Hi, i'm writing to vent some of the frustration I feel about the cat situation in my country . Generally the central american countries are more dog countries, but in my country the situation is ridiculous. Cats here are incredibly mistreated, in the cities nobody likes them in their houses, they throw hot water at them because most people think of them as pests, and it has even gotten to the point where some chinese restaurants have been known to put them on the menu (illegally of course). It just makes me so sad to see and hear these things as a cat lover, and the worst part is not being able to form a front against these because there is not enough people interested in the issue . I really love cats and it really frustrates me that I can't even find a scratching post for my kitty . I would really hope the animal protection associations would take an interest in these situation, but in the meantime we will do what we can . Thanks for reading me out, and sorry about the length . Hope someday this will get straightened out, and kitties will live in a world where they can be respected and loved by everyone .
