    I'm not a fan of cats, but man that is tragic.

    One of the articles comments really struck home for me, did the son just take the forms, fill them in, sign and hand them back without reading what he was signing?
    Both parties are at fault here IMO.

    I love cats, it used to be dogs... This is horrible. Some people grow very attached to their animals and I can only imagine how heartbreaking this is for the owner.
