THIS IS WHAT BREEDERS GIVE US. Every 2 days this is the kills in a typical county shelter
You profess to be a cat lover--rescuer, even?
DON'T BREED OR BUY WHILE MILLIONS--BILLIONS--OF HOMELESS AND SHELTER ANIMALS DIE!
Hi Kat... thanks for visiting and sharing. I do not know why you are shocked though. Or seemingly annoyed at me. I am shocked and disappointed that you are criticizing this site in the way that you are and feel compelled to defend it.
This website fights for cats. I think of this website as the voice of the cat.
Yes, I do refer to purebred cats and breeders to keep a balance on the site but I and the wonderful visitors to this site fight for cats over and over again (sometimes to the detriment of the site but I still do it).
And I have to question your caption to the photo that you kindly uploaded. In it you suggest that cat breeders are responsible for the mass slaughter of cats at shelters. This is simply not the case. Please provide conclusive evidence to support your statement. Yes, it is hard to justify cat breeding when 2 million cats are killed in shelters each year in the USA but the cause is a lack of a coordinated nationwide program of TNR (trap-neuter-return) coupled with irresponsible cat ownership (failure to neuter and care for non-purebred cats properly).
I have criticized cat shelters. I have criticized the human race in respect of feral cats. We caused the problem and we should fix it humanely.
I have fought against brutal declawing, the persecuted wildcats and in general this site fights to put some balance into the keeping of domestic cats. In short there are hundreds of pages on this site that support and argue for the better treatment of cats. I think that you have simply missed them.
Below are a tiny portion of the many articles that present the euthanasia of cats in the light that you propose. We think alike. Please don't prejudge or criticize without full knowledge of what you are talking about. There are hundreds more like these.
Finally this site gives charitable donations to people and organizations that help the cat. What are you doing to help the cat?
