      Only two were "on purpose" and by "on purpose" I mean one was from a shelter and another a friend found living under a restaurant.

      The other three were volunteers, animals who showed up at the house and after we couldn't find their owners, we kept them.

      I am one of the lucky ones, my household has enough disposable income that we are able to keep five animals in food and vet care. But I don't think this entitles me to look down on the original owners of my animals, I feel compassion for them, not scorn.

      Scorn is bad karma, if nothing else.

      Truly the destruction of the earth only results from the destitution of its inhabitants, and its inhabitants become destitute only when rulers concern themselves with amassing wealth. Caliph Ali, 7th century
