To answer your question... animals in third world countries pretty much take care of themselves (or they at least try to).

I suppose you can call China a 3rd world country. At least it was when I lived there. We used to have a black cat that showed up in our kitchen every few months. Stayed for a few weeks, sometimes bringing in kittens. We'd feed it, give it water and stuff. Then it'd wander off again. I suppose you could say we "owned it", but I don't think anyone owned that cat.

Perhaps even a starving dog doesn't like Cheetos?

I always felt bad for the cows in India in the cities. I always wondered, does anyone actually own them? Especially since they're sacred, surely wandering through traffic busy streets munching on rubbish is no life for a holy animal?

I've heard that their stomachs get full of plastic bags and it slowly kills them. They deserve to be living out their days in a field somewhere.

haha, yea it was so sad that a dog refused food, he didnt know what it was by the looks on him, he was soooooo skinny and sad looking

i wish i had the time and resources to load him in a truck and get him shots to avoid disease and also to get him fed and make him a house dog

i wish, i only wish

I think I have gotten my quota of hugging in today (and everyday). All of my inside "kids" (ie: cats) got their morning hug and have decided to forgive me for treating them all with earmite meds yesterday. (I think they just forgot they were suppose to still be mad.) And, I petted and hugged all the ones I could get my hands on outside - that was 10 of them. I'm also "doctoring" two 10 week old kittens that a rogue male decided shouldn't exist (he lethally harmed the 3rd too). The kits are safe in a huge carrier and on the mend. They got extra hugs (and for Tway - kisses!).

As the Moderator for this forum, please don't turn this thread into a debate/arguement about the semantics of what is a first, second or third world country. It's about the animals, not the politics, and whether a nation is rich or poor - starving/abused animals can be found everywhere. Having been a Vet. Technologist in Vet clinics, I've seen my share of both. Thank you in advance for keeping this thread on topic. ;)

this whole post makes something in my brain say to you Isadora "i love you" :P

I hope you were wearing a Bomb Squad suit! ;) I'm still recvering from a three-dog night - literally. Two frisky labs and a basset hound in a closed house do not a happy Tway make. But I love them anyway...

They are both mending nicely. Gracie is going to take more work since she had deeper wounds and wasn't treated for a few hours after the bites. It happened while we were sleeping. Gus is in much better shape as I heard him and the attack was stopped as soon as I got outside. He's still with Gracie more for company and I'm not sure the rogue has moved on yet.

Thank you Zachary - much appreciated! (Though, I'm not quite sure how to take the :P... )

Since I knew you weren't coming by for dinner, I felt safe in foregoing the suit.

A third of our outside population (approx. 20 or so outside at any one time total) are strays that show up on their own or follow a resident one home after a hunt. Rarely do they leave since we feed twice a day and are well treated. (The rogue is not welcome as he does not play well with others. But, he's well-fed, healthy and obviously lives at a farm near by.)
