My bride, Jenny, and I ended up unexpectedly rescuing another kitten this past week. It's really a long and sad story, so I'll stick to the happy ending...this is our newest addition to our family-Leah! Though I never thought I would blog about adopting a pet, I'm happy to tell the story...I think it'll be a good one.
So by all means, do support your local animal shelter. They need food, litter, and donations. Also, there's nothing wrong with simply calling and asking them what they are in desperate need of. I'm pretty sure they will be most willing to tell you. Do good things AR!
I used to think Bob Barker was a little mental as we went on about how important it is to spade and neuter you pets. Well, I'm eating my words today as I encourage folks, who are not in it for the breeding, to spade and neuter your pets. And do not be afraid to befriend a stray, it could be a good way to help that little cat by leading it to a new home.
The handling of unknown animals/strays should be done with extreme caution if at all. Strays should be considered a "wild" animal and in some cases it is best to contact Animal Control. REMEMBER, safety first!
