    A very good post.

    Given that we have found many human conditions (such as diabetes) exist in cats, it shouldn’t be a surprise at all that cats can be gay.

    You can see that homosexual behavior is attributed to cats in Bagemihl’s book on animals and sexuality.

    Sadly, it appears that gay cats are subject to the same kind of discrimination as gay humans.

    And it’s not limited to cats.

    Very sad. If you’re not looking to breed them, and the animal has been spayed or neutered, what difference does it make?

  2. You sure did a fantastic job of writing here!

      Definitely a thought provoking topic. It’s funny how we can take one thing, discussion out of the past, and all of a sudden it’s totally relevant for something that we are writing about.
