Response to CountAllVotes (Reply #4)

Mon Jan 9, 2012, 10:32 PM

33. One of my Caturday friends...

...was given a kitten from a bad breeder (she didn't buy him; he was a gift from somebody who didn't know better).
This kitten has all sorts of health issues and will never be a normal cat...and he is a dear sweet cuddly loving boy who is going to break both his human and his feline 'brother's' heart by dying young.

The animals the breeders produce are real, unfortunately...and even if they get a good 'forever home', they don't have a fair shake and tend to prejudice their owners about getting ANY other animal after they're gone. Who wants heartbreak?

We know that heartbreak is part of the contract...but one expects to have a bit of time with the furkid, not immediate right-off-the-bat.



I hope I'm making sense...I DO NOT condone breeders and am all for adopting shelter animals (two of mine are rescues; the other two adopted ME).
