fuck it fridays

Can I just say that it is my fervent hope and desire that there is a special place in hell for those people who do not sterilise their animals, especially their cats, and then abandon or dump them when the reality of having two adults and a litter of kittens is apparently too hard to deal with in any kind of responsible and humane way.

Oh, and for those of you who haven’t thought about the consequences of not sterilising your animals, just remember that Karma is a bitch with big claws that will rip your fucking throat out if you don’t do something about it asap.

Here endth this community announcement.

    I totally agree with you!

  2. Tam says:

    Yep. I'm with ya. If you can't afford to get the kitten (dog/rabbit/whatever) fixed, don't get it in the first place.

  3. Down with the man!! *power to the kitteh*

  4. This is my biggest pet peeve. So many animals euthanized every year because people are irresponsible. There is NO EXCUSE.

  5. wren says:

    Yeah…what you (all) said!

  6. orannia says:

    I'm too scared to ask what horrible sight you saw/heard of…here you can take your animals to the RSPCA for spaying/neutering, but people still don't do it.

    If you feel you're responsible enough to have an animal, then you're responsible enough to ensure all of its needs are met!

    My previous cat, Alice(RIP)was from the Cat's Protection league. She'd been with a family who had discovered their little boy was allergic to cats and so they locked her out of the house. Inevitably she had kittens which is when the family came to their senses and gave Alice and her kittens to the CPL. The CPL do not euthanase any of their cats so they'd had Alice a little while before we took her (older cats don't get picked up as quickly as kittens).

    I don't have anything to rant about today except maybe the price of kid's shoes. They are all back to school on Monday and I've spent a fortune on uniform, shoes and trainers for the eldest two. Eldest son'd shoes alone cost £55, which is more that I'd ever even spend on a pair of shoes for me!

    I have to agree but it cannot swing my good mood.

    I am going on holiday!! Tomorrow! 2 weeks! Sun, sea, boats, greek food.

    There is one minor thing, a delay with one of my ordered books from bookdepository. *grumble*
    Now I need to go through my bookcase for a replacement

    Thanks guys for the support.

    I've had a very stressful and emotional time of it this past week with discovering a family of six (a tom and 5 kittens) living under my house and then trying to get help and ending up having to capture them in traps myself after finding out the one service available here is booked for 2 weeks – hello spring!

    Then, of course, I had to take the cats elsewhere just in case they might infect my own boys with something evil. There's a certain inevitability for some of the kittens because they are too feral. It really breaks your heart.

    We humans can be so fucking thoughtless about those who are reliant upon us.

    OK, gotta stop cos I'm getting mopey again.

    Ingrid, how I envy you, hun. I could REALLY do with a holiday in the sun. Have a fabulous time!

    It's always heartening when someone makes an effort to help helpless creatures. Thank goodness there are a lot of those someones, like you, out there…but there needs to be more.

    When I still had my mini-farm, a lone, feral kitten turned up in the barn. It took a few weeks of taking food outside, sitting nearby, and gently talking to the kitten to win its trust. Finally, one day, it followed me back to the house, and Butterscotch turned out to be one of the most affectionate cats I'd ever had.

    Preventative measures first, a helping hand second. It's all about doing the right thing.

  11. Your “community announcement” deserves repeating on a regular basis until people start getting with the program. At least things are better than they were 20 years ago: now we've got adoption programs with the cats already sterilized and vaccinated, and there is no more selling of kittens in pet stores since there are always cats that need adopting.

    I acquired a young stray cat about a year ago who has turned out to be incredibly smart and full of personality. His previous family, whoever they were, did get him neutered so I'm not sure why he ended up on his own. He got attracted to our yard because we don't have a dog and we were feeding the wild birds (i.e., good hunting for him).

    We're such saps — we've been putting out food for him and consequently all the other strays out there. Not that we know for sure that some of them are strays. They could just be pets that snack at several houses all over the neighborhood throughout the day!

  12. Yeah, and a big FUCK YOU to all the werewolves out there who are so inbred that they end up with parvo!!

    *looks around* uh….*slides back out*

    Word. I 100% agree with you.

    Jenre – that's so cute…the Cat Protection League. It's like the kitty superheroes. 🙂
    The price of kids' shoes IS ridiculous. As well as clothes.

    My rant: I have to buy clothes for my oldest because she's grown out of almost everything in her closet. I'm going to have to take out a second mortgage! lol I'm heading to the outlet stores.
