Clark Kent [Jan. 11th, 2012|05:37 pm]

For those of you following the Clark Kent story - he's doing well in a foster home after a blood transfusion and surgery to remove metal from his stomach.

City Kitties reported today that his former "owner" didn't show up in court today and was convicted, in abstentia, of animal cruelty and was sentenced to the maximum penalty: she's not allowed to own another animal for 90 days.

Seems a bit anemic to me. But Clark's doing well and full of love.

Ninety DAYS? They don't hand out fines? Biting my knuckles here. Very glad Clark is doing well though and I hope the former owner never gets near another pet.

If you want to add some iron to that anemic sentencing, here's a suggestion. If you know the person's address, then distribute flyers to her neighbors. Explain the charges, the verdict, and ask them-- wholly in the spirit of community involvement-- to keep an eye out to ensure that she doesn't violate the terms of the sentence. If she acquires a pet, they can call the cops.

At the very least, they'll all be aware that she hurts animals.

I have more than a few words about that light sentence. But I'll spare everyone's "ears".

One (of many questions, though) How in the world are they going to monitor her to make sure she doesn't obtain a pet?

That's the maximum? Whilst in an ideal world there would be no animal cruelty (and therefore no need for sentencing), it makes me feel a bit better to know that we do actually impose fines, and even in some cases prison sentences for animal cruelty.

Uh-huh. Same here in the UK. And you can be banned for *life* from owning an animal.

Yes. I was shocked at 90 days, knowing that there are much tougher options here in the UK.

She's not allowed to own another animal for 90 days.

Wow. Gosh, I'm sure she learned her lesson.

She's also liable for all of Clark Kent's vet bills, which should cause her some annoyance at least.

90 days is more than anemic and weak, it's pathetic and a light slap on the wrist. >:( I'm glad Clark is doing well.

Too lenient: I would have had her banned for life!
But I am so glad the little guy is doing well and has lots of love to make up for his ordeal.
Thanks for the update.

Clark Kent

Wonderful to hear & see. I have been following on both FB & Twitter. I think this is one of those circumstances where you really have to focus on the positive: Clark Kent is recovering and he's safe in a loving home. The animal cruelty issue in general is so frustrating for so many of us and when a paltry sentence is handed down by a court of law for such actions it does sting a bit. I know when I read the story yesterday I just kept repeating the question in my head "90 days with no animals...That's it??" So needless to say it is up to the community and those who care to at the very least monitor people like this and educate those around them as to what they have done in the past and once again... Focus on the fact that due to kind and caring individuals, Clark Kent was saved. Happy ending. TY

Because of your involvement with City Kitties, I'm aware of such a wonderful organization. My boyfriend Ed and I are thinking about adopting from them for a companion for our young cat Winky. He's a rough houser and we think maybe he gets lonely and bored when we aren't here. Also we can't necessarily dedicate "playtime" every day with him, even though we'd love to. When we were up at my mom's house, we noticed he was much more docile when he had other kitties to play with. So thanks for all your postings about City Kitties!
