My Cat Ava
by lori piazza
I’ll introduce this very short posting by a visitor. I feel I have to but I have reservations about doing this. I just feel that it shows us a slice of real life. You have to use your imagination to fill in the gaps. Lori’s words are published verbatim for maximum reality.
My cat ava went in to my nabers year and got shot 4 mounts after she was boren. My nader got charjed with cilling my cat. She was the best thing that ever came my way.
I hope you don’t mind Lori. With the greatest of respect your English is very poor. I don’t know why it is. Perhaps you are very young. That could well be the case. In which case these few words are even more poignant.
For visitors who don’t understand Lori, she is saying that her four month old kitten wandered into her neighbor’s yard and was shot by her neighbor. Her cat was very important to her. The neighbor was charged with a crime (good!).
Is it just me misreading the situation or am I correct in getting the impression that a lot of cats get shot in the USA?
I know I keep writing about it but it just happens a lot.
Also most visitors to this site are Americans so I end up learning a lot about America and the way of life there.
Perhaps though I an getting a jaundiced (incorrect) idea in respect of the tendency of neighbors, who dislike cats, to shoot them when they enter their back yard.
Maybe someone can enlighten me?
