bob barker said so

Three orphaned kittens I have now, soon to be two, because one of them is fading quickly. It used to be four, but a little black one already died--maybe from the cow's milk? The two we have named Groceries and Rex look like they have a pretty good shot, if we can just get keep them alive until the animal shelter opens this afternoon.

And now for the story of Rex. Yesterday morning we heard mewling and found these orphaned kittens, along with another litter that had been abandoned by their crack whore mother and starved to death. Three of the first litter were looking fairly lively, and the fourth, a brown tabby, was stiff and coldish, and was barely moving his mouth. We tried to feed him, but he wouldn't respond, so we threw him away with the other dead kittens. We fed the three survivors and went to church.

When we got home I could hear a baby kitten meowing outside and could not figure out where it was coming from. I looked all over the patio and garage, and finally realized that the meowing was coming from inside the garbage can. I opened the lid, and there was the little brown tabby climbing around on the garbage sack, right as rain. We have named him Rex, short for Resurrects. If he ends up being short-haired we're keeping him because I've always wanted a brown tabby, and who wouldn't want The Cat Who Lived?

I would like to take this time to remind you all to SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS, DANGIT.

And if you still don't spay or neuter your pets, Do Not Drop Their Offspring Off Out in the Country, Loser! (Sorry, people drive me crazy with that.)

I can't believe you threw away a live cat. You're horrible. You should've put it in the oven like James Herriot or am I thinking of 101 Dalmations. I can't remember

Finally!....a post that I can actually link to it's title! lol

I think I will have nightmares about throwing kittens away. Although... I have come close to flushing my live fish down the toilet. That thing will NOT die!

Let me know if you have a new family pet.:-)
