Talk about a play on the "Feline-anthropy" of kids.
My friend and I took our children to Families in the Park last Thursday. Our children spotted a woman holding a kitten and immediately ran up to her to pet it. The woman said she was giving it away and would they walk around with the kitty to help find a home for it? The children did as she asked and when no takers could be found, they went to return the kitten to the woman. You can guess the rest; she was nowhere to be found. To whoever you are out there -- we'd like to tell you this: that was a cruel act you committed, not only in abandoning the kitten but in your blatant exploitation of the innocence and benevolence of children. In case you're wondering, we took the kitty to Alpine Veterinary Hospital to have the fleas removed as well as to have it de-wormed. After spending the day trying to find a home for this kitten, we took him to Tucker Road Animal Hospital where he is currently up for adoption. He's an adorable, sweet and loving little thing. If anyone's interested in him, please call Tucker Road Animal Hospital. A big thanks to both Alpine Veterinary and Tucker Road Animal Hospitals for all their time, empathy and compassion.
