First-World Cat Problems

Uploaded: Nov 18, 2013
No species has had to face such harsh reality as the house cat. Revered for centuries in ancient Egypt and prized aboard ships of old as the resident rodent police, they now have been demoted to merely pets.

Forced to live a life in which their humans pay attention to them only 75% of the time, they suffer with quiet dignity. In this strange new world, there is no guarantee that their food bowl will remain at full capacity at all times, and for some reason their humans will not allow them to eat at the dinner table like a civilized creature.

Finally, there is an inside look into this feline tragedy, in this Sad Cat Diary, in which cats reveal their feelings on this terrible injustice. This content may be disturbing for cats and/or devoted cat owners.
Local Journalism.
What is it worth to you?

The video is very funny, but also sad because (Downer alert), there are so many sad cats at shelters who don't have any of these funny things to complain about. They are in read danger of dying tomorrow or today. I urge everyone who loves cats, or is just willing to keep a few around, to visit the Shelters in Dublin and Martinez and adopt a couple of them. If you prefer to have your cats pre-screened by a Rescue group, go to PetSmart or PetCo in Dublin on weekends, and pick out one of the seniors whose been in Foster for awhile. They will be very appreciative of you I'm sure.

Sad! Sad! Sad! Got off my fat butt and filled the cat bowls!
Pet lover's perform a random act of kindness; save a cat today!
Recently drove to the Fresno shelter to pick up a Siamese scheduled for
the big sleep. Felt better about myself as a person.

Siamese cats are very friendly and I'm sure the one you took will appreciate you for the rest of her hopefully long life.
