    New kitty

    I adopted a new kitty about a month ago. Don't get on here much but wanted to introduce Dasher. He is about 6 months old. He was neutered last week. Its a long story but he was very neglected and had ring worms, tape worms, and round worms. He lived near my daughter and after trying to save one of their kitties that died we got tired of finding Dasher outside and forgotten. They said it was the children's responsibility (all children are under 6!)

    I have tried to attach his picture with no luck(hopefully 10 don't show up!)
    don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....

    God bless you for taking Dasher home! Thank you so much for opening your hearts to him and giving him the kind of care and love he has deserved all along. May you and he live happily ever after!

    I just hate these alleged-people who are so lackadaisical (if that's the word I really want) about pet care. "..the responsibility of three children under 6 years," and when they weren't doing the job, the adults didn't step in to take over.

    Death thought about it.

    Yes exactly, and how exactly do these parents think the children should learn from? Its very sad, they have a german shepherd that they leave outside 24 hours a day, he barks non stop because he is lonely. I don't understand why they keep getting pets, supposedly the husband is allergic so the mom just throws them outside. I just hope they don't replace Dasher. They had a 5 week old kitty that they said someone gave them at a gas station, my daughter asked them if she could take over his care, she took him to the vet but it was too late and he passed away. Mind you my daughter is a single mother of twins. These people will not spend one dollar on their pets care. In the month I have had Dasher I have had so many issues to treat but he is so worth it he is such a sweet boy. I also got him microchipped but I don't plan on letting him out but he tries to get out when the door is opened because they let him outside.

    Thanks for talking this kitten in and caring so much.

    How sad that the other one didn't make it. Of course, children under six have no clue how to care for them. That family should not be allowed to have any pets!

    Do you have Animal Control in your city or county? Some officials or agency that you could report this family to, that would take the German Shepherd and any other animals away from them?

    I'm glad that you were able to save Dasher. I have seen many parents setting bad examples for their children when it comes to pet care.
    As phesina said, maybe you could report these people to some authority.

    I think all of the neighbors have had it with these people. I think they have been reported. But since they aren't starving and left out in severe wheather I guess nothing is being done.

    Karen I will try to find your email address and email you.

    Karen, I emailed you at [email protected], I got that from the "nominate your pet" tab. In the old days we would put it on photobucket, I haven't gotten on there in years, do we still do it that way?

    Thanks!

    Hey Karen, got photos of Lily but can't upload them. Can you tell me how, or how to send them to you so you can do it? Pretty please. Thanks.
