"The Yarmouth SPCA is concerned about the whereabouts of a visually impaired kitten that was taken from the shelter without completion of proper adoption papers on the afternoon of Wednesday, Jan. 20."
This worries me - because in 2008 - a dog was stolen from the Yarmouth SPCA - I wrote about it in a blog post back then. Luckily the dog was found and returned - but it's just weird that this has happened twice at one shelter.
I don't know if that end of the province just has a weird relationship with their animals in general - back in 2006 some members of the town council tried to ban dogs from the downtown core altogether because young men were bringing their "scary looking dogs downtown" and dogs really shouldn't be out in public anyway. That was just foolish what they were trying to do, and I'm glad it never actually happened.
Maybe people down in that end of the province also think they shouldn't have to fill out any kind of paperwork in order to adopt animals - they should just be able to go in and pick them up and leave. If that's what they think - they should just go for a drive and get their pets at the Cape Breton SPCA. That's what they do there. Pay your money - and you're good to go.
I hope the kitten turns up okay.
