We have a little kerfuffle here in the neighborhood. A lady who rescues feral cats and finds homes for them was arrested for Dumpster Diving. She was looking for food for feral cats she rescues.
Here is the article that appeared in the Cape Gazette today:
I wish Bill didn't hate cats. I would definitely take those two orange kittens.
It just breaks my heart to hear and read about feral cats and kittens having to fend for themselves in this harsh world.
I'm not a religious person but I do feel that there should be a special place in Heaven for people like this lady and all those who help our critter friends who all they want to do is survive in this world.
A blogger friend of mine recently wrote a blog about how he is overwhelmed with taking care of about a dozen feral cats that his former neighbor used to take care of now they look to him for survival.
Survival is on my mind recently because I am now reading a book about the Bataan Death March and prisoners of war of the Japanese. I read of the horrific conditions that these prisoners had to endure just to survive. I recently finished a book about a Jewish woman who was a slave laborer for the Nazis in Poland during World War II. Same story of survival that just broke my heart.
Most of us have an easy life and don't have to do much to survive a good, comfortable long life. The least we can do is to help those who are less fortunate than we are, especially animals like feral cats.
Sometimes I get depressed about the selfishness of human nature. I think a lot of this has to do with Mitt Romeny (The Liar) who is running for president. Such a selfish man and so many like him (the Tea Baggers in this Republican Party which isn't your father's Republican party).
I try so hard to not get depressed when constantly barraged with the evilness that "businessman" like Romney do to get their millions while the hell with everyone else. And they still don't have enough,they want more. And this is the man who put his dog on the roof of his car for a 12 hour vacation trip.
I know, I know. I'm all over the place here but I think the readers of this blog who are more serious about life will understand what I'm trying to convey. Reading this news about this woman is the perfect antidote for all the bad news today. Isn't it ironic that even though she is doing the right and good thing, she's in trouble? That's the problem with this world today. Do the right thing and someone will try and take you down.
