Humans As Fair Weather Friends

The news last night had a story about the shelters overflowing with dogs and cats. Apparently, people who bought, or perhaps adopted, pets during the pandemic are now dumping them at the shelters. I suspect the buyers are the ones who are doing this more than the adopters. Now that the people are going out more and the pandemic is waning, they are finding their recent responsibility to another living creature too inconvenient. If the'd adopted a child, would they take him/her back from whence they came? People who treat pets they've adopted as a disposable accessory are lower than low. These animals are not only completely dependant on them, they have likely developed an attachment to their humans -- something these humans apparently are not capable of.
