Justice for Cat Reportedly Scalded to Death With Hot Liquid

Target: Anthony Lawrence III, District Attorney for Jackson County, Mississippi

Goal: Demand that the people who reportedly scalded a cat with hot liquid, leading to its death, receive the maximum penalty possible for this horrific crime.

A viral video reportedly showed two people scalding a cat with hot liquid. The cat was later found dead underneath a house. Demand that justice is served for this innocent cat.

“It was curled in a fetal position. Very sad. It looked like a nice cat, in good shape,” stated Helene Hicks, an animal rescue volunteer. She retrieved the cat’s body only a day after a viral video reportedly showed a woman pouring boiling liquid over it. The necropsy showed that the cat suffered thermal burns over the majority of its body. It was found not far from where it was burned.

Mass Point police have identified the people in the video. The suspects will be charged with aggravated animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that these people receive the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear District Attorney Lawrence,

A viral video reportedly showed a cat being scalded with boiling liquid. It later died from its injuries. We demand that justice is served for this innocent animal.

“Who in their right mind would ever think that it’s okay to treat an animal like this! If the tables were turned and it was you being treated like this you would want justice!” This was just one Facebook comment on the viral video that shocked many. The video reportedly showed a woman pouring the liquid on the frightened cat while a man taunted the anguished animal.

This abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    Anyone who kills a cat and makes a sport or a viral video of it needs to be in jail.

  2. I say scald the people that did this and let them know what it feels like. Sick animals is what they are. Throw them in jail and throw the key away. People like that do not deserve to be out on the streets.

  3. Gille Amaral says:

    OMG please please make this a long term jail sentence and a steep fine. This is so horrible. This kind of murderous behavior needs to be stomped out. The only way is to make the punishment fit the crime.

  4. Here’s one individual gradually upgrading to be the mass murderer in the up coming future. This is how the most of the serial killers get their promotion to be such. At the beginning they committed abusing and torturing the small, defenseless, voiceless animals. Experiencing the Blood baths and poor souls sufferings the evil minded individuals gain the power. The final analysis is another monster is in the making.


    • totally agree with u no one wants vermin like this on the planet

    • John couldn’t agree wirh you more. Except to make it last for along time. These kind of scum can also take the place of poor animals in all those horrible tests where they put toxic chemicals in rabbits eyes etc.

  6. I am ready,willing and able to help enact then required death penalty on any POS who abusers/kills animals!

  7. Gene Sengstake says:

    Find the perpetrators and euthanize them on the spot. No need to waste time when dealing with this kind of human garbage – – –

  8. MAXIMUM CHARGES ENFORCED! Enough of people walking free from animal cruelty. TAXPAYERS demand JUSTICE! Do YOUR JOB!

  9. pierre chantelauze says:

    Such horrors we see every day , in every country . This
    indicates humans have no right to dominate the planet any more .
    Peace in Heaven for this sweet innocent soul .

  10. Pieces of filth such as they are deserve nothing but sheer, unadulterated pain. Trust me, I have a vivid imagination and they would pay dearly for being the scum of the earth! After such torture which btw could take weeks on end, of course they would be killed and their filthy carcasses dumped in a landfill.

  11. Nikki Halper says:

    These are not human beings, they’re vile disgusting pieces of filth that need to be exterminated, but they’ll probably just get a slap on the wrist because the courts deem animals property that can be used as the owners see fit, and this narrow minded thinking has to change,because they’re living breathing sweet natured,and innocent creatures that deserve love and respect not cruelty, it’s way overdo for these animals to get the justice they deserve, and the monsters that do these horrific acts can be given harsher sentences to send a message to other potential animal abusers that this will not be tolerated, because unless our system changes the way they deal with this problem, then nothing will change for the animals, and that’s just wrong

  12. When are we going to kill these jerks as they deserve. They should die the same damn way or worse!!

  13. Diane Bonenfant says:

    There are so many cases of cruelty every day all over the world. Humans do this presumably because they think they can get away with it. And they can with the current laws and enforcement levels. Better legislation with harsher penalties is necessary to minimize this kind of cruelty. Nonhuman animals are people too. They deserve justice.

  14. brigitte st jean says:

    Find this fucking bastard. Throw boiling water all over him.

  15. put this guy in prison in Michigan City, Indiana. they are allowed to have cats there and you do not mess with cats! this guy won’t last long at all.

  16. just exactly how many assholes are there in this world?

  17. why would it NOT be a nice cat???

  18. Laurie Miskell says:

    “People speak sometimes about the “bestial” cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.”
    ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    This says it all….

  19. District Attorney Lawrence – PLEASE do not let this become an “it’s just a cat” case. That poor animal suffered terror and pain that no living thing should feel. How long did it take for the cat to die? How much pain was it in?
    This is a case of very sick and EVIL people – posting this torture on social media shows exactly where their minds were.

    Show these two monsters the same mercy they showed this poor cat!

    And Thank You, Helene Hicks, for doing what you do. You’re a brave and loving soul.

  20. Mark Mansfield says:

    Had this happened under federal, rather than state jurisdiction, the perpetrators would have been charged with a Class A Felony, punishable by up to life in prison and a $100,000 fine.

    Any guess as to what the monsters who did this, and we taped on video, will be facing insofar as time behind bars? Another example of why animal abuse and cruelty needs to be a federal crime, regardless of jurisdiction.

    Ms. McCue, please provide updates, specifically as to whether this case goes to trial, and what, if any, punishment is handed down.
