Score One for Captain Obvious

Then again, considering how dumb a lot of people are with their pets, they probably do need to be told:

Before you make good on threats to banish your misbehaved cat to the local shelter, consider this: Fluffy’s chances of finding a new home may not be as rosy as you might hope.

Felines surrendered by their owners are more stressed, fall ill more easily and are therefore euthanized more often than their stray counterparts at the shelter, according to new research by Kathryn Dybdall at the University of Nebraska in Omaha, US.

Cats around Ellen just naturally end up living 6 times longer than they would otherwise, but that's not what you'd call a typical case. Take care of your damned pets, people!

I am glad I was able to give Arbor and Lovie a loving home. They are here till the end. Their previous owners don't know what they are missing!!!
I hope they also feel guilty for what they did.
