WARNING – UNPLEASANT IMAGE – Is this a sick joke? Is it photoshopped? It must be. It looks very realistic. It is shocking. There is no information and bizarrely it is categorized as a news photo on this website under the title: Dying Cat Mercifully Put Down Garbage Disposal. I understand that the site where it is published is known for this sort of prank so I’ll take that as confirmation it is fake. However, I think it is going too far as a prank. It is demeaning to the domestic cat and could encourage abuse.
