Re: “No-kill shelters defend practices

I was referred to search for a no kill shelter for a beautiful black kitten with green eyes, which some horrible person decided to dispose of in the business complex I work at. But after reading this story, oh my goodness, that will not be the kitten's fate. Devastated I am because I am barely making ends meet, but I cannot bare the thought of a living creature starving to death or as stated earlier being hit by a car, mauled by another animal, or simply dying from loneliness or an ice cold night. I fed the kitten, she came back, I fed her again, she came back, I let her into the office so she could sleep without fear during the day, but letting her out at night. I am allergic but I pet her and give her love. I need to find her a home but no one will say yes. What to do? The humane society will only take curable and adoptable cats. The county animal shelter will only keep them so long and if the humane society does not select the kitten she will be put to death. How can I abandon her? The only hope I had has now been lost. No, after reading this article she will not go there. She follows me everywhere, tells me when she's hungry, tells me when she wants to play, purrs when I cuddle her; with no idea that after I touch I run to wash my hands, because I am allergic to her. Finally she let me lock her in the office for two nights as I think she sensed the weather was turning bad and so now I can sleep at night knowing she is safe; she had no idea how much I suffered at night not knowing if she was ok or not. Tomorrow I have to run to the office so the landlord does not find her and let her out, oh I hope the weather lets up so I won't worry that I have to send her out in the cold and rain for a few hours. I had to give up my home so I can only imagine her desperation when those/that terrible person set her out on the street. Desperate I was, but today I should sleep better, as my sister will let me bring her to her home in NY. Despite that she struggles to feed her own doggie and a cat that she took when a friend died, she said I could. I will be able to give her a home but how will she feel when I abandon her only to see her here and there. I guess it will be better than wondering if she is sleeping in her own feces, being loved or mauled to death in the bushes she nestled to sleep. I have fallen in love with a kitten that for many reasons I cannot realistically keep. But I will keep skipping a meal each day to be able to fill her tummy and hide her in the office so she will be safe at night until I have no choice but take her to someone else she does not know, but who she will come to love. I will be taking her to a vet to get her fixed, vaccinated, and treated for whatever she has. I am asking my friends to donate to my kitty cause, because I will not abandon her. I hope the terrible person who abandoned her is plagued by kitty nightmares each night of the week. I wish their children will one day abandon them to a nursing home where no one will care except for the check that will keep the place open. I further hope the children never visit again so reflection will instill the feeling the kitten felt the day she was abandoned by someone she thought loved her and no doubt who she trusted when placed in the car only to be discarded and left in an abyss of fear. Thank goodness the dear lord guided her to me that dark lonely night.
