Noted Tks Cher... I'm glad the girl spoke up and that all the cats were recovered..I'd like to toss those kids out the flippin window..
A four week old kitten was tossed out of the window into a ditch by an older woman, near Crossfield, Alberta..This kitten was rescued, but died 10hrs later from trauma and a broken leg, best efforts were given..So when people do these cruel needless acts, it makes me so flippin angry just wondering what the hell this world is coming to these days and it's not getting any better..
Hope Abby and the other kitties get furrever homes.. Have a good weekend everyone...

Kudos to the girl who told her Mother. Those young men need therapy, because it won't end there.

These boys actions were intolerable, and I am so happy that the girl told her mother and that her mother phoned the police on her own step-son. If they are capable of doing something so sickening as throwing a kitten out of a car window, if councelling is not given, they could go on to doing worse things.
I am so happy to know that all were found and that little Abby will be ok, and find a happy welcoming home really soon.
Thanks for letting us know Cher.

It's people like these teenagers that make me have trouble sleeping at night. Poor cats! Poor lady who couldn't take care of her cats anymore.

I agree, Megan, about the poor woman who couldn't care for them any longer. She placed her trust in persons undeserving. Sickening. Thank God for the girl and her mother who did not just dismiss it. Craigslist is no place to put animals for any reason. Thanks, Cher.

What a sad story. Thankfully the young teenager who was a sister to one of the abusive boys intervened and managed to save all of the cats. Thanks for this educational article Hopefully it will spread some awareness and warn people of the risks of trusting strangers on the internet to rehome pets that they are responsible for.
