    WHAT THE F**K??? PLEASE keep us posted on the search for the f**king morons responsible for this! Do NOT just let it slip through the cracks because it is a cat. Cats are sentient beings and need us to defend them and take care of them. I would welcome the chance to do whatever I can to make sure the cruel and heartless monstet are punished as severely as possible

      I agree completely! I am not especially a cat lover by any means (more of a dog person), but what sick f…er would do something like this! The poor baby! I just can’t imagine in my wildest dreams what kind of life a person like this lives that would make them think that this is OK. A bullet to their head would be just fine with me.

      Shiloh’s MomA bit drastic perhaps, but I am not terribly opposedĀ To the world, you may be just one person, but to one kitty, you can be the world. Please adopt and/or donate to your local cat rescue!

    The people responsible for this should go to jail because they painted a kittens face and broke it’s tail in several ways and this break’s my heart because I love cats and kittens.
