Woman sentenced over goth kittens

Postby Teo » Thu Apr 15, 2010 1:26 pm

A woman has been sentenced to six months house arrest for trying to sell 'gothic kittens' with piercings on the internet.

35-year-old Holly Crawford, of Pennsylvania, was also ordered to shut her dog grooming business for more than two years after being convicted of animal cruelty in February.
Prosecutors said that Crawford gave the three black kittens ear and neck piercings because 'she thought it was neat' to sell goth kittens on the web.
Crawford insisted that she used sterilised equipment and checked carefully on the kittens' health. She said she had started piercing kittens on a whim, when she first decided to pierce the ears and neck of a stray kitten she took in last autumn and named Snarley Monster.
She was offering her pierced kittens for sale online for hundreds of dollars when authorities were tipped off by charity People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
In her defence, attorneys argued that parents allow children to get pierced ears at young ages, and it would be wrong to hold cat owners to a higher standard.
Gartley allowed her to keep her pets, which include a dog, three cats and three snakes.

Once the things are put online, the whole world will know :P

How can she compare piercing cats and dogs with allowing children to get pierced ears? Two different things.
