I just got back from a shelter in Dallas, TX who told me some alarming news!! I was looking at a litter of lilac siamese kittens who were about 4 weeks old (the mother was onsite) I was interested in adopting one UNTIL the lady told me that I would adopt the kitten today (paperwork and such) - he would be fixed sometime next week and THEN i could take him home!!!! I looked at her like she was crazy and said "At 5 weeks??? Are you JOKING ME???" :roll: The lady told me that I couldn't have the kitten until he was fixed...and that they are starting to fix the kittens before anybody can take them home. How nuts is this???!!!
