If you can't be trusted to take care of a kitteh, then how in the hell are you going to take care of kids; and they're druggies?
When we took Cali Gal, and her kittens Cali was wasted, thin, looked like close to death. Wed been feeding her kibble, and water through a fence for months, but the jerk up there would toss the food, and water when he discovered it.
Are you saying this dirtbag would toss the food and water you meant for the kitteh away, seriously? Much as I think CPS goes way overboard, this might actually be a case where they might help.
Although there will people who deny this, there seems to be a causal relationship between torturing/abusing animals and being a serial killer. Very scary, if the law never catches up to them in their present state, remember their names in case we get a 'Ted Bundie' like case in the area.
Long story, but the short of it, and sorry it’s the incomplete short of it as I don’t know what happened after.
He went to jail a few months after we absconded with the kitties. The “wife”, and the two girls went off to live in a trailer according to neighbors somewhere, and the county cleared the land of all of their stuff. The property was developed in 2005, and is now vacant due the new “owners” walked away from their loan in 2007 when all was going topsy turvy. Still vacant today although ownership has changed hands again.
I haven’t a clue what became of the guy if, or when he got out of jail, nor do I much care. Sad for the little girls who are now adults, and probably as messed up as their mother, and him. Very sad, but the kitties are all healthy, and happy here at the ranch. We could at least do something for them.
