George and Oregon Birders,

You appear to be incorrect here. Discussion of cats in relation to birds is prohibited on TWEETERS, and has been for many years. This followed several angry exchanges between cat-lovers and cat-haters. It is a subject which is best avoided on any birding e-mail group.

And the problem is? This is carrying touchy-ness to the extreme, it seems to me. I follow both OBOL and Tweeters, and this is the kind of discussion that never would occur on Tweeters. Nobody would think of it.

I think Wayne’s approach is right. Fine to refer people to the article as Noah is One of Us. This is his first-ever article for NG and is thus a big deal for the Oregon birding family.

Cats and falconry are topics excluded from OBOL because they will start endless, er, catfights. Thanks for respecting this custom.
