Angela wrote a very insightful and compassionate article and she gets right to the point. I've never hesitated to adopt older, injured, or disabled animals. They deserve love and comfort as much as any other animal. Maybe more. Because they probably wouldn't be *broken* if their owner had just cared enough to care for them properly.

Unfortunately we are a throw away society. Because of this and the ease of replacing things/people, we seem to forget that all animals, both young and senior, cat, dog, or bird are not replaceable. This society that grabs the senior animals should be commended for what they do. They are showing the animals, and humans if they care to open their hearts and minds, that age is immaterial. The love and caring shown to a pet is returned 1000 fold.

No one deserves to be thrown away just because they got old or they are not wanted anymore, those who throw animals, kids or the elderly away should always keep in mind that one day you too will get old and sick and someone will throw you away like an old shoe! What goes around comes around!

I don't understand why these people weren't prosecuted for animal abuse. That cat's condition and where he was found clearly indicate that he was abused and neglected. I am so glad he was rescued.

Bless the Grannie Project and its followers. These old timers value their lives just as much as we human old timers do.
There's more dignity in Babette's face than the people who trashed her will ever have.

These are true hero's. God Bless the souls of all the animals in the world and those that love and care for them. Many curses on those that abuse, abandon and kill and animal. You can see into the soul of a person by the way they treat an animal.

Starsze koty też mogą dać dużo radości i miłości. Sama wzięłam ze schroniska 2 starsze koty, których nikt nie chciał, są ze mną już ponad 2 lata.
