Kittens tossed like garbage into park trash can

Here is a disturbing story in today's Toronto Star.

What kind of a person could do this?!?!

Happily the kitties are recovering and will soon be up for adoption.

It takes exceptional cruelty to tape two tiny, sick kittens into a cardboard box and dump them in a trash can, as though they’re garbage.

The kittens, a brother and sister, are recovering in the home of real estate agent Sandee Avery after a kindly city parks worker rescued them last Sunday at Morningside Park.

The little pink pads on their paws were scalded — possibly from being confined in a space where they sat in their own waste — and the fur around them tinged a ghastly yellow.

But after they were treated at the Guildwood Cat Hospital on Kingston Rd., the 12-week-old kittens are coming along nicely and already showing signs of playfulness.

The male kitten’s rear paws were so badly burned that they had to be heavily bandaged before he was sent home from the cat hospital with Avery.

It's difficult to imagine such terrible cruelty.

Thank goodness they were found and are ok now!
