Idiotic cat ownership

I don’t think you will see a better example of idiotic cat ownership.  This American woman apparently thinks it is a good idea to tie her calico cat to the hood (bonnet in the UK) of her car and then drive the car around town with her husband in the passenger seat.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

No doubt, she thought it was a good idea and a good way to give her cat an outing.  She thought, oh yes, let’s take our cat for a drive.  This is her version of an outdoor cat! There can be no other reason.

I can hardly think of anything more dangerous.  But she thinks it’s safe.  Can you imagine what sort of mental process goes through her brain to decide that it is safe and sensible to do this sort of thing to her cat? It is not only very unsafe for her cat but for her and her passenger. If the cat fell off she’d have to react quickly which could be present a hazard to her and other road users.

She must have a maximum of two brain cells to rub together inside her cranium.  We have to criticise the passenger who I’ll presume is her husband, as well, because he either decided upon it or allowed it to happen.  My strong feeling is that she made the decision and he went along with it to keep the peace.

It seems that the cat is in a harness on a lead and the lead is tied to the wiper blades.  She could easily fall off the bonnet.  The lead could work free and the cat could fall under the car or be knocked down by any other vehicle passing at that time.

The location is New Philadelphia, Ohio.  The person who took the photographs is Polly Vandall.  The car is a Buick.  The photograph was posted to Facebook.

Of course, outraged animal advocates are heavily criticizing this woman and rightly so.  It has been picked up by the Ohio police who are investigating and a spokesperson for the police force said that the woman should never own a pet. I agree. I wonder if she has done this stunt before. In Britain the RSPCA would probably prosecute her if they could find her.

  1. It was such a stupid (not to mention dangerous)thing to do. I can only imagine she lacks the mental capacity to comprehend that fact.

  2. Just when you think you’ve seen every kind of idiot, another one comes along 🙁

    I don’t like passing judgment on others, but for Christ’s sake what was she thinking? Scratch that, she obviously wasn’t thinking. I hope she doesn’t have a job where she’s responsible for the health or safety of others.

  3. Um… uh… well? Crimaney sake. I’m at a loss for words. This is abusive behavior. Period. I think it’s kinda funny they’d even think to do this. Must be a small town. People in small towns think differently. I wonder if anything was done about it?

  4. Not just bugs…but stones chips or other items can fly up and hit the cat. What about the wind ..once she get going (that won’t be good for this poor cat). What about the weather (it seems nice out but could turn bad).
    Yes.. the cat isn’t even secured properly and turning quickly in any direction could cause the cat to slide across the hood and fall off or just plain fee itself and fall off in general.
    Actually if you look closely at the pics passenger (looks almost Asian or native American). And it’s not being racist…it just looks facially like one of the 2.
    Personally .. I’d like to see these 2 half wit morons caught (at some point their car has to stop for a traffic light or passes ANY camera). Something aimed at them that catches their license plate and a close up of their faces.
    I’d very much like to see the same done to both of them..improperly secure the 2 heartless shits to hoods of cars(face first towards the road)..and fly down the streets..weaving in and out of traffic..maybe even out on the highway for a nice drive at 100+ miles an hour. Worthless sub-human scum is what they are…they should be treated the same. See if they LIKE IT!!!!

    • Sorry about typing errors…tend to get annoyed at stuff like this and don’t look at what I’m typing. *Once she GETS going*, *or just plain FREES itself*
      My bad!!! Oh..not bad at what I want to see done to these 2. Just bad at typing!!

    • I like your thoughts. They are similar to mine. They look Asian to me. There may be a cultural connection there without wishing to be racist either. What they did was just so stupid. God they must be thick.

      • I know Michael (It’s why I ADORE & Appreciate you so much)!! As I said..not trying to seem like a racist because I’m not. But..If you look at the pic closely it seems they have Asian or native American features.
        Personally, I don’t care what they are!!! They can be any race,creed,color, any sex or religion or whatever. I COULDN’T CARE LESS!!! I don’t appreciate what they are doing. That can be said for anyone who does any type of heartless, cruel acts to any animal.
        If you plan on doing things to animals like this..I’d be just as mean to ANYONE who does right back at them and say “whatever you do to the animals you hurt; Do them right back”.

  5. i hope she IS prosecuted. thats animal endangerment & reckless driving at the very least! ye gods! what was she thinking, & why did her husband NOT stop her? this is proof that there is no such thing as “common sense”.
