~ Mi Gatito~ Ofelia Esparza
So I’m walking home and I’m crossing the street and I see this couple crossing and the girl waving good bye behind her. I’m thinking she’s waiving to a friend but as I make my way across the sidewalk I don’t see anyone. I get to the corner only to see a BABY KITTY meowing under a sign for rotisserie chicken. Without even thinking twice about it I pick him up and the BABY KITTY starts purring and caressing me as if I was his mom. I’m an animal lover and when I saw that BABY KITTY standing there meowing, I knew I had to pick him up. I was going to go home and drop some stuff so I could take him to the animal shelter, but something interesting happened on my way home.
This couple stopped me to admire the BABY KITTY and his cute as a button personality. I asked them if they wanted the BABY KITTY since I found him. I told them that when I take him to the animal shelter, he’s going to get looked over, get his shots and put up for adoption cause he’s a BABY KITTY. But with the way things are, I wasn’t sure how long the BABY KITTY would be at the shelter alive or they would even bother giving him a check up so he could be adopted because of La Crisis. Luckily the guy offered to take him home even after i asked him three times if he could take care of BABY KITTY. So I handed BABY KITTY over and we went our separate ways. So what’s the moral of story, in the words of Bob Barker, “Help control Americas pet population. Spay or neuter your pet.” There are soo many pets all over ther city because people are too irresponsible to properly look after them or because they lost everything and couldn’t take them with. With soo many people losing houses and jobs, pets have been getting dumped at pounds now more than ever and with the city getting tight on money, the city pound can’t afford to keep them all up for very long. Please look after your animals folks. I’m lucky that I have a friend that will let me keep my dog at their house, other wise I would have giving her up for adoption. My Harley means the world to me and even though I see her everyday right now, I do my part and look after her. I’m not alone but the majority of pet owners forget about them the minute they stop being cute and crap on the wrong place. That’s when they get tied up in the back yard and are abandoned to say the least. So look after your pets folks and do your part in controlling the pet population. I would take in every stray dog I see if I could and feed BABY KITTIES all day long, but if the numbers keep growing, even I won’t be able to help them.
