Treats on the Internets

A NJ woman brought a homeless mama cat and kittens to a shelter but after the mama cat tested positive for FIV, the shelter decided to kill all of them.  The lady said she’d take the family back but the shelter refused.  She then contacted Pets Alive in NY for help.  They also offered to take the cats but again, the shelter refused.

Don’t dumbasses have anything better to do in SC than vandalize the local cat shelter?

    Hahahaha industrial farming is better for the planet. Nicely played Stanford. Be selective enough in your study and you can spin ‘science’ any way you want it. Ridiculous.

    • I have no doubt that any study could support any conclusion. Thus, I don’t get too excited about studies like I usta.
