    Exactly. I wish I'd been driving behind her. A shame she didn't run her vehicle into a tree at a very high speed. Hell is to good for folks like this.

    Awful. We had a 10 wk old kitten just show up last year. She somehow found our house and I found her scrounging for scraps left by our outside cat. She was a feisty survivor (and was tame - not feral) and although we had cats already I thought she deserved the chance someone tried to deprive her of. She's a joy! Unlike this piece of I don't know what.

    May she have a short life before she hurts another animal or person.

    The world is a safer place for animalkind and humankind alike with this woman BEHIND BARS where she can be psychologically evaluated and given a plan for her rehabilitation. This sort of violent behavior is infectious and would inspire her children to be cruel to others, or inspire witnessses to retaliate against her violently were it left unpunished. Today is a good day for justice.
