This May, we lost Buddy to bladder cancer at age 18. He was a tiny kitten, probably too young to even be weaned, that the neighbours where we used to live left out in their back yard. We had to keep picking him up when he crawled through the fence to prevent our dogs from killing him. We did return him to them a few times. Their kids put him in their kiddie pool to watch him swim. The next time he crawled through the fence, my mom picked him up & he fell asleep in her arms, so she brought him inside. The neighbours never came looking for him. They got another kitten, probably a sister of Buddy's, that we also re-homed.
What part of "Meow" don't you understand?
We can be part of the problem or part of the solution. Inaction is part of the problem.
