Animal Abusers!

Have you kissed your pet today? It’s disturbing how many dogs and cats don’t have a home, someone to love them, food and a simple drink of water.Whats even worse, is how many animals suffer abuse each and every day of their lives, it’s all they know, all that they think there is. Animals ask so little of us, and yet, they give so much, they remain loyal even when all they have been shown is hatred.

I have seen so many horrible things since working at a shelter, and though I have heard and seen the most evil things over and over again, it still to this day, turns my stomach each time. A tiny little beige kitten, only four weeks old was put into a small box, which was duct taped all around it, and thrown into a dumpster to die! His story had a happy ending, thankfully, he was found and brought in and has since been adopted. Far too many horrible stories though, don’t have a happy ending.

A beautiful brown and white Pit Bull had both the front and back legs tied tightly, duct tape all around his snout, he was closed into a garbage can in temps over a hundred degrees, after he’d been beaten severely, causing bleeding in the brain and suffering from broken ribs! Another Pit Bull, whose only crime was her unwillingness to fight, had severe burns covering her entire body, presumably from lighter fluid, also causing blindness in both of her eyes. Another black and brown Pit Bull, had his head smashed in with a brick, because he too, refused to fight.

A small black male cat, four months old, though you’d never know it by how emaciated he was, had been put into, and kept in a small box, not given food or water. By the time he was thrown out along the road, his legs had been permanently affected from being confined to such a small place for so long, causing him to be semi crippled for the rest of his life. A five month old white cat was dropped outside of a womans home, in bitter cold temps, closed in a carrier with no blanket, food or water. When she got home and found this poor skeletal cat, she rushed her to the vet, they gave her fluids and tried to force feed her, the vet had never seen a cat so starved, still breathing, her temp was too low to register a reading. She took the cat home, put her in bed next to her, on a heating pad and tried to rub her all night, to get her blood flowing, but the cat passed away in the morning hours. It had been too late, her organs had already started to shut down from no food or water for so very long!

A tiny two month old little Tabby male found his way to my door eleven years ago, he was starving and covered with, what appeared to be cigarette burns, needless to say, I saw to his burns and he is still with me today. A long haired black female was found, locked in an abandoned house along with her five little babies. By the time someone discovered them in the house, two of the babies had died and the others were in critical shape. The mothers organs were beginning to shut down from starvation and dehydration, her owners moved way and left her locked up in there, knowing that she was due to give birth!

What is wrong with people? Why is there so much animal abuse and neglect? These animals can’t pick up the phone and ask for help, they can’t fend for themselves or defend themselves against cruel people. I believe that whatever a person does to hurt an animal, any animal at all, the same should be done to them! These people are no better than poachers, some of the lowest life forms, and they need to be dealt with severely! If you don’t already have a pet, perhaps you should consider getting an animal from a shelter, the kill shelters are always over full and putting many to sleep!

Thank You To All Anti Reality Petitioners!

I want to say thank you, to all of you out there, who have started or signed a petition, especially if it pertained to television programming. There are far too few viewers who care enough to try and put a stop to some of the reality trash that’s now being aired on television. There was another reality show about a man and all of the women he’d had kids with, slated to air, until thankfully, a petition was circulated and signed by enough people to make the network pull the stupid show! I truly believe that there are many shows that need to be taken off the air, starting with the reality trash kings themselves, the Kardashians.

It infuriates me that a show will be called a “smash hit”, when they reach that conclusion simply from the Nielsen viewer households, which make up an entire 1% of all viewing households! It’s ludicrous when the rest of us viewers, pay for our cable services, only to be bombarded with reality garbage, or as I like to call it, dumpster fare. Get rid of the trash reality shows, that’s all, keep the ones that really are tolerable to watch, and get rid of the rest, or will it take umpteen more petitions, to see results?

Who on earth would want their children to watch crap like Honey Boo Boo? A family of overweight, self proclaimed Hillbillies with no manners, seemingly uneducated, bidding on food at discount prices? Or watch a family of nobodies, famous for being nobodies, which one made a sex tape to have her mommy dearest sell to the highest bidder, that was their big claim to fame! The list is endless of stupid reality shows, someone needs to make one big petition, and list the countless dumpster fare on it, all at once, to put a stop to it and take back our television fare.

There is nothing interesting or educational about most of the reality shows on, watching a posse of Jersey Shore wannabes, Iranians getting slop drunk and flaunting their wealth, or a housewife reject who cant sing, wearing her wigs to try and make sales, no thanks. Not only have we had these people taking up time on a reality show, but the next thing you know,they’re given a talk show to boot! Some of these networks are not only greedy, they’re moronic and need to stop the madness! We have enough trouble in this society with teenage pregnancy, drunkenness,you name it, but we don’t need it glamorized too!
