Okay so today I was on facebook and one of my local animals shelters just announced that after 10 years of being at the shelter, a 14 year old cat name flo was adopted. I was very happy. =D The cat has arthritis and is very ill. I probably wouldn't adopt a cat or dog or any senior animal of that matter anyway if I could.
Then when I told my mom this about Flo and her situation, she said some of the heartbreaking things to say about a cat that old. She's like, "Why can't they just leave it at the shelter? It's going to die soon?" Now I know I didn't want it to be said,but I was so frustrated at her. She asked me if I rather adopted a kitten or a senior cat. I said even though I really love kittens, I would probably go with a senior cat. Why would you say that about a poor animal, especially if that animal is sick? Just because it's old doesn't mean it won't be loved or anything. If you can't say nice about it then don't say it at all.. :(
