I think the issue is that you did state in your initial email that you don't want an indoor pet cat, so you keep Buddy in an outside cage. That makes it sound like you don't care. That might not be the case -- perhaps you do love him -- but I would rather my kitty be inside with me where he's safe from parasites.
I think it's unfair of you to say that the list members who may have been painfully blunt (or harsh) with you are jerks. We aren't jerks. We just love cats. Population control in the wild was handled by natural predators, which are becoming less and less. There is no balance anymore....wolf hunts, coyotes being killed, human beings encroaching more and more on wildlife habitat. It all matters. Things aren't the same now as they were 300 years ago. Veterinary care is easily available, so more animals survive now than then. All we are asking is that if you cannot keep the FeLV+ female, there are FeLV+ sanctuaries that will care for her if you don't want her in your house. I still think Buddy would be happier OUT of his outdoor cage and inside where he can be with you. He needs companionship too. =^..^= Terri, Guinevere, Travis, Dori, Kimiko and 8 furangels: Ruthie, Samantha, Arielle, Gareth, Alec, Salome, Sammi and Siggie the Tomato Vampire =^..^= ----- Original Message ----- From: Charles Adams<mailto:texasgoldbu...@yahoo.com> To: email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Tuesday, May 29, 2012 8:04 AM Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Charles Adams - Breeding cats Hello Lorrie, I appreciate your message. I have been taking very good care of this beautiful girl. I have a cage for her litter box and food but the door is left open and she comes and goes as she pleases. Now as for your comment about people viewing my message through colored glasses let me clarify that for you. They not looking through colored glasses they are viewing it with their heads up their asses. Bunch of jerks. My cats are treated better than lots of children and I love them and they are part of my family. I don't know who some of these jerks think they are. Last I recall I didn't get a message from God informing me he left anyone a God and ruler of the cat population on this planet.

It may be comforting to think it's all a joke, but this is exactly the way breeders are, so I think you're looking at this post thru rose colored glasses. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org<mailto:Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org> http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
