Psychopath! I hope the kitten is ok.

What a beautiful little kitten. I can’t imagine why anyone would be so heartless and cruel.

I hope someone has some dashcam footage and this low-life is dealt with.

I thought it was bad that people dumped their broken and discarded furniture etc at our apartment complex rather than taking it to the tip (meaning owners have to pay to have it removed), but this discarding of a kitten is beyond the pale.

Lazy, selfish, mean, completely lacking humanity, care and compassion, a person who does this is pretty scary and not someone you want in your life.

I hope this person is found and charged.

I am pleased this sad looking little kitty had only minor injuries.

The good news is I am sure there will be many people out there banging down the RSPCA’s door wanting to give him a good life after this horrid act.

A good life is guaranteed I am sure!

Absolute monster!
What is wrong with people in this city? How hard is it to take the kitten to the RSPCA?
