Hello Fellow Catsters! If you have not heard the story of the YouTube kitty, it is a sad one. Last week I was browsing through funny cat videos and came across one in which a 16 year old boy was torturing a cat. Outraged, I asked my fellow Catsters for help (The thread is in Laws and Legislations forum). Of course, they responded and with the help of fellow Dogsters, we were able to pressure the kid to remove the video and also we contacted the parents! The parents have informed us that they are getting the kid the help he needs. The problem is, this video was on YouTube for almost 4 months! Hundreds of users flagged the video to be removed and YouTube took no acton to do so!! We have created a petition asking YouTube to enforce their own codes of conduct by not allowing videos of animal abuse to be shown. Sadly, the video I found was not the only one depicting cruelty to animals. Mr.D has created a video on YouTube asking users to sign the petition, it can be found here- Please sign the petiton and help keep videos of animal abuse out of YouTube!! The petition can be found here- http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/956629011 We only need less than 300 signatures! When we hit 1,000 signatures I will hand deliver this petition to the CEO of YouTube myself!! Thank you!

    I have reported them and Sharkle & a few other video sites that have had horrible animal abuse videos. They turn a blind eye most of the time but this petition is a great idea & I\'m heading off to sign it right this minute. I hope the kid\'s parents are forced to get help for their kid and that it will be court ordered & supervised. Kids that abuse innocent animals grow up to be serial killers. It\'s just too sick! I can never believe there are people who would want to harm an innocent animal...yet it happens globally every second of every day. Don\'t even get me started on the horrifying atrocities that take place in the Phillipines & elsewhere...but it\'s up to all of us to help end it and I applaud your petition. Purrs & headbutts... Kirby, Kody, Keetah & Abby =D>:^:

    We will be signing it right away. My mommy is also going to post the story and link to sign in on her louisvillemojo.com critter group forum. We know lots of other humans from that site will sign as well. I can\'t believe anyone would want to hurt one of us. That\'s horrible. Thanks goodness I have a great mommy and a safe home.
