Gotta love rednecks!

Well...I just found a little kitty today.....in my RECYCLE BIN! Since I am the only one in this whole county that I have ever seen that actually HAS a recycle bin....and that recycles, I guess some local redneck thought it was a "dump your kitty" bin! Well, she's black and white, tiny, and very cute. She's with my other kitty Farrah right now who seems to be in heaven with her new friend. I guess they both are. Hey, at least they didn't put her in my garbage can! What is wrong with people?!

i'm assuming from your post there was no way she could have snunk into it (like you have a lid or its tall or whatnot).

i don't get people sometimes. maybe they thought you would give her a good home? good to hear that your other furbaby is happy with her friend.

while in Athens (GA!) I found three wonderful 5 WEEK OLD !! kittens in a dumpster (if I could figure out how to underline that twice, I would).  We found great homes for two; we kept one.  Still could never figure out how some SOB could DROP THREE 5 WEEK OLD KITTENS IN A #%^$%&%^% DUMPSTER!!!!  AAIIIRRRGH!

Spanish people are forever dumping kittens and puppies in the trash or leaving them in the mouths of culverts, probably hoping it will rain and they'll be drowned. Charming people, not. I love living here but just recently have had personal experience of their complete lack of compassion in some respects--and their complete lack of self-knowledge about it. Animals are just "things" to them.

I'm glad that you found the kitty, Dave.

Maybe you should set up a surveillance video around the perimeter of your property and catch these cat- and dog-tossing dirtbags in the act.

I live in the redneck enclave of Tampa and am feeding four abandoned kitties outdoors and took in a pregnant stray two years ago that I ended up keeping along with one of the kittens (I found homes for the other 4).  It has been my experience that rednecks are despicable, irresponsible, morons that don't spay or neuter their pets and dump them when they become inconvenient.  You are a good person Dave, and what a lucky kitten.  Most aren't that lucky!

Hey!!! Bad people are bad people. I grew up redneck and am proud of it. My family and many others I know have taken in countless strays. Not all 'rednecks' are white trash.

Thank you taneva for defending "our" people!  I know a lot of rednecks who love their dogs and cats as much as they do their kids and they love their kids a lot.  I remember years ago, my dad spent hours and hours trying to rescue an abused dog that had taken refuge in a small "cave" that erosion had carved in a sandstone hill near our town.  At first the dog would rather starve than let a human near him.  My dad left food outside the hole for him and talked real gentle to him.  Eventually he grew to trust Dad.  Dad would have loved to gotten his hands around the neck of the a**hole who hurt that dog!

One of our cats loved to jump into dumpsters that were left open.  One time someone closed the lid on her and she stayed there a very cold night until my DH took the trash out and found her.  She never did that again.  She's 10 years old now.

Well, Sorry to offend either of you. MOST (and I said MOST) Rednecks where I live are irresponsible pet owners. They keep their dogs outside 24/7. Some just wander, some are tied to trees. They are not "fixed"....oh...and the word "fence" most mean prison to them, they don't understand that word. They add to the huge stray population in this county, not help. I have NEVER lived anywhere, or even SEEN anyplace that has as bad a stray problem as  I have I encountered here (and trust me I have lived in a lot of places and traveled to way more than most). Their idea of "animal control" is to "shoot" at stray dogs that wander up to their trailers. I had a police officer tell me once that all who could do to make the numbers of strays go down here , is shoot them when he sees them!!!! Trust me, these are not good caring souls I am living with here...

Dang, I never imagined that Georgia would be worse than Texas.  A lot people here are getting the message that you need to spay and neuter your pets.  Even my oil field roughneck brother gets his dogs fixed.  At least whoever put the kitten in the recycle box didn't use her to train his Pitt Bull to destroy.  I've heard of people doing that in Texas.  You do need to move, Dave.  The Austin area offers a lot of opportunities for a good musician.  Austin is in its own state of being separate from the rest of Texas.  If you can cope with crazy traffic, it's a great place to live.  (I can't cope with crazy traffic, personally.)

poor little kitty...

in my mom's neighborhood, it is just teeming with stray everything.  she adopted so many of them over the years.  i live in europe now, and i have to say i think sweden is onto something.  dogs are REALLY expensive here.  for example, we are looking into getting a dalamtian.  price tag??  $1150!!!  even for a mutt, you are looking at $700.  chihuahuas are the most expensive, about $2000.  and they are all microchipped.  what this means is that there are NO strays!!  there is no one whose dog just got pregnant and they are giving away puppies or leaving them in dumpsters.  they are seen as having a value (although a monetary one) and thus, are never abandoned.  there are no animal shelters here because they don't need them.  it is true in many aspects of life, when something is free or even just cheap, many people will see it as having no intrinisic value either.

I'm glad someone stood up for us white trash folks, too!! I didn't want to be the first to say somethin since I am so disliked by people on here anyway. I'm glad that little kitty is ok. I've rescued lots of animals too, mostly cats and reptiles. Guess we're softies like that, huh?

I just have to say that I KNOW some of the dogs that I have rescued up here in the mountains probably came from the suburbs of Atlanta. Some of the "purebred" dogs had collars, some had "tags" with disconnected phone numbers. I even called some of the Vet's on the dog's Rabies collars and they always told me that they would look up the owner and try to get in touch with them  and get back to me......not once did I get a call back. It's not only Rednecks that dump dogs or cats. It's just BAD PEOPLE......why do they think that someone will either take care of them?...or even worse?!...that they can "make it on their own"....why?! :'(

go look at the dogs in my gallery....all rescued and strays....all of them...(and that is only a fraction of those that I found or have saved).....sad is it not?

Yeah, I just wasn't sure how "white trash" was somehow less offensive to say than
"rednecks" !?  Labels are labels are labels are labels. Why does it have to be a white thing anyway?  :D 

I am NOT angry by the way! Seriously! Just havin' fun and I need some sleep. Love Ya''ll!!!

tofuttibreak, your dog is so cute!!!

...yeah, there are definiitely bad animal owners in all walks of life...  my mom has very wealthy neighbors who keep their expen$ive purebred dog in a tiny "pen" not in the backyard but--what's worse--IN THE GARAGE!!!  They did an expensive remodel on their backyard so the dog isn't allowed back there, nor is it allowed in the house.  Isn't that insane?  They hardly ever take him out of the cage or walk him.  I'm talking like once per week for about 10 minutes do they let him out. They leave the garage door open so he has a little fresh air and think that's enough.  Really terrible.  When my brother walks our dogs by their house the poor little dog goes crazy and whines and whines.  My mom finally got so disturbed that she went over to talk to them and got other neighbors to do the same and it seems to have helped a little, but they still leave the dog in the cage most of the time.  My brother and I keep threatening to steal the dog and find it a better home... but then they'd probably just buy another one.  Why does someone like that even get a dog in the first place?  They think that they're teaching their kid to value a dog, but all they're teaching him is that dogs are worthless objects that you can not pay any attention to and leave locked up in the garage...  Stuff like this makes me really sad.  :'(
