Approximately one month ago, some friends of my daughter were driving home toward Paxton when someone threw a box out the car window. They stopped and picked up the box and inside it was a very tiny puppy. They took the puppy home and it is now a very much loved member of the family.

This morning my daughter called as she was on her way to work. She was crying because someone had thrown two small kittens out on the highway and they had been run over.

There are several shelters here that could place those precious animals. How can people be so cruel to small things that have no voice? Well, I do have a voice and I think anyone who does something like that is beneath contempt. I want to believe that sometime there will be payback for their acts of cruelty.
