If you want to get really and truly PO'ed, then please read the above kitty's diary.
Alfie....tiny angel dreamboat, why do you do this? You do it, becuase it's RIGHT! I didn't want to read it, but I did. Becuase I'm a big orange nosy cat with my nose always poking somewhere like the fridge (got any chicken?)
But this is something that made me really angry to the bottom of my paw pads.
The lovely cat mommy fostered tiny kittens. When they were 8 weeks and ready to go up for adoption, she returned them to the shelter....and they were KILLED THAT DAY!
Now, the reason our Mommy took in the kitty that's fostering with us is so that the Kitty didn't wind up in New Yorks own infamous Center for Animal Care and Control.
The sad truth is...until we can make this a NO KILL NATION this sort of place will exist. How do we work to change it, well, I could start to tell you, but if you go to no kill advocacy and google it, you'll get some ideas...but that is a different story.
This human is in pain. How terrible for her to reach out and try to help, and have this happen.
A shelter needs to be honest. If kittens being returned from fostering are going to be euthanized, why take them back? There are rescues that will foster. (I know, for our Foster goes to her 'day outs' for this reason-the group is a small, home based 'rescue')
I have a terrible feeling the Human Foster Mom didn't know...that it wasn't disclosed. This in and of itself is incredbily terrible! I am sure, after having fostered these babies, she would have made sure they got to somewhere they stood a chance!
Can we all, as a Catster Community, Reach Out to her! Can we all stand behind her if she chooses to do something about it! When you see these tiny little fur faces on her page, you will know why I say this!
I am asking for someone to please let Silvos Mom....Big Harry's Mom...know this. She did so much with her own area for her angel baby.
Now, I need a nip beer. Who's with me?

I read this - it's just awful! It makes me so mad and sad.
It made me so angry too. It made me cry and feel awfully sad. I really feel so bad for their Mommy.
We have fostered kittens here and we know how hard you work, but how rewarding it is to see them blossom and develop and thrive. We had fostered for an area shelter that warned us that they would do all they could to have them adopted but that there would be no guarantees. It made Mommy angry and sad and work so hard to make them social and loveable and still she prays that they all got adopted and did not meet a similar fate.
bro, it's a real sad story!! i really feel terrible fur the hooman and the KITTIES of coz!! why did the freaking shelter killed alla these coot kitties?? r thet stewpid or just INSANE??
Lets all reach out to this person...we can't imagine it....
It's why it's so important for us all...why we would, as cats, rather not have 'more' here, but do...because coming in from the cold...staying out of the cold, in a home....well, that we can do...
Ruffy, I remember when that happened Their foster mom didn't know they would be pts. She volunteered at that shelter and took those babies into her home, bottle fed them, cared for them and watched over them day and night. When they were old enough, she contacted the shelter WHERE SHE WAS A VOLUNTEER and they told her to bring the kittens in. The next day the kittens were euthanized WITHOUT TELLING HER! She found out the next day when she went to the shelter. The people at the shelter said the kittens were wild and couldn't be handled! Their poor foster mom was devastated when she found out. She said the kittens were socialized and not wild. She expected the shelter to put up for adoption or she never would have taken them to the shelter. It's a very sad story . . . :((
It was a wicked, evil thing to do. Every living, breathing creature deserves a chance of life. None more than these tiny kittens. Sweet babies I don't know how they could have done it.
