  1. WTF is wrong with people??? Most of us want our furbabies to be with us for as long as possible and we savor each and every day our precious treasures are with us……

    This so called family who gave up Gaga has reserved places in Hell waiting where they will burn forever for their cruelty…… Do they really think there is a long line of potential adopters for an elderly medically fragile furbaby???

    They should have contacted the many groups that offer financial assistance for vet bills………

    I hope Frosted Faces or Leave No Paws Behind or another rescue group can save Gaga. She deserves to be treated as a beloved family member for however long a time she has left and not die in the shelter alone, afraid and (worst of all) unloved…….
