Title says it all, really.

I've never met so many people with such a dislike and hatred of cats anywhere else, and I find it confusing.
Unlike dogs, cats tend to be fairly easily avoided, they are shy and towards humans non-aggressive.
In many countries, cats are the number one pets. Yet here, people will voice opinions like "the only good cat is a drowned cat".

So where does it come from?

Sometimes she goes after the mouse cursor, which can be quite annoying...

It seems to come from farmer folk and boggers who live in the sticks who like to kill everything that moves..

Cats are cool , i have 6 of them

They kill birds, thats why. I never hated cats, I just distrusted their loyalty. But since I befriended the neighbours cat, my views of them has been a plus. They are lovely creatures.

It's possibly a left-over from the prehistoric age when big cats stalked us, manifesting in the hypothalamus part of the brain.

Cat-lovers are therefore more evolved, according to this theory.

I somehow doubt that the percentage of morons in Ireland is so significantly higher than anywhere else, though.

Love cats to bits, and the really great thing is you don't have to go looking for them. They just appear when you're catless and worm their way into your life. The new cat we have was living up a tree in the back garden, now it's snoring on my pillow. How do they manage that?

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the domestication of cats in part due to cats ability to catch vermin which was useful around the farm?

Personally I love cats and it pisses me off when people say they hate cats then can't back it up with any logical reason, which happens quite often.
