Kitty Target

Deputies in Pinellas County, Fla., are searching for the person who shot a kitten with an arrow that came within inches of its heart, according to a Local 6 News report. Veterinarians removed the arrow piercing the kitten from its shoulder to abdomen and have nursed it back to health.

A kitten! What kind of messed up psycho would shoot a kitten?

I'm only posting this because it ends well. The kitten has been adopted by Kathy Powers, the good samaritan who found him. She named him Archer.

Um, this is old news -- happened nearly a month ago:

The kitty survived, has been adopted and given the name Archer. (Archery, Archer, get it?) And they caught the loser who did it the next day.

CT: I just post my POV about what interests me. I've never professed to being a news service. If you want breaking news, I might suggest the AP/Reuters photo wire.

Thanks for letting me know about the arrest of the loser, though, that is good news.

This just in to Fox News... BREAKING NEWS: Tom Delay indicted on two counts of conspiracy to commit kitty archery.

Glad they arrested the dude but I hope there's some intervention. If not, we'llbe reading about the kitten again in his book in about 20 years. He'll be writing it from prison, where he'll be serving time for serial killings!
Peace................

Helen: you're right. Psychiatrists point to 3 signs leading to serial killers. One is torturing small animals, second is a fascination with fire, & third is blogging.
Blogging! OMG.

tlm: Don;t jump the gun. Delay has just been indicted. He hasn't been convicted of cat skewering, yet (although from what I've heard about Travis County D.A. Ronnie Earle, he'd probably try that too).

I blog, like small animals, appreciate fire, and would love to hunt people who do crap like shooting kittens. What does that make me?

I was just kidding about blogging being one of the key things about serial killers! Bloggers are usually lovely peoply who love samll animals! Its just satire!

so, in wisconsin, i just have to tell you this, it's LEGAL to shoot stray cats. how ludacris is THAT.

cube said...

I remember blogging about that a while back. It is absurd, but I thought it was voted down. You know, I used to like Wisconsin (for the cheese), but now I don't know.

Jenny said...

wisconsin is still cool. and you don't hear about the cat hunting. i think it's stupid and should be outlawed. my opinion

jenny: I blogged about this on 4/12/05 and then again on 4/15/05. I guess I didn't follow up on it, but I thought cat hunting was voted down. Now I'm curious all over again.

tlm: the new breaking news about Tom Delay is a charge of kitty laundering. Oh the humanity.
