Haha, indeed.

I'd like to adopt them, but if we kept all of the strays as pets, I would have a total of 6 felines along with a snake and multiple fish. The vet bills would be too much. One of my two cats was originally a stray kitten. Normally, he would have just been accepted as another cat that needed food, water, and shelter (we build them places to live in the backyard). But his ribs could be seen beneath his coat, which was full of fleas, and he wouldn't have survived here, living outside on his own.

But they certainly have it better than most strays.

Sometimes Feral cats dont want to be adopted, and are used to their life, but accept food from people.

Yeah, it's wise not to take in an animal like that on a whim. It's so hard not to get attached, though. In an ideal world I'd have a mega-farm for all the suffering animals in the world, and it would be paradise to them.

Sorry to derail, but witnessing strangers kiss is...unappetizing.

Its hard to volunteer at a shelter too. If I was allowed Id have like 10 cats, no lie, I have the urge to take home all the cats.

Tell me about it man. It's such a wonderful thing to do, but I can't walk into a shelter without crying. Now let's not bring up those Sarah McLachlan commercials...

That's true. But we make sure they have food, water, shelter, and heat sources. All of the strays were probably pets aside from one; he's the only one of the group who isn't fixed.

Ugh I hate those ads for animal shelters, as well. T:
I mean really. They might get more people to support them if they didn't kill every other animal that sets foot in the building. I live in Pennsylvania and the shelter here is pretty bad. It was like 79% of animals never make it back out. Now they claim they're going no-kill, but that won't last. If it does, they'll stop accepting animals, which defeats the purpose.

It really is horrifying. I don't want to experience the mindset one would have to hurt an innocent creature.

@slenderman- I think you're doing the right thing. I feel like feral cats who have adapted to their lifestyle would prefer not to be cooped up in a stranger's home.

I guess people who are just really messed up. T:
That's only my guess, though. I could never hurt any of my pets, even when they do irritate me. My snake bites or attacks people when they try to hold her, but I just tolerate the bites. I certainly wouldn't hurt her back.

@Outfox (because I don't know what else to call you)
Why is that chubby kid crying? I totally forgot about it for a minute there. It actually took me a minute to understand it. (;

Edit: Just seen your new post.
Thanks. But oddly enough, they try to come in the house sometimes. At least two of them have made it inside, only to be carried back out before they give my cats fleas. One of them was just casually strutting through the living room, his tail held high as he rubbed himself against someone's leg to be pet. I wasn't home at the time, but apparently he had walked right in when nobody was looking.

My half-bro told me a story about a couple he knew that had gone to Mexico with their four-year old girl. She disappeared during their time there, and they weren't able to find her until the day they were to return to the states. They found her in a carseat, dead and stuffed with cocaine- she had been kidnapped and killed so someone could use her as a dummy to smuggle drugs with. These are the kinds of things that make me question my idea of "evil."

Sorry so depressing.

Oh, the sad fat kid represents me after eating too many cookies also, outfox is fine, my real name is Savannah if you'd rather call me that. I'll respond to either. what's ur name?

I didn't hear about that, but wow. People have to be pretty darn messed up to do something like that. T:

Haha, okay. But how are you sad if you just ate those cookies? o;
Ah, my real name isn't around the internet. People generally call me Slender, or you can just call me whatever you'd like (I've received some pretty odd nicknames by saying that...one of which I believe was "pudding dumpling").

I'm so glad someone's online now @_@ I'm not allowed to leave where I am for another hour, I've been going a little crazy with boredom. I've gotten a lot of stuff done, though. *pats self on back*

Well, fat kid's not sad about the cookies, binging on them are how fat kid copes with his misery. But he's miserable because he's fat. It's a depressing cycle.

Pudding dumpling...how nice. I'll call you Dango.

I'm with family. They're loony, so pretending to be busy making lesson plans on my computer is how I avoid them.

It doesn't feel too bad outside (aren't you from Texas?), but I'm around a bunch of menopausal women so, I empathize. How has your day been?

Alright then, I'll have to remember that.

Wow okay. I was being nosy and looked at your profile. I misread "Teaching toddlers and selling drugs" as "Teaching toddler to sell drugs" oops.

I would do the same! Haha. Well, it's around 43 here, so it's chilly. I'm from north east Texas, though, so I mean..we don't experience THAT much cold :B My day has been decent, I've working.

I have a question for y'all: when you go out to eat, how well do you tip your waiter? I didn't know before I started waiting tables that waiters basically LIVE off of tips. So, that's why I ask. :B

Well, I did take my class on a field trip to my drug dealer's. I want them to be open to all career opportunities, okay?

@erik: I'm a bit further south, it's around 60 here. I wish it would stay this way forever.
and I don't really do the math for tips. 10% is the standard, but I always over-tip. What kind of restaurant will you be working at? I know some waiters who barely make it and others who do far better than those who make full minimum wage.

Well...I don't go out to eat, honestly. So I can't really answer that properly.

It's in the 30s here. I was outside earlier without a coat and was fine, though.

the tipping system doesn't exist here in nz lol
if someone does get tipped, then it's definitely a shock because it's simply not how things work here lol
though it's because we have a higher minimum wage than you guys soooo

though when i tipped in america i just gave them what i thought was appropriate (nothing stingy), though there was one ~charming~ waiter who snorted at me so i gave him far less than what i normally would have!!!

Why did he snort at you?
I know it's not what you meant, but when people say "snort/snorted/snorts", I think of that noise kids make to imitate pigs. T:

I normally tip the standard 15% though if I get especially good service I'll tip better. Most of the time, unless the service was remarkably bad, $2 is the minimum if I'm by myself and my bill is like $10.

Every now and then I'll get a little tip happy. I round up usually and if they're great I'll add a good amount on top of the bill. :)

I almost always go a little bit over the customary 10/12% and go for about 15%, since I never get a server who is despicable enough to short what they work so hard for.

I do between 10 and 15, making it so my bill ends up even. Usually my bill is so small that I don't have many choices though.
