Right now there is a video going around the internet - well, two versions of one video actually. In one it shows a cute kitten crawling all over a police man who is writing a ticket and cuts out before the final part. In the other, the cop kicks the kitten at the end of the video. A lot of people who haven't seen the full version are posting it and saying how cute it is. Sure it starts that way, but seriously, it isn't cute at the end. It is awful at the end. It is a terrible example for people - it makes it seem ok to treat animals this way. Our Family Cat-A-Blog did a great post on it a few days back - you can follow the link to their site to see the video.
I get that the cop was frustrated but this wasn't the way to deal with it. And there are a few people saying that "well it was not kicked hard, just shoved with his foot" - THE POINT IS NOT THAT IT WAS HARD OR SOFT PEOPLE! The point is that it appears the cat is kicked - and that people will take that to mean animal abuse is ok. The farmer who owns the kitten is now willing to sell it for a high price because he is milking it knowing that people want to help this kitten - for him it is pure greed. Sickening.
It is not a funny video when you see the whole thing, and when you watch the edited one it gives you a false impression of the situation. Please stop spreading this thing around!
