Ok, here is a fun game we do at the shelter, to keep our sanity, when it seems the people coming in are bound and determined to make us lose it
You have been thrown out of your apartment, you don't have a job, nearest family member is a few states away, you can't take care of yourself, let alone your pit bull (and the cops have also told you said pit bull CANNOT be in city limits, due to city laws) do you
1. Call around to friends (if any) to see if any of them can help with the dog
2. Call your vet (if any) and see if they can help
3. Call the local humane society and try to argue them into 'boarding' the dog for however many weeks, refuse to consider paying at all, and scream if they say 'after xx days the dog is ours, and to get him/her back, you'll have to pay the adoption fee.
You are looking at kittens, and you see another room. Looking through the glass, you see a couple of kittens, so you try to go in, the door is locked, there is a sign on the door stating 'Ringworm, Very contagious, STAY OUT' do you:
1. sigh, shrug, perhaps ask when those kittens might be available
2. ask about going in, but accept that we are not allowing people in, perhaps ask when those kittens will be available (perhaps even ask about ringworm)
3. Scream, yell, try to break the door down, insist, loudly upon being allowed into that room, despite warnings that ringworm IS contagious, refuse, equally loudly to signing a waiver that states you insisted on being let into a room with a zoonotic disease, threaten to sue us if you can't see the kittens, (and then threaten to sue should we let you in,and you, or your kids DO get ringworm.)
If you answered any other way, those kittens should be available in a couple of weeks, the ringworm is clearing up nicely....and we have the CUTEST possible Maine Coone kitten about ready for fixing too.
To answer other questions, yes the rabbit IS for adoption, no I don't know if it is a boy or girl (and don't really care)yes, it is gentle, no, I don't know how it will act outside a cage. Yes, that IS a siamese, no she is NOT a cuddles, she is aloof, but has never hurt anyone, but I do NOT suggest just reaching in and grabbing the poor girl.
OH....and yes many, if not nearly all the cats will 'reach out and try to touch' Many will use claws to do so. We cannot stop this, and most of the time, they only do this while inside the cage. If you don't want them to do so....stay out of claw and paw range. (and tell your kids the same)
and a quick edit on number one....bossman was more than willing to work with this lady. He offered to board the dog for even just ten bucks a week, lady just would not work with him and kept insisting it was OUR DUTY to keep her dog for free. (and yes, make sure he had vet care, vaccinations, and for all I know, champagne and caviar)
