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.

  1. Who is the nob doing all the thumbs down? and I concur that website is going too far and I am not going to share it on FB.

      🙂 he is a cat hating troll who spends too much time clicking on thumbs down. A sad individual.

    Crass Photoshop job I hope. The Onion looks increasingly desperate these days.

    • Michael Broad says:

      I wasn’t aware of the onion’s reputation until this. Gone too far in my opinion. I hate to see this sort of thing as it is demeaning to the cat. It belittles the cat for me. It is a joke too far.

  3. Anne says:

    Tail is too big. A cat won’t fit in a garbage disposal. This is sad, even for the onion.

  4. Goldie Goodwin says:

    Yikes! That came off The Onion, and they seem to be into shock postings. They need to be boycotted for this kind of stuff.

    • Michael Broad says:

      Yes, it is designed to shock. I don’t think should be allowed when it concerns animal abuse even if it is fake.
