Default Soft Paws

Or people who just leave tehir pets outside the whole time and just feed
it. Makes me wonder why they even have a pet.

That is quite common here. People will feed roaming animals, treat
them if they need medical care, but they will not take the animal in,
they don't consider it their animal.

That doesn't bug me so much. What bugs me is stuff like this guy who was
buying a chain for his dog. I mentioned that it is better for the dog to
fence the dog than chain it, and he was like, "I don't give a **** how the
dog feels, I just want to stop him escaping." And apparently he just left
his dog outside the whole time and didn't do much with it, I suppose it
wast here as some sort of burglarly prevention (I wish people like this
would just buy a house alarm).

Or the view of, "it's just a cat" or "it's just a dog" and I]'m not going
through all that trouble/money for it (for pets that didn't just start
hanging out at their house).
