OT: Get your dogs and cats fixed

I know it's a little off-topic, but I just read this riotously funny — yet kind of sad — article on the responsibility of cat ownership. Cat overbreeding is a serious subject, but the writer does an excellent job of poking fun at the way some unenlightened cat owners try to duck responsibility.

Obviously the horse world isn't exactly the same, since we (usually) don't sterilize mares, but there are still plenty of people with this lax view of their responsibilities as horse owners. It's a sad fact that many people choose not to geld their horses, either because they think it raises their coolness factor to have a stallion, or because they have mistakenly decided that what the horse world really needs is more backyard-bred horses.

Do you know people like this, who either don't care or try to pass the responsibility onto someone else's shoulders — whether it be dogs, cats, or horses?
