Good day to all. Today I went to the Human Society, and cleaned up the dog shit. I guess that's what were you start out, the bottom of the food chain. Me! Cleaning up dog shit. I get to feed the dogs too, and pet them. I clean out Litter boxes, and put new litter in them. I'm not really a cat person, but there is this one cat there, and he is like 16lbs. My dog Eleanor is 4lbs, so to me this cat is huge. He only has one eye, and was taken away from its owner because their son was torturing the cat. Serial Killer in the making. The neighbors called the police when they seen the kid tie the cat up by the tail and hang him from a tree. That kid really needs some hardcore therapy, or he needs to be put down. The kid was 14 years old. I understand that teenage boys have Testosterone running thru their veins and it makes them crazy little fuckers. Still to inflict pain on another living animal is just not right. Their is something going on in that family that needs to be looked at. Torturing animals is not normal. Jeffery Dhamar used to kill cats, and open them up, and feel the cats rib cage with his tongue, and noticed that it felt alot like the roof of his mouth. We all know what happen to Jeffrey.
One would think this cat would be meaner than hell, but nope he's just sweet as can be. He wants affection so badly, its sad. I just wanted to take him home and show him that there is love to be given. That I can love him. I can cuddle him, and protect him, and feed him. Then I was talking to another girl who volunteers, her name is Jenny she is 21. She told me that fat cat, (the name of the fat one eyed cat) is like the mascot for that particular Human Society. He gets free roam of the office during operating hours, and he gets a bigger cage than the rest of the cats because he is so fat. The cat room is huge at the Leeward Human Society. The cats have all these carpeted play houses, that are 4 and 5 levels high, and they have these shelves along the walls, where the cats can walk along. The cats are not in the cages most of the day. Unlike the dogs.
I offered to walk the dogs as much as possible, but they have set limits. I can only take a dog out for a half hour. It breaks my heart. I want to take all of them home with me. Right now there is 80 dogs there, and it just breaks me down. Today was my first time actually volunteering, so I don't know how often they get adopted. I didn't ask how long they have before they are "put down", because I couldn't take it.
So everyone who loves animals should donate any extra money they might have to the ASPCA. I make my parents donate 25 a month, and when I had a job I used to donate 5 dollars a month. When and if I get my welfare back, I plan on donating 50 bucks a month. Next Sunday I go back and clean up dog and cat poop. I can't wait. I feel like I did something good for once.
