Argos is keeping a good attitude, but I do think that he's getting tired of Romeo getting so much of the attention! We may need to take him to the dog park this weekend to make him feel special again.
|Did someone say "dog park?"|
I was flabbergasted when I first saw the footage of her dropping the cat into the trash bin. I was even more stunned when they finally interviewed her, and all she had to say for herself was that she thought it would be funny to drop a cat in the trash, and that it was "just a cat" and she couldn't figure out what everyone was so up in arms about.
To which I would have to say, if you are that callous towards a living creature, then I don't like you, and I never want to know you because you will be a complete waste of my time and energy. Just a cat. Just a cat indeed. Did you ever stop to think about the consequences to dropping a cat into a trash bin? That it was going to be a hot, sweltering day? That she might perish from heat exhaustion? Or was that part of the funny ha-ha joke? Did you even try to empathize with her, thinking about how terrified she must be, trapped inside of a hot, smelly garbage can, unable to get back to her family, not knowing when or if she was going to be found and rescued? Did you ever stop to try to empathize with her family, who cared for her and was worried sick? That she was a rescue who already had trust issues with humans? (Gee, I wonder why animals would have ANY trust issues, with people like YOU running around.)
No, I 'm thinking that you did none of these things because you strike me as the type of person who is incapable of that level of self-reflection or empathy for others.
I am not condoning violence against this woman in any way. But I do heartily applaud the fact that this story, and her name, was so widely publicized. She NEEDS to be shamed, to be villified, because you know what? At least on that day, when she dropped a cat named Lola into the trash, she WAS a villain.
And maybe this public shaming will show other villains that it's harder to get away with wanton cruelty in this day and age.
I could probably rant on for hours and hours, but I will spare everyone that. Stories like this just make me so angry that I could just spit. So anyway, rant off.
