Okay, I thought I'd heard it all. The dumping excuses people come up with to ease their consciences. I was at Animal Control today for a training class and during the break I wandered through the cattery. There were the usual excuses...moving, baby, too many cats, etc., but today I read one I'd never heard of before. Bambi, from Palmer, dumped her 7 year old black tabby cat off at Animal Control...get this...because of hairballs. Yep, you read it correctly...hairballs. Something so easy and inexpensive to control. Something all cats go through. Hopefully Bambi doesn't dump her kid off at family services after he barfs up his macaroni and cheese.
