Hope you can see that picture of a beautiful blue-eyed kitten tied by the rope to a pole. As I've understood this is what they do to cats in Vietnam. While dogs are allowed to roam the area with no restrictions, cats spend their life on ropes.
You can see how horrified and miserable that kitty is. I've lost my sleep since I saw this by accident on the www.picturescloset.com. I had to contact the site administrator to get permission to post this picture here.
There are quite a few cats seen on the leash walking around the Central Park in Manhattan. None of them seemed to mind. In fact, they were proudly deciding where to go, and their Moms would kneel down and crawl around the grass and the bushes together with their furry babies. But this is different.
This story was supposed to be about the cat's behavior, but it really is about human's. How is it possible? Is that really true? Does anybody know anything about treatment of pets in Vietnam? I do not know much about the Vietnamese culture ...but my heart is bleeding.
