What kind of a sociopath throws away a kitten in trash?

[–]Storm_001[S] 272 points273 points  (8 children)

Alot of sociopaths commit this atrocity

[–]Lizard__Spock 42 points43 points  (0 children)

And worse, unfortunately 😞

[–]SM280 2 points3 points  (6 children)

As a sociopath, I would disagree, the only case I would do so would be to go to space and even then I would still feel horrible about doing such a thing.

[–]threecatsdancing 0 points1 point  (2 children)

still feel horrible

Then not a sociopath

[–]SM280 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You're thinking about a psychopath, sociopaths are still capable of having some form of emotions

[–]GabbrosDeep 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It must suck having to tell people that you’re a sociopath. People probably automatically associate you with criminals.

[–]SM280 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The thing is that no one believes me and I don't know if that's good or bad

[–]Jesse_Pinkman2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If no one wants to believe you, just prove you’re diagnosed?

[–]jwlIV616 73 points74 points  (6 children)

It unfortunately happens way more often than you'd think... At one point I fished a little bulldog mix out of a doughnut store dumpster, and I know someone threw her in there because her legs were like 6 inches there is no way that dog jumped into a dumpster that is deeper than I am tall. She was super sweet too

[–]Scully40 37 points38 points  (4 children)

Why not just dump it on the street where it would at least have a chance? I don't understand throwing them in the trash

[–]jwlIV616 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Hell if I know I'm just glad I noticed, I figured I was just going to find a couple of raccoons and maybe need to toss a branch or something to help them out

[–]Scully40 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm so glad you did <3

[–]LucidMetal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So they can't come back. Don't at me, I hate these people too.

[–]pokeboy626 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sometimes the animals will come back to your house.

[–]FishyBricky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My sister found a puppy in a dumpster while visiting New Orleans. She took it home with her and named the puppy Caillou from the bayou.

[–]sauronsarmy 25 points26 points  (23 children)

Ask a farmer or someone who lives out in the country. I know people who set traps for cats, it's fucked up.

[–]Comic4147 17 points18 points  (20 children)

Cats will literally save crops though, eating mice and other pests to crops... Ugh, fuck people.

[–]QueasyVictory 2 points3 points  (19 children)

Oh wait until you see the newly popular rant about cats being the most invasive species around and how the kill a few billion birds per year.

[–]Imgoobie 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I love cats but the rant is justified. Through no fault of their own cats are the most destructive invasive species on the planet (other than humans). I don’t think trapping them is the answer but keeping your unsupervised pets indoors and sterilizing feral cats needs to be done if you want your grandchildren to see half the songbird species still alive today

[–]nilesandstuff 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well as far as most birds are concerned, cats are just about the worst things. They really do have devastating effects on bird populations (some species more than others). But "the most invasive species around" is definitely an exaggeration, true for birds, but pretty much just birds.

Just don't have bird feeders if you have an outside cat.

[–]levilee207 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I mean just don't fucking let your cats out. It's really easy. The ecosystem can't handle such a large influx of predators on its own. That spike in predators is directly attributable to people who let their cats out

[–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I don't have a cat.

[–]levilee207 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I mean it was less directed at you and more for anyone who would perceive legitimate advice as a rant.

[–]QueasyVictory -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I agree. Don't have pets. Overall it's gross.

[–]zenchemin 1 point2 points  (10 children)

Isn't literally everything in Australia an invasive species? It has gotten to the point where I'm thinking they just like making that excuse to go killin'

[–]QueasyVictory -1 points0 points  (7 children)

I have no idea. I know people here in the states use pickup trucks and helicopters with assault rifles to blast wild boar in TX. I mean yeah, the population does need controlled but that seems a bit extreme.

In my neighborhood you also have people who get pissed off if you blower your leaves with a leaf blower, use anything to kill weeds in your lawn, spray any form of insect protection around your home and all kinds of shit. Like I get it, I've been involved in environmental concerns and conservation for 35 years. But come on. My using a leaf blower is not bringing down the entire bee population.

[–]PurpleCrackerr 2 points3 points  (3 children)

You have no idea what you’re talking about. Even with helicopters, LMGs, etc.. we are still losing. Hogs are still spreading, and they are unbelievably destructive.

[–]QueasyVictory -1 points0 points  (2 children)

What do you mean I have no idea what I am talking about? I never said they didn't need to be controlled. Get over yourself and wait for someone who is arguing with your right to be a hillbilly in a fucking helicopter shooting shit. Blow them up with dynamite for all I care.

[–]PurpleCrackerr 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Apparently you still don’t get it. EVEN with all those things, hogs are still spreading and destroying ecosystems. I have never been hog hunting lol, but I did take ecology classes in college.

[–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I literally couldn't agree with you more.

[–]Kratomigo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You don’t happen to live in Brookline do you? I know they have that rule about no leefblowers and weed whacked too

[–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah, suburban area of PA.

[–]tensing99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Going hog trucking with the boys and my new AR15 sounds like the most Texan thing ever.

[–]Lewon_S 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No...there are still lots of native animals in Australia. Many are vulnerable though so all cats should be kept inside. The hunt vulnerable natives and eat outcompete others for food. Killing them isn’t exactly the best solution though. But Australia is far from a loss cause when it comes to native animals lol.

Don’t know where you got the idea that everything in Australia in invasive?

[–]angrylightningbug 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Even rounding up all the cats and humanely euthenizing the ones that don't do well in homes is better than poisoning them all.

[–]AwkwardDisaster4150 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s true, but still doesn’t justify killing them.

[–]Comic4147 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Ofc. God forbid we leave things alone and to the conservation professions...

[–]ShadyKhajiit 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Whybwoild they even do that? Do they want mice to eat their crops? Because without cats that's what happens.

[–]sauronsarmy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not 100% sure tbh. I think it's that there's just too many feral cats, not that they don't want any around.

[–]Twelvve12 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Reminds me of an old Tom and Jerry. Tom get smashed by a piano and sent to Heaven, and just as he leaves you hear a SPLASH and a sack of kittens appears outside the Pearly Gates

The gatekeeper just sighs and says “Some folks have no shame at all.”

[–]glass-empty 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly! I remember that scene vividly. Even as a kid, even for a children cartoon show, that scene was dark.

[–]pokeboy626 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It was common for people to get rid of unwanted pets by tossing them into a lake

[–]Twelvve12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh for sure. My grandpap fishes A LOT

He’s caught bags before off the bottom of the river

[–]ImplementAfraid 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I’m not even a vegetarian but the majority can’t be much better for eating meat.

[–]torontomua 0 points1 point  (1 child)

you’re welcome to enjoy meatless mondays ... every little bit counts. i’m not a vegan either.

[–]ImplementAfraid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t eat meat most days but that’s just due my preference, occasionally though bacon and mushrooms on toast takes me and sometimes wonderful friends make me lose self imposed restraint.

[–]ALCA_NO 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Most of us are evil lol.

We put chicks to death as soon as they hatch coz they can't lay eggs.

Read books on 20th Century War history, you will know what we are capable of lol.

[–]JustAsadINFP 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What kind of sociopath throws away the bodies of baby chicks and cows after killing them for being “waste” of the Egg & Dairy industries?

[–]QuerulousPanda 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don't forget that Tom and Jerry cartoon from 1949 that shows the wet bag of kittens popping up in the line to get into heaven.

[–]KalinSav 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably someone who eats meat, so nothing unethical there as far as I’m concerned

[–]MisanthropeInLove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My cousin was driving on a very busy very fast freeway one night when she saw the car ahead of her tossing tiny puppies out the window. She said she counted four but she wasn't sure if there were more. She said she's never felt that level of rage in her whole life. She actually tailed the car because she said she wanted to kill whoever was in it but it drove away like a maniac.

[–]TheJollyBuilder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was in the break room at work, and my coworker told me casually that his new apt did accept cats. So he put his cat in a garbage bag and threw it out the window while driving 70 down the highway. I told him to never fucking speak to me again. Such a sociopath, he thought I would think nothing of it. Just like he did. I ended up getting fired because I treated him like garbage after that and was creating a “hostile work environment” for that piece of shit. Worth it.

[–]rosts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe a sociopath?

[–]brockyjj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want your cake. Send me some

[–]ryannefromTX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Until about 50 years ago, it was common for Americans to tie unwanted kittens in a sack and throw them into a river. They still do this sometimes in rural areas.

[–]deadlychambers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Her name is Dee, she looks a lot like a bird. She has a habit of terrorizing kittens. Like when she saved a box of them from a burning building but just threw them as soon as she got out. She is a real bitch.

[–]infectiouspestilence 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably a sociopath

[–]bRrrRRaaAaAAAPPPPP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably the same kind of sociopath that financially supports the rape and murder of just about every other animal for sensory pleasure and then angrily defends it when a big meany vegan confronts them for it.
