Thanks for the update. Poor little guy about broke my heart.
Thanks for the update. Eating and grooming are very good signs.
If he survives, will you post another pic of him, please? Thank you for everything you do for City Kitties.
i will for sure keep everyone updated.
Wonderful--fingers crossed for the little mite.
Thanks so, so much for the update, man. Go, li'l cat--Chip, Clark, Spud, whoever you may be. There are humans out here in the world who won't turn away when you need them most.
Thanks for the update Kyle. I hope he continues to come on in leaps and bounds. It's amazing what a bit of love and care can do for an animal.
Thank goodness for that. I hope his (in)human owners will be prosecuted.
Every time I read one of these stories, I feel my blood pressure rise and I get slightly dizzy with rage. I took in one abused street cat. I just need more room here for another.
REposted. Have many English and European friends who think the owners should be prosecuted for cruelty to animals. The UK has laws that allow this, what is the situation in the US?
It varies state by state. Pennsylvania has animal cruelty laws. Philadelphia, unfortunately, is so inundated with other crimes that things have to be really, really bad before the District Attorney's office will prosecute. Of the handful of cases I saw in my eight years as a public defender there, almost all involved dog fighting.
That is sad, but at least it should be enough to prevent them from re-claiming the poor creature should they be insensitive enough to try.
Oh those owners should be prosecuted! This baby looks like my Sebastian. If I could get him out to California I'd take him in a heart beat. What a cutie. Any clue as to what is wrong with him? My Bash has Chronic Renal Failure but I'm doing all I can to treat him.
Bless his sweet heart, that poor baby. Just waking up in Europe to read about this from your LJ and I'm incandescent with rage and sadness.
Warm thoughts from across the pond to the little guy xxx
Fingers crossed and thumbs held. Even if this cutie doesn't make it, at least he's warm and fed and knows people love him.
Thanks for the update. Your previous post was both heartbreaking and enraging. Please keep us posted about his progress!
