I am just so upset right now. I HAD this friend who lived next door to me and recently moved. I've already lectured her about being an irresponsible pet owner. She only lived next door for a little over a year and had several dogs that she'd get and decide they were too rowdy or she just didn't like them so she'd get rid of it and come home with another one. I know she's had at least 4 or 5 different dogs. Then the dog she finally decided to keep she lets run loose who by the way chases PEOPLE and cars. She even nipped another neighbor who was jogging in the ass. I lectured her over and over again on how she needed to keep her dog contained. Then her declawed cat who she'd let rome around the porch and outside came up missing one day. So, you know that cat is dead cuz it can't defend itself without claws. Well, now to the root of my being upset. She moved out about a month or so ago and left behind a kitten she just recently got from a shelter just prior to her moving out. Actually, it was right after she lost her other cat. She left this kitten behind and claimed it got loose and she couldn't catch him. We caught him and fed him and put him in their garage. Then they come to move some more stuff out of the house and let the cat loose again knowing we had caught him and put him in their garage. So, we caught him yet again and did the same thing... fed him and put him in the garage. I stressed to her not to let this cat get loose. I told her to either find a home for him or bring him back to the shelter she got him from. We've been after them for SEVERAL weeks to take care of this cat. We've been feeding him because he got skinny as a rail. I even asked around to try and find a home for him but there were no takers. But it was their responsibility, not mine to find a home for this cat. Anyway... she just came over here the other day to say hello and yet AGAIN I reminded them how the cat is hanging around my house and getting up into the truck motor and how we have to spray it with a hose to get it out and how much of a nuisance and safety issue it was. They humored me and said they would take care of it just like they did the several other times they said they would. But of course they didn't. So, today we've been painting and doing home projects ALL day long and forgot about dinner. My hubby was just gonna go to Mcdonalds and grab us a bite to eat. My daughter was standing on the front porch as my hubby started the truck and then it happened. I was in the computer room and heard screaming. I looked out the window and at that moment I saw the cat drop from the truck engine onto the driveway. Blood was spraying everywhere and the poor cat was convulsing and it tried to run away. But the fan blade tore the cat open from stem to stern and the poor thing suffered and took it's last breath in my driveway with my daughter standing there. My husband feels awful because he forgot to check the motor for the cat. I am traumatized at what I saw. The cat did not die instantly. It was a horrid tragedy that was 100% preventable. This will forever be etched in my mind. I was so upset and angry that I sent her a nasty email and told her she was irresponsible and pointed out how this was THEIR fault. I also went one step further to bag up the cat and have my hubby put it on their front porch. I told her she could come and bury her own **** cat since it was her fault it was dead. Am I a terrible person for doing that? I am just so incredibly upset right now. It tore me up to know that poor cat suffered like that. I HATE people who just get pet after pet after pet and don't take care of them. Pets are completely dependant on their owners and there is just no excuse for this. This incident has ruined our friendship. I can not be friends with someone who let this happen. It was not fair that my family and I had to deal with this. I hope she has so much guilt that it eats her up inside.
