I went to check out the abandoned kitty thing after work today. (see prev. journal)

It was sleeping peacefully by a flower stand. Looked well-fed and in good shape, so I was relieved.

It was kind of funny at first, I think the guy thought I was trying to steal the kitty or something

"Hi, I'm sorry, is this cat yours?"
"It's theirs, why?"
"Oh, I was just told there was an abandoned black cat with a red collar here"
"Uh..who told you that?"
"I'm part of a animal right network, and I received a message saying that this cat had been spotted here"
"Oooh. Nah, she's belongs to the people in that building there. They feed her and everything. Name's Samantha"

She was a cutie. The guy seemed really grateful that I stopped to ask about her. He was like "thanks a lot, lady!"

I feel good.

Aww... kitty...

I want to be part of the pet police!

You should, then. It's really hard, getting 10+ desperate emails a day, which you know you can't do anything about.

Then again it's also really rewarding when you DO get to help out.

I wish I could. I really do. But I think it would break my hurt. I hate seeing/hearing animals in distress, and their owners who want nothing more than to have them back.

I did think about volunteering at and MSPCA adoption clinic. But it is just too far away.

But wouldn't it warm your heart knowing you saved the animals?
12 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 11/27/08 - 7:19:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know. I always want to volunteer at shelters and they're always too far away. In any case, there's always ways to help. Even forwarding emails for adoptions, etc. There's SO much to do, I can't even believe. Okay, I'll shut up

How do you get into something like that? I mean... I've never really researched it.

And Macarena, it would, but knowing someone abused that animal would fill me with rage. Uncontrollable, blind, rage. I would track that person down, and HURT them in unmentionable ways.

I feel exactly the same way, VIII. There are many ways. Being in the US you can contact PETA and many other animal rights foundations. I'm in this group called "pet network" where they promote adoptions, free neutering, and there are several hundreds of members. Every time one of us sees something, we send an email which goes out to ALL members. Whoever is close to that area will go and check it out and see what can be done. I get so many emails a day... there is so much to do. It's heartbreaking. But you have to work past the heartbreak and keep going. It's always better than doing nothing at all. They're completely helpless little things.

Huh, thanks pegasus, I'll look into it.

So was it a lie peg? did they mae you worry when it belonged to someone after all?
12 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 11/27/08 - 7:31:46 PM EST (GMT-5)


Not a lie, just someone from the group who was concerned because the cat was there alone on a busy street and it could have been run over. It had an ID tag, as well, so the person thought it was a lost cat that someone was probably looking for. Thankfully it was neither of those.

ohhhh ok!
