The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And keep the puppies out of the blender

According to legend, there's more than one way to skin a cat; when asked, I generally reply that I prefer a belt sander.

This, however, is beyond the pale:

A New York man faces charges for allegedly throwing five kittens into a hot frying pan. The kittens are about six or seven weeks old. Authorities say they were slightly burned and are expected to recover.

The incident occurred in Buffalo after the apartment's occupant began cooking pork chops in hot oil. When he left the kitchen, a visitor put two of the kittens in the pan. The visitor then threw one kitten on the floor and wiped the other on the wall. After that he put the other three in the pan.

Police say [they] expect the suspect to be charged with animal cruelty.

Or, at the very least, to be spritzed with Pam and rolled onto a cookie sheet.

Methinks that visitor won't be asked back for pork chops very soon.
