      I don't think anyone has the right to abuse anybody much less a defenseless helpless animal.... I think it's just wrong and cruel to hurt something that has done nothing wrong in this world to deserve being abused at all.

      I have loved cats all my life. I have owned (in total over a 35 year period) in total, about 17 cats. An I can say that each & EVERY ONE of them are/ were unique. Having their own personalities & quirks. They are just as loyal & loving as a dog, or even another human being. Would you put your infant into a plastic bag & throw him/her into a freezing river, simply because you were too lazy to do what was best? What was right? NO! Of course you wouldn't. I sincerely hope this woman gets punished to the fullest extent. She makes me ashamed to be an Oregonian!
