The wickedness of humans: using cats as pawns in domestic disputes — 4 Comments

  1. This article brought to mind the case of Donovan Mackey of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, who took his anger out his girlfriend’s kitten named Bookie. Apparently, Mackey was so upset when he couldn’t find his girlfriend at home that he grabbed little Bookie and threw him in a running washing machine. Although Bookie survived his ordeal in the washing machine, he later perished from more abuse inflicted on him by Mackey.

    The last I’ve heard is Mackey has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty and will be sentenced in November. Mackey’s actions are beyond upsetting, but it’s also troubling that our laws simply yawn at such cruel and inhumane actions.
