Abandonment of newborns
Someone dumped two newborn kittens outside a volunteer's home on Friday. People who abandon cats are already callous and horrible, but to dump newborns? These two kittens hadn't even opened their eyes - at that age, most can't make without their mothers. They estimated the kittens were less than a day old which in all probability means that the person who dumped them has the mother cat at home.
It never fails to amaze me that people will not sterilise and then dump the kittens after. Clearly they didn't have an intention to keep the kittens - so why not sterilise the mother earlier? Also, if the kittens were born, if they're dumped as newborns, chances are they're not going to make it. Why not let the mother cat nurse for a while at the very least?
These people are cowards of the worst sort - they don't want the responsibility of having the kittens' deaths (and lives) on their hands, so they just pass it on to someone else. Plus it's so preventable - just sterilise! Some people continually abandon without sterilising - the kittens look the same litter after litter, so it's not like it was a one-off mistake.
