I think people like this should be executed! The are a menace to ethical moral people and we have too many like him! What an example to set for his kids. If not executed, he needs to have the same treatment as the kittens had. Maybe that would get through his thick stupid head!

Poor kittens, anyone who does not want things scratched should not get kittens, do not later punish a kitten for being a kitten. Hugs to the daughter too who has such a cold hearted father.

The man cannot be stable. After the first kitten, seeing its suffering, he carried on. Just a sadistic bastard who should never own a pet again, I even question the safety of his daughter.

Too bad he didn't have it done to him. Too bad he didn't get a jail sentence, which, with the biggest amount of luck, would have taught him something. These babies counted on us to protect them and we failed them.

Pity someone don't pull all his nails out with a pair of pliers and, with a bit of luck, he can be euthanized at the same time. Let's hope his family have nothing to do with this cruel, piece of low-life scum.
