3. Procedures

##snip##

"My husband and I adopted him in 2009. In order to do so, we had to get a background check, pay an application fee, fill out this form, and then wait to be approved. Obviously, we were, but the animal rescue has rejected numerous unfit people."

##snip##

Glad Nixon the cat got adopted to a responsible owner.

5. Where I live, "adopting" a cat or dog is far simpler. But you do have yearly licensing fees

and vet bills etc. Not to mention training, feeding and grooming.

on edit: I have never heard of anyone adopting a gun, but people do "buy" animals.

10. THIS ^^^^ - I have 2 cats, and one would definitely figure it out. And the other one would

just lay there watching him with a smile on his face.

9. It wasn't easy to adopt my cat.

I've never bought a gun but I had all sorts of paperwork and had to tell them what vet we were going to and promise all sorts of stuff. They said they sometimes visit people's homes first but I knew the person who was handling the adoption and she knew my home.

12. About the same:

 

Look on craigslist for local kitten listings. Drive to owners house. Pay them for cat.
Spend the rest of your life in fear that your cat will try to eat you if you sleep too still.

Look on armslist for local gun listing. Drive to owners house. Pay them for gun.
Spend the rest of your life in fear that your own gun will be taken from you and shoot you.

I don't really see the difference other that the gun doesn't piss in the dining room corner and claw the shit out my couch cushions.

13. Though buying a cat is fairly straightforward

and significantly simpler than buying a gun.

They even have cat shows. Though you can't buy cats at them.
