Well we hadd her for about 20 years and she died of old age. Now I have Nala and she was dumped at our house in October. I have always loved black cats and I never understood why people think they are evil.
OMG, I would've have gotten myself in some serious legal trouble if I had caught someone doing this (hint: Pennyslvania has the death penalty). Pathetic isn't even the word for those b*stards. Such "real" men, huh? They have to prove their masculinity by torturing something small and helpless. Wow. I'm impressed. Make me just wanna hop into bed with such "studs". (Sorry to be crude, but I feel strongly about "people" [using the term loosely here] who do this stuff.) Or, as my Dad-In-Law likes to say, "I'd call him a pr**k, but a pr**k is part of a man, and he's no man." (DIL also once used a bit of frontier justice to stop a local guy, who was deliberately running over cats with his car, and laughing about it. The neighbors were too scared to confront this jerk, who was known to be violent in other ways, and a drunk. He actually was bragging about the cats, and hurting dogs. DIL heard about it, and paid him a little visit, shotgun in hand, and told him in no uncertain terms what would happen, if he did it again. He didn't do it again! Love my DIL for this, and many other reasons.)
Kudos to you for being so brave as to stand up for the cats' lives, and fpor adopting them. You're hero in my eyes...
