Letter: Nondiscriminating Love for Animals
To the Editor:
I am responding to the April 19 letter regarding Lebanon’s Top Dog Contest discriminating against cats. I am not a fan of contests, but I am an animal lover, and over the years I have rescued quite a few, including dogs. Right now, I have a ferret that was going to be euthanized because she’s a biter. I manage to avoid the nips. (I named her Nipper). Most of the animals I’ve reared were cats. The majority were abandoned because people don’t want to bother having them spayed and neutered. I am far from wealthy but have always managed to have mine neutered and spayed.
Cats are very intelligent and very affectionate, if given a chance.
