Listen to what I say (to my cat, Saucers) starting at 1:27. It goes as follows:
"Okay buddy, time to get off."
(Stop the car, wait for him to get off.
He doesn't move.)
"No? Alright, a little bit further."
I'm sorry, I, on one hand, am glad that you care about animals and their well-being as much as I do, because I truly truly do, I foster puppies and
have three cats and a dog and (well, the dog and one cat is my roommates) and I have deep deep empathy for animals of all kinds. I don't even kill
roaches!! I pick them up and take them outside. Same with spiders. But on the other hand, your comment was pretty harsh and COMPLETELY off base and
unnecessary and out of line. And to anyone who knows me (which is no one on here, obviously) would make you sound utterly insane and ignorant.
Again, YOU DO NOT KNOW MY CAT. HE LOVES RIDING ON CARS. Yes, I think it is funny too, but he truly enjoys it. LIke I said, he even sticks his head out
the window like a dog when he rides in the car with me. I had to drive him around a lot as a little kitten because I would go home from college and
then back, and it's an 18 hour ride. So he got use to cars and now enjoys it. Plus, I live in Georgia. It was NOT cold. And he does this all the time
even when it's NOT cold. Sure, he sits on the car when it is cold to stay warm, but he also just ENJOYS riding on cars.
Man, I can't believe I have to defend myself like this to you, but I must, because the last thing in the world I am is cruel to animals.
I have held three cats of mine in my arms as they died, one was hit by a car, one was bit by a brown recluse (she hid herself and we couldn't find her
until moments before she passed) and the other was very sick with something (but she was a stray cat that we took in and kept for a few
months...couldn't do much for her as far as medicine because we have no money, but I did hold her and calm her down while she spasmed and vomited
violently for thirty minutes before finally dying in a towel in my arms...AND YOU THINK I DON'T CARE ABOUT MY CATS????
