Greedy, sick... person. It's only a misdemeanor so her sentence will not be nearly stiff enough. But at least her face is out there now. And so is her name and occupation: Holly Crawford, dog groomer.

Defense attorneys argued that parents allow children to get pierced ears at young ages, and it would be wrong to hold cat owners to a higher standard. Oh please. Children can consent. A cat cannot.

Ginger is right! Plus, these cats got nothing for pain.

Oh really what do they think one meow is for yes and 2 meows is no. What do they think when a poor kitten is screaming, that they must really like it. Unbelievable this woman is. So crueland iinhumane makes me so mad.
Thanks for this story.

Good! Though she should have gotten a much stricter sentence than just a slap on the wrist...
