Vet uses overdose reversal drug to revive kitten



EXTON, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania veterinarian has used an overdose reversal drug to save a kitten that had been given heroin.

Police said Tuesday they arrested the suburban Philadelphia man who abused the cat.

West Chester resident James Myers faces charges including animal cruelty and drug possession. He's in custody and can't be reached for comment. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Police in West Whiteland Township say an officer spotted Myers' car parked in the middle of a street Sunday with a door open.

The officer says under the door he saw an injured black kitten with a rope around its neck and several teeth knocked out. Police say they found bundles of heroin and dozens of needles in the car.

Authorities say the veterinarian revived the cat with Narcan, an antidote for opium-based drug overdoses.

Wat he needs is to have a rope around his neck, several HUGE men to beat him and knock three or four of his teeth. He should then be stripped naked, flogged, and forced to get on his knees and beg for the cat's forgiveness.

No defenseless animal should be made to suffer - as for overdosing the perp - no - let him go through withdrawal alone, naked and afraid - on one of those deserted islands that they make reality shows on - lets see how he survives - and let others who do this realize what they'll go through too - And I think all drug dealers should have to do the same. Let them all fend for themselves on deserted islands - and the heck with supporting them in prison

Fine him and throw him in jail for animal cruelty . He is so disgusting to do that to a baby kitten.
He should never be allowed to have any animals near him.

All cats are beautiful. So sad that there are 'humans' who would even THINK of doing someting like that to one. Or to ANY creature smaller than itself!

This guy needs to be a cat toy for some severly bored tigers. The cats shouldn't be allowed to kill him... just mess him up real bad so that he can be revived and appreciate the pain that he's in.
