    I can't understand people. Why have any animal if you are just going to abuse it. Its odd my one of my daughter's Maine Coons would hiss and swat at me if I tried to pet her (didn't like males) her sister used to run after me and cry if I didn't pet her.

    Both of my fur babies were rescue dogs. Both came from abusive situations. It makes me so mad that people neglect and abuse their animals. If you can't love and take care of them give them to the humane society so they can find a loving for-ever home.

    I believe my Baggy was abused by the former owner's roommate. Some guys play too rough with small kids & animals. Idiots.
    Baggy was very fearful of any hand. Scratched me in fear because he didn't see me trying to pet him. But looked guilty. He didn't mean to hurt me. By that time - he was beginning to trust me.
    After about a year or so, he became the move affectionate cat I ever had.
    Fuzzy has been here about a year. Wasn't used to humans when he came. He's slowly warmed up. Now sometimes sleeps on the bed with me for a little while. Or at least in the bedroom. So he's joined in the family;
    It takes time to win over an abused or neglected animals. But it is so worth it.
    Thanks for the info.

    Makes me furious. **SIGH** Trusting creatures that depend on us . . . just horrible when they're mistreated.

    I have a little dog. She won't let me touch her ears. She has such a bad matt on one of her ears. I know it's painful. So I made her a grooming appointment. She will do anything for the groomer

    It sickens me to think that people would be this cruel.
