PETA is terrible.  I donated to them for years before I found
out what they do to feral cats.   I've horror stories about how
they are out to exterminate all the feral cats they can. When
I heard about the things they do to cats I e-mailed them and
they admitted it.  They said the cats were killed to spare them
any suffering in the future!!

I'm so sorry you had this happen to Smokey Jo and Butterball.
I know you must feel just terrible about it.
