Disturbing Headline of the Day

NBC 4 wins the award for Monday’s most disturbing area headline: “Kittens Euthanized After Home De-clawing.”

Think you’re having a tough day? The story involved 8-week-old kittens whose feet became infected after their owner decided to take matters into his own hands and de-claw them at home, making it impossible for them to walk. The claws on their feet had been ripped out, their bones crushed, the story reported. .

Reaction to the story was fierce. “If you don’t want your furniture to be scratched up, here’s a thought: DON’T have a CAT! Home de-clawing? Unacceptable,” remarked Cheryl Thompson, Social Media Editor for NBC Washington.

Unacceptable is the least of it. The owner has been arrested on two felony counts.
