We
don’t know what started the feud between a man (we’ll call him “George”)
and his neighbors. We only know that when George fled his home to escape the
wrath of his neighbors for a few days, he left the mother cat he had taken in as a
stray and her three 7-week-old kittens behind outdoors. 

When
he returned home the next day to gather some belongings and feed the cats, he
discovered a gruesome scene. Two of the kittens were lying dead on the ground—their heads had been smashed in.

A distraught
George called PETA for
help
, and knowing that every
minute mattered, we quickly located an animal shelter that would accept the
mother cat and her surviving kitten. As George was without a car, we found a
local PETA member who was willing to collect the cats and take them to the
animal shelter. Within hours, the mother cat, her kitten, and a third cat who
was likely the father were safe. But there was not enough evidence to press charges
for the kittens’ deaths.

While
the mother and her surviving kitten were lucky to have escaped harm, they
likely witnessed the horrific scene unfold. Even in friendly neighborhoods, the
dangers of cruel passersby, cars, diseases, and other animals are too great to
leave cats outdoors unsupervised. Let this be a lesson to
us all.
