I got accused of being a bad pet owner!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Today I was in the grocery store picking up some snacks for a girls night (ANTM!) when one of the girls called me while I was in line. She knows Cello my siamese quite well and i told her that "cello might be impossibly annoying tonight, I haven't taken him out for a walk in almost a week because I've been away and it's been raining since I got home" to which the lady in line behind me interjected and said "excuse me, but if you have a pet it is your responsibility to make sure it gets outside! even in the rain" to which I said "cello is my siamese cat....... he would be the first to tell you siamese melt in the rain"

I went back to my conversation and before I checked out she said......

"you walk your cat?"

All in all it was pretty funny, and quite honestly I might have done the same thing if I thought someone wasn't walking their dog!

In her defense, at least the lady spoke up with a decent opinion (assuming you had been talking about a dog. )

I was thinking that the lady in line with you might as well have been another member! Good on her for speaking up though.

That's a great story!

Try living here, I've had people threaten to report me to the RSPCA and the police for keeping my cats indoor only Not that they would be interested, but I am now fairly used to being told I am cruel and not based on a misunderstood conversation (other peoples' lack of understanding doesn't hurt any less as time goes on though).

That's funny, and I applaud that lady for standing up for animals, even if she didn't quite know what she thought she knew!

I love it!

We took Nero to the vet with him on his harness & leash last Sunday, and the reactions were pretty funny ... "a cat on a leash!??!"
