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 use....it 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.
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)

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.
