I didnt have the strenght to read. Only yesterday I did read about such things done in Warszawa during the war, in the Warszawa uprising (ie severely burning people, but letting them live - with a slow extremely painful death as result as the local hospital didnt have any medicines). The lesson is the victim should be put to sleep immediately. No point in letting the animal (or the slowly dying human) suffer more.

Of course, strays - and sometimes also homecats - do have the risks of being burned alive everywhere in the world. surely not only in China. This is not unusal at all!!! *weep if you want*

Gods wrath over the illdoers!

Althought in China they seems to do it more openly, burning? and other painful killing of animals, feks dogs and cats. No law against cruelty to animals??

At first,I'd like to thank all the friends who has signed on the webpage.

There are quite a number of stray cats in China (millions, may be). There are also a substantial portion of Chinese residents have not awared of the importance and necessarity of protecting stray cats (and dogs). That's the challenge we are facing. That's the reason we are calling for the signatures to support the legislation progress.

The good news is: Phoneix is getting better and better under the care of many volunteers and vet doctors in the past three weeks. He can "miao", eat, play, and do many things like a normal cat. The vets and volunteers are planing a skin-implantation in the next copule months to complete the treatment to the terrible burn-hurt he is suffering.


Another good news is: most of Chinese people are animal lovers too. Some of them have already acted to save those stray cats. Here is an example: a senior lady, Ding, who lives in Beijing, the captial of China, adpoted more than 300 stray cats in her home.



With respect, we call her Grandma Ding, the senior lady in middle in the above picture. She is retired and has only about $200 (USD) monthly income. She has spent most of her income on helping those stray cats. However, it is still not enough. After being reported by local newspapers, many animal lovers have donate to her. (around $5000 (USD) so far, which can cover the expenses of food, liter, and medical care for her stray cats for 8 months.)

I'd like to say: Grandma Ding is not the only one who helps and saves stray cats in China. However, it is still the most important thing to enact and enforce the animal welfare legislation in China, as soon as possible. Please support us by signing on the webpage, and also forwarding it to your friends.

Thanks.

I see at least three of the four cats I do see are white and quite handsome. Is it a coincidence they a family, or is it a common chinese "race"? - the chinese cat - a coming pedigree cat?!

I am not sure. A vet doctor volunteered to do spay and/or neuter surgeries for all stray cats adpoted by Grandma Ding. In addition, white long-haired cats are very popular in China.

Those pictures are really upsetting. The cat has such a sweet face. I hope he can return to having as normal life as possible and doesn't lose all faith in the human race.

Seriously, what is wrong with people?

I often think that if I ever won the lottery and became rich..I would adopt every animal and just love them to bits...I hate it when cruel people get their hands on innocent little buddies.

Grrrr

Something is perhaps already done yes. Could be.

They seems not to have a law against cruelty to animals in China, but it isnt said the average chinese is cruel to animals.

One striking example.

There is a recent film on Internet with a chinese woman first petting a kitten on a bridge, but after a while she slowly tramples the kitten to death...

I did read in my newspaper the other day there was a big onrage in thorought China about this film. The woman get tracked down - and was fired from her job!

No punishment by the law, but she get severely punished by the people of China.


Gods wrath over all such illdoers!

I cried when I saw those pics.....poor sweet baby!
Sending the kitty all my love
post #26 of 28
that poor baby i hope he gets better he is still adorable i hope he finds a gret home
post #27 of 28
Looks like such a fighter, though!! I imagine he'll come out of this with a "scarred veteran" charm all his own...
post #28 of 28
I'm definitely going to pray for Phoenix and I'm sending him strong recovery vibes. I signed the petition. They know who did it but since there aren't any laws against cruelty, the monster feels free to continue blatantly torturing cats. May he burn in hell forever!
