Exponential Problems: Life and Death


One female cat and her offspring can produce
420,000 cats in seven years.
This one wasn't thriving so I brought him inside for milk. But cow milk isn't good for dogs and cats.
One female dog and her offspring can produce
67,000 dogs in six years.

San Antonio euthanasizes between 80 and 120 animals A DAY

These puppies are ready to find a home. One creative way of giving away puppies is to have the person give you a receipt for a pre-paid neuter or spay operation. At least they paid for the operation and if they elect to be irresponsible then some one else will get a free operation. I don't know what I'm going to do. We're in Texas so I suppose I'll ask for their word that they will take these dogs in to fix them later in life.
Mama is totally done with her puppies. As am I.
He begs for food and then gives it to the mother.
Some town in Mexico bulldozes the dog carcasses to a power plant that converts the methane their rotting bodies produce to energy. I don't think that's a tenable or acceptable solution. It was already too late when this mother showed up but I swear this is her last litter. Although these puppies are good looking and one has his father's Siberian Husky white eye they are not special enough to breed.

I love this abandoned sign for some reason. There is no pizza store but I like to think it was good pizza.

No more chasing Roadrunners for this Wily Coyote
Please God let these puppies have a full life without the insanity of more puppies. 120 euthanized dogs a day? That's 44,000 a year. No more. They are running wild on me like Kindergarteners.
