OMG! RIP poor kitty...

That is just awful. How can "people" be so heartless, so void of a soul????

I renamed the thread, I know there are a lot of people who are traumatized just reading thread names like that. I hope you understand.

It is just sick what people will do.
Here is a link to the story of Adam, a kitten set on fire in a trap, by some teenage girls who saw him and thought it was funny to torture an animal.

This story is two years old, I hope Adam is still here, he fought like a trouper and did well, I could not find any recent anything on him

"I'm at a loss for words," Soden said. "It was a trusting, loving animal. What could be in them to harm an animal like that?"

Ray John, CEO of Haven Humane Society, is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
OMG!!!!!! That poor kitty was someone's pet!
I'm glad a reward is being offered, and I just hope the police catch the morons that did this quickly!!!!!

R.I.P. kitty

That is just horrible!! I hope they catch these awful people! I also wish I could set those jerks on fire! Let them suffer the way they made that poor, helpless kitty suffer. I am glad that there were people who actually helped this cat, but at the same time sad for the poor kitty. Im also enraged at the fact that there are people out there who are so heartless and have no soul, that they can bring harm to a helpless unsuspecting animal like that. I could never imagine hurting an animal on purpose. How anyone could find something like that funny just makes me even more mad! I feel so bad for that kitties family. It is things like this, fear that my cats could die because of someone else, that makes me support indoor only homes for cats. I don't look down on people who allow their cats outside.. But I always try to educate those I know who have outdoor cats on the dangers of it. I live in a busy area, so any cat left out can be killed just by traffic. Sry for getting OT. I hope those monsters are found and that there is justice for this cat and its family.

R.I.P. Poor Kitty, play happily over the Bridge. Your family will miss you.

The reward has been upped to $6,000 and the local law enforcement says they are nearing an arrest!

I hope they throw the book at the people who did this.

Really, what is the deal with all these cases of cat abuse? I don't get why some people just hate cats.... Is it my impression, or cases of abuse with cats are much more common than against dogs? This sickens me!

I think kids like this are budding sociopaths. I don't think it has anything to do with their dislike of cats, they just want to torture a living thing. These are the same kids that bully other kids and make their life a living hell. I know people that don't care for cats but would never do something like that. They simply don't have cats. I think you see this more with cats than with dogs simply because they are available. There aren't very many toy dogs running around loose for them to do this to. It would have to be a toy dog, they wouldn't try it with a large dog because he might defend himself and hurt one of them.

Sadly, you are right....our puritanical culture has demonized cats for centuries. many people worry about the diseases that can be caught from cats, which only shows their ignorance - dogs are much more immune to diseases that are lethal to cats and humans (such as bubonic plague; giardia; strep). Hence, dogs can eat rotten meat & excrement, which would make cats & humans ill.
There's a smear campaign against cats: "Dogs have masters, cats have slaves": Dogs are loyal; cats are aloof: "Dog is man's best friend" (never mind that dogs kill more humans than cougars, bears & wolves combined!).
How many times have we read headlines "Cat causes house fire!" when it's "suspected" that the cats have knocked over an unattended candle (as if the cats can strike a match & light a candle themselves).
And in "homophobic" areas, cats are often considered to be the pet of choice for only lonely,crazy "cat ladies" and "gay guys".
To me, it boils down to ignorance and fear....

Thanks for posting the update. You beat me to it! All of our household did a little happy dance that they had caught some of the kids. I hope all of them rat out the rest and they all get punished fully. It was clearly premeditated. These kids need some mental help too.
