Woman Competes to Raise Money for Animal Shelter

It’s no surprise that many pet adoption centers throughout the nation and east Idaho are having a hard time keeping up with all the animals they have; as well as finding those animals a new home. That’s why 4 Paws Pet Adoption in Rexburg is thrilled about the chance they have to receive a $2,000 grant.

Stray-Cat Feeders TRAIN Feral Cats To Attack Humans -- These cat-lovers always like to claim that feral cats run away from humans, and therefore aren't the cause of all the thousands of new rabies cases. Google for: feral cat attack rabies Don't be surprised at the numbers of search-hits you get, nor the thousands of horrendous stories that go with them. The numbers of rabies cases or required rabies shots caused by feral cats have been exponentially growing as fast as the cats breed. These cat-feeders are TRAINING these disease-infested cats to approach humans for food. And what happens when that child (or foolish adult) doesn't have food and reaches down to "pet the cute kitty" or pick it up to try to take it home? The cat lashes out and bites or scratches the hand that has no food for them. That means MANDATORY $1000+ painful rabies shots for the child (or any adult that is just as ignorant and naive). Paid for out of their OWN pockets -- because NOT ONE of these cat-feeders carries one penny of liability insurance for the DEADLY danger they bring to their communities. The ONLY difference between rats and cats these days is that people who own and love pet-rats aren't severely mentally unbalanced and trying to hoard feral-rat populations on other people's public and private properties -- while also relentlessly petitioning all their lawmakers to do so. Pet-rat owners, and all other types of pet owners, at least have THEIR sh** together. If only the same were true of all these mentally-ill TNR cRat-hoarders. (I still think it's their cats' Toxoplasma gondii parasites in the cat-lovers' brains that make them so unfalteringly blind to their own stupidity, hypocrisy, and absolute absurdity.)

Suggesting using any cats taken from outdoors for adoption could make you criminally responsible. There's no way to know a wild-harvested cats' vaccination history, if any, nor their exposure to all the deadly diseases cats carry. If a cat has contracted rabies then a vaccination later will do no good. It's already too late. There's no reliable test for rabies while keeping the animal alive. They need to be destroyed after they are trapped. It's the only sane and sensible solution. All wild-harvested animals of any type intended for the pet-industry must undergo a quarantine up to 6 months before transfer or sale of those animals to prevent just these things. Cats are no different than any other animal when wild-harvested. You're risking this following story happening in every shelter across the land. www.charlotteobserver.com/2011/09/23/2631106/rabid-cat-adopted-from-wake-county.html Adopting any cat taken from outdoors is just playing Russian Roulette. Another: www2.wjtv.com/news/2012/sep/12/rabid-kitten-found-in-jamestown-exposure-possible-ar-4532309/ Even vaccinating your cat against rabies won't prevent it from finding the a rabid bat on the ground to rip it to shreds for its play-toy. Then bringing back a mouthful or claws full of fresh rabies virus to you, your family, neighbors, other pets, or other animals. These are just the diseases they've been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Campylobacter Infection, Cat Scratch Disease, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Plague, Rabies, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasma. [Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] Sarcosporidiosis, Flea-borne Typhus, and Tularemia can now also be added to that list.
