I’m A Pet Adoption Wimp

Today on a hot California Saturday there was a “Mega Adoption Event” in Yucaipa.  It’s a wonderful event sponsored by local adoption, rescue and shelter agencies to try to adopt the numerous rescue animals, plus offering low cost microchips and vaccines for your pets. Having a free day I decided to go ahead and go.

My hubby is always a little nervous when I go to these things because I might cave and bring home a new member of the family. He is afraid to upset the balance we have with our sweet Russian Blue who is now the queen of the household since her “sister” cat passed away 2 years ago.

And I have to admit, as much as I love to see the kitties, it also tears at my heartstrings. I want to take them all home!  Even when we go buy supplies at Pet Smart I can only look at the cats for adoptions for a short time as I get very depressed. What a wimp!

At this event the dogs out-numbered the cats about 4 to 1.  I have to admit some were certainly adorable! Of all the animals there, I think it would be very hard to pick just one.  You would have to find the one that looked you in the eye and made you fall in love!

I adore cats and support TNR, but being so wimpy, I have to help the cat community in other ways, such as donations or spreading information on social media. Plus I have a website that offers gifts and décor for cat lovers.  Are there others out there that feel like I do?  I’m here to testify! Will you join me?

    I feel the same way. I did volunteer work for a non profit group in San Antonio. I feel very sad for these animals that are either neglected or just tossed away . Like you, I wanted to take them all home. I had to quit the volunteer job but sometimes I take bags of food to different shelters or make monetary donations. If you can’t foster or adopt there are so many other ways to help our furry friends.
