some people are so ignorant! one of our little pre-k students brought a kitten to school today as a gift for her teacher. sentiments were excellent - action was otherwise! this kitten was only about 4 weeks old, nevermind the fact that you should never give an animal as a gift! the teacher brought her to me to hold until the little girl was picked up, then she sent the kitten back home. beautiful little dilute calico semi-long hair! slightly flattened face - looked like maybe some persian type distant ancestor.

Oh my goodness! What if:
a)The teacher was allergic to cats
b)The kitten was sick
c)The teacher couldn't afford the upkeep of a kitten (a 4 week-old still needs a lot of immunizations, not to mention a spay)
d)The teacher (God forbid) dislikes cats....
The list goes on and on. Nice sentiment, but I suspect it was the idea of a parent who wasn't responsible enough to get their cat spayed and wound up with a litter of kittens they wanted to unload on people... Sorry, this kind of thing really burns me up!

GRRRRR GRRRRRR

The child apparently comes from a home where the parent [or parents] are STOOPID. Careless, irresponsible, ugh. Let me at them!

That poor kitten. What's going to happen to her?

Reminds me of my Zorro story. Zorro was only 5 weeks old when he was given away to a friend of mine. The dude who was giving away the litter of black-n-white kittens said (as he sat in his chair, stoned out of his mind), "dude man we just can't afford to spay the girl and the boy won't stay off of her cuz he's like not fixed".

(they had a big gray male & a lil black & white female living in their apt & just couldn't understand about SPAYING AND NEUTERING)


(but at least I have my hunny Zorro now)

Exactly. What kind of parent would let their daughter bring a 4 week old kitten to school, (which we all know is entirely too young to be taken from it's mother in the best of circumstances!)

i tried to explain to the little girl that the kitten needed to be at least 8 weeks old before leaving its mommy, & that 12 weeks would be even better. i don't know if she understood, but the teacher did & said she would tell the parents that when they picked up the child.

that's rediculous! you take apples to your teacher not pets! however the stupidity doesn't at all surprise me! my oldest is in 3rd grade and some of the parents...well lets just say i'm amazed they were even smart enough to figure out how to procreate!

Unfortunately, even the dumbest animals on earth have a strong need to mate. Sometimes, that includes humans.

Funny thing: You need a license to drive a car, own a gun, pilot an aircraft, or even catch a fish. Have to take tests & show you have *some* knowledge of what you're doing. But with making babies? Nah, just roll in the hay & have as many as ya want! No proof of responsibility, intelligence or actual care in what you're doing at all.

Sorry, I get riled when I hear stories like this.

That is just sad all the way around. For the tiny kitten, who so needs its Momma. And I hope those doofy parents are smarter than that about raising children, for the little girl's sake!

what if the child just took it from the litter with out telling the parents??
you kind of get that with little kids... i used to annoy my mommy cats by putting the babies in a dolly crib and walk it aroudn the house.. of course though i was only 7 or 8

But the kid was a pre-schooler wasnt she? her parents or someone must have walked or driven her there and *seen* the kitten she was taking...

Either way, her parents need a good kick. There should be mandatory *moron* tests before you can legally own pets!!

hmm, in germany many 5, 6 ,7 year olds walk to school with out parental supervision

I walked to school when I was 7. But this thread is about a significantly younger child - 3-4, I believe. A child that young shouldnt have unsupervised access to the kittens, let alone be able to snag one and wander off down the street with it.

How did the child get to school? It could have been possible the child found it.

1st thing - kid is either 3 or 4 - i think 4.
2nd thing - not sure how she got here, but she was picked up by parents or reasonable facsimile. probably dropped off, too, because she had no carrier, & bus driver probably wouldn't have let her have a loose animal on the bus. so some adult knew she brought it to school.
3rd thing - haven't heard anything since kitty was sent home w/kid. hopefully, teacher told them about keeping her another month before trying to find her a home. i'll ask later & let you guys know.
