SFACC and SFSPCA swamped with cats and kittens! »
If you’ve been contemplating a kitty companion, now is the time! Head to SFACC or SFSPCA (or both! They’re right next to each other!) and get your new feline best friend! The shelters are over flowing with cuddly cuteness because of the down economy. Stupid people. Stupid economy. Depression 2.0, it just got personal. Actually, it was personal about a year and a half ago, but you’ve just renewed my disgust.
If you’re not super-keen on adopting but want to help out, I bet you could foster through Give Me Shelter cat rescue. Be persistent if a rescue person doesn’t get back to you! Keep calling! They’re often overwhelmed trying to keep everything in order while receiving no pay and working other full time jobs so don’t be bummed/miffed [Ed.: heh] if they don’t get back to you right away. Just keep trying! It’ll happen! And you’ll save some lives in the process and that makes you a real life Super(Wo)Man. Awww…
Just got a reminder from Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue that it’s kitten season. Whee! What does this mean? I mean, besides the fact that humans are too dumb and lazy to properly care for their pets? Oh, just that adult cats are not being adopted and instead, killed. Hey kittens! Stop being so fucking adorable, you’re ruining it for everyone! I’m totally a dog person but I’d push a puppy into traffic to get to a kitten HOW DO THEY LOOK SO CUTE? It’s just wrong. I can’t help it, I want to cover my body in live kittens and take to the runway. Who’s the baddest bitch now, Wintour!?!?!
Anyway, if you can find it in your hearts to say NO to kittens and instead, embrace the awesomeness of an already-litter-box-trained adult cat, now is the time. Adult cats are less messy, less destructive, and it’s easy to know their temperaments, unlike with kittens who could be total psychos when they grow up but you’re too blinded by the KITTEN OMG I LOVE to give a shit.
If you want copies of this flyer (in color or b&w!) to post to your blog or distribute on a street corner or paste all over your body or whatever, holler at your dino!
