So the question to the judge, would it be less cruel to let the cat die a slow painful death, or to end it's life quickly?

I hope all charges will be dropped. :goodvibes: :pray:

Wow, I don't envy you that chore! The cop didn't offer to take the cat to a vet even?? I'd have charged him with animal cruelty. I hope your friend is able to have the case dismissed. What a waste of tax dollars to charge someone for ending the suffering of an injured animal. RIP sweet kitty.

How did the cop find out? How does the cop know whether the poor little cat expired on her own or was helped along?

Ridiculous.

We've helped a suffering animal to the end of it's life a couple of times. It hurts, it's hard to do. Thank you for helping her.

if you had taken the cat to a vet and it was put to sleep would that had been animal cruelty too? I would love to know the answer to this. That is great you have a friend that a lawyer. I think it would had been horrible to had let the poor cat dies in pain.
