You see, I saw his email saying that too, about us "hoarders" going to shelters 
and taking all the cats and then selling them for profit and might I just ask 
"what effing planet are you from dude?"  I have been involved in rescue for 
over 17 years and every year, I have the receipts to prove that we have spent 
upwards of $5,000 to $10,000 on fosters and that doesn't even include the 
litter, food, paper towels, weeks that I got up every two hours to bottle feed 
a baby only to have her pass because she was just too far gone when I got her. 
THEN, I ask ONLY an $85 adoption fee so you want to tell me where all this 
money is I am making?  How much do you sell your cats for?  Thousands?   So, 
yea "SCR*W YOU!  YOU are the one breeding your cats for profit, while I am the 
one picking up their broken little bodies off the streets when people grow 
weary of having a pet and simply toss them aside.
Oh, and I don't HAVE to be nice to someone who immediately starts in with his 
"YOU PEOPLE" attitude when HE is the problem, not rescuers, we try to solve the 
problems HE creates.

Off my soapbox now ;)

Charles offered to take the cat. I have vet references, personal references, & 
shelter references. 
I currently have 4 Feline Leukemia positive cats. 2 are foster cats for the 
shelter I work with. The other 2 were found by friends of mine. 

Sorry you think I am a bone-head jerk, who goes to shelters, pulls animals, & 
resells them for a profit. Yeah, I wish...Most of the animals we pull from 
animal control end up costing us 3 or 4 times what we end up getting in 
adoption fees. We do it for the love of the animal. And many of these animals 
are purebreds.In fact some of the worst cases be have taken on have been 
purebred cats & retired breeding cats.
If you aren't making money on these cats, why are you doing it??? There are 
plenty of Bengals out there already looking for homes. A friend of mine just 
got one someone was looking to rehome.
I challenge you to work jut one day at a shelter & see what we go through for 
these abandoned animals. Animals who are only there because people were too 
bone-headed to spay & neuter.

Don't Litter, Fix Your Critter!

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

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.
