I'm a little upset over a rumor I heard today about Amish running puppy and kitty mills. I heard the mills are dirty and poorly ran, and they are sending these animals all over the country in horrible conditions to pet stores, ect, and alot of them die while traveling. The rumor also states that there has been articles in Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy. I've been taking Cat Fancy for longer than 10 years and I've never read anything like that before. I live 5 miles for an Amish community and know some of them very well. They are very hard workers, respectable, and are very nice people. The families I know take very good care of all their animals, and would never do such a thing. I just feel sorry for the bad rap these people are getting! The rumor also states the the Amish in the mid-west are Known for doing this....This is the first I've ever heard of this, and I've lived 5 miles from them ,here in NE Iowa all my life!
