This guy needs a much stiffer punishment than a $400 fine. I hope the kitten finds a wonderful home.

I will be glad when animal cruelty carries the jail time that it needs, for those yokels who think its such a jolly to be cruel to a cat

The girlfriend has been arrested too now, for not stopping him from stuffing the cat in there. If permanent damage has been done to the cat (or the worst happens for the kitty, though Shadow's in good shape, it says) they face felony, not misdemeanor charges. http://journalstar.com/news/local/do...0566645171.txt

Just another reason why stupid white trash shouldn't be allowed to breed.

Many years ago, I adopted a cat that was removed from a similar situation. The cat's name was actually "Hyper" and her owner used to put her in a carrier, cover it with a towel and blow pot smoke inside. This was done to her repeatedly (like nightly) for a few years. She was about 5 years old when I adopted her.

I researched the situation when I adopted her and found out that pot doesn't have the same affects on cats as it has on humans. In fact, catnip affects the part of a cat's brain that pot affects in humans. So when you give you cat the nip, you are actually giving them the equivalent of a pot high.

So unless there was other trauma to the cat by putting it into a small box, then the cat should be OK. Doesn't take away from the fact that the owners were abusing the cat and should be punished accordingly.

Geez....I have kids in my Kindergarten class who could make better choices than some of the abusers we have been hearing of recently.

Sometimes I am ashamed to share a species with certain other human beings...

I'm very glad to hear that pot doesn't affect cats neurologically. But yes, these people deserve to be stuffed somewhere really small and smoky for all the days of their lives. Idiots.

I saw a video news report on the subject, and Smokey seems OK. She's going up for adoption. And she is a GORGEOUS little tortie kitten.

There is no shortage of idiots in our society and unfortunately our courts don't know how or don't care to deal with them.

If you want to see the little beauty... http://m.apnews.com/ap/db_8516/conte...tguid=w1pOI29l It's the news story (so you have to look at the *thing* that did this to her, on three separate occasions!), but you can turn down the sound.

Or here she is:

People are sick. That's why we love helping cats.

She is such a doll! I'm so glad she's OK!
