FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla: Almost impossible to feed homeless people. No chance for homeless cats. — 11 Comments

  1. When compassion and kindness become criminal acts you know your society is in danger.I am appalled by these bans on people and cats. There is something wrong with people these days.

    • When compassion and kindness become criminal acts you know your society is in danger

      That sums it up nicely Geri. It is difficult balance I believe but this is crazy. I am convinced that business is behind this. It is like China clearing up (killing) all the stray cats before the Beijing Olympics.

  2. Dee irrespective of size, I think there’s a huge difference in cultural attitudes between our nations.

    I hope the authorities are suitably ashamed when they realise this news story has gone global. Arresting a 90 year old man for feeding homeless people (or animals for that matter) is despicable.

  3. This is crazy and cruel. I’ve signed that petition and left a few choice comments regarding the arrest of Arnold Abbott.

    No offence to our American friends, but the more I hear about the U.S. the more I appreciate life in the U.K.

    • Me too, sometimes, Michele.
      But, I always have to keep in mind that we are 40 times larger than the UK. And, change comes more slowly here.
      I love this 90 year old man who would rather face jail than let the homeless go hungry. He’s a hero.

  4. “POVERTY” exists in every Country, only difference being the levels and methods of determining the same in every country.If people can’t get food and shelter then imagine the plight of stray animals on the street. Luckily in most Indian city’s stray animals are not euthanized but allowed to exist in the wild street life.

  5. I’m disgusted and ashamed by this.
    What chance does a homeless cat have to get a morsel of food when a 90 year old person is going to jail for feeding homeless people?
    It’s insane. And, I won’t even go into how any American could possibly be hungry in this country.
    I’m going to read up on their animal ordinances and expect that I will become enraged.
    Stand back!

    • America is famed for being rich. It is a good country. One of the very best. Yet because of business interests influencing politicians the most vulnerable are shunned and brushed under the carpet — not good, and it bodes very badly for all the vulnerable including homeless cats.
