Food Stamps For Your Kitty Cat?

File this one under “Weird”.

I recently had an article sent to me by my friend, and I have been stunned ever since.

Did you know that there is a Food Stamp Program for PETS?

You can read an article about it HERE.

What are your thoughts?

    My first thought was, I’m glad this was in New York and not here. After reading in detail, I realized that this is paid through private donations, not federal funds. As long as that’s true, it really shouldn’t matter what they fund. I’m glad the reporter checked.

    Since the program is privately funded, “The Pet Food Stamps organization, which is funded by donations from corporations and individuals and not the federal government…” I don’t have a problem with it. Though I am not a pet owner, nor pet lover, some individuals are. Temporary help is sometimes needed.

    Seems like a great idea–afterall, why should pets suffer due to their person’s poor circumstances and/or lack of planning?
