Yet, could not these same fangs and claws be used in tearing apart heavy vegetation and ripping off husks and shells?'
So what - the cats would use their fangs and claws to rip vegetation for the vegetation eating animals like cows, sheep, etc? How did this animals eat when the cats weren't around?
I've had cats for years, thus, fine presents - usually bloody - left on my doorstep for me. My dachshunds do this too, btw. What's even funnier is to see the "owner" trying to catch the cat/dog with the dead animal in it's mouth - and both look like their playing football, with the owner loosing.
Why would God create cows/sheep, hippos, etc., with vegetarion eating style teeth and wolves, lions, etc., with carnivorous style teeth? Was he confused as to what the animals were designed to eat?
Obviously, my cats & dogs know what they want to chase and eat - meat.
