I would like to share my story with you all.
I used to have four cats.
Last summer my sister moved in with us, we already had a full house with our own pets, and my ex boyfriends large Great Dane Newfie. My sister brought her pets, three cats and two dogs. It was difficult, as I also had a border with her cat as well. We had alot of animals at the time. It was hectic trying to find a home for my sister and her pets, but we made due. Unfortunately while I was at school there was a trragic accident, a kitten that we were looking for a home for, fell into our fishtank, my sister hadn't realized, as she had a two year old and the kitten drown. To top it all off, someone who was trying to get my sisters child taken away had called childrens aid (all disregarded, we are not neglectful people, children or pets) but when the childrens aid people got here they found the kitten. I was called home from school to find the SPCA raiding my house, they allowed us to keep five dogs, but were going to take all the cats. I knew the woman who came from the SPCA she searched for loopholes so she wouldn't have to take any of the animals, as they were all very very healthy. She couldn't find a loophole, but managed to allow us a hour and a half to relocate as many of our pets as we could. We only had five dogs re homed (very happily) through the SPCA, I saved my special cat, which I recieved when I was hospitalized. And my best friends cat, the both went to his parents house. I also saved my ex's Great Dane newfie, along with three other of the dogs. Like I said alot of pets, we breed small breed dogs, (NON PUPPY MILL) all healthy. I got to keep my seventeen year old Huskie/Sheltie cross, she lies comfortable on my floor as I type right now. However another tragedy struck, my best friends parents don't like me, and allowed my baby Terror, a tabby and white cat, to escape to the great outdoors, where she had never been, she is lost to me now, which is why I didn't want to get a new cat, but without them the rodent population increased, and mice give me the heebie jeebies, so I got Kitten.
I wanted to share this story because I hope it will help me overcome my sadness for Terror. I still look at the animal shelter for her regularly. I just hope that she was discovered and given a good home.
I also wanted people to know that not all animal seizures are because of abusive homes, sometimes it is just a matter of having a permit.
Please don't judge me, had i been home that day, that kitten would have been playing with me, or on its way to a new home. I was devistated, it took a great deal of councelling in order for me to get over it.
There is no need to respond, but if you have questions about animal seizures and what the SPCA is and is not allowed to do, I have alot of answers.
If you feel like bashing me, don't I do it regularly.
