An Itty Bitty Rant

I can not fathom people who treat animals in any way other than companions.  Granted, one must be careful around wild animals.  But domesticated animals, dogs, cats, etc.  I just don't get it.  People who dump kittens on the side of the road.  Ones who dump two unspayed females out because the woman got pregnant.  We didn't find out about that one until the kittens were born.  In fact, one of the kittens ended up breaking his hip and even though we really couldn't afford it, Christopher became my first cat as an adult (my first husband let me have gerbils but no cats).  He lived to be 16 and died of kidney failure.  I've rescued a number of other cats since then, and every single one of them, if they weren't already, was neutered or spayed.  Yes, Tims and Princesses in my house... no Toms & Queens.

I just wish that people who did abandoned or otherwise hurt animals could be subjected to the same treatment they gave the animals.  Then maybe they'd understand why so many people think it's cruel.  Okay... done ranting for the day.
