I got my feelings hurt today. Just as Francis has had hers hurt.
When I took the poor little kitten in to get neutered, the fat black, white and brown women ignored me because I am thinner than them. For more than 30 minutes.
They were focused on an aggressive Mexican dog and not the sweet orange feral kitten I had in a trap.
When I went to pick him up, I had to suffer a white woman glaring at me because she had brought in twenty kittens, and there was a man who acknowledged that she was righteous.
I left the place with confidence, despite the affront to my dignity, because by that time they knew who I am and adjusted their behavior accordingly.
I am with you Francis!!!! Fighting the good fight!!!!!!!!
