I think that food stamps should cover

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

dog food and cat food. After all, it is FOOD and they are part of the family composition and have necessary expenses, just like children and just like children that people choose to have should not have to suffer for the misfortune of their owners. 

That is all.

Bash away.

But, only for old or disabled pets.  This made me laugh. Medicaid should cover poor dogs and cats.

Well Medicare should cover Vet visits too.

Agreed. Food is a hell of a lot cheaper than vet visits.

I agree, and they should cover getting your nails and hair did, and cable and that big screen tv you want. And that coach purse you NEED. Hell I will just send you my SO's next check flat out. I'm sure your would love that.

No. Those are luxuries. Pets you had when you could afford them and then lost your job shouldn't suffer, but I'm sure you're all for those pets being put to sleep.

Animals are completely dependent on their owner for their needs just like children are dependent on there parents.

They used to cover pet food. My aunt used to buy it with her food stamps.

That is what cash assistance is for providing you qualify.

Quoting DieMyDarling:

Um, I have had dogs for years but I disagree.

I'd hope they'd let people buy DIAPERS before they decide to allow pet food, bc they don't, ya know. Not in Atlanta, anyway.
