cats for sale
there is a local pet shop in my town that occasionally sells kittens. domestic short hair kittens!they put them in a cage at the front of the store and impulse shoppers buy them. currently, there is one female kitten at the shop and she has been alone in a cage for several weeks. she is getting big. it makes me VERY sad. she should be at a shelter. the local shelter is non-kill. a cat can remain there for life if it's not adopted. i fear that the people who buy these kittens do not know what they are in for. background checks are not run!!! the kittens cost at least $350. i found out that they usually buy local litters. so, if my cat had babies i could go in and get $50 for each cat i give them. one of my friends bought a kitten from the pet shop and it is a real demon cat. yes, it still deserves love and a home, but some people would not have the patience to deal with such a cat. there's nothing i can do b/c it's legal. it's ridiculous. overpopulation is a huge issue and the people who are breeding their cats for dsh kittens are adding to the problem. they aren't TRYING to breed them, they just haven't spayed them. breeding cats is fine if you know what you are doing, but . has anyone else been to a pet store that sells cats?
