Puff: Here's a tip - don't make my mommy mad...Whoo-Boy kitties, Mommy doesn't get on a rant too often, but yesterday she went to town! She got into a discussion at her work place about spaying and neutering pets. A lady was talking about her kitty that had just had a litter of kittens (her fourth litter!) and how she was concerned that they would not be able to find homes for the new kittens. Mommy asked the lady if she had ever considered spaying her cat to prevent this from happening again. (Insert crickets chirping here...). Apparently spaying a cat in this lady's opinion would cost too much. (Insert more Crickets chirping)...
Mommy took a deep breath and proceeded to educate this lady on the cost of not spaying her kitty. AND went on to give her the facts about letting her kitty roam around outside. I won't give you the gory details about what Mommy really wanted to say to this lady, but I will tell you that Mommy has offered to pay to have the lady's kitty spayed as soon as the kittens are weaned.
I hope the lady takes Mommy up on her offer. I know I was a "loose kitty" before I came to live with our 'rents, but I have to say that there are too many unloved and unwanted cats in this world to stay quiet when beans don't consider the consequences of not spaying and neutering!
To all of you beans reading this - don't be silent - speak up for us 'cause we can't bean-speak for ourselves!
