Heartbroken Boy Begs Teacher for Help After Father Tosses Cats Outside



When a 9 year old Newark student told his teacher that his father tossed their two cats outside, it set into motion a group effort to rescue these cats. One of the cats was pregnant. The weather was 10 degrees and it was 2 days before the snowy blizzard was expected to arrive.

The Society received an alert from a member of S.A.R.A. (Summit Animal Rescue Association) and AHS immediately dispatched an ambulance to the Newark residence where the 2 cats had been tossed out after being family pets. Not only could no one give us any information, there were no cats around the house. The Animal Control Officer returned a few times during the day to see if they were visible but did not see them.

In conversations with members of S.A.R.A., one of whom is the boy's teacher, the man was advised that not only was it illegal, it was inhumane as the cats would never be able to survive the cold or the oncoming snowstorm. Due to strong warnings, the man was able to catch one late at night and the second one was caught the next day.

Princess Sara and Jasmine are year old cats who had a nice life while in their home ... but threats from the landlord frightened the tenant to immediately toss them out. Thanks toS.A.R.A, Princess Sara and Jasmine were vetted and Princess was spayed by them. The AHS has spayed Jasmine and judging from the meowing when they are separated, it is obvious that they are bonded. They are Felv/FIV negative. A donation to AHS will allow us to continue our johnny-on-the-spot efforts to dispatch our ambulances to rescue animals in dangerous and/or precarious situations.

The heartbroken youngster had been deeply troubled by the act of his father. Now he, as well as his entire class, have given a thumbs up this for group effort. The students were involved in this sad tale which could have had a tragic ending. It has been a learning lesson for the parents, as well as this class.

It is not unusual to find people in the animal rescue field who can recount the sad stories they experienced in their childhood. Parents should place importance on the tender feelings that children have for their pets, for the animals they encounter in the woods, circuses, zoos, stray animals, movies and books that they may relate to. Keep lines of communication and feelings open with youngsters. For they will carry these messages into adulthood.

It is sad when parents do not take their children's feeling into consideration. The decisions you may have concerning animals or an unwanted pet may conflict with the values they have. Children can be hurt by what parents have done and it will affect them for their lives.

Princess Sara and Jasmine are sharing a space together at the Associated Humane Societies' Newark shelter. The shelter is located at 124 Evergreen Ave., just off of Rt. 1 and 9, near the Newark International Airport, the NJTurnpike, Rt. 22.

Princess Sara and Jasmine are now waiting for a meowvelous new chapter in their lives. For more information, call AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us.
