Kitten taken in

After calling around and around for the last two days, I still don't know who caught the kittens that the man working for pest control saw being trapped a few days ago. No one seems to know of the kittens being removed, though they did tell me that some cats had gone into one of the plant troughs. They did however tell me that they found another kitten just this afternoon. I called the man and he told me he's going down to take it home now to adopt (he and his wife have another cat too) but he has to change out of his uniform so no one knows that he is with a pest control company. He asked that the company not be told he's from a pest control company and I assured him I had not said anything.

Sad that people have to go to such lengths to be kind.

horrifying that people are so scared of social pressure and find it necessary to be sneaky to be kind.

I guess maybe in this case, it may be his job at stake too.

It inspires me that there are still people who take any risk for the sake of animals!

Cat is safely with the man. The woman who passed the cat over from the hotel was so happy he took it to adopt, she burst out crying.

You're not the only one - we've had other pest control personnel call us in the past too. At least one other man adopted some of the kittens.

Bravo to these pest control people who adopt the cats they are supposed to send to death. If more of us were to spend time thinking about the consequences of our everyday deeds, there will be far fewer deaths in this country.

If only we can capture the "faces" of all the cats at death row and their faces as they are being injected with the lethal anaesthetics....and these cats aren even drug pedlars! And then we show this on the TV to the people who show no mercy and tolerance by complaining over silly things like car scratches!
