Not the greatest quality work but the message is what's important here. :(

Just got the word that the sibling of two of our latest adoptions was put down the other day. Some ass dropped three kittens off at some woman's house, probably hoping she'd take them in. They almost ended up feral. Ringer and Maulie were caught and reconditioned before it was too late, and have made themselves at home at our house.
Not so with the third kitten (sex unknown). It was finally caught, fixed and then for over a month, worked with. It was no turned wild. It bit anyone aggressively that it could. It was a beautiful cat too. It was sad to hear that the poor thing was unadoptable. It couldn't be trusted with anyone. :(

I hate it when people treat animals like TRASH. (I'm not against hunting for FOOD, but for the sake of killing for sport, I'm VERY against it. :rage:)
Please alter your pets. Too many die in shelters, but too many MORE die out in the wild. The average lifespan of a feral cat is 1-3 years if it's lucky. And domestic cats have it hard as dogs do. (they're prey to coyotes and fishers)

A Photo of the cats in question, that is related to this subject:

I'm learning about the difference between animal WELFARE and animal RIGHTS. Nice to open the eyes. :(

Update: There's MORE to my galleries (including my scraps, which has good stuff in it too) than this stamp. Thank you.

Someone referred to animals in shelters and strays as "biological trash" Disgusting. One of my teachers adopted a stray kitten :happybounce:

OMG. Seriously? That's like inexcusable. :rage: Almost all our animals were shelter or rescue. The best pets/companions we've ever had. They are and were family.
The earth isn't "all about us ". :omg: But humans seem to think it. :no: Thanks for faving the stamp. :thanks:

You are right! It's great that you rescue animals! I hate it when people talk like that when it comes to animals, like that is so offensive to pet owners like you! And animal lovers in general, like me. I hope your shelter and rescue pets are happy and healthy! Like I said, one of my teachers adopted a stray kitten and she is so sweet. The person who called those shelter and stray animals 'trash' gets no respect from me. It was in a newspaper somewhere. So disrespectful. People who leave animals to die disgust me.

I seriously hate some people. All of the dogs/cats we ever owned were strays. I hate the people that dumped them :(

Yes!!!!! I could not agree more! My best friend threw her dog on a moving kid on a swing, and I started to scream at her. The puppy was young and could have broke it legs, its cruel and it's not funny At all. I have lots of pets, and I treat them like family, because they are. ^^

It's OK not to like animals.
But that's NOT  a reason to treat them like c***

I mean,you don't HAVE to like animals,you have the right not to.
But you DO NOT have the right to treat them horribly for no reason,the only acceptable reasons to hurt an animal-for me- are 1.For food 2.For self defanse 3.Responsible hunting to prevent overpopulation and suffering,not trophy hunting.

But that's just my opinion.

People that treat animals like Trash are disgusting.

I really don't like it when people kick hurts them..

Then I don't like it when people straight up drop the animal seriously PUT IT DOWN GENTLY.
