"Laura Lee"

The call came in this morning from a lady who witnessed a man throwing a cat out the car window. He managed to slow the car down and give her a toss. The poor little thing went tumbling down a ravine. Lucky for this little girl Karen was able to rescue her and put her in the bathroom for the night.

Honestly, I don't know what I'd do if I actually saw someone throwing a cat out the car window. I'd be torn between going after the asshole guy and going after the poor cat. It would be a tough call for me - although me going to jail isn't exactly going to help the cat.

I met Karen at our vet clinic this morning to meet "Laura Lee". She's an absolute darling little thing - probably only 8 months old, grey and white with a very pink nose. As soon as I picked her up I could feel her round belly and my heart sunk. Crud...could she be pregnant? Our vet wasn't sure so is going to sedate her a little bit for a closer look. If she isn't, she'll be spayed and put into a loving foster home. If she is, finding her a foster home won't be so easy. But I'll beat down the doors - I always do.

Laura Lee is such an endearing kitty. She tucked her front feet under her very daintily on the exam table. I kissed her little face and talked to her. She had a few minor scratches on her nose from the fall, but otherwise looked really healthy.

My own cat Pella was thrown from a car window in a box with her kittens on the 400 Hwy. To this day, I still look at Pella and wonder how anyone could do such a thing to her. Of all my cats, she's the sweetest one. She's a little "Bowling Ball Cat", round and short legs and tail. I love her dearly.

To the coward that threw Laura Lee out the window, I say: "You're lucky I didn't see you do it. I drive fast, and I'd find you. What comes around goes around. I can promise you that."

To Laura Lee: We're going to find you a wonderful home. You'll be kissed and loved so much that you'll forget the past and know only a beautiful future. I can promise you that."

Time for some eye for an eye vengeance. I wish we could find that callous low-life and toss him out of the window of a moving car.

I'd pay a dollar to see that.
