One thing that really irks me is the ignorance surrounding animal rights.  I may be a vegetarian, but I'm not an activist.  I have other reasons.  But what I'm trying to stress is abandoned animals that live one to two years outside or get run over or have their litter sold.  Yes, this happens.  I picked up a very sweet kitty who was abandoned by some stupid college students (the majority of the people who abandoned the animals in my town) and she hasn't been fixed.  How do I know this?  She has been visiting my friend's apartment, meowing.  She had kittens and some morons took them and SOLD THEM, leaving her behind all alone.  I already have two cats and a dog.  I <3 this kitty already but I don't think I can keep her.  I may be leaving for Hong Kong.  I want to, but if I had to keep an animal, I would keep Echo because she is my baby.  However she's super territorial.  Right now the kitty is with me in my room since it's the only room that has a door.  Echo is Siamese and she's freaking out.  ;;sigh.  Today was okay.  Very, very, VERY windy.  I saw Kristen.  I made a friend.  I found typewriter tape and I found a sweetheart of a kitty.  However when I was driving to see Kristen, there was a Husky RUNNING UP THE INTERSTATE.  I actually felt ill.  It was too late for me to stop, so I hope he/she was rescued.  Fingers crossed.

There should be more strict legislation and enforcement of animal cruelty, which it sounds like in the post above.

We have had Siberian huskies for years and you'd be surprised at how fast they are and how easy it is for them to jump a fence.  Huskies are known for running away.  I hope this one is microchipped and picked up by a compassionate driver.

I don't understand how someone can be so irresponsible.  Obviously they can't take care of themselves - why take the life of another living being and then abandon it?  I know what abandonment is like ... it's been a consistent theme throughout my life, so I feel I can really empathize.  It just really makes me ill.  Stupid, stupid people.  This world is contaminated.

Hyeyung...the sad thing is...we are contaminated too and we hurt others.  Try as we might, we are far from perfect.  However, there is hope...we each have the potential to offer something good to counter that bad.  Day in and out, we have those choices.

We can get pretty creative in finding the good we can do :-)))

No one is perfect, you're right - anyone who says they're not a hypocrite is wrong.  We can all be something.

Something, special...like you...in caring about a kitten, a cat and a roaming huskie!  I'd say that puts you in that category!!!!
