Mum thought you would like to see these pictures of me walking around the garden. She wanted to say that she watched the Oprah show on puppy mills last week. Boy, that made her sad. It talked about in the US where demand for cats and dogs at pet stores, has resulted in breeders breeding cats and dogs in cages like chickens and other livestock. Many of these breeding mothers never get any medical care, never get to run around, never leave their cages and most importantly never get any love.
It said that 99% of pets in pet stores are bred this way(in the US). Then at shelters people are not adopting the cat, kittens, puppies and dogs there reslulting in thousands being put down every day. That bit made my mum cry. All those lovely pets being destroyed because people don't understand.
Now mum bought me from a nice breeder. She interviews you and won't let her kittens go to just anyone, and you have to go and visit with her before you can take your kitty home. She was a vet nurse too, and lived on a large rural property with lots of rooms for her kitties and their parents.
All the other kitties mum has ever got have been from either a friend, been stray cats or have come from a shelter. Mum says that she knows lots of other beans were shocked by this show too. Please if you would like a cat or kitten to join your family, please visit your local shelter and give a wee sweetie a furrever home.
