WTF?? 1 year?!
So sad. I was just watching this and just thought to myself that I never even put my kitten in a cage, ever. When I was buying a cat carrier for him, I just felt so awful looking at the plastic carriers. I could imagine him being terrified in there as we moved him around and not being able to get a solid grip on the floor of the carrier. I bought him a really big cloth carrier and I could never imagine putting him in a wired cage, ever. He has his own little sofa, he curls up in our bed sometimes, etc. And this is a kitten. Not a child. But I feel like I'm responsible for him from the minute I adopted him once his mother passed away.
How parents could put their kid in a wired cage in a pitch black basement is just shocking to me. And the fact that the judge sentenced them to only 1 year in jail just blows my mind. WHAT THE HELL is wrong with people? And why the FUCK are these people even allowed to reproduce? It's so fucking unbelievable that you need a licence to drive but not one to have a child.
