I am sitting here watching “Cats and Dogs:The Revenge of Kitty Galore” with my daughter while also trolling Facebook.  While doing so I came across a slideshow entitled; “21 Hilarious Photos Of Cats Being Shamed For Their Crimes”.

While I have to admit that cat-or dog or hamster, for that matter-shaming is funny, there was one photo I didn’t find funny.  It showed a black cat and the sign said; “I went out and partied all night and now I am pregnant”.

It is not the cat who should be ashamed in that situation.  It is the owners.  They should be ashamed for not getting the cat fixed.  Most likely, those kittens will end up at the shelter.  The excuse will be that they couldn’t find homes for them.  Maybe they will find homes through the shelter, maybe not.  It could all have been avoided if their cat had simply been fixed.

Also, am I the only one who realizes that this version of “Cats and Dogs” has an anti-animal testing message? Just saying.
