[Top Story] Climate Change Blurring Definition of Native Species: As climate change alters ecosystems, scientists ... than a minute ago via twitterfeed

Freeloading squatters are using "Climate Change" as a handy excuse to laze about where they're not wanted, more like!

None of us are very happy with climate change. We're all dealing with uncomfortable temperatures and freak storms, but I'm not trying to move into their backyard, so these other species should stay the bloody hell out of mine.

And before you accuse me of being close-minded or selfish, I'd like to point out that Wired agrees with me completely:

"Each new immigrant has the potential to radically change the neighborhood — welcoming an influx of new predators and parasites, altering soil nutrients and porosity, even changing the amount of moisture and sunlight that reaches ground dwellers."(Slight emphasis added)
Now, I can see where some of the Kookaburras in my neighbourhood acting like total slobs might give some people a false impression, but the fact is that we aren't looking for any newcomers, especially when they won't respect the character of the place we've worked so hard to develop.

The last thing we need is an influx of Bison with their gang violence, Pandas and their drug culture, or Polar Bears and their reckless, inattentive driving. I'm sure @Ern Malley's Cat will agree with me when I say emphatically:

"Shove off and find someplace else. We were here first."

Don't go all marsupial on me. We mammals have rights too, you know. Just so long as the carnivores are kept out.

Though, technically , I may not actually have been here first, you are right in assuming I would delight in saying 'Shove off'.
There, I've said it.
And I'm referring to @MisterShuffles and his extending family. Another one of those big mamas at Taronga Park has issued a cute baby elephant. Presumably this one will also use social media to take attention from the true original animals on the internet. LOLcats.

Cats are carnivores! Nuff said!

Interesting that you lay claim to the internet, 'Cat, seeing as it's such a cesspit of wanton carnality.

One thing about carnivores, Archie, is that they'll keep those no-good Possums in their place right enough.

Well, yes - possums must be put in their place but what is being done about the wombats?
