Another one here who's wondering why you'd bother posting in WWYD when you already have made up your mind?  

Personally, I've rescued an old cat, and cared for her until she passed away, and now have an AWL kitty.  I'd be keeping it.  But that's just me.

Your heartlessness is only topped by the girl that threw those puppies in the river. Are you sure you aren't that poster some time back who had no problems turning a hose on the kitten that obviously needed help ?

Oh and in case I came across as a gem of a human, it's kitten season, around the corner from our house 17 unfixed cats were caught a few months back, the cat rescue people are not taking cats (or at least they weren't last time I tried them) and I am pretty desperate to control my indoor/enclosure cat's spraying.

All of mine are strays who I found.  I want to keep every single one that I catch but can't. sad.gif

Don't worry sarita your compassion is clear. I'd be overrun with cats if I could care for them all.

This thread has to be a wind up, the OP has been around for long enough to know what kind of reaction this would provoke.

I don't feel guilty about this cat being PTS. I don't feel sorry for it. In fact I feel zero sentiment toward its plight. We're seriously being overrun by cats at night here.

I'm considering leaving it to fend for itself as it made itself way too comfortable about coming in when I left the door open. It's the way of the animal world.

Well, isn't that just lovely. Fantastic example of kindness you're setting for your children, there. It takes little trouble to give some food, shelter and take it to the vet rather than the pound. Jesus. Poor little thing.

huh.gif  blink.gif  wacko.gif In the time it would have taken to log onto the net, type out this topic, reply to a post...you could have had the kitten in, warmed up and fed by now sad.gif...just for the night and as pp have mentioned off to the RSPCA in the morning...or the next best place depending on your area...it's a no brainer.
I too hope this is a wind up

How bloody hard would it be to make sure the kitten is fed and warm for one night and then take it to the vet or RSPCA???

I agree with PP's, there was no reason to post this if that was your opinion to start with, it seems you just want the eruption that is bound to happen with that sort of post.

I've just been at a meeting and it somehow tracked me down. My post was more a question of whether this cat had decided I was it's new owner IYKWIM. I think it's attrocious that people are clearly dumping domestic cats. It's far from feral and very assertive with its friendliness. We're a bit more laid back around here.

It was fed and watered before I posted but I thought I made it clear that I was trapping and passing them onto the pound. Sorry for the upset, but I was just wondering at how such a cute kitten had such a minor affect on me.

I'm a cat lover but these strays have certainly hardened me up.

Look, I simply refuse to believe there is a kitten crying outside your door and you're ignoring it.

I think you're looking for a rise in light of the recent animal threads.

OK I've just seen your previous post. I mean maybe it's picked you? Maybe not. Either way at least try the RSPCA, kittens are easy to re - home.

Your not a cat lover.

What a ridiculous statement considering your second post.

There are people working in shelters that shed a tear for nearly every animal they need to PTS due to people not giving a feck.

True animal lovers never 'harden up' they just get angrier.

I am a lover of all animals, but do admit to having a low tolerance to cats. However, I would never ignore any animal, cat or otherwise, that needed to be fed, to be kept warm and safe until the morning, where I could then place it at a shelter.

Even if you do not like animals of any kind, or even a particular kind, human instinct would surely kick in to help a distressed and hungry animal? I could never go to bed knowing there was a hungry and frightened animal at my doorstep.

I don't think I could shut the door on anything that is so young and so frightened. Have a heart man.
