Authorities identify youngsters who threw concrete block at kitten

In Invercargill, New Zealand, police announced they have identified several youngsters who threw a concrete block several times at a defenseless kitten. The despicable deed was captured on video where the suspects are between 11 and 16-years-old.

According to the New Zealand Herald, the children are currently being interviewed by the Invercargill Youth Services and will be referred to the appropriate authorities for action in this case. Authorities state they were sickened by the cruelty of the video. The video had been posted online by the organization Paw Justice. 

“We made the very hard call to post a horrific video of a kitten being stoned to death. We did that because we know sometimes the hardest truths are the only ones that get results.

You cannot un-see what you have seen, and we cannot undo what has been done to that little kitten. Animal abuse is an ugly, messy reality and we believe the fight must be made public. That is where YOU come in.

And sometimes, the fight get results.”

In the video, one girl can be heard saying:

“Put it on the concrete or else it won’t f***ing die.”

At least two people could be heard laughing in the background. Within an hour of the video having been posted, one teen was placed under arrest. It is not known if the kitten was killed, but the SPCA has since removed three other kittens from the home of one of the “offenders.”

Does the violence against those who cannot defend themselves ever end? Be the voice for those who cannot speak. These teens were apprehended because people care.

Drowning puppy saved by unexpected hero

Touching story behind Los Angeles cop saving cat from fire

The photo of a Los Angeles policeman saving a cat, after rescuing it from the recent wildfires, has gone viral. And if you’re asking why the picture has touched the hearts of so many – it’s simply because most of the men and women in police departments across the United States who protect our rights and safety, also have no qualms when those who cannot speak need help also.

Not only were the police in Los Angeles helping people to evacuate the devastating fires and forcing them to flee their homes losing everything they own, saving their pets were not an option. Our pets are members of our family.

And then came the photo and the brief explanation as an officer ran down the street with a fluffy kitty cradled in his arms:

“For some it might just be a cat. But to others it’s a friend, a loved one, a companion,” the department tweeted. “The LAPD has a motto – “To protect and to Serve” and our officers have been displaying that in many different says during the #Creek Fire & #SkirballFire.”

The tweet has been shared thousands of times.

The cat has been reunited with his family.

In a random act of kindness, a young man stopped on Highway 1 in southern California earlier this week as the Thomas Fire spread to nearby wooded areas when it crossed the road. A man, who has refused to be identified, chased a small wild rabbit finally able to capture it and save it from the deadly flames. The brave rescue was caught on video by a news reporter.

“Dude! You just restored my faith in humanity. May you be forever blessed,” someone wrote on Facebook. Read the heartwarming story here and watch the video.

Copy cat animal cruelty? Man Snapchats himself kicking cat

In Fort Meyers, Florida, a Snapchat video of a man abusing a cat by kicking it, has emerged upsetting animal lovers everywhere. The disturbing video, which appears to be a copy cat crime of another high profile animal cruelty case in California, begins with a man luring a friendly and affectionate cat over to him. Moments later, the man kicks the cat and posted the deed on social media.

According to Fox News, the video was immediately turned over to both police and the Gulf Coast Humane Society, who were shocked as to why anyone would want to arbitrarily inflict such cruelty on an innocent animal and subsequently post the abusive treatment on social media.

“You lured the cat in and dropped it like it was a football,” stated Jennifer Galloway, the executive director of the Gulf Coast Humane Society.

This kind of animal abuse often leaves the cat very apprehensive of human touch.

“We see it all the time with animals that are head shy,” Jennifer continued. “They flinch when you come near them. Some of them never recover from these types of things.”

And to make the evil deed even worse, the man videoing the detestable act, could be heard laughing.

“I think that’s the beginning of a very sick individual. Kicking a sweet innocent cat that came up to him. What’s the next thing he’s going to do,” stated Jennifer.

The person who forwarded the video states the person responsible for the cruelty is a student at Lehigh Acres Senior High School.

Just days ago, a juvenile suspected of being the punk that was videoed on Snapchat hurling a defensive cat onto an Ontario, California street has been arrested. According to the Ontario Police Department news release, the unidentified teen had been spotted by police and tried to run away when he was tackled by officers and taken into custody in Upland.

That investigation began on Saturday in Fontana, California,  when a nine-second video posted to social networks Snapchat and Twitter went viral showing the teen throwing a cat into the street as if it were a football. The video showed the boy holding a cat in his arms for a moment and then launching the animal at least 20 yards into the air. The  frightened cat could be heard meowing and whining as it hit the street.

The cat, named Spots, is currently under the care of a South California veterinarian hospital and suffers from a broken leg. Her other leg has also been injured and internal injuries are suspected. Meanwhile, Spots is resting comfortably and will remain at the hospital while she recuperates.

The teen has been booked into the San Bernardino County Jail on suspicion of felony animal cruelty.

There have been no updates on the cat kicked in Florida nor the suspect identified or arrested as of this time.

Kitten euthanized after rescued from backyard steel trap

It had to have been an excruciatingly painful experience for a stray little kitten in Covina, California on Thanksgiving morning when her paw was caught in a steel trap. Sadly the innocent little one was euthanized because of the extent of her injuries.

The heartbreaking situation began when a concerned neighbor called authorities after hearing the agonizing cries of a kitten in pain in the 5000 block of Conlon Street. When authorities arrived, the neighbor reported she had been hearing the tiny meows for days and felt compelled to call police for a welfare check for the ailing little one. She directed authorities to a home nearby. When authorities knocked on the door, no one was home. Still hearing the kitten’s cries, deputies climbed over the fence.

That’s when they found the kitten in extreme distress- one of its paws had been caught in an old rusted animal trap. The men used screwdrivers to lift the metal clamps enough to free the little one’s paw; deputies comforted her until officers from Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control arrived at the home to take the kitten for emergency treatment.

“The kitten was evaluated by our medical staff,” stated Don Barre, spokeswoman for the County of LA Department of Animal Care and Control. “The prognosis was bad. We don’t want any animals to continue suffering.”

Not only was the kitten’s leg fractured, but she was in severe pain, was emaciated and refused to eat or drink. It is not known if the kitten had an owner.

It appears the trap was set in the homeowner’s backyard to protect a koi fish pond. At this time it is unknown if the traps are legal. The case is under investigation.

Rest in peace tiny kitten. You had your whole life to live. We are sorry humans let you down.

Ire at disturbing video of woman biting kitten’s tail and throwing it against wall

A disturbing video showing a woman biting a kitten’s tail and then throwing the defenseless animal against the wall numerous times has led to the abuser’s arrest after animal activists tracked down the woman’s residence.  The woman from Moscow, identified as Svetlana Daraselia, posted the video on the Russian social network known as VK. According to news media RT, Daraselia claimed she had been high on drugs and alcohol when she tortured her four-month-old kitten named Thomas.

The video went viral and soon began to circulate on social media platforms around the world. Viewers reacted with a wave of indignation calling for justice and finding the kitten being subjected to the abuse. Particularly egregious was when the little kitten continued to cry out in pain and fear, and the woman just screamed at him.

A friend of Daraselia arranged to go to her home and removed the kitten. And why did the woman inflict such horror on a defenseless kitten? According to the woman, the kitten had torn up her expensive curtains that had been a gift from a friend in the United States. She claimed the curtains cost $25,000.

Animal activists have labeled Daraselia as a violent and aggressive woman. The veterinarian examining Thomas, diagnosed the kitten with a concussion and multiple hematomas stating his entire belly was one huge bruise. He will remain in the veterinarian hospital for at least a week and then be made available for adoption.

As to Daraselia, an investigation for animal cruelty is currently underway. If found guilty of animal cruelty, she faces six months in jail or up to a year of community service.

Cat broke all of his teeth trying to free his paw from hunter’s snare trap

A frightened black and white male cat broke all of his teeth trying desperately to free his paw from a snare trap after it unmercifully snapped down leaving the feline in excruciating pain. On Monday, the Doghouse Sanctuary in Banbridge, County Down, Northern Ireland received a call to rescue the cat dubbed Twinkles; he was rushed  for emergency veterinary treatment at Iveagh Veterinary Clinic.

It is not known if Twinkle will need to have his leg amputated. According to the Sun, the animal welfare organization is insisting that all traps be banned, even though ones like this are still legal.

“These kinds of traps, in all forms, are cruel, inhumane and ineffective,” the group stated. “They are often set illegally anyway, under the current regulations, and to expect the lowlifes who set them to abide by the new rules is pathetic. Eighty per cent of the animals caught in them are not the target animal and that is true in this case. It is as effective as putting the animal you want to hurting a crowd of other animals, closing your eyes and shooting.”

According to law, the traps are intended to capture wild animals that have become pests, however they are meant to be checked every 24 hours, and the captive animals released from the torturous pain and humanely destroyed.

Although Twinkle is not out of danger yet and veterinarians continue to take a “wait and see” how his paw heals as to whether it will have to be amputated, an update on the shelter’s Facebook page late Tuesday afternoon seemed more optimistic:

“Twinkle had a comfortable night with pain relief ,he is going to be sedated to have his bandages changed and wound cleaned .he is showing some interest in food but still on drip early days to see if all is ok with his leg x.”

Get well soon Twinkle.

Authorities search for disgusting jerk who posted video of him peeing on stray kitten

If you think you have heard every disgusting, sicko act of outrageous stupidity and animal cruelty, this just beats them all!  A jerk from Seoul, Korea is currently under investigation by the Yeongdeungpo Police Station for urinating on a stray kitten and then beating the defenseless little one with a stick.

According to an online post, some gross male actually uploaded a video of himself abusing the stray kitten by urinating on it. After the despicable act of pure cruelty, the man stomps on the weak kitten with his feet. The shocking video was reported to the animal rights organization CARE, who quickly offered a reward of $2,616 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person abusing the kitten as seen in the video. Within an hour, the identity of a suspect had been spread throughout the Internet world of social media.

Executive director of CARE, Im Young Ki tried to explain the heartbreaking situation:

“Stray cats are abused often because they don’t have owners. It’s devastating. In order to prevent such animal cruelty, proper education, as well as more strict laws are required.”

A 28-year-old man with the surname of Lee is currently under investigation, however he has not been arrested.

Allkpop, a popular news site, has had many concerned readers asking about the kitten. Netizen Marie Music posted the kitten’s update:

“…The cat is a lot better now, but he had a surgery for a long time and his life was critical but he made it… he lost his one eye and his jaw was totally crushed. Also he had many other major injuries but he made it at least. Now he is  very much better. The police couldn’t find this monster. That man who the police investigated wasn’t the one … he is still outside free. Now that cat is looking for his new home … his previous family abandoned him cause of moving. What the hell? A rescuer payed a lot for the cat’s surgery and care, but she cannot keep him. ” (translated)

Unlikely friendship: Blind dog and seeing eye cat need loving home

In Fulton County, Georgia an unlikely friendship reminds us all how our differences don’t necessarily matter in the much larger scheme of life when picking our friends, mentors and companions. And so true for Kim the cat and her friend Edward the Yorkshire terrier. When Kim moves too far away from Edward, the adorable pup will bark – as if reminding his friend – “Hey where are you going without me?”

And although Kim is partially blind, while Edward is completely blind, Kim doesn’t go anywhere without her favorite pooch. The two had been rescued from a high kill shelter after having been found abandoned and alone after Hurricane Irma.

Both Kim and Edward are currently guests of Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, and besides being “besties” – they are each others’ lifeline explained Krysta Cannon for the rescue.

“I think by now, many of our followers have at least caught a glimpse of Edward and Kim – the blind senior Yorkie and his equally aged seeing eye cat. On the surface the story is so cute, their friendship heartwarming, but there is a dark side, too. From the looks of them, their lives haven’t been pretty. They ended up in a rural GA shelter. One that is extremely overcrowded and was without power for several days due to the storms. That is A LOT for any animal to go through.”

Kim has been fighting off both an eye and upper respiratory infection. Poor Edward has it even worse. The seniors are very old (14) and it takes extra coaxing to help Edward eat – which sadly has not being going well. He needs ongoing medical and care to help him feel better. These two deserved better than what they had, but now their lives are slowly being turned around.

Kim and Edward are in their twilight years; it is not known how long they have, but for now they love cuddling up to each other and feeling the love both have to offer between them. They both love to be touched and deserve any future days they have to be filled with love and happiness.
