Cat abuse, in one form or another, is fairly widespread. It doesn’t have to be the kind of abuse that hits the headlines, such as air gun shootings or cruelty of the worse kind: Worst Animal Abuse Case Ever! (opens in a new tab/window) – where the children and dogs where also treated cruelly which tells us a bit about the link between animal and human abuse.

It can be day to day neglect or the occasional beating by an irresponsible owner. The owner could be depressed or ill and therefore irritable and passes that on through neglect and violence. Or the person could just be plain bad having been abused himself, perhaps. It is sadly part of the human condition.

In many parts of the world cat abuse is a crime. I have compiled some pages on Cats and the Law, which covers the laws on animal abuse in a number of countries. The world has a long way to go before it can be considered truly civilized in respect of our relations with animals.

The United States is becoming better at penalizing cat abuse. The laws are generally effective and similar to those in Europe. I am not sure how effectively enforced they are, however. There is probably room for improvement in enforcement. There is a disparity within the states. According to the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) the five American states with the best animal welfare laws are: California, Illinois, Maine, Michigan, Oregon. The worst five are: Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Dakota. The rest are in middle ground. (see Cat Cruelty Laws USA). In the UK there is a low conviction rate.

Here is a map courtesy ALDF, showing the best and worst US States for animal legislation and which is reproduced with their permission:

Best Five1. Illinois, 2. Maine, 3. Michigan, 4. Oregon, 5. California
Worst Five46. Iowa, 47. Mississippi, 48. Idaho, 49. North Dakota, 50. Kentucky

There is one aspect of North American life that surprises people in Europe and which might be described as legalised cat abuse – the declawing of cats. This is treated as a crime in the UK. It is mainstream veterinary work in North America. How strange is that?!

Cat abuse and general animal abuse is a precursor to possible abuse of a violent kind against people especially family members. This makes it very important to us as well as to the cats and animals. In the USA counseling orders can be made as abusers are often mentally disturbed people. Sadly, it is often too late to alter behavior in my opinion.

Cat abuse takes the form of neglect or violence. Specifically it might be that the cat was weaned too early causing maternal deprivation, or social isolation, a failure to experience proper learning experiences, physical restraint (e.g. caged), verbal or physical punishment (e.g.yelling or beating), improper care and maintenance and deliberate, reckless or careless infliction of chronic stress or pain.

When this occurs against a kitten it may well cause permanent psychological damage as would be the case if it happened to a young person. These cats may never bounce back and integrate into human society; the world into which the domestic cat must integrate if it is to survive. Abused adult cats can be rehabilitated. They will be nervous of people, withdraw and become depressed. They can become overly defensive, hissing at almost any approach (my stray cat did this at he outset, for example). What to do?

From personal experience, patience is probably the number one requirement. I made a post on taming wild feral cats which is along the same lines. A damaged cat should be dealt with gently and we should make him/her feel needed. A quiet voice is an obvious starting point. The cat should be given plenty of time to become used to the environment and us. They use smell extensively so they should be given time to get to know our smell and for them to deposit theirs on surrounding objects and us by rubbing against them.

The surroundings should be safe and secure and the cat should be able to achieve a positive result, e.g. asking and a receiving food. Toys, teases and catnip can create a friendly and fun environment. Sometimes teases can be frightening to a frightened cat, however.

Dr. Jon of PetPlace advocates what he calls “a reverse dominance” program, which the cat becomes the boss and gets his way. This builds confidence and makes the cat more relaxed. In fact cat clicker training can be employed when appropriate.

The rest is really a patient non-intrusive approach to gently build a bond and a friendly pleasant environment, where the cat feels comfortable. Once the basics are in place therapy to acclimatize him/her to feel comfortable with the things that caused discomfort in the first place, can be introduced. Rehabilitating cats that have suffered cat abuse is all about patience and time. See How to Tell Cat Abuse.

Cat abuse can be entirely legal and authorized in another way – animal testing for cosmetic companies etc.

Mar 17, 2012CFA breeders, show judges, and show sponsors commiting CRIMES against their own cats NEW
by: CFA Cattery ReviewsCFA Cat Breeders Are “Wolves In Sheeps Clothing”
All the CFA registered cat breeders listed on this site are all “wolves in sheeps clothing.”The CFA cat breeders utilize their mouth to sell these adorable kittens. The CFA cat breeders “appear” to the buyers, as wonderful, caring, professional & even attentive cat breeders.But, as soon as the CFA cat breeder gets the deposit or money in their hands, a transformation takes place beyond the buyers understanding.Once the money changes hands the CFA cat breeder knows they “got them” so to speak. And the CFA cat breeder is now in control of the financial transaction all the way to the bank.When the buyer would call the CFA cat breeder to find out the details or has questions, the CFA cat breeder is no where to be found. The CFA cat breeder does not call back or even email back the buyer as a courtesy of doing business. Only then does the buyer’s gets to see what the real CFA cat breeder’s demeanor is all about.

The CFA cat breeder’s listed on this site are: reprehensible, abominable, sly, untrustworthy, backstabers, troubled, arrogant, grossly wicked, defiant, selfish, nasty, hungry, combative, unsightly cunning, minipulative, deceiving, liars, thieves & double talkers. The motive is all about $money & greed, to make a kitten or cat sale.

by: Anonymous No one gives a damn about the starving children. Kids annoy the shit out of me. Always doing stupid shit and getting themselves kidnapped so that other people have to waste time and money rescuing them. Why the hell do you people even care about that shit? Just as you would be wasting your time and money on a cat for taking care of it, wasting your time and money on a useless kid is just plain stupid. I’d like to take a Austrian Pfeifer-Zeliska .600 Nitro Express Magnum to a couple in my neighborhood[/sarcasm] We all know that humans are the only creatures that deserve to really be protected by the law even if some have the intellect of even less than a turkey. After all, sociopath>animals any day as long as they’re human right?[/sarcasm]It’s absurd that people think that any human life is worth more than an animal’s. Yeah. I’d really rather I save Rod Ferrell’s life than that of a cat’s.For the record, a person can save more than just one life. You can adopt an animal or two and still donate to feed the poverty stricken people out there or adopt a child. But, if you people really care so much then stop sitting in front of the computer screen and go out and do something about it. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, participate in the Make-A-Wish foundation, do community service, but take some action. Go out and be a secret santa and give needy people money like Larry Stewart. When you go eat out, tip more than 30%. Make a difference in somebody’s life for the better.If you would argue for people over animals and don’t try your very best to take your own advice then who are you to expect that kind of action from another. It applies to the other side too though.

Aug 23, 2010Debra Mitchell of TechnoCats Cattery
by: Stop Inhumane Cat Breeding Part 4
I asked Melanie Lowry why dont you just call up the animal control and tell them about the situation without giving any names? She said, “she could not do this.”
WHY? Because if Melanie told the authorities about her mentally ill friend, her mentally ill friend Debbie would call the animal control on Melanie. That was what Melanie told me.
Because Melanie has over 30 + cats in a small shack.
You see Melanie Lowry runs a kitten mill, she always has to have kittens all the time inorder to pay for the rent & monthly living conditions!
It was in the newspapers I think the Press Enterprise.
They should have arrested Melanie Lowry also because she “KNEW” all along about all the kittys dieing and being neglected and did not do one thing to help those poor kittys at all.
Melanie Lowry knew about the abuse before, during and after her best friend Debra Mitchell was even arrested and serving a jail sentence for the feline abuse of her kittys.
Melanie Lowry was a first hand witness to all of the neglect, abuse and sickness & death, of all of Debra Mitchell’s catsMelanie Lowry of Lollimops himalyans are best friends with Debra Mitchell of Techno cats
Those kittys were in this neglected condition for a very long time all hushed up by Melanie Lowry of Lollimops himalayans so Melanie Lowry could protect her feline kitten mill empire.All those kittys that had to be put to sleep all because Melanie Lowry of Lollimops Cattery in Escondido, California kept her mouth shut for fear the authorities [animal control] would be on your case with all her felines.But you know what, her friend did eventually did call the animal control agency on her.
Because Melanie emailed me telling me, “someone called the animal control on her”, and told me, “the animal control did not do anything to me, and I passed their inspection!,” And Melanie Lowry said it like she was really proud of passing their inspection.That was her mentally ill friend Debbie Mitchell who did that.

Debbie Mitchell the mentally ill cat breeder was going down the tubes so she wanted to drag Melanie Lowry with her also.
All this information was told me directly from & by Melanie Lowry of Lollimop Cattery in Escondido, Ca.
That is how I came upon this horrible story to begin with. The information listed here is not verbatim, but very close to it.

Aug 23, 2010Debra Mitchell of TechnoCats Cattery
by: Stop Inhumane Cat Breeding Part 3
It goes something like this
Melanie Lowry is best friends with a person named Debra Mitchell.
Melanie Lowry of Lollimop & Reidy Creek Catterys has been friends with Debra Mitchell for many years now.
They use to hang out and go into the town of Escondido, Ca in Debra Mitchell’s expensive car.
Debra Mitchell is well to do, that was told to me by Melanie Lowry herself.
Melanaie Lowry also told me, “that her best friend Debra Mitchell is mentally ill, because of how she was treating her cats.”
Melanie told me how when they went into town one night, it reminded her when they were younger.
When the girls use to hang out on the street corners and the boys were there. Playing loud music from Debra’s car and remembering those olden days when they were both younger.Melanie Lowry’s best friend Debra Mitchell is presently serving a 30 day jail sentence of being convicted of animal cruelty, and abuse and neglect against her own Technocats cattery.
Debra Mitchell had persians, himalayans and I think exotics short hairs.
Melanie Lowry told me when we spoke on the phone many, many times, “how mentally ill her best friend is”. Melanie Lowry always called her mentally ill.Melanie Lowry told me directly, “that she is also guilty of staying QUIET [turned a blind eye] about the abuse, neglect and cruelty that she knew was going on for a very long time about Debra Mitchell cats and did not do one thing to stop and help those cats”.
I asked Melanie Lowry, “why did you not do anything to help those cats?”. She told me, “she did not want to get involved because she was afraid that her best friend Debra Mitchell would call the Animal Control on her”.
And how could Melanie Lowry live if her cats were taken away.
After all Melanie Lowry does make a living off those poor creatures.Melanie Lowry did tell me, “she did take in a few of Debra Mitchell cats because Debra Mitchell actually forced them on her”.
Then I said to Melanie Lowry, “how can you take care of her neglected cats and also take care of your cats correctly?”
She said, “she could not”.
So then Melanie Lowry told me, “she was gonna give back the kittys Debra Mitchell forced on her because she was not up to this, and she was getting worn out, for caring for her very own kittys”. 

Aug 23, 2010Debra Mitchell of TechnoCats Cattery
by: Stop Inhumane Cat Breeding Part 2
She was breeding for a feature that made it even harder for these sick cats to get air to their tiny bodies.
The worst thing we learned about Mitchell as we went along was her ambivalence regarding the animals and their care.
She fought us throughout the case challenging our findings on the care she was giving (or not giving) to her animals.
She did not hesitate to sign off all of the kittens for euthanasia; she did not care about their welfare at all.
Her interest in the animals was strictly revenue, and if she was not going to get them back to sell, she would just as soon nobody get them.
We had rescue groups lined up to take them and nurse them back to health, but she would not release them and sadly, many died because they were too sick and needed intensive, intensive round the clock care.
Many of the cats and kittens that had ringworm took three months to completely get rid of.
It was one of the worst cases of neglect I had seen involving cats.
Thankfully the judge in the criminal case thought so too (we still have to find him and thank him immensely). As John said, she is currently serving 90 days in jail, which is an appropriate sentence.
She is now banned from breeding and showing through the CFA (Cat Fancier’s Association) with this conviction, and is not even allowed around a show environment for 7 years.
The info.about the CFA came from the regional rep who was following the case. The birds stayed with Debra MitchellMelanie Lowry of Lollimops Cattery AKA Annie Westlake of Catinallity Cattery best friend released from custody!

Debra Mitchell released from jail!
What Malanie Lowry of Lollimops Cattery AKA Annie Westlake of Catinallity Cattery who owns the Lollimop cattery did not tell you, the “public” is she is very best friends with Debra Mitchell who owned the cattery named “TechnoCats” in Escondido, Ca., a CFA registered cattery.
That was a very sad & horrible story.

Aug 23, 2010Debra Mitchell of TechnoCats Horrendous Abuse
by: Stop Inhumane Cat Breeding Part 1
Synopsis written by Lt. Mary Gagliardo Escondido, Ca Animal Control
The case involved a breeder named Debra Mitchell of TechnoCat Persians who severely neglected her cats.
We were first called to a residence that Mitchell was supposed to be looking after while the owners were out of the country.
It was an extremely hot day, and there were approximately 20 sick cats and kittens in cages in the garage living in filthy conditions.The drinking water for the animals was foul and murky; the litter boxes were overflowing with diarrhea and fecal matter; some had no room in their cage and had to sit right next to the litter box.
The cats were panting so we took them on exigent circumstances.
Mitchell retained counsel and they waived their right to an administrative hearing agreeing to comply with certain conditions and restrictions to get the cats back.
Mitchell relinquished some of the cats to us that day; however we learned she had another residence where she kept over 30 cats.
[ Melanie Lowry of Lollimops Cattery was at this residence and saw the conditions of the house and the dieing, sick, neglected & abused cats & did not do one thing to help any of those cats or kittens.
Melanie Lowry just walked away as if it never happened
It was located right across the street from Melanie Lowry own residence at 942 Stanley Avenue, Escondido, Ca
Melanie Lowry was guilty during the fact & after the fact of feline abuse, death, abuse, neglect of her best friend Debra Mitchell cattery of Techno cattery.] [Red text written by CACB.INFO]A condition of her original agreement was that she needed to allow Animal Control inside her other residence to inspect the 30 cats.
She would not, so a Search Warrant was obtained and we went in.Her house had no flooring; it was plywood sub-flooring.
We soon found out that was because all of the cats and kittens in there had severe ringworm.
Sick cats and kittens were crawling across the floor, diarrhea all over them; cats and kittens close to death with a severe upper respiratory condition; emaciated kittens, kittens with nursing mothers being maintained in small cages similar to the first residence, filthy water with feces and litter in it, so much so that the water was gray and murky; overflowing litter boxes with fecal matter and diarrhea; underweight, pitiful kittens being bred so that their heads were so large, their faces so flat that their nostrils were almost non-existent.

To the person who commented on Jan 20, have not read the map. Please spend more time listening and looking and less time being unnecessarily abusive.Some people have said, “lets be kind to people and to hell with cats”. How stupid is that?

by: Anonymous Everyone here defending cats and all the other talk about how they deserve a happy life and a good home etc, etc. Oh please, instead of giving these animals a happy life and good home why don’t you adopt an orphan or homeless child, a HUMAN BEING!
Someone who really deserves a happy life. A warm meal each day, a hug every night, a bed to lay on, a family to love and an education to excel. So many people get too involved with their cats that they tend to forget the real problems humanity is currently facing. These Cat Extremist would rather put food in a cats bowl than put a warm dinner in a Human’s stomach, that saddens me deeply. Touch your hearts for once you cat lovers. Think of the world around you, the poverty many kids are suffering all over the world!

They get stupid paw prints all over my car, and leave little scratches where they climb on. This morning, I grabbed my BB gun and set up camp on the far side of the porch. The cat food bowl is on the other side, with a clear line of sight right to them. It was one of the most fun days I’ve ever had! Those little bastards are fast, though! I wish I had a hunting bow!

Black cats face a serious risk around Halloween. Never leave the cat unattended outside during that time of year.

by: Anonymous Thank you for a terrific article and the map was to the point and easy to understand. So sad that there are still some people that lack empathy for little creatures that never asked to be brought into this world. Not everyone has a heart and unfortunately they know no different. Cats are like people….they love, they get scared, they like to play and have fun, they feel pain, hunger, frustration, get sore throats, belly aches, head aches, diabetes, cancer, and more!!!!!! ONLY IDIOTS FAIL TO UNDERSTAND WHAT OTHERS FEEL AND OTHERS INCLUDE CATS!It is hard to believe that TVA is preparing to murder about 20 cats living on their property in Muscle Shoals Alabama (sometime in the next few weeks.) These abandon cats have made their homes on the several acres and for years have caused no problems. Murdering cats is suppose to be criminal and TVA should be investigated. How do they plan to remove these innocent animals that have caused no trouble. HAT IS NEXT? THE SQUIRRELS, BUNNIES, RACOONS, AND BIRDS??????

I feed these cats less than 10 feet from the traps …he (my neighbor knows this info) so not only do I have traps where my cats are and eat themselves..sooo this bastard decides to leave at 7 am Friday ( springing the traps); two hours later MY cat gets caught.Right now its 7 pm Sunday and he’s still not home I’d like to add that a peanut butter jar was left in the cage (its a way to get them to suffocate themselves and die.. if you didn’t know that trick, now ya do)…anyhow I have to come to terms with the fact my neighbor just tried to kill my cats ..Heck they can’t live without water for more than 48 hours and even then that means permanent kidney damage. soooSo I’m not too happy but happy holiday to you all..just not the cat killers ..

Aug 17, 2009An Australian admits killing cats
by: Michael (PoC Admin) This is a comment left by a visitor to a post I made about cat abuse (poisoning cats). He is Australian:

I am in Australia and it seems we have the same trouble here you have everywhere else. I have been troubled greatly in the past by cats pooping in my potted plants, my garden and spraying their vile smelling odour on my front door. This is what I do. I have an RSPCA approved live cat trap that I only put out during the hours of darkness. When I catch a cat (all have had collars so far) I attach an anonymous note written in permanent marker on a plastic tab to its collar telling the owner I am sick of it in my yard etc etc and if I catch it again I will kill it. In the past 3 years that I have been at this house I have killed 14 cats. Dont like it? Sue me!!!!

You can see the webpage and comments here:

Cat Poison

They hate the feral and stray cat in Australia. They would rather kill the cat than deal with the cause, the irresponsible owner.

Aug 17, 2009Video
by: Anonymous There are lots of videos of cat abuse (a testament to how abused the cat is, sadly). This one is not that well watched but I cannot put a video on that actually shows the injured cats.

Jun 08, 2009Animal abuse and scam breeder
by: Sylvia Ellingwood Everclear Cattery has been known ( I know of 6) to breed and sell purebred kittens that are known to be ill. Five kittens in the last 2 years have died from FIB. This breeder is irresponsible and refuses to honor any health guarantee or replace a kitten. She shows no papers in regards to the kitten’s medical shots or care.
This woman is a crook, a scam, and evil. She continues to sell kittens from a sick colony and should be starting a new colony if she really cares about having healthy kittens. Do Not buy kittens from her. Her name is Jennifer Robertson/Brix and she claims to breed in El Dorado Hills, Ca. near Sacramento. However no one can find her….while she still advertizes her kittens on Everclear website and Kijji classifieds as well. Beware!
