My 17 lb cat was just eaten alive yesterday by two pit bull mix dogs. He was laying in the shade in the driveway next to the house, minding his own business in his own yard when two pit bull mix dogs from about a mile away grabbed him and inflicted horrid damage, causing him to be euthanized. They broke all his ribs, snapped his shinbone right through his skin, bit up his throat, horribly mauled his belly innards between his legs, and bit him all over. He fought so hard for his life that he broke off many teeth (including canines) and pulled out multiple claws, but he also managed to pull one of the dog's collars off to pinpoint his killers. My cat was a bloody, guts covered mess. When my friend broke up the attack, one dog STILL went to go after my cat. They had to be frightened away to leave his lifeless body alone. When brought to the vet, they said he had so many horrific wounds that they couldn't fix them all and he had to be euthanized to end his suffering. The animal control lady gave the owners a citation for roaming and a citation for being a nuisance. They also have to pay my vet bills. How do you justify these two dogs' existence on earth, when they ate an innocent animal alive? Who or what will they attack next? If tooth removing bites and claw removing flesh wounds didn't stop them, what will next time? Certainly not another cat, or even a child. I'm trying very hard to decide how to react to the owners' stupidity and the dogs' unbelievably vicious attack on an innocent animal in its own yard. I'm in utter shock that eating another innocent animal alive in my town gives the dogs a free pass. Any suggestions or comments to help me decide what to do? Thank you. Oh- for any non-believers- the animal control lady's report should be available shortly through the town of Tolland, CT.
