About Cats: I am angry and confident! — 18 Comments

  1. Mr. Michael Broad, you NEVER! give up in your quest for kindness, whether it be a cat or a butterfly, eagle or human. We stand behind you! Thank You for all that you do.

    [You need to look angrier –I know that you have so much compassion that it’s difficult for you.

    • Thanks Rose. It is tough, as I am sure you know, being someone who cares about animals in a world that, in general, does not care anywhere near enough.

  2. Well said Michael!
    You have every right to feel angry and every right to write about it too.
    Behind all the articles you write is a compassionate man who cares about cats worldwide. You can’t do what you do without becoming angry about so much abuse of cats and without being frustrated about only being able to do so much to help them.
    Stay confident!!!
    You are RIGHT to do what you are doing, right to write of the good and the bad side of people, right to write educational and informative articles and right to have your say, no matter who may take offence if they are over sensitive.
    People who care about cats are passionate people!
    It’s not all one sided, we PoC visitors have our say un-moderated too, even though all of us may not always like some other’s comments, we may learn from them.
    How else can we change the world for the better for ALL cats if we can’t openly speak the truth!

      • Join the club Michael lol many times people don’t understand me either but I am who I am and I won’t change just to please other people.
        You shouldn’t feel bad about being angry, you should feel good that your anger is productive in that it makes you fight even harder to help cats worldwide.

        • Thank you Ruth. Sometimes I wish I did not care. I wish I was a mainstream person. But as you say, we are what we are and we have to live according to our consciences and with our consciences.

        • I always used to avoid anything that made me angry but now I usually try to confront it but without being disrespectful. Anger can be respectful but it’s hard to do – but it’s probably the ‘right’ way to face and deal with those things.

    • Ruthie, our Ruth who is not our Ruth, without our other Ruthie, you, and every other kind soul here, makes our world of suffering a little bit gentler, kinder. A stronger world. In the best possible understanding. My goodness, what you just wrote for us, Ruthie, was eloquent.

        • Our advocate against de-clawing. You need to continue coming on strong like you do, especially towards those countries like the one that I reside in.

          • Thanks Caroline, we will never give up until declawing is banned worldwide.
            More people know the truth now and word is spreading but we are up against the money grabbing vets who pretend they have to do it for the good of cats, their main excuse is that it keeps them in their homes. It doesn’t! But they won’t admit it!
            Three of us in the UK spent years gathering Shelter statistics of declawed cats for Dr Jean Hofve who was trying to prove that, but it was a waste of time, just like my petition with 4,000+ signatures was.
            But one day we will wipe the smile off those greedy vets faces, that’s a promise!

            • Ruth, why was that a waste of time? The three of you and Dr. Jean Hofve? You inspired me, when I took up my laptop this morning!

              • Hi Caroline, we discovered that no records were kept of the number of declawed cats killed on admission to Shelters because of problems from being declawed. So the figures were distorted and we couldn’t prove there are many more declawed cats relinquished than clawed ones.
                We did a study too on the excuses why cats were relinquished.
                It was heart breaking stuff so I hope maybe Jean got something useful out of it.
