PLEASE CROSS POST TO ANY AND ALL LISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know that this is a collie list but right now I think everyone needs to hear this.
Alot of us also own cats and right at this moment I am devastated to say that I, my daughter and my mother in law are in mourning over the loss of a beautiful little kitten named Kanga. He was only 5 months old and was raised by us from the time he was three weeks old and a wild kitten.
My mother in law has one of those automatic litter boxes that sweeps the litter into a containment system. This litter box killed this poor baby about an hour ago. He had his neck broken (at least we hope he went that quick because I hate to envision the alternatives) by the sweeping mechanism.
Please warn everyone you know about this danger. The machine was supposed to have a sensor that stops it when the cat goes into the box but unfortunately for Kanga it didn't. Now we no longer have this beautiful little boy. He was so full of life and just loved everyone.
PLEASE WARN EVERYONE EVEN IF THEY DON'T HAVE A CAT YET!!! THEY MAY SOMEDAY.
We have a call into the company to tell find out if this happen before and what can be done about making these boxes safer.
Please say a little prayer for Kanga. He is at the Rainbow Bridge now and I know we will see him again but right now our hearts are being ripped out.
Thanks for listening
