46. It gets me
two ways makes me really sad and very very pissed off at animal abusers.I cope the same way, I hold my kitties tight.And tell them I love 'em,and I hit mute because what that commecial says I know it is true that's why it hurts,and I wish I could do more but I can't. However I do when I encounter it I do fight people who hurt animals.I have caught asshole psychopathic teens a couple of times hurting animals and believe me they felt pain and shame and fear by time I was done.

And I was glad I got there in time the animals were not dead.

One animal I helped was a box turtle. His shell was cracked the assholes were hitting him with big rocks.After I let the little ass hats have it,I took the turtle home, picked the shards of shell out of his back muscles with tweezers ,cleaned the wound up and put bandages on it and a temporary 'shell' over the bandages made of a piece of curved hard plastic I melted and bent to fit him and I taped it all up with duct tape,to keep it dry and clean. I made him a terrarium kinda thing to stay in with a small kiddie pool,I put in my balcony. I put soil, plants,rocks,a little water dish, and it was really nice .I fed him mushrooms,fruit,leafy greens,meal worms..The turtle healed in around a month and a half. I released him into the woods and he kept coming back .I would find him sitting on the porch..So I moved him out farther in the woods and stayed with him awhile, reducing it each time and distracting him with a treat. Soon he didn't come back again.Sometimes I'd see him in the woods when I was out there farting around for I had painted a blue star on his back to identify him.
