Target: Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority Chairman Sue Diekman
Goal: Find people responsible for allegedly using live kitten as a dog’s chew toy and bring them to justice.
A badly injured 8-week-old kitten covered in bite marks and dyed purple was reportedly found in a box. The kitten had 20 deep, red wounds, one of which will require surgery, said the shelter that took him in.
The kitten is believed to have been used as a dog (or other animal’s) chew toy, according to the veterinarian who treated the cat. The cat was taken in by an animal shelter where the veterinarian says she’s seen live animals used as “bait” for other animals a lot. She says the purple cat appears to have been used as a “chew toy.”
Using an animal as a chew toy is cruel and sick. The Nine Lives Foundation, which took the cat in, hopes to raise awareness about this level of animal cruelty, but there’s still a sick human out there who did this to the poor, innocent kitten. Demand the authorities do everything in their power to find whoever is responsible and bring them to justice.
Dear Sue Diekman,
It was brought to our attention that a cat was found in a cardboard box with horrific bite wounds and with its fur dyed purple. The animal shelter that took the cat in said it appears the kitten was used as a chew toy for another animal such as a dog. The kitten is alive, but will reportedly require surgery for one deep wound on the arm.
This is animal cruelty and it shows how sick and demented the humans responsible for this are. People capable of this horrific level of animal cruelty are a danger to society and animals and they should be removed from the public. We urge you to do everything in your power to find the person(s) responsible for this heinous crime and bring them to justice before they harm more living beings.
