A five-week-old kitten, affectionately known as a€?Tuff Tommya€? by his caretakers, sits in a cage at the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society.
When a man threw a five-week-old kitten from the window of his car Friday, he didn't know the vehicle behind him belonged to an undercover officer with the Columbus Police Department.
Animal Control Officer Robert Davis, who was called by CPD to the scene, said the kitten landed in a ditch just off Highway 45 North near Plantation Drive and Huckleberry Drive, and though it seemed to be in shock, it was otherwise unscathed. The driver, whose name was not released, told Davis the kitten had meowed incessantly all day and the previous night, and it was getting on his nerves, so he threw it out the passenger window. In addition to giving the driver a $200 citation for animal cruelty, Davis also lectured him about the poor example he was providing his son.


The male kitten, a medium-haired tabby, was taken to the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society and became available for adoption today. The kitten has been weaned and is eating and drinking, with no signs of injury, said Karen Johnwick, director of the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society. Columbus resident Heather Reynolds said Monday evening that during the 10 years she worked as a veterinary technician, she saw several cases, but the one she will never forget is the Siamese kitten thrown from the window of a moving car. In 2011 Mississippi enacted felony penalties for some acts of animal cruelty against dogs and cats. Catfish Alley Magazine features the people, places, food and events weall love about the South.


Dispatch-sponsored Imagination Library provides a free book each month to Lowndes County children under the age of 5. Though it survived, the kitten suffered neurological defects due to the head trauma it experienced.
Under the law, a person convicted of second offense aggravated cruelty to a dog or cat within five years of the first offense could receive a fine up to $5,000 and one to five years' imprisonment.
