    I am heartbroken for this precious little treasure. How can anyone be so cruel to a defenseless furbaby……. there are options for rehoming an unwanted furbaby…….

    The idea that an individual would think throwing a helpless furbaby onto a busy roadway is an “acceptable action” terrifies me. Who’s next for their terrible treatment? Cruelty to defenseless animals, children and elderly people is how serial killers “practice”…… this horrible individual should be found and locked up forever!!!

    They have earned themselves a reserved spot in the hottest part of Hell to burn forever for their cruelty.

    Precious little treasure, your life mattered and I hope you get justice for the cruelty and terror that you suffered. I can’t begin to imagine the fear and pain you suffered. I know that you are absolutely in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.
