…inspired by the good folks at Farfel’s Farm and the fact that I have a home for the first time since I was a young punk and by the fact that I needed to start growing up and be able to maintain at least one steady relationship in my life and learn how to raise a sentient being without being an assh*le…
Why rescue, instead of breeder or pet shop? Because something like 80 million pets are killed each year in the USA alone—an annual animal holocaust. Now’s the time, with a worsening economy, to take the leap and grab a kitten, old cat, old dog or puppy etc. Why? Because many pets are deserted when owners can’t afford to feed ’em–and adoption rates decline severely in times of belt-tightening economic woe.
So, thinking about getting a cat for a year, I’m gonna take me a trip out to the Boulder Humane Society with my half-hound, all-love Redford, and see if he and I get on with any of the kitties there.
Not in Boulder? Petfinder is a comprehensive guide to homeless animals near you, wherever you be.
