People who dump animals have no heart.
It's the same old story, they probably told the kids "We're taking them to a new home" that's why they had a blanket and food in the box, drove a few miles and throw the box out of the car. Their punishment should include telling the kids what they did to the kittens.

Their punishment should include telling the kids what they did to the kittens really, really awful, painful things, the details of which don't belong in a Caturday thread.


Fixed. Yay for the kitties!

Sad thing is, probably wouldn't phase them to tell the kids what they did.

Not Clue where Ryot is; photo only kinda resembled one domari fetched.
Schadenfreude wishes to loom large here, wishing for mis-called hoo-mons to be dumped in snow in bigger Styrofoam container!  Preferably nude with twin bed size threadbare Army blanket & bowl of congealed-by-frost gruel.

TGIC  !  been checkin' & surfin'..  the picture of the kitten reminded me of Buzzbomb.. she couldn't see anything... at least the conditions were better...I think she came from an apartment building nearby, no other cats around... we bonded..  cancer got her at 12, and she will never be forgotten....

I read this article (or one similar) the other day, and it said that sometimes animal welfare groups put out these type of shelters for feral animals so they have a refuge of sorts from the weather. It didn't seem as though they were actually "dumped" inside of a styrofoam container, but that the containers were out out for them. Just sayin'. :D
 
2014-01-02 08:27:24 PM
Still a good story, in that someone actually SAW them, and gave them a home! Yay for that!!!

It does seem a little weird. If it is a feral rescue group that did this, maybe they will step forward and clear things up. It still seems kind of irresponsible to leave something like that out in the snow without checking it when temps dip below freezing (but I'm a native Californian, so take that with a grain of salt).

FWIW, here's the original imgur album with a little more cuteness.

I've had a really long day. Woke up at midnight, and couldn't go back to sleep. Noticed when I was leaving for work that my landlords car was gone...odd. He called me at work...he had a heart attack last night and drove himself to the hospital!! GEEZ!! Seems to think it was mild....he's waiting for more tests, but said he might be home tomorrow.

both sides of my kitchen door.
Gremie letting my know Jack is at the door.
Jack with his "pitiful let me in look" that changes as soon as you open the door . He then jumps away and runs down the steps because he wants me to go out and play in the snow with him. Definitely not tonite. windchill -10 and snowing, he thinks it's great.

6° right now, about a foot of snow so far, headed down to 1° tonight and -7° tomorrow night, and of course it's still snowing. It's better than Mrs Snuffybud's hometown (Tupper Lake NY). It's -5° there right now, it's supposed to go to -12° tonight and -21° tomorrow!

I sent a small donation to help with medical bills & invited them to come visit the Caturday thread on Saturday. I hope they show up and can give us a further update!

Still cold as hell, though midcoast ME isn't getting nearly as much of that filthy white shiat as big cities to our south. Thanks for asking  :)

Don't like cats AT ALL, but nothing deserves to suffer freezing/starving to death. Even I would have to rescue them...

A local story (except it's a very small dog) in the same vein as the linked article.

He'll be fine, my dad had quintuple bypasses 30ish years ago... back then, that was scary, there have been sooo many improvements since then!!!  (Dad lived for 28 years post surgery, life expectancy at the time was maybe 10 years best case, for those that survived the surgery.)

We're well on the western edge of this mess and we've got about 4" of snow so far. They predicted 3-5" but it looks like we're going to get a little more than that. It's also starting to get really cold and windy.

There was a similar story - with a similar happy ending, thankfully - here in ME a few years ago.  Kittens left in a box in the snowbank.  The consequences could've been disastrous in a lot of ways.  Good thing there are good folks who not only have good eyes, but good hearts too!

Beastly cold and blizzardy!  Winter has only just begun and we've made our snow quota already.

Next to a good tenant there's nothing better than a good landlord. Hope he'll be ok (and glad you knew enough not to drive)  :)
