While driving a few weeks ago, one of the keepers at In-Sync Exotics witnessed a vehicle two cars in front of her throw something from the car window.  Our keeper quickly realized that what the driver was throwing baby kittens from the car.  She was unable to get a plate number because there was another car between them.  The incident occurred on 78 at Beltline.

Our keeper and another Good Samaritan stopped.  The other driver stopped traffic so our keeper could assess the situation.  She found one kitten who’d been hit by a car right after it was thrown and likely died on impact, and she was able to rescue one living kitten.  They only found the two.  Both have been taken to In-Sync; the one who didn’t make it will be buried at our Memorial Wall, and we will care for the survivor with all the love and commitment we show all our cats.  The baby has been eating but is understandably frightened.

If you know who committed such a violent, heartless act, please contact your local law enforcement agency. And please, if you end up with unwanted animals; call a local animal rescue group. There are many in the area, and they are willing and able to help. Also, please spay and neuter your pets.

There are now 68 exotic cats calling In-Sync home.  This includes two exceptionally rare white lions, one white tiger, a Brazilian ocelot and two cheetahs.  There are also two lemurs and a coatimundi.  For more information about the sanctuary, visit www.insyncexotics.org.
