After posting about the cruelty done to the poor woofie yesterday, I realized that animal cruelty is a much bigger problem than any of us spoiled cats realize.
Today I am going to review two articles that are best not read by the faint of heart. The first is titled, "Kitten Killer Gets Probation" and the second is, "Alford Plea in Kitten Drowning".
In Canada, a man admitted that he broke the leg of a four month old kitten, and the next day suffocated it. The man broke the defenseless kittens leg by kicking it. The next day, the kitten was walking around on the shaky leg, and foaming at the mouth. When the kitten saw his attacker he instinctively hissed at the man and bit him three times (the same as any of us would do). It was at this point that the man grabbed the kitten, suffocated him, and then buried him in the woods. The poor kitten's owners filed a lawsuit against the man, but he was only given 12 months probation.
In Kentucky we have another sad story in which a man who is posing as an educated person, a horticulture Professor, drowned a kitten. He claims that he mistook it for a raccoon.
Bill Fountain, the professor, had a raccoon trap set up in his backyard. The kitten, who was only 5 months old, was trapped. Fountain reached towards the cage and the tiny, baby kitten "grabbed or bit" him, so he tossed it into a water drum and drowned him. He is not sure if the kitten grabbed or bit him. He also does not know the difference between a raccoon and a kitten. My Bosslady would not want this man teaching her human children (if she had any).
Please go to this Experience Project website and play their trivia game. For every question you answer correctly, they will donate food to abandoned (and formerly abused) animals. You can choose whether you would like to play to feed cats or dogs, the option is located on the sidebar on the left side of the questions. Please feed the cats, we are very far behind the woofies! If you are not so good with the trivia then you may go to the Animal Rescue Group website and simply click the purple button to feed the animals.
PS- I promise a happy post tomorrow!
