I volunteer at a cat shelter that arrives at a pet store every week, and we always have this sign in the front, WITH a barricade, clearly stating that NO dogs come into the area so the cats don't get all worked up.
Well, this one dumbass lady came in, picked up her dog, and shoved it's face right next to one of the cat cages, claiming that her dog has never seen a cat before and wanted to "introduce" it to a cat so it'd know what it'd look like.
And a guy did the same thing this week, except he just picked up the dog outside of the barrier and showed it the cats in the cage closest to the carrier.
And not to mention that it's so sad to see the full-grown cats get barely any attention from the customers. All they want are kittens and its just ugh.
None of the kitties got hurt, but it's just so irritating how self-centered they can be. There's very few of them though thank goodness. Well, one of our older cats that had been coming for a whole year got adopted this week. It was quite a celebration for us.
Sometimes a lot of research doesn't help at all. I got lots of research, help, and even went to a vet, and in the end, my leopard gecko still died because she refused to eat and no one knew why. But I'll admit, research is a lot better than going into something without any knowledge.
