Stouffer was an orange fur ball, just getting steady on her feet when a leg amputation knocked her off balance. She was about 6 weeks old and just getting to know her new family when a 3-year-old boy put her in a microwave and turned it on.

SHOCKING! What were the parents doing when the 3 yr old put the kitten in the microwave??? This little guy is very lucky to be alive!

"This kitten, now about 8 weeks old, suffered severe burns after being put in a microwave by a 3-year-old boy. Doctors had to amputate one leg, her tail and both ears, but she now is fine, frisky as ever and looking for a good home."

There was awful story in the news here in Alberta about some teens who did the same thing to a cat here and the cat died ...The teens have been charged but I do not remember what the charges are.

My heart goes out to this little kitten Thank you for sharing Cher and noted.

This kid needs some serious counseling and this family needs to own no more pets ever. God forbid if they have another child if this kid is this cruel at only 3 years old.

I don't think the 3 year old is necessarily 3 he knows nothing of life and death or microwaves and injuries. He didn't do anymore than any 3 year old NOT supervised might have done. A lot of assumptions being made here... that just don't hold up to scrutiny. Knowing children, I'd like to know where the older children were, before making judgements...the oldest at eight might have put him up to it, especially if he heard sick stories from older children about similar events. It's only been a few weeks since it was an infant in a a man, and 2 small children in a dryer by another man. If we as a society don't stop the worship of violence and indoctrinating young ones into accepting violence as entertainment and as a source of humor, there will be more.
