Cruelty to animals

Monday, August 15, 2011

I was not raised to believe a dog or cat was worthy of being part of our family.We were not supposed to love and pet them(WE DID)They were not to be kept in the house no matter how cold it got(WE DID)dad was a heavy sleeper and mom was sneaky.I love my furr ball and she stays inside!I was doing a break-neck walk the other day and as I passed a box by the side of the road,It moved!!I cautiuosly got closer thinking it could be a skunk.A tiny paw came out of the box and a meow!!I got on my cell and called ASPCA.Can you believe,someone without a soul threw away 9 little kittens???The box was taped shut and 4 died emoticonIn my wildest dreams I could not imagine what the person was thinking!!I cried for two hours I was so distraught..... emoticonSUSAN

    Susan, You are sweet! I adopted 2 senior horses going to slaughter last year. My first horses after decades of dreaming about having one...I never regret a day. They are each so precious and such a great gift to me & my family. Bless you!

    Good job noticing and well done for saving the five little kittens. Some people just haven't a clue how to behave but you sure do, and there are heaps more people out there who do, too. Don't be downhearted about the cruelty in the world because every little bit helps, and you are sure doing your bit.

    That makes me so sad... I look at my Simon Peter, and think how could anyone do that!!! Unfortunately we live in a cold heartless society. Everything can just be thrown away.... Thank Goodness we have Angels like you who walk among us... Love You!! Shannon

    Anyone who could do that to any kind of animal, is a cruel and evil excuse for a human being.

    This is from a society of people who re-named murder "choice". It's the little bricks that built this thinking.

    I think I'm going to be "sick". That person who did that could have at least tried to call someone for help.

    That is so sad and how horrible the people must be to have left them. Yes, take them to a shelter, but first thing is have your own pets spayed or neutered so it doesn't happen in the first place. Too many good animals and not enough good people.

Thank you for caring. emoticon

    Oh, Susan, I'm so sorry that you had witness the death of four of those kittens. Thank you so much for not being an apathetic, selfish person and ignoring the lives of the remainder of the family. You did good!

    How do people have the heart to do such a thing. Couldn't they have brought the kittens to a shelter? You did a good thing bless your heart! emoticon

    That's terrible :( I've spent the last four years doing rescue and foster work with kittens and cats and sadly had to put it on hold recently. I have four cats of my own and living in a studio apartment, I just don't have the space.

Thank you for saving the remaining kittens so that they didn't meet the same horrible fate as their siblings!

    It's pouring here today. Serious, serious rain! So loud it woke us up. It's putting a crimp in my retail therapy for the day. We will be soaked. Luckily the green market is enclosed. School doesn't start here for several weeks. Lucky, we are aged out of that one!

    It's a NICE break in the weather here as well.

But it's so much easier to deal with the crowds if it's not 100 degrees outside.

My daughter is a senior and doesn't need much this year. I am almost done!! :)

    I see rats in the subway all the time. Saw one yesterday a.m. yuck. Can't shave my legs because our backyard is next to a wooded area and I am mosquitos favorite treat. If you run out of calamine we are your source. Put on so much bug spray that can't cross my legs cause they slide off! Feel better. And isn't calamine the best?

    It's a wonderful thing when your child gets her first job. It's an important milestone on her journey to becoming an independent adult.

Working in fast food does not generate a lot of money, but it is a paycheck. I'm quite happy with my daughter's time spent working in fast food. She learned some important life lessons there, and developed enough of a work record to get a better job later on.

    A job is a great learning experience in so many ways, even if it doesn't pay a bundle. I wouldn't have said this way back when, but I wish my parents had insisted that we have some sort of outside responsibility. It sure would have made my early adult years go alot smoother. Hope she likes the job and does well!
