Abandoning Outdoor Cats

You let them out periodically, you feed them, they cuddle with you on the couch, you give them a name and take care of their needs. I’ve heard some disturbing news recently where some people who have adopted an outdoor cat, abandon that cat when they move!

You know what I’m going to say about this! These people are not animal lovers and have no right owning and caring for a pet. Period! end of story!  I don’t understand how someone can abandon a beloved pet. The only answer that I come up with is that these type of people are self centered and agree to adopt an outside cat because their child want it or they are amused to see this cat appearing in their yard and started feeding it. This is the wrong reason to adopt people.

My cat Molly who is now 17 1/2 years old and is cuddled next to me as I write this was a feral cat. I was coming home from work, parked my car in my garage and heard a tiny meow coming from a car in the parking lot of my complex. I looked under the car and there was Molly, alone only 5 weeks old. She walked over to me. I picked her up and took her inside. The moment I picked her up and took her in, she belonged to me and became part of myfamily. She goes where I  go.

It is the same thing when you adopt a cat who goes in and out! I’ll always say there are very cruel people out there! If for some reason you can’t take your pet with you, you make arrangements for her adoption. Take some responsibility, it’s your duty!
