    Its Wrong

    How could someone hurt something so innocent like a kitten or doggy? It isn't right and if someone hurt my puppy I would make sure they wouldn't forget it soon.

    Cry

    I cry anytime I see an abused animal. It hurts me that they are suffering. I can't watch Animal Cops and everytime I see commercials with abused animals it breaks me down. Animals are so innocent and they provide unconditional love. You can be 500 pounds, have zits everywhere...

    Uncontrollably Sad Sometimes

    I get so upset when I read about any animal abuse. How could anyone hurt an innocent and defenseless animal. I think my neighbor kicked my cat recently and I want to go off on him, but I'm not 100 percent sure it was him. I loathe this man and wish he would move! Plus he scares...
