'Left for dead'

A letter from a reader -- more fodder for my blogging colleagues who think animal stories like this are a waste of newsprint:

Dear editor,

Thank you for placing teh story about the abandoned, mistreated kitens, "Left for dad," on your front page Thursday, 11/3. The story saddened me a great deal. Perhaps the placement of their picture in the center of the front page attracted the attention of readers who would have otherwise passed it over.

There is so much sadness in the world today. Sometimes I feel as if so few people care about animals. Your little article gave me some hope.

I wish more people would spay and neuter their pets. yes, it is an expense. However, when you consider the suffering that could be prevented, it is definitely worth it.


Thank you.

Janie Lowrie
