Augiec, I am just trying to see if I understood you right..are you that that it's no "big deal" to bury a cat alive because it's "just a cat"?

That owner didn't make SURE that the poor cat was dead in the first place. What an idiot!

It is not unknown for severely injured animals to appear to be dead. 100 years ago there were people making caskets with ways to ring bells above ground since it was not unheard of for people to appear to be dead for several days while still being alive,

The right thing to do would have been to take the cat to the nearest vet or animal shelter, some place that would have had the means to exam it to determine the extent of the cat's injuries. It was probably in shock so that's why it appeared to be still. This person was just incredibly stupid.

I hope he doesn't get the cat back when it's well enough to leave the animal hospital. He doesn't deserve to have a pet.

Unfortunately, animals don't have the same rights as humans. The rights they do have are
often not accessed because the neglect, abuse, torture is kept private. If A baby was buried alive, the baby would never be returned to their parents, but this poor animal will most likely
be returned to it's zombie brain owner.

Poor poor baby. I hope he has a full recovery.

I don't know why people automatically don't believe the owner. There have been plenty of cases of medical professionals pronouncing people dead and then whoops they weren't.

If he really wanted to be a despicable human being, no one would ever have to know that the cat reappeared.

And you're just a primate. Would you like to be buried alive?

Just because it's obviously not your pet of choice doesn't mean it should be buried alive. I assume you're a dog person. How would you feel about somebody burying your dog alive? And if you feel badly for it, what if we tell you "It's just a dog"? I love animals of all sorts, and I hate to see them suffer. I saw on another thread of yours that you have small children. I feel sorry for them, because they're going to be raised to have no compassion for animals, it sounds like, or at least none for cats.
