A HOUSE CAT IS A HEALTHY CAT.
I know, and was speaking of this earlier, but it's a quality of life thing with my cats and me. I think I'd be willing to forfeit 10 or so years of living as I please to 100+ years of the same old walls. And yes, I have had indoor only cats when it was appropriate, as in living on a busy street, etc. But said cats were so completely miserable that we found a new home - due largely to the cat uprising that was about to take place! I know this is the seedy underbelly of cat-lovers, but cats need to have fun too! And I make sure mine are spayed and all, and they sleep inside every night and have their shots and wear tags, and I know when they're acting weird or normal. And "kill all humans" is just stupid and will get you (and your animals) nowhere.
Also, "revenge" gets you nowhere, esp. since, if I'm not mistaken, Billy only thinks it might be this guy. It could also be something nobody's even thought of yet, such as heartworms (which is what my vet told me they would've checked for in addition to poisoning).
