It's just fucking weird when she looks around.
At people hollering that the RPSCA should come down on her really hard. Yeah... "ooh, bad wicked naughty lady, you're... NOT ALLOWED TO OWN YOUR OWN CAT". That'll show her.
Cats are sentient creatures. It's appalling how humanity continues to intentionally treat non-human sentient life so appallingly, simply on the grounds that it is not human.
If she had put a baby in the bin, or someone who was severely mentally disabled, she would be looking at years in jail. So why is it different because it's a cat ?
Because that clearly covers a wide range of things, from very mild conditions where the person, whilst no doubt suffering, is still clearly a human person, and still significantly more self-aware than a cat.
But for some severe cases of mental disabilities, I stand by my point.
it's potential, then kicking a baby is worse (though following this line of reasoning concludes that (most) abortion is immoral). But if you simply judge it on their actual, existing characteristics, then I think you have a challenge reasoning why harming one is worse than harming the other.
As far as I'm aware, I don't have many views in common with Cliche Guevara.
Massively OTT, but just about the only non-'mental illness' explanation I can conceive of.
on the pavements and running across the road. I think its probably for the best that when they are obviously scruffing the place up they are just tidied away like this conscientious, community minded lady has done.
Also, nice to see the Daily Mail mention - twice - that she's unmarried.
"I did it as a joke because I thought it would be funny."
"Hundreds of thousands around the globe have seen the YouTube video they also posted, 100,000 in the UK alone.
One wrote 'throw her in the bin and see how she likes it', while others called for her to be killed"
be killed? bit harsh
'It's terrible that her dad's in hospital, but to be totally honest, it's not my cat's problem."
is that it's just an awful thing to do to another family/person. A shitty, awful, mean-spirited thing.
I'm not saying she should be put in jail, but she should certainly be punished for it.
if you want to avoid getting scratched.
she would be pretty pissed off.
I am huge animal lover, and if she did it to one of my pets I'd burn down her house. But, to take away some of the emotion, it is just the most gross, anti-social behaviour even if she hates animals. Her actions just showed that she hates people as she clearly wanted to hurt the owners, make them worry, stress, waste time looking for the pet. Why would you want to do that to a person - a neighbour in fact?
Then if you chuck in the cruelty to the animal itself, followed by the inane "just a cat/just a joke" comment and quite frankly she can go fuck herself.
