Read the comments, some from people who have BEEN there, and volunteered there (to help, not to conspire against them).

PETA’s at it again
April 12, 2012 - By Francis Battista - ( 107 Comments )

In a letter to the mayor of Albuquerque, PETA asserted that city employees are guilty of illegally abandoning animals. This is on the heels of Best Friends partnering with the city of Albuquerque in an exciting new community cat project that will save thousands of cats’ lives.

PETA is concerned that the city’s practice of neutering community cats and handing them over to rescue groups to be returned to the area where they were trapped poses an unacceptable risk to the cats’ well-being. This from an organization that, in February of this year, staunchly defended the fact that in 2011 they killed 95 percent of the animals who had the misfortune of entering their Virginia headquarters, and they did so with a degree of pride. Perhaps it was simply pride in their efficiency at killing homeless pets since it was reported that 84 percent were killed within the first 24 hours, presumably with little or no effort to find them adoptive homes or provide needed veterinary care.

So by PETA’s self-referenced logic, adult cats who have demonstrated the ability to thrive in the community are better off dead than being fixed and returned to the same location where they were thriving, even though they can no longer reproduce.

What are they thinking?

Is it this? “Hey, kitty kitty, it’s way too dangerous for you out here where you’ve been living for years, so we’re going to take charge of your tiny, tragic, risk-filled life, and, well, we’re going to put an end to all that stress that you thought was a life. All of your worries will be over. Yes, kitty, we’re going to kill you.”

If this isn’t the height of anthropomorphic arrogance, I don’t know what is!

How afraid of risk does one have to get to come to the conclusion that killing cats and kittens to protect them from life is a good idea?

PETA has long promoted the notion that when it comes to shelter animals and strays, killing is kindness. That’s the ethic behind their opposition to the no-kill movement, adoption of pit bull terriers from shelters, and community cat colonies of any type. It is why we cannot remain silent as PETA actively works to sabotage progressive lifesaving programs across the United States.

The next time you hear PETA proclaim that killing is kindness, I hope you hear their real message — life is too risky to be lived.

PETA sux.
Their priorities are all f'd up.
As I said of both them and ACPCA, if they were really concerned about the welfare of the CATS and not their own agendas, they would have helped Craig improve any deficiencies they perceived at the Caboodle Ranch and not just shut it down and terrorized all the cats living there.

Kitty update....
Kitties' favorite food.

Usually kitty gets tired of certain foods and wants something new. After a while that gets old, and kitty wants something else again.
Not so with this kitty kibble, at least for my Kitties Four.

Purina cat chow Naturals.


The crew always has dry food in their kibble bowl to munch on at their leisure. I fill half the bowl with Naturals, and the other half with a variety of other flavors so they have a choice.
Guess which half of the bowl always empties first....
And this has been for well over a year now.

It's good stuff, no food colorings, high protein, small little kibblets so it's easy for them to crunch. Give it a try, your kitty may like it!!!

This has been a service of the Kitty News Network.

Meow!

perryjay...

There is some news on the Caboodle Ranch front....

It seems that the few uninvolved kitties taken hostage taken may be soon returned home......thank God.

And may the rest of them soon be returned to the land of the free and the home of the meow.

And for all of us that love kitties.......
Sadly, there are still so many in need of homes.

Oshkosh Humane Society asking community to adopt 100 cats in 10 days....

I have been working 11 hour shifts, and some additional OT on Fridays.
Maybe I can give another donation to my favorite kitty savers.

Fox Valley Humane Association is about 10 miles to my west.
The Oshkosh Humane Society mentioned in the article is about 20 miles to my south.

Soooooooooooo many kitties. I truly wish one day I would win the lottery. You have to know that kitties would be one of the biggest winners.

Meowsigh.

And I have made another small donation to the FVHA......

Only $25.00, but the kitties are not big in kibble these days.

$25.00 gets you a little plaque in one of the kitty meet and greet rooms.
"In memory of Lori's beloved......Oscar."

Wish it could have been more....but, another day.

Sent this message along with the gift....

"We have adopted from you. And shall again when there is a vacancy at one of our homes. Hope it is not too soon, but my eldest is now 17yo and on thyroid meds. Lori's dear kitty Starbucks came from your little glass room in the reception area."
