My spouse says I will be the little old lady that is running down the road with a shopping cart of cats. =) So, I love cats more than the average person, but someone needs to love them and look out for them. To me, they are the innocent.
If we lived in a perfect world there would be no homeless pets! I'm a strong supporter of spaying and neutering family pets and TNRing the
homeless pet population. It's the best way to control the pet over population. I think children should learn in public school about responsible pet ownership. And anyone adopting a pet at a shelter should sign a legal contract stating they will provide a life time home for the pet that they are adopting. That they will not abandon their pet and will seek medical treatment for their pet. But, this isn't a perfect world and that is why there are people like me.
