How do send yourself into a depression in 10 minutes or less
Animal Concerns Community
They update the news every day. I used to read it every day. But nowadays.. well, I haven't checked it in weeks, specifically because it depresses me. I looked today, and I am just... agh, I just cannot believe the enormous amount of people doing truly, truly, truly awful things. And how they get away with it! Some lady kept 70 pets in such awful conditions that 38 of the 49 cats had to be put down and the question at hand is whether she should be allowed to keep pets anymore. WHY IS THAT A QUESTION?! If someone had 49 babies and neglected 38 to the point that they were too unhealthy to LIVE, would it be a question? I know cats aren't babies, but c'mon now..
A lot of the animal hoarders are sick, sick people. Animal lovers with a mental problem; try to save them all instead of knowing your limits and seeking help. Not evil; just sick. But so many of those other people? You steal a beloved 15-year-old cat to kill it? You let your rottweiler die in your backyard, covered in maggots? You burn a puppy with acid? There's no excuse for these people, letting or making
innocence suffer. How about we start treating people who abuse animals and children how they've treated their victims?
All these stories just make me think.. what hope do humans have? When THIS HORRIDNESS is in our nature? Why do we show joy, or even apathy, at another being's suffering?
Blah. So I'm going to return to looking up pictures of kittens and sloths and fishies on Flickr and pretend the Animal Concerns page doesn't exist. I wouldn't want to give up on people entirely and become a hermit by 28, after all.
