    Default I HATE animal horders...

    Ok, so most of you have seen on my FB page that my daughter Lily was holding a Sphynx cat last weekend. Our dog groomers had adopted this cat from a hoarding situation that was discovered here in our town (right down the street from where I used to live). The lady had over 50 animals… Sphynx cats and those Chinese crested dogs. Well when animal control came in of course all the cats must be spayed/neutered before they can be adopted. Well Rapunzel (our groomers cat) was spayed and she was SO weak when we saw her, poor thing was having a rough time… yesterday I found out that they had to put her to sleep Rapunzel had this disease called FIA, and it causes an anemic disorder where the liver starts to shut down. HERE is the kicker… it's spread by fleas biting these cats. ALL THOSE CATS WERE KEPT OUTSIDE IN STACKED CAGES… So now they are realizing that when these cats were being spayed/neutered this disease kicks into full mode… and some of the cats aren't surviving. So far 3 of these exotic cats have passed away…

    So these poor neglected babies have lived their whole lives in damn cages outside (and it's gets VERY hot here in TN) and when the finally get rescued and have loving homes they are dying because of the conditions that they were forced into. I'm SO angry… and I'm sure that this hoarder woman will probably get slapped w/animal cruelty and that's it.

    Sorry for this RANT, but I swear I'm so damn tired of hearing these stories and this one hits close to home…

    Aww that's such a sad story Tracey. This is sometimes a different situation from one where animals are found in abusive situations such as dog fighting rings, or where they are neglected and beaten, or in puppy mill situations. These people are more into keeping these animals for selfish reasons mostly for profit. They use and reuse the animals for breeding until they're not useful anymore and then abandon them, or they are cruelly used for dog fighting for money and constantly exposed to cruelty and pain. Most animal hoarders are animal lovers and they think they are rescuing or helping these animals, by giving them a home, but it quickly gets out of hand, because they can't take care of all these animals, they can't afford the vet bills, the spay or neuter surgeries, the vaccinations, or food for all these animals. This is still animal abuse, and it is a very sad situation, because the animals suffer and go hungry, and they often become sick from lack of care, and they get covered in feces, urine, fleas, and other parasites because of unclean living conditions and lack of vet care. Many of the people who do this are alone and lonely, and they keep all these animals because they are alone, and they think they are helping the animals.

    So far 3 of them have died, and I know that one of my friends got one as well and he's showing the signs… I'm really not sure if they can save any of them at this point.

    It's a heartbreaking situation… these are exotic animals that can NOT be kept outdoors. They needed weekly bathes and to be kept indoors. I sometimes watch that animal borders show and it makes me physically sick… those people need help!!!

    Rant away. It breaks my heart to hear this is happening. The only animals I ever let stay outside for extended periods of time were my ridgebacks, but those guys are built to withstand the heat and they loved it but even then they had shade and a misting system if they wanted to use it. Leaving hairless cats or dogs outside is just asking for trouble.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Horrendous! No pun intended. Extremely disheartening and this has not made my day.

    I'm with you on animal-hoarder-hate, Tracey. This is a very sad, senseless story. It's the animals who are the ones who suffer! Reminds me of that TV show called Hoarders. Sometimes these folks hoard dogs, cats, rabbits...very tragic.

    I have a good friend that works at Animal Control, in fact she was the one that got the call… she told me they were in COMPLETE SHOCK when they saw all those cages w/these exotic pets. I'm friends w/all of the rescues here in town, so of course they were posting info on FB. Absolutely sickening...
