Cat Who Lost Her Sight Due To Neglect Becomes Internet Star After Being Adopted

Moet is a beautiful six-years-old Persian white cat who had a very tough life until she met Emily Shotter from Nottingham UK.  

The poor cat was born to an unregulated breeder in Oman where she was severely neglected, often left without food and water, living in a dirty cage with no bed to lie on or toys, until she lost her eyes completely.  

Moet was then transferred to an animal charity, where she was treated and her eyes were removed.

Luckily for her, not too long after that, she was picked up by the kind-hearted Emily who finally gave her the good life she deserves. 

Emily started posting photos of the beautiful Moet and turned her into an internet sensation.

Justice Was Done: City Official Resigns After Tossing His Cat During Zoom Meeting

Chris Platzer is a respectful planning commissioner from Vallejo, California, but a few days ago, on April 20, a zoom teleconference he held with other city officials went totally wrong. 

In the outrageous video below, you can see Platzer saying "I'd like to introduce my cat," then picking up his pet before suddenly tossing the poor animal off-screen. The cat landed with a thud. A fellow commissioner covers his face with his hands, while another laughs.

His questionable behavior continued as he was seeing drinking beer and making derogatory remarks after the online meeting had ended.

As the video was made public, people were stunned by his cruel behavior. 

Gladly, once again, public pressure led to justice and in an email sent to the Times-Herald on Saturday, Platzer said he has resigned from the planning commission, effective immediately: "I did not conduct myself in the Zoom meeting in a manner befitting of a planning commissioner and apologize for any harm I may have inflicted," Platzer wrote in the email. "I serve at the pleasure of the council and no longer have that trust and backing. I extend my gratitude to those who have supported me during my tenure. I have always felt that serving Vallejo in a voluntary position is honorable because Vallejo is worth serving. We are all living in uncertain times and I certainly, like many of you, am adjusting to a new normalcy."

We believe there is never a time or a place for animal cruelty, not even in uncertain times.

Great News: House Passed a Bill That Would Make Animal Cruelty a Federal Felony

We have some great news for you this morning!  

On Tuesday, the US House of Representatives voted unanimously to pass the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act. The bill would make certain types of harm to animals a federal felony, punishable by up to seven years in prison.

The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act, or PACT Act, bans abusive behavior including crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impaling and other bodily injuries toward any non-humans. The PACT Act expands the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act, which was passed by Congress in 2010 and made the creation and distribution of animal crushing videos illegal.
The bill was introduced by two Florida congressmen, Democrat Ted Deutch and Republican Vern Buchanan, in January. It was approved Tuesday by a voice vote.

"Today's vote is a significant milestone in the bipartisan quest to end animal abuse and protect our pets," Deutch said in a written statement. "This bill sends a clear message that our society does not accept cruelty against animals. We've received support from so many Americans from across the country and across the political spectrum. Animal rights activists have stood up for living things that do not have a voice."
