Kristin Stieglitz letter: Sorry the cat-killer can't love animals

In response to the article about the Fargo man who killed his cat:

He said "the cat was no more to me than a goldfish, and I'm sorry the rest of the world doesn't see it that way." No, I'm sorry that there are people like that in this world who cannot understand and feel the love that animals express or the fear and pain they inflict upon them. I'm sorry that there are ignorant people in this world like that. But that doesn't mean that I'm going to slit his throat with a box cutter because I find him to be a nuisance, does it? Compassionate and humane people do not do that, even if he is just a "dumb animal."

He said if he had taken his cat out into the country and shot her, nobody would know and nobody would care. He would know, and he wouldn't care, and that is what is so scary.

What kind of role model is this man? It takes weak character to do something like that, not a strong "man."
