Okay, so we all love animals, we have read many stories about them, we have done things to our pets that we are sorry for or feel guilty for. ( And no I’m not talking about harming them, if you purposely abuse your pet, I shun you! I berate you! I can’t even go there right now) I don’t want to write about those horrors in this blog although they do exist and need addressing for sure.
Today, I am talking about the things we do that embarrass the animal… dress them up in doll clothes, make them dance with tutus on, walk in a circle with a hotdog on their nose… You know they know it’s embarrassing.
My poor little boom had weak back legs, so I got her a wheel cart. And even though it was for her own good, (and she ended up loving it because she could go for longer walks), she still was extremely ashamed whenever she had to use it. In fact when she passed on, and my other guy, Bing, got so old, I tried to get him to use it and I never saw a dog look like he wanted to scream “Are you f@#$ing kidding me? Get me out of this. I am so mortified!”
Believe me if they could only talk! They try, they give us the look. You know the one….They speak volumes and I don’t care what anyone says, they have an innate sense of what is going on at all times.
You’ve seen these people that carry their dogs around in a bag, or push them in a baby stroller, Really?? Sorry, to me they are not just pets, they are like people, and who wants to be carried in a bag if they have the strength to run and jump and want to be free and playing and doing? (I know there are times when a puppy is too young to be on the ground in a public place, or a dog is injured) but I’m talking about a healthy happy, let me jump and run animal. Anyway, that is off point.
I’m just bringing it all up because I found the ultimate insult to injury of using an animal when they have no say so in it at all. I found this article and it came with pictures I gotta tell ya, it made me so mad, but when I realized the cat would be fine, it did make me laugh at the absurdity of it, the audacity of the person who did it, and that fact that the cat could not tell anyone, who did it, where they did it or why or for whom they did it. Please Read below before I continue…
(detained? Ouch, ease up Mr. Guard!!) Prison guards were surprised when they saw a white cat crossing the main gate of the prison, its body wrapped with tape. A closer look showed the feline also carried drills, an earphone, a memory card, batteries and a phone charger.
All 263 detainees in the prison of Arapiraca, a city of 215,000 people in the state of Alagoas, are considered suspect in the plot, which is being investigated by local police.
“It’s tough to find out who’s responsible for the action as the cat doesn’t speak,” a prison spokesperson told local paper Estado de S.Paulo.
The cat was taken to an animal disease center to receive medical care.
The incident took place on New Year’s day Jan 1, 2013 but was first reported by national media on Saturday.
The cat doesn’t speak? Really? Cause I’m sure if he did he would have made an appointment for his visitation rights. I mean everyone has a right to see their loved ones in prison.
Of course if he did speak, he would never have given up his partner in crime, I’m sure. Loved ones don’t rat….rat? did I see a rat? I can’t believe he was still on his way in and never veered from his goal!
I think he had Stockholm syndrome. So you can’t blame the cat, someone fed him, and fed him a line of bull…”Really, Bob needs these, he’s innocent, we have to help him, no one will get hurt, just purr and keep on walking, you can do it!”
And if he did speak, and how funny is it that they had to write…” the cat doesn’t speak” Do most cats speak? Did they think he was just faking it to cover up the crime? If he could speak, don’t ya think he might have said, “Get this crap off me! It’s heavy, it’s digging into me, and it is humiliating!”
And detained? Detained for questioning? Really? What did he have to say? Did he mime what was going on? And really, you only have 215,000 suspects? You better call CSI immediately!
So bottom line, don’t involve your pets or people in your prison escape. CRIME DOESN’T PAY! And your pets deserve better! At least give them a mask so no one sees their faces! Yikes, how embarrassing! LOL… Go kiss your pets right now.
