Dog Saves Kittens — 5 Comments

  1. There is one very distressing detail in this story that makes me know that there is true evil in this world– not people who are misguided, not people making honest mistakes, not people who if we educated them can become better people– but real monsters. The kittens were thrown out onto a road to be killed in their food bag. They were put into a bag from which should come their sustenance, their life, and it was to be their coffin. This type of twisted cruelty is abhorrent.

    • Horribly true comment. There is something really evil about a lot of people. Sometimes I don’t believe evil exists. I give people the benefit of the doubt but in the end I have come around to thinking like you Ruth. Some people are irredeemably bad. Sadly only people can be like that.

  2. The photograph of Scamp the dog with his adopted kitten family is something rare and very touching to responsible pet owners and animal lovers. Abandoning or deliberately killing of cats is common in every culture and Continent and i can give an Indian version of the brutal method of “Cat Killing”. In some coastal villages of South India unwanted cats are put into a sack and thrown into the river, pond or stream for drowning.Villagers are usually superstitious and scared of beating a cat to death as are done to dogs and hence would pick up a troublesome cat or kittens, put them or the cat in a sack and throw the sack in water.This was a commonly used method to get rid of unwanted kittens and cats in coastal Indian villages decades ago.I hope the same is abolished in the 21st century with a greater awareness of animal cruelty and eradication of superstitious beliefs.

    • Thanks for that interesting information, Rudolph. Drowning is probably one of the more common ways to kill cats, worldwide. I know there are the odd stories from the UK of cats being drowned. In fact lots of animals are killed by drowning. It is a very convenient way to do it. It seems so careless, casual and cruel. How many millions of kittens have lived lives lasting a few days? Does it have to be like that?

  3. God bless those wonderful dogs! It does the heart good to hear such things still go on in our ever darkening world. I hesitated about talking about this, but:

    We recently had two serial-cat-killers in two separate areas of our large Metropolitan area. The one on the east side was caught and was a young guy. The other case is still open. The point is there is proof that people who kill animals sometimes move on to kill humans. I wonder if those people who put those poor cats in the road were in the early stages of that type of behavior. Stephen King (as Richard Bachman) wrote about a kid who was turning into a serial killer. He started with animals and than moved to homeless people. My point is that the sick person(s) who did this may actually of gotten a thrill out of the killing. Who knows where they will go next!
