    Endiku, I'm so sorry you had to do that. I was almost in tears as I read it. It's a very hard thing to do. You did do the right thing. It's going to hurt for a while but without you, the kitten would have suffered more than it needed to. How's your hand?

    And going off of what Demonwolf said, I don't remember where I heard this but I like to say this quote to myself whenever I get angry at the world because of how it's run and how people choose to live it.

    "Be the change you want to see in the world."

    What a tough day for you. I'm so sorry that you had to be the one responsible enough to put the kitten out of its misery-but it was absolutely the necessary thing to do.

    I agree with the last couple of posts-I end most days depressed that we live in a world where so many "powerful" people don't care about people or animals who can't advocate for themselves. Fortunately, I've found enough small corners of the world that consistently choose the right thing over the easy thing, and that lets me sleep at night.

    Please don't give up on therapeutic riding completely- I can absolutely promise you there are barns and programs out there that do the right thing for their horses, riders, and staff. Not all do-and as you know, that's not pretty-but as you have the chance to explore other places, it's only a matter of time before a program is going to snap you up and not let you leave them because of what an asset you are to their program!!

    You all are a definite 'up' to my world. There is so much wrong going on in my city, but you have taught me that the wrong that I witness isn't how everything is. Sure, we may not all agree exactly on how to care for our animals...or for our world, but I can see and feel that you genuinely care and love. Actually, without this forum, I probably wouldn't even KNOW that some of the less obvious things going on around me were wrong, and I wouldn't know to want to get away. Without all of you I might think that what I see is just what life IS. And I might accept it. I don't want to say that because I'd like to think that I'm 'better' than that, but unfortunately we as humans learn from those who come before us, and the people who come before me where I live are terrible, terrible people in many ways.

    Regarding the questions asked:

    My hand is fine today. No signs of infection or anything, so I think I will mend quickly. Its more of a puncture than anything, so I doubt I'll even have scarring or anything. Thank you for asking.

    No, the dogs aren't owned specifically by the farm but they are owned by a 'higher up' person there and that's why they've been allowed to stay. I don't agree with it whatsoever. They had actually been banned from the farm for a while but started coming back out a few weeks ago. I can't blame the dogs though...they're dogs, and they were in a 'pack' of two. They were doing what they do. If the kitten had been allowed to stay in the tree...the dogs could not have harmed it.

    I desperately want to help change the world, even if its only for one or two people, one or two animals. And as I said earlier, there is no way I could do that without all of you and my mom (who has been SO good to me, helping me with all of this. She can't solve my problems for me, but she supports me and does what she can. It means a lot to me) to help encourage and guide me. Thank you.

    I'm so glad to hear you are ok physically today- emotionally I know you are hurting.
    I am so glad to read how supportive your mom is. I am apalled by how many parents aren't there for their children.

    How awful, you did the right thing.

    I have taken a myxomatosis rabbit to the vet before to put it down, he didn't charge me. I know there would have been no charge for a nearly dead kitten that wasn't my pet, but he is a lovely chap.
