    Re: For animal lovers

    I have to vent for a moment and I know the posters here will agree with me! I have a friend on Facebook who is someone I knew in h.s., but was not good friends with. He hung out with people I knew, but I didn't hang out with him. Anyway, a few weeks ago, he posted about how he needed to find a home for his cat because he's moving. He then messaged me asking for advice. I live in another state, 600+ miles away, and have NO idea where he could go to find a home for the cat. I didn't want to get too bitchy but I told him that, under NO circumstances should he take her to a shelter because, with the state of overcrowding in most shelters, she would most likely be put down. I did give him a few suggestions, including asking his vet, but really, I don't even know the geography there to know how close or far he is from certain cities in his state.

    Cut to recently, when he posted about needing to find a temporary home for his dog until he finds a place to live in his new city. No one responded, so he posted this rude, scolding post about how there must not be animal lovers on FB. W.T.F? Someone actually scolded him right back, but I'm biting my tongue. HARD. First, I believe that, when you adopt a pet, it's a lifelong obligation and, if you HAVE to get rid of the pet, it's your responsibility to find it a wonderful home. Secondly, if you're moving somewhere new, it's also your responsibility to find a place to live that will take that pet. You don't just head off to the big city like you're 18 with no obligations and just discard the animal if it's not convenient.

    Like I said, this isn't someone who's really a good friend - more of an acquaintance - and I'm not about to call him out on FB like I want to. Still, what a jackass (or other word that has "ass" in it that I can use here ).

    And now, to lighten the mood, here's a picture of my gigantic one-year old, Oliver. Photobucket
    He weighed maybe 3 lbs when I got him last summer. The last time he was at the vet, which was a few months ago, he was 12 lbs. He's grown since then. 18 lbs, here we come! He's a little plump (which the vet wasn't concerned about), but he's mainly just long and tall....and still thinks he can sit under my chin when I watch TV! I never thought I'd recover from losing Jasper, but this "little" guy has just opened my heart again.

    Its always sad to hear of irresponsible pet owners. I hope those pets will be loving forever homes.

    Oliver is so handsome, I love the pose. "Hey go ahead take my picture, I know you can't resist."

    Don't forget about the animals affected by those storms. Cousin of mine talked to a vet friend in Alabama who has spent the day putting down livestock. Barns and fences splintering were not kind to the animals. Dogs and cats also separated from owners. So donate to animal relief also. Human life is the most important, but don't forget the animals.
