Lance Strange I love my dogs but I dont see why animals that are put down shouldn’t be sold if the can be if that money is going towards helping fund Animal control. There are cost for housing these “stray” or feral animals, there are also cost to put them down and so on and I dont see why some of that cost shouldn’t be recuperated from selling a dead animal that would otherwise add additional cost to dispose of its corpse

Lance Strange There is a cost to dispose of the corpse. Even if they just throw them in a dumpster tax payers pay to have the dumpster emptied. Regardless there is still the cost to put the animal down both a labor cost and a chemical cost plus the cost to house/feed them in time before death. where does the money go?

Lance Strange Tender Mercies Pet Organizationunfortunately your right MAKING Money off selling dead cats does incentivise killing more cats, So they (Who are they?) are being paid more than it cost to Catch, House, Feed and Then Euthanize the cat? That’s the only way to MAKE a Profit.
But that wasnt even the stance you were stating here anyway. Is your issue that the cats are being turned into dog food or that animal control is going overboard killing cats and selling the product of their bloodthrist?
By the way dumpster pickup isn’t free and even if they physically drive them to the landfill gas, vehicle maintenance, and labor are not free there are always cost. Where is the money going? You say it is not going back into animal control, where is it going, who are the checks made out to?

Ronald Roy

Ronald Roy I have the same question….. who are they selling the deceased cats to? If not for research, then who? The Golden dragon oriental restaurant? I do t think so. And it’s absurd to say that selling deceased animals for research will lead to more animals being put down. Please, before you start accusing anyone, please do your research first. From what I know, any deceased cat that is not either incinerated or carried to a landfill after its death is used for research or vital training for veterinary students the same as human cadavers are used for medical research.

Lance Strange Why does it even matter who they are sold to? If money can be generated from the lifeless bodies that would otherwise be dumped into a landfill, why shouldn’t it be? I dont think it’s an ethical issue or a respect for the dead animal issue. The carcasses are headed to a frigging trash pile if they aren’t sold. I dont think it is truely a issue with being concerned they are being turned into feed because of statements like “killed animals should never be sold period” and “profit should never be made off a killed animal” and “the love of money is the root of all evil” Those statements represent an issue with killing the animal and selling them period why is that an issue? There isn’t a “profit” unless more money is RECIEVED than the cost to round up house and then kill the animal. I dont know but highly doubt anyone is paying that much for a dead cat or any animal killed by animal control (unless maybe a lion or some other exotic species are running around) but feral house cats cannot be worth alot. So again I’ll ask what is the real issue here? And also again I’ll ask where is the money going?

Anita Eason Neicy Has Transitioned

As I think about my friend, my sister in law Anita Eason Neicy I think about when the carnival came to Pinetops years ago and set up by Piggly Wiggly she left with them.

I will never forget she called me and I went to Warrenton where the carnival was set up to pick her up. She was glad to see Pinetops.

Neicy would call me from time to time and leave a message on my house phone if my wife didn’t get the call. I would say Neicy call my cell phone you know I ain’t never home.

Neicy would always ask me how my wife was doing and the children and had I heard from my daughter her niece.

Neicy would call me to see how I was doing but most of all she would say she either talked to my dad or she had called and couldn’t get him. She was always checking on my daddy especially after he had his surgeries.

Neicy told me that I would always be her brother in law and we got along well.

When I heard Monday she was in the hospital I was going to see her on Tuesday but then I heard about her condition so I chose not to.

Neicy was a caring and loving person. She loved herself some Bigum and Moms. She loved her some T.T. I remember she called me when T.T. was getting married. I told her that T.T. had called me about videoing his wedding and I went to meet with him but he didn’t show up. I was going to video and take photos for him and charge him because of my friendship with his mom. You see her friendship, calling checking on my dad and me meant a lot. Everybody don’t do that and especially someone who are struggling with their own life situations. This is why I videoed some of their family events for free because of Neicy showing her love.

She loved other family members as well because she would talk to me about them as well.

In spite of all that Neicy was going through over years, I never heard her say anything about her condition. I never heard her complain. What a little bitty strong woman she was.

Neicy will truly be missed but never forgotten.

When Somebody Transition All Hell Breaks Lose Sometimes

We have got to do better.

When someone transitions this is when you find out how close a family and sometime friends are. Let a member of the family transition and all hell will break lose sometime.

Let a family die and do not have a will and see how family members go after each other. However sometimes even with a will won’t make a difference because somebody going to still be mad.

If there is a will sometimes family will get mad because the deceased didn’t leave them what they thought they should get. Well damn that ain’t for you to decide, that was the decision the deceased made.

When there is no will family will get mad with each other as if they created the mess. The one to be mad with is the deceased if you want to be mad with anyone.

I have experienced some things dealing with folk when a family member transitions and it just make no sense how family get mad and quit speaking. You were living before this situation occurred so you will continue to live on.

Black folk including myself, it is time we get it together. We have got to do better.

It is sad that we all can’t just get along. If we can’t get along with family who we got. Yes we have friends but family.

But family!

We have got to do better.

I Can’t Take It When Folk Say To Me, I Am Sorry For The Loss Of Your Love One

We have got to learn that we didn’t come here to stay and we will be leaving one day.

We must understand that the same goes for our love ones. Cherish the times we have together and then cherish the memories.

Do good, live a good life and then when the time come it will be all good.

Treat your love ones right and if they leave this old world before you then you will be at peace. But if you miss the golden opportunity, then you will have a hard time dealing with the transition. That’s it right there, that is a good word to sum it up Transition.

If I don’t wake up in the morning, It will be well with my soul. I will not question the time I have on this earth because I had no say when I entered.

Note: I know what Webster says but I just don’t like to use that term. Just speaking for me.
