Rome, Georgia: Another case of “we got a new puppy so the cat has to go”

This sad case comes out of Rome, Georgia (USA) and is a story often heard by people who follow shelter cats on social media. This beautiful cat was surrendered because the family got a new puppy.

Gray was dumped because the family got a new puppy
Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

Her name is Gray and she’s a young female dilute calico. Gray is available for adoption for $35 at Public Animal Welfare Services in Rome, Georgia.

Please share her story, as being an owner-surrendered kitty, she may be killed for space at any time. Or she may catch the dreaded kitty cold. A lot of things could happen to this beauty if she isn’t adopted or rescued soon.

People, if you’re planning on getting a new puppy, please consider whether the resident cat will get along with it. This is the same type of “adopter” (and I use that word loosely) who will return the puppy to the shelter when it gets old or sick, or when the family gets bored and wants to experience a new puppy.

You can keep up with Gray on her Facebook thread.

I also think people who surrender the family cat under these circumstances should be put on some kind of list to prevent them from adopting from the shelter. Agreed?

  1. Cats are still seen as disposable pets. However understand the mentality of the humans here. When puppy becomes a problem it probably won’t fare much better.
