Help stop cruelty to animals

To the editor:

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? If only it were true!

I came across an article “Adopt a pet” about a cat whose name is Hiroshi, which said “Will you help Hiroshi forget the pain from someone puncturing both his eyes, leaving him blind in one and functionally blind in the other?” I just sat down and cried.

If you have ever seen ASPCA’s television commercials, this is what they are trying to stop. How can anyone do such horrid things to animals? They are loving and so happy to see you. I have cats and I wouldn’t want to live without them.

No more cruelty to animals!
