This site does little to educate owners.
I live in a 2 BR townhouse with no yard. I live with a senior cat, a middle aged cat and a young cat (Still a kitten until April- under two). I work and commute a 60 hour week that is about to get worse, my partner, a 50 hour week.
We are RESPONSIBLE pet owners. To introduce new animals to our already stressed family would be HIGHLY irresponsible.
I personally cannot wear the weight of the world on only my shoulders. And I resent the guilt game.
Fortunately, my mother got frequent flyer miles on her guilt trips so I am somewhat immune.
Regardless, using guilt as a trigger only insures that more, not fewer, animals are destroyed.
Choose your pets responsibly. Do only what you KNOW you can do. And support your local no-kill shelter.
Until we consistently practise responsible pet ownership, sites like this will flourish. Spay or neuter your pet today!
