~ Every year millions of healthy cats and dogs are killed
in shelters and pounds in America.
An unaltered pair of cats and their offspring could produce
420,000 kittens in seven years.
A female dog and her offspring, over 67,000 puppies.
Please spay or neuter your family pet,
let's have no more homeless animals ~
I'm not giving kittens away! Miss Emily and Sara have been a part of my family over ten years.
My heading today is mostly anger at people that let their cats keep having kittens, over and over.
As some of you know, I go to tag/yard/estate sales. I found a nice little cat bed at one this weekend and mentioned I had cats. The woman asked me if I wanted some kittens. Being on a very limited income, I had to refuse. She said she had *two* cats with kittens. She had 12 kittens.
After telling her I could not possibly take any more cats, I told her to be sure to get her cats spayed as soon as possible. She looked at me like my head had just come off my shoulders and bounced over the house and back to my shoulders. She has no intention of spaying her cats.
More cats in shelters, more cats in pounds, more cats on the street to die untimely deaths, more cats to make more cats.
I know I'm preaching mostly to the choir, but at least I got it out of my system, until next weekend.
