    • +3

      from the reading comprehension i have learned in school, i think it's just cats and dogs, and not cats, dogs, and duece1995's rabbits.

      ymmv

        You must be a genius Rickrone!

          Oh thank you for the great complement.
          I don't consider myself a genius, but I get by.

            @Rickrone: You may need some more schooling. Firstly it’s learnt not learned, and secondly it’s compliment not complement.

      • You obviously didn't learn much.

      Taste amazing in a soup!

    This is super-specific to local councils, businesses, individuals and businesses and events on specific dates.

    Fair enough if someone already owns a pet and falls on hard times. Unfortunately this will probably be for a lot of irresponsible people who are unable to support themselves without government assistance and selfishly decided to bring a pet into their home, which they also can't afford to provide proper care for.

      Wow. Yuck. So poor people on the almost lowest rate OECD welfare economic liberalism eugenics starvation rations who can't find work or can't work in this economy and are often isolated, vulnerable to mental illness, needing extra security, and wanting this most basic and ancient of human companions, are scum in your books. I don't think it's them, mate.

      • Holy shit. Did I just read a 'life sentence'? It felt that long…

  • +8

    Won't somebody please think of the pets?!

    Edit: Looks like we don't have too many fans of (old-school) The Simpsons here.

    • +1

      Was that reverend lovejoy's wife? Big fan here.

          Sex Cauldron?! I thought they closed that place down

      No, it's just not a very funny use of the meme.

  • +2

    woof

    Poor cats and dogs

  • "For Cats & Dogs" remove these words from the title to, offend, delight, amuse, bemuse, concern or annoy our OB readers!!

    • +7

      I really give up with some people on this site and I don't put it down to Covid fatigue !

    Keep balls on your dogs, they look great! Not like we have stray dogs running around any more

    • Didn't know that the desexing procedure offered under this scheme involves actual/physical removal of the said organs

      • +1

        For cats at least, desexing means they take the balls out, ours was incredibly concerned the first few times he went for a lick and found an empty coin purse

        No idea what they do with them afterwards though, and at this point I'm afraid to ask

  • +9

    I understand desexing cats and dogs but why Victorians?

    • +2

      I say "Why not?"

    • +1

      After watching some of those mob protests, I can think of a few who could use a bit of neutering!

      • -1

        Yes, the rest of Victorians had their cohones voluntarily terminated long time ago.

  • +1

    I got a couple of dog mates

  • +4

    so the cats get de-sexed, and Vulnerable Victorians get dogs? Do we get to pick the dog, or is it assigned? This would have been great at the start for those without company!

  • Great idea and awesome idea by the Victorian Govt. Think of all the money they can save by not housing/euthanising unwanted pets in the future.
    Hopefully NSW does this.
