You have probably seen the ads and billboards I have that urge you to adopt a pet from a shelter rather than buying one from a breeder. I don’t care much for these ads.
|Well, okay, some of them are pretty hot.|
Parents, don’t name your kids “Booboo.” You’re just asking for trouble.
Or, as I like to call them, the “fur ball machines.”
|“It was totally worth it to pet them.”|
You may ask me how I found such amazing pets.
(Go on, ask me. I’ll wait.)
I got them from a breeder. That’s right, I decided that, instead of rescuing two cats from slaughter, I would buy two new ones.
|They still had that “new cat smell.”|
Packs of strays cause enormous damage to the environment and to endangered species. Adoption does cut down on their numbers a bit, but there just aren’t enough homes in the country to fit all of those animals in. However, even if everyone in the country adopted a cat, there’d still be a problem. So, what do we do?
My suggestion is we solve the problem the way we solved the problem with another animal that was once overpopulated and a serious danger.
Here’s a hint.
