    Last night around midnight I heard a car door slam outside as I looked out I saw the red lights of a car disappearing. And there in the middle of my driveway stood a cat all forlorn...
    Turns out someone dropped off this fully pregnant little kitty here at my farm. The poor baby is cowering in the corner of the porch totally terrified. She still won't eat or drink. She looks really too young to be pregnant but I can see the babies wiggling in her belly.

    I just hate heartless jerks that have no respect for life.

      I agree - the only good thing is that they had the sense to drop the poor animal off at your farm and not in some back alleyway....

      That sucks! What a horrid thing to do to a living creature. Poor kitty, at least she has the fortune of having you to look after her and give her the chance for care while having the babies. sad

      It's a dreadful situation indeed. Poor little animal.
      Fortunately that could never happen to a human, othewise we'd be really hysterical about it...

      Awww {{{HUGS}}} I know how you feel. Someone recently did just about the same to us, the only difference is that the adorable little bag of skin and bones they left us is not pregnant (yet)--have to get her fixed.

      As hard as it is...I try to remember to tell myself that such people are probably more to be pitied than despised. What kind of defect does one have to have--or what kind of trauma does one have to have been through--that makes one unable to sympathize with such an innocent, poor, and hurting creature? I do not know; I cannot fathom it...but it must be horrible to walk like a zombie upon the earth without a heart. sad

    Aw, hopefully you can make friends and find the babies new homes. We get it here too unfortunately. Not so much now that my grandma's house isn't empty anymore but still the occasional one will wander in from being dropped off.

    I hope your new border does ok with her litter and you gain a new mouser out of it.

    That new mother cat is very lucky that she was literally dropped in front of your house.  I'm wondering if it's somebody who might have known you and that you would be the kind person who would look after her.

    that is sad, hope she is doing well. sad

    that's how we got one of our dogs years ago when we lived outside of the city ... someone dumped a female dog, possibly pregnant, we found her on our property after she had had her pups. she was scared to death of brooms..sad  we gave her a good home.

    Seems she was dropped off at your place for a reason, Zsuzsy, and very lucky indeed.
    If there is something good to come of this, I think that's it.
    Thanks for being one of the caring ones.

    Both my dogs were abandoned by somebody else, and we are lucky to have them. It's hard to be angry at those who abandoned them, since we would be missing out on a lot if they hadn't.

    This is one aspect of the universal spay/neuter movement that people really don't get.

      It really hurts to think people will do this to animals thank god she found you -
      I had a young kitten dropped off in the creek behind me - heard it crying and some days later realised it had a spinal complaint and was paralised in the back legs - I had him for four years he was one hell of a cat called his Wabbit told everyone his mother was a catfish and his father was a rabbit - took some people a little while to figure that one out - so yeap there are some heartless so and so's out there - you can't tell me they didn't know Wabbit was paralized - So take heart - it just goes to show someone knows you have a big one

    I hope you will name her Karma and can keep her - its true that "gift" animals are sometimes truly wonderful pets and they know how lucky they are and pay you back a thousand fold!

    Zsuzsy it seems God was watching out for the cat because he appointed an Angel to the cat , you ! As for people like that it is sad that we have grown to such a desensitized level. But if the cat was going to be abandoned I am glad it wound up with you. I like Cats.

    This type of animal abandonment absolutely enrages me. It is just as easy to take an animal to a local shelter. You must drive there anyway, why not drive to a shelter and leave it?

    1. Flightkeeper profile image71
      Flightkeeperposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Well, a shelter is no guarantee that the poor cat is going to be taken care of.  Don't they kill them if they can't find a home for them, especially since there are so many abandoned animals.

    2. Aya Katz profile image82
      Aya Katzposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Mothers used to leave babies in baskets at the doorsteps of people that they judged might make a good parent. There were orphanages where they could have dropped off the baby, instead, but they chose not to, because despite their abandonment, they hoped the child would have a good life. Institutions are scary places where bad stuff happens.

      If a cat or dog is dropped off at a shelter, there are going to be some very harsh consequences for that animal. It might be put to death, if nobody wants it. Even if is not put to death, it more than likely will be castrated or have a full hysterectomy.

      These are things to consider, before dropping an animal off at a shelter.

    These barbaric 'people' didn't want to be bothered, so they chose to dump that poor animal on another.  One of my dogs was dumped years ago into my backyard-a gorgeous malamute/wolf mix-and I was floored at the development, to say the least.
    We kept him; luckily we were able.  I hope this does not put way too much stress on you Zsuzsy, it can be, particularly a pregnant cat.  You've been the victim as well as the animal.

    Thanks everyone, it's just too sad. Looks like those people even took her collar off. Little Mama (is what I call her) is a very prissy little tabby with enormous eyes. It looks to me that she ate and drank, which is good. The poor little girl is welcome to stay in the barn...If I'm feeding 6 cats already what's one more (one for now). She is very skittish and scarred still. She'll find out soon enough that she's got nothing to worry about here.

      Zsuzsy, you're a woman after my own heart.  I can't imagine the mindset it takes to dump an animal like that, either.  I will never in a million years understand it.  It's funny, but animals tend to find "people like us", I think.  I read how you're feeding all those cats.  Or, perhaps it's because we don't turn a blind eye.  I have 5 now that I've rescued or that have been strategically dumped.  Bless you!

    Cats that are dropped off in farm country have little chance of survival unless it turns out to be one of the very lucky ones. They are usually eaten by coyotes, shot by hunters or attacked by other cats who don't like newcomers. It may freeze to death or succumb to disease or starvation.
    Animals left at a shelter have the best chance of ending up in a caring home. If they must be put down, it's done in a humane fashion.
    The people who work at shelters are usually among the most loving of us in contrast to the "droppers".

      Zsuzsy Beeposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I agree Will. The shelters are a better idea then just dropping these defence-less little creatures of any where. In the freezing cold without food and shelter they will die a hash drawn out death.

    If ever the people who do these kinds of things to any animals should go through the same as they have done, let them stay out in the cold, see how they like it and pay a Lion to chew their arse off!

      My dream of judgement day is when these animal abusers show up and see their judge has the face of a cat or dog they tormented. " Say you're sorry, see if I care, and don't try to go for not guilty, because I was there."

    Just an update... Little Mama let me pick her up this afternoon. I was able to carry her to the barn and introduce her to the gang out there. She's now curled up in the small room off the barn on a blanket next to Shamous the two year old grey tomcat and Annie another drop-off who's been here for almost three years now. She looks as if she needs a bit of meat on her bones but I can fix that easy. She will get her own milky-egg-meat dish tomorrow morning for breakfast and for dinner until after her babies are born. I'll keep you guys updated.

      I am looking forward to hear. we have a lot of that going on in the world. Here, where I live, people are building shelters for feral cats who will not be caught to shelter them from the cold snaps we have had. I know this is a case of drop off, but that as you know, is where feral cats come from. jerks that drop off their pregnant pets.
