Who Did It?
Late Saturday night after returning from a fire call, one of our sons noticed a small little kitten sitting on the road and a few others running around by a big box. We live on Santa Ana Valley Road, and where he spotted the kittens was not far from where we live. He stopped and, after quite a chase, he managed to catch one of them. He came home and returned to the road with his brother, (and mind you this was about 3:30 a.m.) and they both managed to catch three more kittens.
The next morning, we noticed someone had run over the mother cat, and, later in the day, one of the kittens also was run over. The same son that first spotted the kittens noticed two more kittens sitting next to the dead mom on the road. He stopped and again managed to catch the two kittens. Earlier in the morning, we found a home for two of the kittens. One of the neighbor’s daughters took two of them. So now we have four more that need a home.
All the kittens were very friendly, wanting to be petted, and all knew how to use a litter box. This indicated that they had been house broken and were not wild cats.
It angers me that a person could be so heartless to just dump animals in that manner. Cats and kittens are not junk. They are animals that have emotions and feelings like we do.
To the person who dumped this mom and her baby kittens: I hope you read this article. Remember, what goes abound, comes around. Maybe someday you will be dumped in a cardboard box, where someone as heartless as you belongs.
From someone who cares,
