Well I just added another horror thread there
Renea, I hope you don't mind me hijacking this thread, but if I don't vent I won't be able to go back to bed.
It's 4 AM here now. Dan couldn't sleep (he was colicky) and I didn't want him to wake up Ron, so I put him in the baby sling and came over to the computer. I figured I might as well go over my emails.
One of the emails was from the Cat Welfare Society of Israel. It was a link to the video documenting the poisoning of a cat in the town of Givat-Ada (which happens to be very close to where I live). It's a horrible video - very painful to watch. It only lasts 2 minutes - but what long 2 minutes. Mind you, the video lasts two minutes as it's edited. For the cat it was much much longer....
Why are people so cruel? There are people in the video walking around the poor thing, talking and laughing as it dies in agony. I just can't get it - I am so ashamed of my country right now!
I hope I'm not distressing anyone by posting this here. I would have avoided it - but it's there for a reason. It's there to drive us all into doing something. Sign the petition, email people, do something! Tell your friends to do so as well. I know that stray animals are being put down everywhere, but my God not in such a heartless way! No creature should suffer like this before its death!
Please hug your cats for me tonight. I know I'm going to hug mine now. Others just like them are being tortured and killed on our streets everyday in the cruelst of ways...
