It wasn't animal cruelty I was trying to point out, it was just plain stupidity and people being uneducated pet owners. Common sense is definitely not common when it comes to owning pets..

Rant: Altzheimer's disease/dementia is probably one of the cruelest diseases known to man. My grandmother is suffereing from this and its the most painful thing to watch this happening. And I know its only going to get worse :(

I am so sorry about your grandmother. I sat with a neighbor for 4-5 hours a week about 5 years ago, so her husband could run errands or play golf. It's heartbreaking. That was back when she was still able to carry on a decent conversation. She told me she didn't want to end up just sitting in a chair and staring into space and that she'd rather be dead. She's now in a nursing home, in a wheelchair and has to wear a diaper because she's lost control of her bodily functions. I never knew her before she got sick but she had a wonderful sense of humor and was probably a barrel of fun in her younger days.

My grandfather is pretty much at his wit's end at this point.... he is working with my parents and his other children to get home healthcare to come in everyday.

Awww :( My grandma has the same thing, we can usually only visit for about 40 mins at a time because its just the same conversation over and over again...its sad to watch..She can barely talk now either, because she's had a few strokes and just slurs all the time.

You can contact the Alzheimer's Association and they can help you find resources that can help your grandfather out.

I know, but videos with animal cruelty are forbidden in the forum rules.

It's the thought that counts, but the actions that speak. Don't worry about it, mistakes happen.
