I live in the Middle EAst

We live in the Middle East and get hack for keeping our 2 lovely strays that were starving and beaten on the streets here. We just could not turn a blind eye. Instead of people treating us as crazy nice foreigners who took 2 "problems" off their streets, they treat us as crazy people.

People cross the street, children taunt them--on a daily basis.

We are going back to the "West" asap as we are very tired of this harrassment on a daily basis.

We respect religion. But we have no time for physical harrassment. There are ofcourse no animals rights here, nor shelters. It is dire.

I think it is great that you took these two in and gave them a loving home! Unfortunately, not everyone shares the same views on animals as the people on this board. If they did, our shelters wouldn't be filled to the brim with unwanted pets.

Once again, welcome!
