"A woman spotted the gray tabby wandering, covered in tape, and brought the animal to the human society. The animal, nicknamed Sticky by animal welfare workers, was dehydrated and had to be sedated while the tape was cut off its fur."

I am astonished at this mindless cruelty.

I love cats. I know a lot of people out there don't like them, and I can respect their preferences, but this is just incredibly mean (not to mention bizarre).

Fortunately, the poor cat is doing ok.

What was the idiot boy thinking??

I hope they throw the book at him.

See, for cases of torture, I think that is the only situation where torture should be the punishment.

You wrap a cat in duct tape and dehydrate it? Then get wrapped in duct tape and left without food or water for a few days. Teach some sympathy.

So you agree that bullfighters should be made into shish-kebabs with skewers as well?

The kid was sent to a mental hospital. His family was murdered, and he bugged out(at least that's what I heard on the news)

That asshole should be wrapped in duct tape himself, so he can feel what the poor cat went through. Good to know that the cat is doing OK, because what happened is not just simple animal cruelty, it's torture.

Maybe, in order to be a bullfighter, you should have to endure a painful rope around your testicles and getting jabbed at until your muscles don't work.

After you recover from that, you should be given the option of whether you want to be a matador.

I do oppose animal cruelty, even if it's a sport with hundreds of years of tradition behind it. Most countries ban cockfighting and dogfighting, right? Why is bullfighting allowed?

(The an$wer is that countrie$ that allow bullfighting have certain rea$on$ for refu$ing to ban it.)

If you need to kill an animal to eat it, kill it as painlessly and quickly as possible. If you need to do research on an animal, do it as painlessly as possible.

You know, I've seen a few psychotic breaks in my life. In fact, I've seen a lot of psychiatric conditions because my training was pretty heavy on the psych stuff. People who are insane tend to lash out, but they do so suddenly, violently, and often without very much warning (word to the wise: if an obviously crazy person tells you to back off or he's going to hurt you, BACK OFF. I learned this lesson the easy way, thankfully). A cat wrapped in duct tape sounds to me like something done by a cold, calculating mind. It lacks the explosive, spur-of-the-moment quality of a psychotic break. It's more of a serial killer's way of behaving than that of someone who "bugged out."

Something has to be very wrong with your sense of empathy to carefully wrap a cat in duct tape like the photo shows.

Now, without any further knowledge of the patient, I can't make any other judgment. But my educated guess is that he knew what he was doing when he taped that cat and put it in a plastic bag.

I wish that was the case. Fortunately bullfights are not a big cash machine in Portugal as they are in Spain, as most people oppose them, but yet the vocal few who support them still manage to keep the torture going.

Getting back on topic, how long until one of the usual suspects gets onto this thread to complain that God created man superior to all other animals and so animals are personal property and we should be allowed to do whatever we want with them?

I read somewhere that children that torture or mutilate animals often become serial killers when they reach adulthood. I hope the authorities keep their eyes on this kid.

Yup. I went to one. Once. At age 18. And that was when I decided how cruel it was.

Yup. It's the same cold, calculating, unempathetic mentality.

It is stuff like this that really makes me not want to let my cats be outdoor cats. You just don't know what people, sane or otherwise, would do if one of my cats wandered into their yard.

Alternatively those people who argue that we should be focusing more on human on human crimes instead of animal cruelty. To which I argue that our treatment of animals is very directly related to our treatment of other human beings.

Yes, it is very concerning. He's just about the age where any number of serious psychiatric disorders can manifest. For example, schizophrenia manifests usually between the ages of 15 and 25. This isn't schizophrenic behavior (schizophrenic behavior usually makes no sense at all), but the point is that if something seriously big and nasty is going to pop up, it's this now that he doesn't have a family around to guide and protect him against himself.

Very true. It's obviously a very nice cat, else it probably wouldn't have been caught and bound in tape in the first place.

He picked the wrong cat. The right cat would have clawed him to shreds. Looking at my cat gang curled up sleeping on the couch I cannot imagine how I would react if someone hurt any of them.

Doc, how come you make this argument of basically "an eye for an eye" in this thread, but then argue AGAINST the death penalty in another thread, which is the same logic, just taken to a further lever?

Just a guess, but possibly because he is still not advocating killing anyone.

Latest update from yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer:

'Sticky' has found a family.

The cat that became a media sensation after being found body-wrapped in duct tape joined its new adoptive family yesterday, according to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

A handful of people called to claim ownership, but no one followed through, according to spokeswoman Liz Williamson.

I mean, heck, the cat is fine. Had he killed it or caused more serious injuries (broken bones, cuts,etc), sure throw him in the slammer, but 6 months if anything. Had he killed it, why not, give him 2 years.

That's the maximum amount of time he could get. I doubt he will get that long. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if he gets no jail time. Just the fine. If he does get the maximum sentence, he'll spend more time in jail for duct taping a cat then Michael Vick spent in jail for his dog-fighting ring, which was 19 months.

Ok, apples and oranges, chalk and cheese. But, would you like to be wrapped in duct tape, put in a plastic bag and dumped in a garden without food and water? Just interested.
