On Wednesday after work my dad went to the animal shelter as it was closing. They didn’t want to let him in, but they did. He asked if there was a cat with long black fluffy hair there. They let my dad in to look at the cages, and there was Toothless! He was curled up laying in the back of the cage very scared. When my dad made his funny meow sound that he does to make him come home, Toothless jumped up and came to the screen and rubbed up against it and was so happy to see my dad, and he wasn’t scared anymore.
My dad went back the next day to get our kitty and they told him they didn’t have any long-haired black cats. They only had a white fluffy cat. My dad waited a long time for the lady to come back and talk to him. The same lady that told my dad to come back the next day said she was sorry. She had forgotten to leave a note to tell the people my dad would be there for Toothless and they had just killed my cat that morning. She had just forgotten to write a note to save a member of my family. They killed him and I don’t know why.
My dad found out where he had been picked up and it was our neighbors down the street that don’t like cats and dogs. They had caught him in a trap and gave him to the police to take him away. When Devin and I knocked on their door and asked if they had seen Toothless they told us no, and that was a lie. My dad and mom tell me and Devin not to lie and that is right. I didn’t think big people lied because they are grown ups and know what is right. Now I don’t know what to do. My cat Toothless is dead; the people that killed him didn’t even give him to my dad so we could bury him. What do I do now?

Just so sad,however,If I had been the father who went to the shelter and saw my cat there,there is no way in hell that I would have left without him.

You see no other reason because you couldn't be bothered to read the actual article, not hassling ya, but read first: try a quick Google search. Sad story, hopefully taught the father a lesson in life about how pets by law need to be licensed, cats included. Would have been a different story for him if he followed the rules. No where elsewhere does it say anything about these imaginary Cat haters that trapped and called the police, nice hype for the sheep. I don't know any Police department in the country that shows up for feral cats. Too much sounds like hype about this for me to care for one second longer about a dead cat in Utah.edit on 7/10/12 by DangerMcBacon because: (no reason given)
