:bulletblue: Mother & daughter, people from the building are taking care of them as much as they can.

:bulletblue: 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 ...

:bulletblue: 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.

:bulletblue: Thank you all for your comments about abandoned pets, I really appreciated your opinion.

People believe cats and dogs are "animals". Technically, they are, but they have minds that are smart, and intelligent, and they are not supposed to be treated like garbage, because they care, and have done nothing to hurt us. It's sweet that you are acting for them, and helping them.

This made me cry. I can't believe that people do this. Don't just get a kitten or puppy then rid of it when it gets big. My cat grew up and isn't as cute as a kitten, but I kept him and I love him to no end. There are way to many strays in my community and some of them don't make it (if you know what I mean). I't not fair to them, they are living and have feelings just like people.

I hate when people abandone animals -.- In my village abandoned cats arrive and search for a new home, and me and my parents try to give them a shelter and food. The last one is a little cat (I think one or two years old) who is quite scared, but we feed him and give a refuge for the night and bad days.

See, I don't understand why people would do that. When I move out, I plan to have cats and kittens to take pictures of, and some other animals too. So when they get old I'll just love them more, no leave them. Any cat on the streets are going with me

I have changed my view recently from all humans being bad, to only most are. there are good ones too. and it is the good ones job , or burden, to save the other creatures from our own.  which is really saddening that we have to save others from us. humans are suppose to be so evolved and intelligent but there is so much lack of heart. with so many religions in the world one would think there are enough spiritual teachings that there would be more heart but sadly no.

Maybe a spay and neuter program, to keep numbers of strays from rising?  

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.

If I had infinite funding and space I would have a lot more paws running around the house.  The current count in the house is 32 ((4 cats, 4 dogs) or 34 if you count how big my German Shepherd's paws are.) )

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!!) :heart:

I dislike people who buy a cat or dog or any pet and then ditch it. :( it's hard to be rejected.
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! :D

Same here in the US. 3:
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:
