Fix the animals in the Elk Valley

Hi – remember me? I’m the kitten you fell in love with and just had to have. You promised to feed me, love me and take care of me. And when the time came to get me the operation so I didn’t burden you with lots of kittens, in return I “promised” to use the litter box, keep myself clean and love you. I kept my end of the bargain and you did except for the operation. You put me in a box in the car and off we went (not too far) and then you dumped me off and left. I was all alone, no food, no shelter and no love. I found shelter and food, thanks to the lady who lives where you left me. I have had a batch of kittens and will probably have more. I no longer trust humans so no one can catch or touch me. I just wish I knew what I did wrong for you to do this to me.

This may sound silly or a little crazy to you readers but I’m sure it’s what goes through abandoned cats minds.

Personally, I’m tired of people being irresponsible and just dumping unwanted animals off. Remember when you take an animal (dog or cat) if the females aren’t fixed at 6 months they will reproduce. Be responsible or don’t take the animal. What do you do with your kids when you get frustrated?
