I Choose Cats Over People

My whole life I have had cats. I remember as a little girl during the snow storm of 93, a pack of dogs came through the neighbor hood and my cats was killed. I remember freezing wearing as many layors of clothing as I could put on and watching from the window all the blood over the snow. Screaming and crying. To this day I have nightmares from that horrible time. I still hold a grudge against dogs and if I had a gun that horrible snowy day those dogs would have met their match. Don't get me wrong I don't hate dogs just like cats better and yes If a cat was in trouble I would do what I could to help the cat. I have a wonderful beautiful dog who in spirit is more like a cat. She wouldn't hurt a flea or cat for that matter. My cats through the years have been my best friends. You get so close to these animals they became apart of you and your life. I wish all people felt the same.

I WISH EVERY ONE COULD HAVE ANIMALS AND SAVE ANIMALS. IT BOTHERS ME WHEN I FACE THE FACTS THAT 99% OF SHELTER CATS ARE EUTHANIZED. I FOUND A ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUP CALLED ALLEY CAT ALLIES AND THEY HELP KEEP THE POPULATION DOWN BY SPAY/ NEUTER RELEASE PROGRAM OF STRAYS. I WOULD MUCH RATHER THAT STRAYS GET ADOPTED AND SPAYED AND NEUTERED BUT ITS GOOD THAT THEY DO ATLEAST HAVE A FIGHTING CHANCE AT LIVING INSTEAD OF STUCK IN A CAGE AND KILLED BY THE THOUSANDS EACH WEEK. I LOVE ANIMALS AND HAVE RESPECT FOR ALL LIFE, EXCEPT FOR ANIMAL ABUSERS, SERIAL KILLERS, THEIVES, RAPIST-THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT SOULD BE EUTHANIZED !

Sorry to hear. That must have been horrible.

I've been reading your posts and you're breaking my heart. I too love cats and have had them most of my life. When my X left, she left the cats with me, thankfully, for they never let me down.<br />

How horrible to see your loving cats die in such a traumatic way! I'm speechless. I hope it helps at least a little to know that as least someone cares.

I envy you ... I need love and afection and I need to give and I know a dog would perfect for me and would make my days less bitter but damn I live in an apartment with my parents and all I can do is dream about the day I will have my own house.<br />
Be happy and love you animal because some people don't have even that.

I'm sorry that cats give you blisters. I really do love animals. I guess because people lots of time intentionally hurt each other and animals do to survive (except for some mean dogs at times)

Haha... this story reminds me so much of my sister. Her goal is to one day save all the stray dogs, cats, etc. and "likes animals more than people". I don't blame you or her... even though cats give me blisters.
