I like to think & wish it were true that all domesticated animals had uch good l ives.
UnfortunatelyI've seen too manyexamples of otherwise treated creatures: dogs tied up on a hot summer day, ow/o access to shade or water.On a cold windy winter day w/o shelter..obviously given too little ood ( their ribs were too rominent; shivering &pitiful.I tried talking to thehumans in thehome,ut they, in my opinion were less than human;made me ashamed to be of the same species as them.
It'sso oodto know folkslike you stil exist, somewhere.

In Response to Re: ARE YO R PETS A PART OF YOUR FAMILY OR MERELY POSESSIONS??????????????????? : I also had a Russian Blue,he was found in our yard ,probably hit by a car.His hip and pelvis were broken.I took him to my vet and he was in a splint for 4 weeks,I had to hold him over the litter box :) My mother was reluctant to let me keep him because of our 2 adult dogs who had no contact with cats.I named the cat Amigo.Amigo was kept in a baby crib away from the dogs.A few days after bringing the cat in the dogs forced their way in to see the cat,well they smelled him and walked away.After that we just left the door open and the dogs would go and see Amigo.After the cat was all healed up, the two dogs Duke and Duchess would sleep on my bed with Amigo.I had Amigo my friend for 12 years,he was the sweetest cat,always there to greet me when I came home, happy and purring .That was 29 years ago and I still miss him,he possessed my heart.I had a nick name for him I called him monkey :) I have nick names for all my guys.
