How can people be cruel to something so innocent looking?

It was and they thought he was doing good but died by the next day.

If he had any lethal injuries, they would have shown up in a proper exam by a vet. They knew he'd been stoned, xrays all around.
Cracks me up about sensitive animal rescue people. They probably put more time and effort into giving the cat a name than treating him for his injuries. It's not like this was a bird or exotic that takes some talent, this was a cat. Veterinary science has cats down pat...

Hmmm...why is there an animal cruelty epidemic among the youth? I thought this was in Oz until I reread it and found it was here in the US.

One solution may be to equate animal abuse with weakness and homosexuality like in these fake smoking ads:

I really hate reading about stuff like this. Wish they could catch the ones who did it and hurt them the same. They wouldn't do it again.

There are children dying by the hundreds each day in third world countries from war, starvation, malnutrition and lack of medical care.......and you are worried about 1 kitty??!!
There is money being taken from your pockets by a f**ked up economy, pensions and 401K's going down the tubes, big corporations getting bailed out for being poor money managers.....and you are worried about a kitten? I guess some have their priorities....

So, why care about anyone or anything, huh? I'd never value an animal's life over a human's but how about some common damn decency and compassion? I can't imagine anything in the world more painful than to be set on fire and there are few things as harmless or helpless as a kitten. The sick bastard that did this is just practicing. They will eventually move on to a person, so in my opionion finding him/her SHOULD be a big priority!

No, worried isn't the word - horrified is a more accurate term - for a kitten who was stoned and burned to death. It's the principal around the whole 'hey let's set it on fire' culture. Sure, it may not be the most horrendous tragedy of the day, but it is a very sad event, and we have chosen to air our displeasure about it. It is arrogant on to come on and remind us that since there is greater misfortune happening in this world, this kitten deserves no pity.

Yes, I am worried about one kitty.

Can you do anything about children in third world countries RIGHT NOW?

How these buttwipes treat animals now is a good inidcation of what they are going to do to humans in the future.

It isn't simply about one kitty. It's about how cruel someone could be. Anyone who could do that do an animal got serious psychological probs.

He who hates cats will come back as mice in the next life.

It's been proven ad nauseam that people who do these kinds of things to animals rarely stop with animals. They get a special thrill from doing things to people or animals who can't defend themselves. They turn into rapists and murderers. Sick.

Sorry, sweetie. not biting off your head. Hate the rescue types. All concerned with cute and cuddly, but when it comes to proper care they fall short. They routinely put down cats and dogs here that they confiscate for fleas. Then beg for money for the good work they do. A scam.
Just saying that if they knew he was stoned, they should have properly and thoroughly examined him, and if there were signs of something serious he should have had 24 hour observation and best treatment, or just put him down right away. Yelling at THEM, lol.
I know you do birds, and if a bird has even a slight head trauma they can look fine and just drop dead because of the nature of their bones and vascular tissue in their brains. Snakes don't usually even look siuck until just before they die, and they often die in a normal pose like they were just crawling along and died. Not so with cats, a good vet would probably have detected something.
