I like to watch animal cops. Not all the stories turn out happy but it makes you feel so good watching the ones that do. For the life of me I'll never understand how anyone can be cruel to an animal. All they really want is to be loved and they love you back unconditionally. If you don't want a pet, THEN DON'T GET ONE!!!!! It's that simple.
The show I watched yesterday infuriated me. I don't know how the animal cops can do what they do day after day and not want to take the law into their own hands and dish out some eye for an eye punishment! You cut an animal's ears off, we cut yours off. You set them on fire, we set you on fire. Is that unreasonable? Okay, okay, I know it is. But honestly, it breaks your heart when you hear about some of the abuse that goes on.
A lady brought a beautiful dark gray cat into the vets and said she didn't want it anymore. The poor thing didn't have any front paws. When asked about it, she said her ex-boyfriend tied rubber bands around the cat's paws real tight. The vet said the cat would have been in agony for a long time before the paws fell off.
The cat was absolutely beautiful, and despite how she'd been treated, had the sweetest personality. She'd learned to walk without her paws but was unable to groom her face like cats like to do. So they found someone to adopt her that would take the time to groom her face every day. And of course she had to be kept as an indoor cat, too.
I don't know if the cops were able to hold anyone accountable for her condition. It turned into a he said/she said situation.
I have three little fur balls. God help ANYONE who tries to hurt one!
