This kid should run for president, when he's older. He'd reform animal rights.

"...and a child shall lead them." bless him and all his works! KibbleCat/Dog, a popular click-to-feed-RL-animals website responsible for supplying millions of meals to pets in need, was also started by a youngster. there's hope for humanity yet...
