A stray cat is recovering after miraculously surviving TWO attempts to euthanise her. Staff at a Utah animal shelter made the decision to put down Andrea the cat after 30 days because no one had adopted her.

What happened to this poor girl makes one wonder how many poor innocent souls have been placed in the freezers alive and gives more reason to ban the horrific gas chambers.

It is amazing how poor innocent animals pay the price for doing nothing wrong, but yet we continously keep mad killers alive in prison. Thanks Simone

How come it took such drama to get the thought process working to a point of turnover for fostering and adopting out.

Why is KILL always the first choice with humans ... maybe because the alternatives take some time, thought and caring love?

This Utah animal shelter definitely needs retraining and a shot of mental stimulation.

I wish they stopped calling the practice of killing healthy animals"euthanasia". Euthanasia - literally the good death - is ok if an animal is ill or otherwise suffering. In any other cases, people should stop pussyfooting around the issue and call it "execution". Maybe more shelters would then become "no kill" shelters.

Great story Simone. The killing of innocent animals touches my heart deeply. I wish I could live in an Island and take care of everyone of them.

Good to see you again Nicole. Best.

Poor kitty. Lucky kitty. I guess this little girl was meant for a very special home. May she thrive and be happy.

Sue H., they're ALL meant for a special home.
Sonja is right, it's not 'euthanasia'. That's only acceptable if the animal is dying or suffering and can't be treated.
It's also not putting them 'to sleep'. It's putting them 'to death'. I hope they put a LARGE sign up in their front saying if no one adopts a certain cat or cats in 30 days, they will 'euthanise' them so everyone knows it.

Miraculously this one cat survived. So many more haven't....

Why is the dumb manager in the video SMILING? All goo-goo over the cat now that it's alive? Airhead!

How dare they say in the article that this cat really must have 'had the will to live'. THEY ALL HAVE THE WILL TO LIVE!!!!!!!!!!
It must take some certain type of person to kill dogs and cats that aren't terminally ill or to end suffering, like they're simply commodities or an unwanted object.
