Wendy Schmidt is working to increase the penalty for animal cruelty in Pennylvania

Wendy Schmidt

Some of you already know ~ on July 10th of 2012 a very tiny Kitten with huge feet was brought to me. This kitten was so thin all that could be felt was fur and bones. No-one wanted to love or even pet this kitten.

His whiskers were cut, ears had little slices in them, smothered in his own feces from head to tail, and could feel each and every bone in this kittens body. This little baby kitty would take 4 or 5 steps and then go down, get back up to try to walk only to fall down again due to being so weak. Poor little guy was only about a month old if that (eyes were still blue).

I didn't think the kitty would make it through the night but I took him in anyways. I gave him a little bit of warm milk, bathed him, gave a little (very little) moist kitty food, (which he ate like a little piglet) then gave him another bath. I let the kitty snuggle up to me during the night thinking ~ lost cause, he will surely die.

I woke up with this kitty snuggling up to me, and looking straight at me. I fed him, gave him more warm milk, and bathed him for the 3rd time. Each day this kitty grew stronger, bigger, happier, and after almost 2 weeks he began to play and was able to purr. Took quite awhile to put some meat on his tiny bones so he could get the love he well deserved.

He will be 2 yrs old in June. He has turned into a very beautiful big, fat, long haired, black and white cat and answers to the name of ~ Seven (7).

Those who can abuse an animal can very easily abuse a child. We need tougher laws on this subject for these animals (big or small) cannot speak for themselves ~ we as humans need to be human and care for the animals, not abuse them.

Please help by signing this petition and stop the war on animals. Thank - You.
