Hello all:)

I have been worrying a lot (like my whole life) about animal welfare. I worry about the dogs and kitties who are homeless in shelters or are strays. I've also recently become a vegetarian (except for turkey) because of the factory farm conditions. I always try to buy eggs and milk where the animals are allowed to roam free in their natural environment.

Does it keep anyone else up at night that so many cats do not have homes and will be put to sleep?

Sorry--it's been on my mind a lot lately. I'm interested in your thoughts on these things too; please tell me i'm not alone :(

thanks,

emily

It does not keep me up all night thinking about them but yes, I think about them.

Not really since it comes with the territory. As long as we have domestic pets this will be an issue.

That aside, welcome to the forum!
