“Human, you know how you are trying to get people to sign a petition to form an animal abuse registry?”
“Well, you need to make that happen. Another one of my fellow felines was set on fire in Houston.”
“I will try, Bagheera.”
“Human, this is important enough that even Marley has come out to tell you to do it. None of us were ever victims of animal abuse. You took me in as a little kitten and cared for me. Jacey was in the home of one of the humans in white coats until you got her. And Marley, even though she is shy, had a good home and she was taken care of until you brought her here. We all want you to get your fellow humans to sign the petition.”
Unfortunately, an animal abuse registry won’t help this cat who was found in Houston. My fellow feline was set on fire, and it is only thanks to the kindness of the humans at the Houston SPCA that she is getting the care she needs.
One of the humans at the Houston SPCA said that this cat, who is between two and three years old, is “currently in stable condition and facing a lengthy rehabilitation.” They are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the evil human who did this. And if there was an animal abuse registry in place, this cruel human, upon conviction, would be put in a registry so that humans with pets and organizations that help pets find homes would know not to trust him.
We’ve heard many stories of animals who have been tortured like this, and remember, we only hear about a small percentage of these incidents. The efforts of felines like Lucky and Justin and me can only go so far. We need human help to stop animal abuse. That is why Jacey, Marley, and I are asking you with pleading eyes to sign the petition to form an animal abuse registry and to share it with everyone you know.
If we can save just one animal from suffering like Lucky, Justin, and this feline did, it will be worth it. Please help and let me know that you did in the comments.
