Im not trying to get involved, but we're animal lovers on this forum. I can't understand why you feel you help the animals, that list shocked me. No amount of excuses makes up for it, and I feel like I need to be involved if you can't even face the fact that you hoard animals and then ship 'em out. Ever wonder what happens to them? Or doesn't it concern you anymore? How can you sleep at night? Do you ever have any emotional attachment to them? Ever thought of these things!
Sienna. I am REALLY trying to keep you out of this because you do NOT understand.
I know where EVERY SINGLE ANIMAL I have ever placed is and how they are doing. They are ALL with the families that I placed them with. I will give you no more explanation as you have not been involved and you do not know what all has been said prior to this. This is YEARS of issues.
I did not bring THIS on. I am sorry that you insulted someone because you thought you knew more on how to be a parent then someone who ACTUALLY has kids. But I never would have taken it off of that thread just for the simple sake of a fight.
I just wanted some help with the cat pee. Nothing more.
I don't understand. I don't understand how anybody can rehome 10 plus animals, your right. I don't think my heart is made of stone, I'm sorry for not understanding.
Don't hold back anything, you can say what you want to say to me. Because, I don't think there is any excuse for it. It's hardly the rehoming issue, the real issue is you not being able to 'fess up! And the fact that you repeatedly bought new dogs/cats into the home, only to be rehomed or pts. What were you thinking!
Why even tell us this on a forum, you know we're just going to be in SHOCK! I'm entitled to my opinion. I'm not "involved" or "trying to bash". But I feel VERY strongly about this.
Katz, I think the only problem that some of the members here have is that it is a pattern we have seen for almost 2 years now.
It's starts with you getting a pet and showing a lot of pictures. Then the pictures get fewer and further between. Suddenly, there are issues with this pet and you ask for advice on how to correct it. Then, a new pet comes into the equation and the focus turns to them. Lots of pictures and whatnot. Finally, the older pet is rehomed because you couldn't correct those problems, but they go to fantastic homes (in your words), so it's okay. It's justified in your eyes.
In the beginning, (almost 2 years ago) I think everyone was pretty understanding. They pretty much kept quiet and just read it all play out. But it has been happening for so long, that it's hard for members to keep quiet anymore.
And what's worse, is that now that members are beginning to speak up about it, you get upset and lash back at them, when you put all this information up in the first place. If it's that much of an issue, it's hard to understand why you keep posting the same type of things over and over. And when people come to your aide because they don't know the history, and some members speak out about what has happened, you feel like a victim and take a break from the forum. You then come back a few months down the road, when there are new people and start it all over again. Almost like you're hoping for a fresh start. You start off by just responding to a few threads here and there, and then when it seems comfortable to you, you start in with advice on a problem with one of your pets and the cycle continues once again. So to the people that have been here from the beginning, it's just a repeat of events when we read about any pet problems.
And it's not like it has happened once or twice, its happened a lot. Enough times that it's almost predictable. The pattern is chilling. And now that people are being more vocal and questioning it, you keep saying you want to change, and refuse to get more pets, but then you continue to do so. On the 'other forum' you made the same claim to all of us. Asking us to forgive you and help you to get better about rehoming. And we all did. I felt really bad for getting on you about it, and put a lot of faith in you, and you let me down when you did it again. I was so bummed that you seemed so sincere, and then didn't follow through with what you wanted to accomplish.
So I think that's where a lot of this comes from. And as hard as it is to hear, you have to put yourself in our shoes. We see it and read it everyday. So our perceptive is different. It's hard to ignore something that you continually see for not just a week or so, but years.
But if you respond, I may not be able to respond back because I'm getting ready to go to bed and unless I stay on this site, it automatically logs me out and I don't know if I will be able to get back on tomorrow. But once again, sorry for the novel ya'll. I don't always type like this I swear. Just haven't been on in awhile, lol
That was a LONG thread Bec, isn't that what I did? Can't really think of what I could possibly add to that, lol.
I get annoyed at stuff sometimes, and laugh a lot when people say certain things, but mainly because I don't hear those sort of things often and find them amusing and creative. Like your and Maf's "I think I just peed a little" comments that ya'll always do, lol. But when it comes to actually be confrontational, I'm not very good at that.
