a bad awakening

At about 5:30 am this morning I was woken up by dogs barking outside and then 5 minutes later a cat screaming, I jumped out of bed and ran outside into the rain barefoot to see what was going on, two other neighbors were running out at the same time. I saw two dogs run by me that I had never seen before in the neighborhood. The man that came out was looking under a car saying "oh no". The dogs got a hold of a cat, he is a homeless cat that we feed, he was pretty messed up, covered in mud because the dogs drug him through muddy water. I called animal control but in my town they tell you they don't care about cats deal with it yourself. So I called an emergency vet and took him in, they examined him but decided it was best to put him to sleep so he didn't suffer anymore. They did it for free but I had to bring the cat back to bury so the neighbor man is going to bury him in his yard. Why don't people just take care of their pets, it makes me so angry. I'm a huge animal lover but at that moment I would not have hesitated to shoot them dogs if I had a gun. Okay maybe I would. I'm thankful my cats were in the house.
Yesterday I took my grand kitty to be spayed and last night she started chewing her stitches out so my son bought a cone collar and took her to his girlfriends house where they can watch her.
Ave goes off to camp on the coast today, no school, not for 17 Fridays this year, no money to pay the teachers. Where did Obamas stimulus money go? Gee I wonder. I have a busy day so I better get started. Have a nice weekend

That is so sad. Poor kitty. I am glad that you were there to take care of him. You are a very sweet girl.

Have a good weekend, Sharon

So glad you were able to help the kitty even though it was only to put it out of pain. Most people would have done nothing. Have a blessed weekend

Oh Dana, I am sorry you had to go through this, but am thankful you were there. I wish this would have had a better outcome for kitty and you.
