally: retreated behind the water tank, then died there.

An interesting compliment to death is to perceive the beauty in it.

Surely a much more acceptable thing than, say, eyeliner...right, Winter?

There wouldn't be life, without death. It's fascinating to think that without death, there probably wouldn't be any evolution, and we'd still be virus & bacteria.

You...poked a dead, fly-covered cat with a stick. What are you, 7?

A very sad thing for everybody involved...

Especially when it's unexpected and yucky like this. I'm sorry you had to go through it.

It's strange how strongly a pet's death can affect us, even when it's not our own.

This is not the first cat I know near me to get hit by a car in the last months; a new caffe opened next to me and teenagers are pouring there like crazy, boys try to impress girls and vise versa.

Since there is no bars or nightclubs in SA teenagers gather in caffes, so expect crazy shit whenever the weekend comes. A stupid kid with 50000 $ car won't care about a cat crossing the road.

The longer you live with a pet they turn from "it" to "he/she";becoming relatives and friends.

Just out of curiosity, what other dead animals have you poked with a stick?

RE: I poked a flies nest..
This topic reminds me of a quote that goes:

"Muslims love their cats. The average cat in Saudi Arabia has more rights than most of its citizens, particularly the women." - Clint Emerson.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I really think we don't need an answer to this.
