    I am confused as to how some people can think I am cruel to animals just for the looks of my beloved cat Simon.
    See, last year around Christmas my beloved cat Simon went missing. I put up signs asking if anyone had seen him and also asked my very odd neighbors if they had seen him in their yard. To no luck I was sad that I could not locate him.
    Two weeks after his disappearance my grand father said he had seen him though Simon did not look right. I asked him what he meant by that and he said that it seemed as though something was in his eyes.

    Well another week goes by as I search for my cat whom now I thought was injured and I was correct, I located my beloved pet but after taking him to the vet his left eye could not be saved after something had kicked him in the face.
    After many vet visits he has had some teeth removed which had been broken and cracked from the thrust of the kick he had received from some cruel person. His jaw had healed wrong after having had been broken in the time I could not locate him.
    He has many problems with his nose now, smelling things is limited and so is his sight in his only eye but none the less I love my cat.

    Anyway what has brought me to this discussion is that my sister who I am currently feeding her animals for since she does not have the sense to do so herself, anyway she has decided to take it upon herself to tell me that my cat is suffering and that I should put him to sleep.
    Mindless she is I tell you, he is not suffering, he has monthly vet visits to make sure he is still perfectly healthy, he has a diet of wet and dry cat foods, has a lovely warm cat bed and is not over weight nor skinny.
    How can I be a cruel person? Why would she even suggest that I put him down when he has nothing wrong with him? The vet has given him a clear list of health!

    Try telling her that even though special needs people and paralyzed people may have to live differently than “normal” people do doesn’t mean we should kill them. You are an admirable cat owner who puts the extra effort in to make sure your cat gets what he needs. There needs to be more pet owners like you!

    Kind of late, but you’re not cruel. Let people think what they want, but just make sure you know who you are :)

    Thank you very much.
    He is not suffering rather he is getting a bit fat and lazy since during winter it’s to cold to go out for long walks.
    It is always odd weather here in the south, always had been really.

    If he was really suffering I would suggest it. but from what I see here he looks fine and you take great care of him. Cats are my whole world. Good luck with your Simon [:

    A picture of my companion Simon is my new avatar.
    Isn’t he sweet!
    Does he look to be unhappy or suffering?
