So cruel...

post #1 of 15

I was just cruising thru Petfinder....and ran upon this little girl.How I wish I had the ways and means to provide her with the love she needs!! How could anyone want to do this? Why even get a Siamese if you don't want to hear them?

Some people just done deserve pets. I sometimes wish certain people weren't allowed to have pets, but it's a shame we can't do much from stopping them in doing so.

If you want a "Silent" pet then get a fish or a hermit crab!!!!!!

As someone who adores the sound of a fiesty Siamese, this just hurts my heart. Poor little lamb.

I know one thing...if I ever play the lottery and hit it big....look out. I'll buy a giant farm and will have the biggest "cathouse" around! Then,every time I run across a special needs baby,they will have a loving home. I have got to stop cruising these petfinder sites.....it's so depressing!!!

I agree. When I was looking for a companion for Seb, I checked petfinder, the OHS and craigslist almost daily. It was a depressing search. Now that we have Daph, no more looking. It just breaks my heart every time.

I don't have a clue! Maybe a health related procedure,but I'd say more likely because the owner requested it! Especially with Siamese being such vocal creatures....I honestly doubt that she had health issues!

I've heard of some [unscrupulous] vets cutting dogs' vocal cords so they can't barks, so I assume it's something like that. at any rate, it's barbaric, and both the owner and the vet who did it should be taken out back and shot.

They should be taken in and "de-voiced" themselves! Poor sweet girl

De-meowed?? I've heard of debarking, but de-meowing? I own a Siamese myself and even thought she has quite a yowl, I would never think of de-meowing! If you want a cat that doesn't meow, don't get a Siamese. Sheesh.

And, if you would do this, don't have any animals - ya don't deserve them

Sadly, this procedure is still done to dogs today, along with those collars that prevent dogs from being able to bark. If you cant handle the dog barking you shouldnt own one.

Dogs can be taught by training, but a cat really cant learn to "be quiet" on command, people should realize this and just accept the cat is going to meow or not own one.

like my Java - quietest cat i've ever owned. would've never expected it by looking at her, tho - she's not only a calico, but very oriental in appearance [long body, long face].

I have to limit my Petfinder time. It would be so easy to take in too many and become overwhelmed. (time and money and emotional energy) It's true, there are always abused kids and animals out there.
