(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Adam The Cat

I'm tired of bad news; how about some uplifting news (thanks Dave!) for a change? From The Press Democrat (Sonoma and Santa Rosa, CA):

Burned cat finds permanent home

It won’t feel any different to Adam the cat, but from this day forward, Sonoma County’s most famous cat has a permanent home.

It’s the same house in which he rested each night under the watchful eye of his nurse, Tina Wright, of Animal Hospital of Cotati.

The little black cat is well enough after five months of surgeries and skin grafts to be officially adopted.

“I gave it a lot of thought because I have other pets, but what I realized is that he has bonded so strongly to me, I just didn’t want to break that bond,” said Wright, who will adopt the cat.

The cat was found in a cage on June 21, severely burned over 45 percent of his body, on the banks of Paulin Creek in Santa Rosa’s Apple Valley neighborhood. Two teenaged girls were arrested in connection with the crime. (How heinous can this be?! Any of my readers care to donate a cup of gas for some select girls?)

The little cat lost his tail, the tops of his ears and most of the muscle mass on his back and garnered fans around the globe for his fighting spirit.

Even as good wishes continue to arrive for his recovery, his life will now gravitate away from the hospital setting and more toward settling into his home.

At seven months old, Adam may look a bit on the small side, but the folks at Forgotten Felines are expecting him to live a long and happy life. A $40,000 medical fund, built from donations, paid for his care and will continue to pay for any future medical care.

I was ready for a story with a happy ending. And Adam has his own video; go here.

I too am a "dog" person, but that poor little dear, I am so glad he will have a better life now.

People that inflict pain on defenseless animals to me are second only to people who inflict pain on defenseless kids.

Nothing but the death penalty will do.

Make those teen aged girls pay all of the cats medical bills. That would be a suitable punishment.
