My local humane society posts pictures of new adoptions. This one makes me so happy.
i love this photo so much
I’m sorry but no. Fuck all of you who like this. This man is going to die before the cat does and when that happens, the cat will more than likely go back to a shelter. This guy is a shitty person for adopting an animal that he know will outlive him. I know y’all wanna think it’s cute that this old guy has a kitten but no. It’s not cute. It’s reckless and irresponsible.
* assumes he’s old enough to have death that close
* assuming he doesn’t have a spouse that would outlive him.
* assumes he won’t care enough to make sure family or friends will look after the cat if he dies.
* assumes the cat would be adopted by someone else ‘more deserving’ and not left in a shelter or euthanized.
Anyone adopting an animal could get hit by a city bus tomorrow and die. You’re the asshole for saying he doesn’t deserve a pet (which could greatly improve the quality of his life potentially) because you think he won’t be considerate enough to make plans for it if he were to die.
I’m so angry about the cruel, ageist, vicious and presumptuous comment here. How dare anyone accuse an elderly person of being “shitty” for adopting a pet. You speak about the elderly as if they aren’t even people.
I sincerely wish all the best for this sweet man and his new kitty.
