This absolutely sickens me down to my core. I pray to God they find the a-holes who did this & karma takes hold of them. How can anyone do this to a poor defenseless animal!!!! That poor baby!! They deserve to spend the rest of their lives in prison & let their follow prisoners take care of them!


The people who threw the kitten out of the car,should be held dangling out of a fast moving car for10miles, and every time they scream in terror, they should be hit on the head with a two by four. I am not a violent person, but anyone who would do this callous act need to be punished more severely than just charged with animal cruelty, if not they will do it again and again. Remember Jeffry Dahmer, he used to do exactly like that, before he started killing people and eating them.
