Note: If you are not able to take good care of pets (cats & dogs), do not keep them at all if you are going to abandon them when they grow up.
There are a lot of people in our country (Serbia) that want cute kitty or puppy for their kids to play, and when they grow up people just let them go and take another small and cute animal.
Sometimes people take dogs to some village and let them there, because dogs can come back if they are close to the home...
Without shelters for stray animals in a big city they are lost, it's sad, but true... pets are not guilty for being on the street, they are not toys ...
I rescued and found home for many abandoned kittens, but I just can't save them all... and our streets are filled with stray cats and dogs and country is doing nothing about that.
Thank you all for your comments about abandoned pets, I really appreciated your opinion.

I hope they got nice homes
I have sitting on my lap a kitten I found at one week old. The neighbors had found her mother's nest fell down from the roof of their garage, and she had nowhere to move the kits. Her sibling was already dead by the time I got to her. She's now about 4-5 weeks. I am very much in support of spaying and neutering cats, because that means that no feral kittens are born and no cat has to go through raising them or being raised on the streets.
I have a hard time understanding how a person could abandon an animal. The 2 cats and 2 dogs that are 'mine' are my life and I couldn't ever bring myself to part with any of them. My two cats rush the door whenever I get home from work, the dogs are usually outside singing to come in and say hello - it's a kind of love that I have never experienced from a person and likely never will. To abandon something that loves you unconditionally - it's too cruel to put into words. And animal abusers are even worse. My huskyxaussie cross was a rescue from a bad home - poor thing wouldn't come into the house and spent the first week in a crate when I brought her home and wouldn't come out unless she absolutely had to. It's been almost 2 years since I brought her home and she is finally starting to trust people - this past month was the first time I ever had her 'sing' and 'talk' in excitement when I arrived home... Little things like that are amazing and yet people can toss these creatures aside like they were an old broken toy in favor of a newer model.
ANYWAYS. I love the picture! And the mother's coat is gorgeous (and just the look they are both giving! Precious!!)
These two are beautiful :heart" I love mama cats coat. Lovely colours and little missy there has a cute cheeky face! X] If it was up to me I would adopt as many cats as possible and be a crazy cat lady!
My cat Yoda, is one of the only kittens who I could get to come close to me, the other 3 were and are terrified of humans. Someone left them in our neighborhood, they were only 6-8weeks tops. Its so sad. D:
Wow, Mom's markings are really unique.
Thank you for finding homes for as many as you have. My own cat Luna was a stray. She was just put out with her mom and brother. She was just a kitten then. For 13 1/2 years I have looked at her and thought about the unfortunate person that will never get to meet this amazing animal because they thought that dumping animals is an okay thing to do.
I know at times it may feel like what you are doing is not making a difference, but it is. It makes all the difference in the world to the cats that have new homes and to the homes that are now a little brighter. It helps people become more aware of this problem so that maybe one day it wont be.
Again, thank you for helping them.
We got the same problem in our neighbourhood. If they would only sterilize there cats, there wouldn't be so many unwanted kittens. They have so many, they can't care for all of them anymore. It's sad.
hopefully someone will adopt
You photography is beautiful and I love that you're calling attention to the plight of these animals.
Cats are good at surviving in lots of places but it's better if they can be taken care of by someone.
There's a stray cat by the place I used to live and people are feeding her/him.
that's how i would use my money...
things are better in finland, abandoning a pet is a crime, and it leads to penalty. despite that, there's a certain amount of strays every year, but there's also a statutory animal shelter in every town, where we can bring strays we find...
thank you for doing your share rescuing animals!!!
