Others in south Miami-Dade County are telling similar stories. A woman whose Siamese mix cat, Caesar, was killed and mutilated didn’t want her name published.
“This person killed my cat. He doesn’t need to know anything else about me,” she said. “I don’t know if it’s a gang initiation thing or a satanic ritual thing, but to do what he’s doing, he has to be extremely sick.”
The month-long cat-killing spree has police concerned.
When I read this story, this hadith from Bukhari immediately popped into my mind:
Abdullah bin Umar (ra) said that the Prophet (saws) said, “A woman was tortured and was put in Hell because of a cat which she had kept locked till it died of hunger.”
If people truly feared Allah (swt) and the punishment that could await them on the day of judgment, wouldn’t the world be a much better place?
