  • Neither of them looked at the cat dish? and saw it was empty? I have a Yorkie and if I see her dish is empty I give her food and same with dh...there is no excuse other then not paying attention or even giving a damm

  • Poor kitty! How hard can it be to say to your spouse "hey,did you feed the cat today?" or look at the dish and see it is empty,. I have 2 cats (who eat dry cat food) and I check the bowl each day to see how full it is and if I need to put more in.

  • What a couple of negligent idiots. That really pisses me off--how do you not realize your animal is STARVING to death? It would have been going crazy at first, meowing and begging to be fed...then it would have become listless...at the very least, they would have thought the cat was ill.
    How utterly moronic and out of touch with your life do you have to be to starve your own pet to death?

  • I definitely think Animal Control should be involved in this! How can they not know the cat wasn 't being fed. That's just ridiculous.
