Father like son. They both need to be locked up. And so does the little psychos friend. They are a threat to society.

I would say that this family has some serious issues and the poor cat had to pay for these humans not in control of their behaviour.

how old are the boys? i assume they are boys. if they are over 14 or 15, they should be treated as adults. these two sick, cruel and sissy boys need help along with punishment and shame by the whole community in which they live. peer pressure is far more effective than any authority figure which can be counter productive. they must be ordered to stay away from any small animals for the rest of their little meaningless lives.

I can not believe that we humans are so awful to our animals. This bothers me terribly, and I have a hard time dealing with all the abuse to animals that happens for the sake of money, or just plain cruelty. Home pets , we need a scrutiny before people can buy them or adopt them.

I frankly do not care a flip how old you are when you are a murderer...self defense to protect yourself or another is the only acceptable means for killing in my book...treat all as adults! And also jail the adults behind the reason for a youngster's killing. Okay you will not agree with me but I am getting tired of all the cruelty and killing, the anger and the maddness in this world!

I have no sympathy for the teenagers that were capable of this. A teen is old enough to know what he/she is doing even if they are exposed to violence at home. I feel nothing but sorry for the kind of miserable lives they face...

It really saddens me to see examples of shallow minded people like this. I was reading a story this morning on about folks leaving their pets behind when they lose their homes. I know we are all hurting now, but there are proper channels for dealing with stray or unwanted pets.
