Maryanne now looking for a cat

By johnboy - 26 July 2011 17

In the wake of Maryanne’s search for a dog this morning Henry82 sent her an email and readers will no doubt be interested:

Hi Maryanne,

I read your advertisment for a cheap dog. Not sure if you realise but dogs aren’t cheap, they require food, vetenary visits, registration, grooming, as well as a truckload of time. Dogs can also live well over 15 years, so it is a long term committment. As you decribe yourself as broke, i would strongly suggest a plant, which are house trained, and won’t bite at your cables. To get a house trained dog for $10 is unrealistic, even the RSPCA dogs are $300, which are chipped/desexed etc.

regards

Henry

Hi Henry,

Yeah I got a call from the RSPCA. I removed the ad!! That is a bit rude. I’m capable of looking after a living thing. I have plants, that are good in drought conditions that I water every two days, two cactuses and a aloe vera plant. Actually RSPCA suggested a cat, which I will get, maybe. I was probably over thinking companion as the only friend in my real life who ever was nice to me is in jail for a couple of months so wanted to replace him until he got out.

Regards,

Maryanne

P.S. I know animals have to be fed and walked daily. I’m not broke I’m on a centrelink pension and I’m looking for work to get more money anyway.

Which shows a high level of proactivity on the part of the RSPCA.

What’s Your opinion?

Was I the only one reminded of “The ducks in the bathroom are not mine”?

Whilst I feel that Maryanne’s pet wishes are somewhat misplaced, some morons on here are being unnecessarily aggressive. However, here’s some excellent lateral thinking:

Perhaps she should go and volunteer at the RSPCA and then she can talk to, cuddle and walk all the pets she likes. (Whilst cleaning cages and pens and generally doing whatever they require).

She’ll get plently of animal contact, it’ll look good for her job hunting and who knows, she may just end up improving her life.

Why don’t you babysit a pet for a friend – maybe over a weekend or short period while they are away? This might give you a feel for the ‘real thing’… Good luck.

I feel sorry for her.I know a pet can be a friend – but the lack of $$ worries me. What happens when times get tough?

Let the lady have her cat. You bunch of country town busy bodies.

Sometimes people need to mind their own business, and get on with their own boring lives.

And someone with a name like Henry shouldn’t be telling anyone what to do..

I think the plant protection people should go over there and rescue her plants. Especially the aloe vera!

I do feel sorry for her but I think maybe the RSPCA should’ve suggested pet mice instead.

Or Maybe a Pet Rock?

“I was probably over thinking companion as the only friend in my real life who ever was nice to me is in jail for a couple of months so wanted to replace him until he got out.”

So whats going to happen to the dog/cat after a couple of months, when her friend gets out of jail? This woman should not be allowed to own an animal

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Hope she sticks to looking after house plants.

This is a joke right??? If not, get a job and do something useful… Typical, my taxes at work !!!!
