Norwegian girl Ingrid Wolff works on a voluntary basis in a shelter for cats and considers her work one of the best in a modern, stable society. But any medal has a reverse side and an editorial Lemurov.net I was interested in how Ingrid described her not without humor and with characteristic examples. If you decide to become a volunteer in Norway and work with animals, keep this in mind.
The first thing you have to learn is that your wards are completely selfish. They don’t care about your interests!
They constantly interfere with doing work, just for fun
At the same time, they shamelessly tease you, every now and then they show their tongue
Sometimes everything goes beautifully and easily and you think — oh, a great chance to take a working photo, update your resume!
You pick up the camera and it starts…
You try, you run, you fuss, and at this time they are just sleeping!
They sleep without hind legs, do not react to anything at all
They just seem friendly, for all important procedures you have to use force
Using things for other purposes is the norm in a cat shelter
Forcing cats to comply with the schedule, treatment or nutrition is also unrealistic — they run away and do what they want
And with all that, they remain so cute that they just can’t really swear with them.
