Man's Worst Friend

I've been trying to find another cat and the reasons that people give them up is appalling. Seems like first thing that happens when someone start having sex, is that they'll just ditch their cat to move in together.

There are so many reasons why someone has to give up a pet! I hate the holier-than-thou attitude of people who haven't been faced with that type of painful decision. I had a cat that I took from someone who wasn't able to care for him, and I did my best for about 12 years of complete hell with him. He was a terrible cat!! Could be sweet but mostly was an a-hole. I've had many cats in my life and I love them, but this guy was one that would make any animal lover rethink. I also had a dog; a wonderful, sweet, loving dog. I was renting, and had no choice but to move. Have you seen how incredibly difficult it is to find a rental that takes pets in this city??? If you think just finding ANYTHING to rent is hard, try finding a place that accepts pets! Finally I found one, but I could only have one animal. The cat was 16, was an a-hole from birth, and my dog was my best friend . Which one do you think won that coin toss? I took care of him for all those years because someone else couldn't , and I would have continued to do so until he died, but because of my financial situation and the ridiculous pet restrictions in this city, I had no choice but to relinquish him. I loved him but he was hell to live with, and made my difficult life just that much more stressful. Don't judge unless you've walked in someone else's shoes!!

I actually haven't found that, at the SPCA anyway. The cruelty investigations are heartbreaking, but the stories of cats ending up at the shelter because of people who had to move into care facilities or were forced to move and couldn't find housing that allowed cats or people whose pets outlived them are heartbreaking in a different way.

Holy hell man, have you considered a career in stand up comedy? Your insightful and biting witticism above is just too original and funny.

When I moved in with a woman who had a kid with allergies, it was a hard 4 years for my cats having to live outside in the yard, but lo and behold, I left her and then my cats came with me to my NEXT place and lived for another decade happily together.

Whose places reeked of cat shit and piss. I'm not talking just a little here. This was like a solid wall of stench. The cats would do their little break dance in the overflowing litter box before walking on all the cooking surfaces and making me think back to all my microbiology classes. One cat even had large smears of shit permanently plastered to it's anus. It would prance around on the cutting board before jumping down with a light cat thud. I toughed it out because life is rarely perfect and the sex was ok.

Also I've had a couple of roomies simply abandon their cat at my house when they moved. It was crazy.

So while I like animals, it seems like often enough people who should never have cats are the ones who do. Same goes for kill dogs and children.

Animals are property.
I don't get this ridiculous attitude where people think animals are as or more important than people.
People should not feel guilt or shame for using an animal in any way at all. Animals are at most property, and insofar as the government regulates their use, they have made us all slaves.
