Ky humane society cats are so cute
The cats at the Humane Society of the United States are so cute. I don’t know how they can help anyone. They’re too cute to save. It’s amazing to me that they can be that cute. Maybe they’re the ones we should be saving. The Humane Society’s website says, “A cat or kitten that looks like that” is a kitten who has not been spayed or neutered. I’m not sure what it means by “looks like”. Is it how they walk? Are they too fat? Their ears too long? Their whiskers too pointy? I’m lost. “If they were not properly neutered,” the Humane Society says, “they are at a greater risk of developing urinary tract diseases, or they can become pregnant.”
The Humane Society says, “Cats are very intelligent and trnable.” I love cats, but how do you get a cat to do something if they’re “very intelligent”? Trn a dog to catch a ball. Trn a dog to sit. Trn a dog to walk. Trn a dog to run. Trn a cat to do the dishes. Trn a cat to walk through a cat door. Trn a cat to eat when it’s supposed to. Trn a cat to go to the bathroom when it’s supposed to. I don’t know how you trn a cat to walk on a leash, “very intelligent” or not. I don’t think I’m being unreasonable. Maybe you can’t.
The Humane Society says, “Cats and dogs have evolved as companions in our world.” I love dogs. I love cats. There is a world outside my home and the world outside the Humane Society. The world outside the Humane Society is a world of barking dogs, screaming children, a world of loud noises. It’s a world of mess, poop, and pee, a world of biting cats. That’s the real world. I don’t think anyone is saying that pets and people can’t live together. But when we share our houses with dogs and cats, do we have to accept that our cats will eat our dinner and take our shoes, and our dogs will drink our wine and jump on us? I don’t think so.
The Humane Society says, “Cats have been considered indoor pets for centuries.” Cats have been considered indoor pets for less than 20 years. My grandparents lived in Florida until they passed away. They didn’t have a cat. I grew up in Texas. My cat was a stray and not considered a pet. Now it is. I’m thankful, but in my younger days I remember begging my parents to take her in, and begging my brother and sister to take her in. Even now when I tell people that I have a cat and I’m living in a small space, they look at me like I’m crazy. They assume that I’m living with a dog. Do you want your cat to walk through a dog’s litter? Do you want a cat or a dog walking through your living room? Do you want your child to be bitten by a cat or to be bitten by a dog? My daughter was bit by a cat. Is that the new American dream?
The Humane Society says, “Cats aren’t natural predators.” Cats are natural predators. They just don’t eat baby gerbils. Dogs are natural predators. They just don’t eat baby gerbils. My cat and I have a loving and healthy relationship. I know that she’s just as much a part of my family as my kids. If it weren’t for her, I don’t know that I would still be in this house. I have had cats before and while I love them dearly, this is the first time I had a cat who wasn’t my own. I’ve had dogs. I’ve had cats. I’ve had dogs and cats. I’ve had dogs and cats that I loved dearly and I loved animals before I had kids. I loved dogs more than cats. I didn’t have kids until I was 41. I had one child and the rest of my family had three or four, and my daughter was only one when I had her. After the adoption, we knew that my daughter was going to be part of a cat’s life. Her first cat was her sister’s cat. The second was a kitten that I couldn’t adopt. The third cat, however, was my daughter’s. I wanted her to have a cat that loved her just as much as my daughter loved me. She did. We have a wonderful relationship.
I can’t say the same for my kids and their cats. They are all feral cats. If the cats were in a barn, they would all have been spayed or neutered. We’ve done all we can to make the cats feel comfortable in their new surroundings. They all stay in a cage on the outside of the house. The cats have all been treated for feline leukemia. They’re healthy and happy and I can see them all the time. We have a fence around the house so that they have shelter to play in and a place to sleep. They have water. They have food. My kids love the cats. My kids treat them like cats. But they don’t know how to be around them like I know how to be around my daughter’s cat. I’m not sure how to help.
When I first saw the news story about the cat who fell from the deck, I didn’t have a chance to read the article. I’m so sorry that this happened to your cat. When I did read the article, I couldn’t believe how stupid people can be. But I do agree with the article. How stupid is it to have a live, wild cat in your house? Cats are very territorial and I’m surprised that there isn’t more damage to the cats’ tls than there was. The cat didn’t “jump” from the deck. She fell. Do you blame her? What if the cats jumped off a fire escape? Would the same people blame the cats? What if the cat jumped from a ladder? Would the same people blame the cat? Don’t people get mad at cats for getting into gardens?
I’m so sorry that this happened. But the fact is that the people who live in this house are the reason that the cat didn’t survive. People are so careless. It’s not the cats fault that the owners don’t secure their outdoor property. They put the cat at risk and it wasn’t the cat’s fault.
