Some of you may remember last year I started a thread about a lone guinea pig at a party my eldest DD went to... (don't know how to link)...
Just chatting to the friend, and I mentioned our girls have been in with all the bad weather (6 inches of snow here)... I made the stupid mistake of asking after the piggy I so desperately wanted to adopt
She said they havent changed anything with regards to him... he is outside... All on his own... And I know this is stupid but I almost cried and I again asked if I could have him! Her reply was 'don't start all that again'
So now having just given my girls some treats and cuddles I just feel so sad for him!
God, I need a slap! I can do nothing about it, don't even know why I'm posting tbh... Maybe just needed to say I wish people wouldn't get pets they dot fucking want or can't look after -- as good as me -- at all!!
What an absolute douchecanoe she was to reply like that. It's not just that she doesn't give a stuff about the welfare of a living creature, she doesn't give a stuff that you are distressed. She thinks it's funny.
I actually doubt the RSPCA will help very much. Even if they visit, the will probably just give some advice, a leaflet and leave, unless the animal is seriously injured, has no food or water or is in a very tiny enclosure. However, if you CAN get them to visit, at least it will be an embarrassment to her - van pulling up, inspectors going in, etc. I have a feeling that won't change her mind though. She's convinced she's right, you're being stupid and it's perfectly acceptable to treat a living creature as you would a toy that's no fun to play with anymore.
I'm thinking stupid things, like picketing her house, starting a petition against her on the Petition Site, telling her neighbours door to door.
Is the granny a sociopath as well? I'm guessing yes.
