I am writing to say I believe in the "Rainbow Bridge". I would never put an animal in a shelter, to sit there for days months years. I believe in having them 'fixed' and letting them live out their life as an animal. If fortunate enough - a loving family. In a shelter they sit in the small cage and age, no longer a kitten - did not get to experience the touching grass for the first time, trees-yes they are fun to climb. I feel this is such a crime that the animal that did not commit a crime, like criminals that sit behind bars - who committed a crime. These "cats", which I am supporting or any other animal, do not need to be put behind bars just because some uneducated, no feelings toward animal kind, non passionate person who thought they wanted a pet and could not handle the responsibility and let them outside to make it on their own. I believe that anyone who wants a pet should have to undergo an intense training how to take care of the pet, pass a test, be monitored for 2 years. Seems like those who can barely afford to take care of themselves wants a pet. Then the pet is without water, food, hot in the summer, cold in the winter. No love or attention. The Rainbow Bridge is such a powerful place for animals - they have no pain, they become young again, no memory of the torture YOU gave them. They find peace and if you were a loving care taker, when you pass they will find you and you will unite once again as your love is strong.
