    WTF is wrong with this POS??? Why would someone not try to rehome their furbabies? There ARE options if one can’t take their furbabies to their new home: family, friends, “all breed” rescue groups, “pure breed” rescue groups, no kill shelters…… there is NO reason or excuse as to why abandoning furbabies is an “acceptable option”…….

    Lock this disgusting POS up and lose the keys!!! He has earned himself a reserved space in the hottest part of Hell to burn forever for his cruelty…….
