Pet-owners Make Me Sick

What I hate is people who buy pets and then kick them outside when they realize that it’s an actual living thing they’ve adopted. I hate people who think pets are toys for their kids and turn a blind eye when their children abuse them like stuffed dolls. I hate people who won’t spend a dime to take their animals to the vet but will run out and buy luxuries for themselves or family. I hate people who get puppies at 6 weeks and then put them in the pound at 6 months when they start teething. I hate people who give up cats because they scratch on their furniture. I hate petowners!

My Dad has thrown my 4 primarily-indoor cats outside indefinately because HIS FRIENDS are making fun that his house smells like cats. Well duh, maybe because cats live there. I don't understand, he hates his friends, yet abuses my animals to appease them. Other unneutered cats have been coming around, and my cats have been spraying as a result. He buys them cheap food, so they keep throwing up. He won't give me money to take them to the vet but he'll give me money to go buy clothes. Now I have to watch them sit at the glass screen door all day waiting to come in.

People think that a pet is an easy responsibility. A thing that you feed and look at. Keep it outside and you don’t even have to clean up after it. Keeps your kids occupied and since it doesn’t have feelings, keeps them from beating each other up. Everyone’s happy. People do really bad things to animals when they are trying, but its horrifying the things they can do to animals when they’re not even trying:

A substitute teacher at Veterans Park Academy for the Arts was charged with animal cruelty on March 28 after sheriff's deputies found a dog that had been left for hours in her car at the school. Deputies learned that the dog, a basset named Bailey, had been locked in the vehicle for six hours with no water and minimal ventilation.

A Brooklyn man was pinched for allegedly starving his Cane Corso breed dog for two years. Gary Mapp, 39, was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty for allegedly keeping 2-year-old Obi chained with no water or food in a concrete area behind his Bushwick house.

Police charged a city woman with cruelty to animals. The Meriden Animal Hospital contacted police Jan. 13, 2006 after it was forced to euthanize a cat that had been brought in for treatment, police spokesman Sgt. Lenny Caponigro said. The cat, which had been adopted from the Meriden Humane Society in July 2005, was severely dehydrated and emaciated and had no chance of survival, a hospital employee told police.

NEWSFLASH! Pets are People too, since you’re supposed to treat them like a member of the family. A lot of people think a puppy is a play-baby, and get one to practice. Stupid. Get a puppy for the sake of getting a puppy, not to practice on and then impound once you get pregnant. Don’t just get a cat to please your kids and then kick them outside when you don’t take care of them. Ever heard of shaken-baby syndrome? Kittens get it too. That’s why you shouldn’t get young children pets. ANIMALS ARE NOT TOYS! They have feelings and need love and attention just like humans do. If you don’t PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR ANIMALS, it is neglect, and that is abuse, and that is a crime.

Its as simple as that.

A lot of hating out of you today. If your Dad buys them cheap food . . .and they are YOUR cats . . .that makes YOU responsible . . .so get your ass to PetsMart, Wal-Mart, or even K-Mart and buy them something they like.

If you dont want to see them at the door . . .shut the blinds. If the house smells like cats . . .get some Febreeze when you are out getting that Fancy Feast.

You seem to be big on responsibility . . . time to practice some :o) Those cats arent from Mexico are they?????

Hey dude, its my dad's house. He makes the rules, not me. Have you ever owned an animal? "Shutting the blinds" doesn't take care of cats. Febreeze only works so well, and canned cat-food is bad for cats, especailly Iams and Fancy Feast seeing as the way they are shipped allows bacteria to cultivate in them (Iams food had worms in it when I bought it).

Since you guys seem to be the only religious readers of my blog, if you guys are so offended by the Carlos Mencia clip I posted, I will remove it. I personally thought it was a halarious depiction of the other side. This site is a fun project, not a serious investment.
