Re: “Cat Lovers” [May 19].

How can anyone claim to be cat lovers who keeps them locked up without fire protection? It’s just a miracle that all didn’t die.

Recently one half million hybrid mice died in a fire in Maine. What kind of respect do we deserve, as we allow things (of such slight care) to happen to the helpless?

I say bring back the guillotine!
