Nothing is worse than losing your own children. And it’s just as painful for animals as well, like one mother cat in Xi’an whose two kittens were brutally stabbed and even decapitated on the street.
The two poor kittens were discovered by an old lady surnamed Yang who has been taking care of homeless cats in the neighborhood for the past few years. Mrs. Yang spotted the mother walking back forth, meowing constantly at her two dead kittens, licking them, trying to wake them back up.
Mrs. Yang said that she was terribly shocked when she found that one kitten had had its head cut off, while the other one had been stabbed in the stomach, Sina reports.
Mrs. Yang buried the two kittens, while the mother looked mournfully on.
While Mrs. Yang may have cared for her stray cats, it appears that somebody else did not.
This heartbreaking story might remind you of another case that occurred in 2013 when the Tsinghua University cat, a feline mascot beloved by staff and students who lived in the university library for 19 years, was killed in a pool of boiling water.
Many netizens on Weibo have criticized the cruel behavior of the kitten killer:
@Liuqi: You may dislike cats, but please do not hurt them!
@act wildly on the roof: Was this done by a human being? 😡
@psalmoi-: This was insane! Poor kittens!
It seems that celebrities need to work a little harder in calling for compassion towards animals. Especially when animals show such compassion for each other.
