He fed kittens to the snakes...

I am really not sure how I feel about this. On one hand I more or less understand but on the other hand I just think "OMG kittens!?!?!"

There is a neighbor that everyone doesnt like. I am new here so I have no clue why. I asked one of my other neighbors why people didnt like him

I guess about 5 years ago he found a litter of feral kittens. He brought them to the humane society but they wanted to charge him $35 per kitten as a fee to take them in. (They wouldnt believe he found them they thought he was just trying to dump kittens). He was going to do it but then they told them that they were at capacity and the kittens would be euthanized. 

Instead he took them home and fed them to his snakes. He didnt see it as any different than if he went and bought some rats, these kittens were going to die anyway. He did an at home euthanasia (Using CO2 like he does with the rats) 

I guess I dont see the reason to hate him. Sure it is different and weird but it isnt like he goes out of his way to do it.

I couldn't feed a rat to a snake and rats freak me out. I definitely couldn't feed a snake kittens.

I understand the circle of life and all, but I'd rather not participate so directly.

Well, it's sad but he did what the society was going to do anyway. He tried to do the right thing. :0 (

I am interested because I honestly had never thought about a situation like this. I figured it would get interesting.

I love cats but I don't really have a problem with that. They were going to be euthanized anyway, might as well go to good use.

The people getting oogy about it are being ridiculous. And are full of shit if they didn't take any kittens in.

He fed his snakes. I don't see the issue.

I used to feed bunnies to my ex's snake. It's the same damn thing. When the snake got too big for bunnies, we fed him grown chickens and grown rabbits. Cats/kittens are the same thing.

That's kind of effed up, but it's not like he fed them to the snakes when they were alive.

I have a rabbit and have no issue with that. That's life

The snake would eat them in the wild anyway
