‘Grown-Ups Killed My Kitty,’ Boy, 8, Claims In Heartbreaking Letter To Newspaper

"Salt Lake City, Utah – An 8-year-old Utah boy wrote a letter to his local newspaper, telling the world that “grown-ups” had killed his cat, Toothless. The letter, which became popular overnight, began: “Yesterday grown-ups killed my kitty, my best friend, when they weren’t supposed to.” The cat, who had run away from the family’s home, had been discovered at a local animal shelter, but workers failed to put a note on the animal’s cage.

I hope that Rayden can learn to trust adults again... sometime

I also hope there's reincarnation, and Toothless comes back to him. (not sarcasm.)

8. These animal shelters need some sort of rules or regulations...

Once is way too many times.

Poor kid.

9. Poor Toothless

Unfortunately, this is a story that I've heard many times.

I cannot ever understand why when there is a chance that ONE pet has an opportunity to get back home, some uncaring staffer doesn't follow through, double check, triple check, to make sure that pet gets reunited.

So many companion animals are killed every day in shelters across the country. One would think that getting a loved pet reunited with his family would be the HIGHEST priority.
