This cat rescue story will make you mad at the humans who allowed a tiny little kitten to be abused but it will also make you happy that a kind human stepped in. A human was visiting one of her friends on a farm. Now, I know that farmers do not get too sentimental about animals because they have to raise them and sell them to others. But that does not mean they should allow animal abuse to happen.
The visitor noticed a tiny feline with a white lynx appearance. When she pointed it out, the farmer grabbed the kitten by its head and threw it to her. Furiends, this is animal abuse, and it should not have happened.
When the kind human played with the kitten, she noticed that it was hurt. It was the runt of the litter, and had a jaw that was hurt. Later, the kind human would learn why it had been hurt.
She was inside, and told her children to keep an eye on the kitten while she was talking to the farmer. There was an argument, and she went outside to help settle it. When she did, she noticed the farmer’s granddaughter stepping on the kitten’s tail. Naturally, the kitten lashed out when it was hurt. And then this cruel child threw the kitten over the patio railing and into the car window.
The poor kitten naturally went to hide after being abused like this. But fortunately for her, witnessing this animal abuse made the human who saw it decide to take that kitten home.
The response from the farmer was horrible. “Good,” he said. “I was planning on tossing them if the coyotes didn’t get them.” It is this attitude that resulted in the granddaughter feeling that it was fine to engage in animal abuse. I do not understand why a human would not like a feline like me, or my canine counterparts. But love us or hate us, animal abuse is never justified!
Fortunately for this kitten, there was someone to step in and to get her the treatment from the humans in white coats to heal her injuries. They were extensive, my furiends. She had a broken jaw, broken tail, broken ribs, and possibly some brain damage due to the abuse she endured.
For too many of my fellow felines, though, there is nobody to step in. That is why caring two legged creatures like you and felines like me must work together to stop animal abuse!
