I recently read a report that Animal Shelters in N I recently read a report that Animal Shelters in New York have received a spike in volume & they don’t have many dogs &/or cats in shelters right now. This makes me very hopeful & happy - for the animals & the humans who’ve decided to adopt—— BUT⁣

Do not F%!$ this up!!!!⁣
⁣
It is a big responsibility to care for an animal & you have no excuse should you adopt a furry friend and decide “it’s not the right fit” for your lifestyle. That mindset makes you not the right fit for humanity. ⁣
⁣
I’m trying to be optimistic right now & want to believe these adoptions are up bc people recognize the value of the love of a furry companion, however, i’m also rational and believe, sadly, these adopted pets may end up back in shelters bc of moronic, irresponsible people. (If you don’t believe me, look at how many people, currently, think we ought to commit senicide right now in order to get through this crisis.) Same people, if I had to guess.⁣
⁣
These animals have emotions - feel pain - give love & receive love. They are not disposable. AND, shouldn’t be adopted bc YOU need a friend. I suppose this is all moot if you believe you should let your grandma die so your stock portfolio goes back up. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I keep wondering if, after this is over, it might be in the best interest for those of us who have a few breaths yet to take, to consider electing leaders who embrace science? Consider that it’s only been in the past 3 years of my 46 years on Earth that the N-95 mask 😷 has become part of our collective lexicon. ⁣⁣⁣I wouldn’t want to have my child grow up in a world where we all have to wear gas masks. But, from the looks of things, it may not be far off. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
If you wish for a cure for this gripp - you have to have leadership that embraces science. Above all else. It doesn’t mean *instead* of all else. Just above all else. This year is not the year for superstition... please 🤒💉🧪🙏🏼

The government isn’t locking you in your rooms bc they care about YOUR health. They want you to stay in your rooms bc of the most vulnerable people that may be exposed to this virus. This way, should the most vulnerable people contract this virus, they will have access to proper care. Some of us can convalesce on our own with our dogs & a bottle of NyQuil. Please be kind. Just for a little bit. Then go back to being a pos if you want.⁣

I know this because she told me.
