Treat your pets with kindness

To the editor:

Anyone with a pet in his or her household should make sure they care for their animals.

If you have a pet, you should treat it almost like family. Animals can only do so much for themselves, so you have to do the rest, like getting their food and water and having a good shelter.

There are a lot of sick people out there who take an animal into their care and then start to abuse them. Some people don’t see the abuse because that person tries to keep it from anyone and everyone. When they get tired of abusing the animal, they either kill it or maim it and throw it out.

When they get caught, they usually get a small fine and are let go.

I think they should get a stiff fine and a lot of jail time.

So, if you adopt a pet, be sure you treat it like family, because pets have feelings, too.
