Thread: So Annoyed!

  1. #1

    Default So Annoyed!

    I have a cousin who has a 20 month old daughter, she keeps taking free pets from the paper (dogs and cats) and then dumping them a few days/weeks later. Her daughter is very rough with animals, picks them up by their necks, pulls their tails, pokes their eyes and as you would imagine, these pets she is taking on aren't appreciating that kind of treatment and either bite, growl or scratch her daughter which then leaves them homeless as she'll either dump them at the pound/shelter or just let them go out the front!

    She has brought home around 5 dogs and god knows how many different cats which she no longer has, with 2 of the dogs she actually called the pound and told them to come and pick them up because they "mauled" her daughter, really it was a warning growl, so obviously these dogs got put down.

    I'm completely fed up of hearing about this and my stomach is churning at the thought of her bringing home another poor animal.
    I have told her i'm disgusted at the way she is treating animals and i don't think she should get a pet for her daughter as she obviously cannot treat them with respect because she clearly has never taken the time to teach her how to treat an animal. I also said her way of getting rid of these animals is totally immature and plain cruel.

    She has mentioned having a look today for another pet.. How can i get it through her head? what can i say??

    any chance you could have this discussion with the RSPCA.

    It reads like the cousin is a sociopath. They often start by torturing animals and then progress to humans.

    Maybe your cousin could get a pet rock instead?

    Your cousin sounds about 2 cents short of a dollar! Just let her know its illegal to dump animals and that you may be forced to call the police on her!!

    I think you should talk with the RSPCA (or another rescue shelter) anyway. They must come across of all sorts of weirdos in their work and perhaps they have a good idea on how to tackle this sort of behavior. Just imagine what she teaches her daughter about animals *shudder*
