"One of the animal cruelty charges was upgraded to a fourth-degree indictable offense, court officials said, which is punishable by up to 18 months in jail. However, convictions on fourth-degree charges typically do not result in jail sentences."

Of course those charges "typically" do not result in jail sentences. After all, she ONLY killed a kitten.......

Someone needs to throw her from a 3rd floor apartment window. This person needs some serious help & I hope she never owns anymore animals. How could someone to this to their own cats or any animal for that matter? I can't imagine!

This is from the story: "The kitten-tossing occurred after a spat with a friend on Thursday morning. Rodriguez said she grabbed her two kittens and threw them out the window of the Walnut Street apartment where she was staying. She said a friend gave her the kittens about three weeks ago."

Now she says "that she's sorry." I don't think that's enough!

I get upset too, but I can't imagine working it out on one of my furbabies. I'd rather punch myself,or throw some plates on the ground or whatever.

Most people suffer, at some point, with grief and despair due to the events in their lives. You don't take it out on innocent animals.
She needs to be jailed.

I'm tired of these disgusting people who thinks that these animals are disposable. the last thing i'd grab is my loving pet and chuck it out a window. throw a glass, throw a tantrum, whatever but a living being. As far as i'm concerned she committed murder, she kill that poor kitten and the other is suffering. for what?!? because she was mad or upset. no she should never be allowed to care for any beings ever again.

So very sad and this so called woman will just get a slap on the wrist.I'm tired of these disgusting people who thinks that these animals are disposable.Most people suffer, at some point, with grief and despair due to the events in their lives. You don't take it out on innocent animals or child.

If We had Stonger New Laws on Animals Abuse, Do You think there would be less?

While this woman did a horrible thing, and I feel for the kittens and feel it is made worse that one of them died; this woman obviously has a lot of issues, to say the least. She should pay for her actions and never be allowed to have pets again. She should also be required to follow-through with getting some help!

Wow, I sure do understand why she was so upset, but, come on... what is throwing two babies cats out a window going to do, make you feel better? There is something not quite right with her, and yes, counseling is very needed.

oh yeah sure everytime a crime is commited they plead her cats were full of worms and fleas then she didn't give a s**t about them throw ur kitten out of the window and then go do laundry (while passing the dead kittens) that is not insanity that is a MONSTER, A FEELINLESS PERSON....A PERSON WHO DESERVES JAIL TIME....and whatever problems she was facing do not give her the right to do what she is clear that this woman is fully sane but just doesnt care about animals.

This is why I just do not like people. Cats wouldn't do this to us. Does anyone know how the other baby is doing?? I can not find any information on the litte guy.
