THE CAT IN THE CAR
Now that the weather is cold, wet and miserable, the activities of a certain type of person are painfully evident. He (or she) suddenly discovers that there is an unwanted pet cat in the home." Instead of having it painlessly destroyed by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, for that means a little thought and trouble, the owner puts it in a bag or basket in the back of a car, throws the frantic creature out in another suburb, and leaves it to be cold, hungry and homeless, in a strange place. Unless someone a little more decent in behaviour rescues the poor animal, its fate is miserable. These unthinking people deserve to have experience of being cold, hungry and lost themselves. It is a great pity that there is not some legal penalty. COLONIA.
