It was a Monday morning and my email inbox was boiling hot with people asking me to please help a cat whose four paws had somehow been amputated by some unknown criminal.

My heart hurts for all that Pepe had to endure and fury leaves me breathless at the unknown criminal who cut off his poor little paws. As for the so called animal lover, let her stew in her anger for she was enabling Pepe's continued suffering even if she was feeding him. I am so very thankful that Pepe now has a forever loving home and I wish him a life of love and comfort for the rest of his days. Blessings to all who made this possible.

Blessings to you for saving Pepe. The suffering that animals must endure at human hands makes me crazy sometimes. The post-rescue pictures and video of Pepe are wonderful, especially where he is playing with some toys.

I nearly gasped at the initial picture. Why this cat did not bleed to death, or die of infection is because he was meant to live, and be loved.

I can certainly understand the feelings of the woman who was feeding Pepe. We have certainly not ingratiated ourselves to the people in the Middle East. Also, we can produce a sizable crop of home-grown bigots who would feel the same way were the positions reversed. I am thankful that Pepe is well and happy now.

Oh my dear God! Why would she want to amputate his beautiful legs? God Bless Pepe and keep him SAFE for the rest of his life! Thnx Cher!

What a beautiful cat that did not deserve to be abused that way. This cat is probably considered lucky in that it wasn't killed. What a horrible thing to do. I pray that the person that did this to this sweet innocent animal be severly punished by God. Hope a vigilante takes care of the person that did this. What sick people we have in this world. There are way too many people in the world.

I just don't get the animal cruelty I read about on a daily basis. Thank goodness for the people who rescue these animals, help them and find forever loving homes for them. Thank you so much for everything that you do. Shared.

There is something we "HUMANS" can learn from this. For all of the hate has bend done to this cat by cutting off all four of his/her paws this sweet cat has forgiven an still wants to love an be loved by a "HUMAN" lesson 1: how to forgive just think about it would "YOU" forgive or trust a "HUMAN" if this was done to "YOU" ??? I know I would not it would take some time for me. This just shows the power that animals have for forgiving an loving we HUMANS need to learn how to "FORGIVE AN LOVE " that is the first step to having "TRUE PEACE ON EARTH" so humans why not give it a "TRY" what do you have to loss. (maybe the hate which is deep in one's heart an soul) =^..^=

Have you taken in a Moggy (stray) kitty today
