    that was one of the stories on the local news just now. the Humane Society rescued him...apparently since it rained this weekend, it helped put out the fire. which means this anmial was suffering for at least three days before it was found.

    ugh i hope whoever did this gets run over by a cement truck or something.
    yikes <-- mad face

      They are animals, ( the people who did it ) not the cat. Definitely sick.  there are so many people doing horrible things it makes you wonder what is happening to our world.

      That's marginally better than doing it to your girlfriend/wife. (As is often the case in Pakistan or some place like that).

    The people who perpetrate such things erroneously believe there are either no consequences for such actions they perpetrate, or that they are exempt from them somehow. However, having lived long enough to see how things cycle around, I believe that karma will do her job, and these types of people will suffer and pay the price of their deeds. The catch is, it's not up to us to decide when and how. And that sometimes doesn't seem fair, but in the end, I believe it balances out.

    sorry kirsten sad

    thankfully his eyes looked good (no damage there) and they had him in the shelter all snuggled up and being petted and everything. i have to wonder how these people can look at themselves in the mirror and not be repulsed.

      Hard to fathom, but I'm guessing these types of people have no remorse or repulsion for what they've done.  I can't imagine any such senario that the psychiatric community would not consider clinically significant, and diagnosable.

    A freak that deserves to be lit on fire himself and see how he likes it. neutral I'm not joking.

    Honestly, like with children, I can't believe people do what they do to defenseless, innocent creatures. Seriously, a largely sinister race we can be...

      too quick torimari - whenever I have  come across cruelty I have always recommended tying them to a large red ant nest and covering them with syrup - its a nice slow process.

    I can only guess, but the kind of person who deliberately sets fire to a cat is the kind of person the law, shrinks, and the general population should keep a very close eye on. People with such a callous disregard for life are at high risk for escalating the violence and turning it against people.

    If the cat pulls through, I will be thankful that the resilience of kitty-kind comes into play again.

      Very true, all too common among serial killers.  Hopefully, the authorities will take that into consideration when and if the person is found out.

        the law doesn't do much, couple of years ago we had some hyped up soldiers put kittens in holes with their heads sticking out and running them over with lawn mowers when they got tired of that the remainder were set on fire - what was the punishment - they were kicked out of the army and fined. My son also a soldier saidthey should have made them stay in the army and tag them for whatthey were...i agree.  Believe it or not, the public were divided- some said good on them others were disgusted but said if they say this happening they would report it but not interfere, , makes me wonder what kind of people we are breeding inthis world

      This is true, and very apt. However, as disgusting and terrible as these crimes are, I always cannot help but wonder about the mind-state and suffering of the individual capable of doing such things.

      I cannot imagine being so devoid of compassion, empathy, emotion...so empty that the immense suffering of an innocent, powerless creature could be okay. How terrible and lonely it must be. What on earth has to happen to somebody, or what defect, or what combination of the two has to happen for such unfathomable ability to cause pain? Is this someone who is more to be pitied than to be despised?

      Rest assured, even if they are, this does not in ANY WAY imply that they should not, in some way, be made to understand and take responsibility for what they have done--however, I think it's also always a good idea to take a look at the environment from which such a person springs.

      If we're pointing fingers at him, how many point back at us? Or the people around him? Or society in general?

      It's a very sad and complicated world we've got here. sad

    After working in various shelters for a lot of years, I've come to the conclusion that some people must honestly believe that animals have no feelings and/or don't have any right to be free of suffering. Three months ago I adopted a pup from the local shelter who was part of a rescue with a particularly horrendous story, and I can't help but wish I could find the people who did that to those animals and do the same to them. Many dogs and cats from that lot died very slow deaths, and the people didn't even care until there was a mention of prison, then they dumped them all at the shelter where it took WEEKS just to get the smell off of them, then weeks more trying to socialize these animals. These critters are just lucky this is a small-town shelter where we can keep them for months waiting for the right forever homes, in most places none of them would have had a chance. However, it's not my place to punish people for such acts, and at least I can rest assured that karma will bite them eventually...I just hope they don't get a hold of any more animals before then.

    As easy as it would be to hate the person who could do such a disgusting, horrendous thing, something tells me that such a soul is more to be pitied than to be despised.

    Someone capable of such callous inhumanity, violence, and abuse is also probably not capable of experiencing the joy, love, and companionship of other creatures in a meaningful way.

    A sad situation full of suffering all around.

    My prayers go out to the kitty and the person who hurt him.

      Well, if it's disgusting to you, that's peanuts. This is about animal brutality. How about if someone, supposedly there to protect people, massacre them in broad daylight, 57 in all- 27 women, the rest media men? Have you heard? Sorry but I don't want to steal attention away from this thread,I was carried away. Forgive me, please.

      tried that once - nearly  broke my hand - now I use my head - has a real clearing effect - besides these people can't be taught there is something missing inside them  - the punishment has to be final -the way I see it, you catch them, you punish them, they will find another animal totake their punishment out on - these people are real sickoes . thats my humble opinion...

    I caught my four-year-old son kicking the dog...my husband and I sat him down for a talk, and asked him if he thought that hurt the dog. He said no. Then we asked him if it would hurt if we kicked him in the ribs...again he said no, but he was also very adamant that he didn't want to try it. Maybe more people need to be discussing these things with their kids, even though I know most pet owners already do, because when they're little is about the only time you can REALLY get through to them that that animal feels everything just the way they do. As they get older, they get better at justifications or just plain, "Who cares? It's not me that's hurting."

    I look at my cats and see their distinct personalities and how much I enjoy them then think NO WAY. If anybody tried to hurt them I'd be all over them. I hope the poor little fella makes it and like another said gets spoiled rotten.

    People who do those kinds of things are truly sick individuals.

    It takes a sick, twisted mind to do such a thing! I never could understand how anyone could harm a defensless animal! Do they not realize they feel pain just as we do?

    You reap what you sew! They will pay for what they've done!

    Think about this though: If they did this, what other abominations have they inflicted that have not been discovered?

    I'm mortified! Poor little baby! I hope he or she heals soon and finds a safe home!
