    Stray

    I also feel bad for stray cats.  There are too many left behind especially when it is moving time. When people move and can't take their pets with them or if they don't want them anymore, I think it would be wiser if they would bring them to a shelter. Even if our pets are a...

    I Can't Resist

    I've never gone to a pet store to buy a cat. Every cat I have ever owned was a stray I had found. Whenever I see a stray cat walking around my immediate reaction even if it looks quite healthy and well-fed is "AWWWWW look at the poor thing! It hasn't eaten in DAYS!!!". I can't...
