Another letter to the editor, this time for my school newspaper: Between 7pm and 10pm Friday night, somebody, maybe having a bit of "fun", decided to brutally smash in the head and the abdomen of a small black kitten, thereby killing it. This happened in front of my house, which isn't surprising because this kitten lived there and was cared for by myself and my neighbor since soon after it was born.
It never deserved to meet such a fate. And it doesn't speak well for this town that I saw a number of college age students pass by laughing at the sight of its mangled body. For those who care for outdoor cats, be careful and aware that some would do such animals harm. For those who want to make a difference report animal cruelty, never abandon an animal, and foster the kind of respect that such lives require.
