It seems her pet cat, Andy, was mauled to death by dogs last night. I am not a huge fan of cats, I prefer dogs, but Andy was not your run of the mill cat. He was a rescue kitty when he first came to my nephew’s home. A lovely blond Siamese mix, neutered, and a skilled hunter of lizards, Andy sunned on my porch, napped under my car and bothered no one. He pretty much stayed in my yard or that of my nephew. Even in death he was only in the yard directly across the street.
Last night another neighbor saw a group of three dogs loose on the street, one quite large, and they apparently trapped and killed Andy, who was unafraid of dogs because of his own housemates. I now hear of two other mauled cats in Shepherd Park Plaza, both around the Thornton area where I live, so it would seem we have a neighbor who thinks it is OK to turn his or her dogs loose at night.
It is not OK. Responsible dog owners do not let their animals roam loose to harm other people’s pets and traumatize little girls. Walk your dogs on a leash, or let them free in your own fenced back yard. If you cannot control your dogs you do not deserve to have them.
Where to go when a stroke occurs
With the blessings of the Lord my wife (Marketta Handy) and I(Anthony Handy) observed my brother when we came to visit him at home soon after he had checkout from the hospital. My God, he talked, understood me, and walks better than I could ever imagine. He gave the staff at the hospital great credit for the service that they provided to get him back on his feet and back to enjoying his spirit filled life as he and Beverly love it. God Bless the Hermann Hospital and their staff for helping my big brother and keeping him around for all of us to enjoy his wonderful presence longer. May the Lord’s peace be with you all always.
