Are They Bad? Pt. 3

Oh mommy weez sure awe havin’ sum bad stowms. Me dusn’t fink it’s ever gunna stop rainin’. It makes me feel so sad fur all those feral kitties we talked ‘bout. Cuz most of them never end up in da shelter or a furever home. At least those kitties in da shelter don’t have to be outside when da wedder be so bad.


No Dezi the shelter kitties don’t have to be out in the bad weather. But they’re just as sad.

Why mommy? What zactly is a shelter cat? Me knows it’s Adopt a Shelter Cat mumff, but me dusn’t know why.

Well sweety every year at this time shelters get over crowded because kitties are having babies, and a lot of them. A lot of those kitties are strays that haven’t been outside long enough to become feral yet, and some are brought in because their people don’t want them anymore.

Why would their people not want them anymore mommy? Are they bad kitties?

Oh honey no, they’re not bad kitties at all. Sometimes their people just get bored with them, or kitty gets sick and they can’t afford or don’t want to spend the money to help them. And sometimes a kitty will develop a bad habit like going potty outside the box. There are all kinds of reasons kitties end up in the shelter baby, but none of them are good reasons or the the kitties fault really. A kitty that’s sick or has behavior problems doesn’t have a very good chance of being adopted.

OMC Mommy do you mean me kuld have been a shelter kitty when me waz peein’ on da floor stead of da box?

No baby you were never at risk of bein’ a shelter kitty. I knew there was a reason you were doing that and I am/was willing to do whatever it takes/took to fix that. You’re my baby girl and there’s no way you will ever be a shelter kitty, so don’t worry your pretty little head about that.


Fank you mommy. But ifin a kitty goes to da shelter cuz they be havin’ purrawllems how awe they ever gunna get a furever home?

Well baby, sometimes there are wonderful rescue groups that will take a chance on kitties that are scared and have problems and they take them home to live with foster parents where the kitties can get help and hopefully find forever homes.

Like me and sissy wight mommy?

Well sort of honey. You and your sister were rescued before you ever went to a shelter. But yes, if those rescue groups hadn’t been there y’all would have gone to shelters.

What happens to da kitties dat don’t get lucky enuff to get a foster home mommy?

Sometimes they do okay in the cages until someone comes along and adopts them. And some shelters are doing wonderful things and making cat rooms so the kitties don’t have to be in a cage all the time. They’re realizing that kitties don’t do well in cages.

But what about those kitties dat not do well in a cage and isn’t in one of those pawsum shelters?

Oh Dezi, (hugs Dezi and holds her close) sometimes those kitties are euthanized. And sometimes they do get lucky and somebody does take a chance on them. Your friend Ms. Layla just brought home such a kitty.

Dat’s Radish, isn’t it mommy? (wipes tears from mommys eyes with paw)

Yes it is. Radish is a prime example of a wonderful kitty that didn’t do well in a cage. He was older, scared and struck out and would bite people. And he was sick too, so he didn’t ever stand a chance. But with social media today a lot more kitties get a chance than ever before. That’s why it’s so important for us to share those kitties and posts.

Well we can volunteer, donate money and supplies, and share, share, share. Shelters are always in need of supplies and funds. There’s always something you can do to help. Spay and neuter your own pets and commit to them for their entire life, and not just when they’re cute little kitties or puppies, but also when they’re older and can’t get around as well. As a society we tend to want to adopt the younger kitties, puppies, even babies. But older pets are just as wonderful.

Like sissy wight? She’s da bestest.

Sis Lexi today at 16 years old. She's still got it.

Yes baby she is the bestest. Remember to adopt and not shop. And next time, take a look at the older kitties available before you make your decision. And get involved in some way. You can check this website to Find a shelter in your area.

Fank you fur tellin’ me ‘bout da shelter kitties mommy. Me sure hopes and purrays lots of kitties get adopted by luvvin’ mommys and daddys not only this mumff but every mumff.
