    I'm so angry!!!! What is it with people that they think they have to abuse poor little animals?? I mean for Pete's sake! What kind of pleasure is derived from this? I've got a little cat out in my pet taxi that I'm going to take to the animal rescue here in a little bit (haven't been able to contact anyone there yet)...it's a stray that's been hanging around my work for the last few days...today is the first time I saw it, but the guys at work said it's been there...anyway, the poor thing has recently gotten it's tail cut off! There is almost nothing there..it's cut right up to it's rear end. You can tell it was recent cuz it's just now scabbing over. It's also got a nasty scrape on it's nose, too. It's such a friendly thing...I had walked the one block to the bank, and it followed me back, meowing at me and rubbing up against my leg the whole time. It's such a sweet cat...why would anyone want to hurt it??? :(

    Ok...end rant.

    That is really horrible that someone cut off its tail! Sometimes the world seems just filled with monsters who do these kinds of things. I often have trouble understanding the cruelness and apathy that some people can have towards animals -- or to other humans, for that matter. It's comforting to know that there are still some people who care. It's really nice that you're taking it to the animal rescue place. I hope it will find a nice home somewhere, seeing as it's such a friendly cat.

    The rescue place will do a good job at finding a good home. I have a good friend that is a volunteer there, and I've almost adopted a kitty there too. You have to apply to get an animal, and they do follow-ups and visit you at your home after you adopt it.

    I can't adopt it...it needs vet attention, and I can't afford that right now.

    Not to say that someone didn't cut this cat's tail off but most cats that loose their tail, do so in the fan belts of a car engine. In cold climates they climb up in the engine wells if the engine is still warm and every now and then they pay with limbs or tails.

    And the fact that this cat is still walking up to people instead of being scared to death of them, you just never now.

    Just a thought..........

    I can certainly understand your anger as we have a couple of kitties of our own that we love dearly. But, are you sure some person did it?

    We've had a lot of coyote attacks on pets around us lately. They killed our neighbors cat and mauled a small dog. I've seen a squirrel with it's tail torn off and one missing it's right front paw. I'm pretty sure they were attacked by the coyotes as well. We hear them almost every night howling out in the fields behind us.

    I've also seen coyotes in large urban areas. Last year when I was comming back from O'Hare airport I saw one by the interchange of I-294 & I-90 right around 6:30 pm so they are around everywhere. It's very possible the kitten was actually pretty luck to have survived a coyote attack.

    I sure hope it wasn't a person who did it. That is just plain awful. Good for you to take it to a shelter. We have a no kill shelter around us that we support.
