I know I’m supposed to read this story in Tuscaloosa News today and say “awwwww.” See, what happened was this lady had a cat, then the cat had kittens. One of the many, many tireless volunteers who work in the animal rescue community found out about this and got the kittens adopted out. This is where it gets weird, even though this lady already owned one cat, she sent all three cats – mom and two kittens – out for adoption because she couldn’t afford her apartment’s pet deposit. Fine.
Why she couldn’t keep her original cat is beyond me. But whatever. Anyway, the cat was adopted and then it came back to her! Aww, see, this is where we’re supposed to go “awwww.”
But I can’t, because all I can read in this story is “IF YOU WOULD HAVE SPENT $50 TO HAVE THE GODDAMN CAT SPAYED IN THE FIRST PLACE NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.”
Fuuuuuuck people. Why are southerners so against controlling the pet population?
Here are a shit ton of links for low cost spay neuter programs in Alabama; though let’s get real, if you’re reading this blog, I’m probably probably preaching to the choir.
