Buddies



I never adopted siblings before Thor and Loki, but it was the best thing I've done. They are so bonded that I can't imagine how they would be if they'd been separated.

And I need to stop looking at the John Ancrum SPCA and the Frances Willis SPCA sites because it's making me sad.

Like the two five year old kitties given up because their owner was pregnant. Don't get me started.

Or the 15 year old cat. I just want to bring her home and spoil her rotten for her few remaining years.

I'm going to end up with a hundred cats.

Oh - it's just painful seeing people give up older animals. I can't imagine a single reason good enough (I know they exist - like if a person died and had made no arrangements for their pets and knew no one..., but really I just can't come up with many good reasons) - it's heartbreaking. At the Vets the other day, there was an 8-yr old lab looking for a home. Right now I have to turn the TV off if that commercial for Pedigree dogfood comes on - it has all of these dogs (strays) in a kennel, like the SPCA or something - and the voice says that they are all just 'waiting to go home'...one day I'll just snap and go to the pound and adopt them all. It makes me sad too.

Pam, I agree. It just makes me sadder to see an older animal at the shelter because I picture them wondering where their family and home went. Plus, they are less likely to be adopted.

I'd take them all home if I could.
