My Dad Has No Soul

"When man learns to respect even the smallest being of creation, whether animal or vegetable, nobody has to teach him to love his fellow man. Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character , and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man." -Albert Schweitzer. My dad doesn't kick them or anything like that, but I wanted to bring a cat home just for the night so I could take him somewhere that would take him in and feed him and make sure he was properly loved. My dad shot that down :/ Everytime I think of that cat that needs help I begin to cry. Hell, I'm doing it now! I don't understand how anyone can be so mean to an animal. You don't like cats, ok, whatever, but at least let me help the poor thing.

It comes down to prejudices developed from having experienced the destructive capability's of animals to personal possessions and expenses he probably wants to avoid, maybe.
