    Even worse is the ones we find "dumped" in the park. At least this woman is trying to find a home! Not that I agree with this, but "dumping" is even worse!
    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers

    That is to bad the kitten has to find a new home. Sometimes breeders give up there cats who can't breed any more, think this could be the case?

    There are many legitimate reasons she might be having to find the cat a new home. Please don't assume the worst of everyone. She/he is at least taking the responsibility to find a new home for it, hasn't dumped it at a shelter with no explanation, sent it out to "fend for itself" in "the country" of anything.

    i agree. Maybe the lady is elderly and just can't keep it anymore or there could other reasons. Maybe she is doing it for the best of the cat. The cat will find a good home instead of being put in a shelter.

    Since I work at a shelter some, I see the ones that no one wants, beautiful, loving cats, all breeds and all beautiful. I wonder if these people try to find these wonderful babies homes before they dump there there? We got 3 absolutelt beautiful dolls in there just this week.... What gets me is they turn them in with their collars still on them sometimes..

    Our Humane Society has two lovely cats up for adoption. They are 9 and 5, declawed, and were turned in because of a new baby in the house!!!!! Now THAT makes me furious.

    Catlady1945,

    Me too!! The stupid, irresponsible pet owners are the ones that have no clue as to what the word COMMITMENT means.

    I remember one time young couple came into the shelter to surrender their cat that they had since they were first married. They just had a baby. I looked at them and said, "So, what're ya gonna do when your kid is no longer cute and is in the terrible 2 stage, surrender him???" Boy did I get in trouble for THAT remark. But I don't care.

    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02
    Mollie Rose, you were there for me through good times and in bad, from the beginning.Your passing will leave a hole in my heart.We will be together "One Fine Day". 1994-2009
    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
