A cat came into a shelter with purple paws. The president of the shelter knew exactly what the purple paws meant, and it broke her heart because it meant that the cat had lived through a terrifying history. The cat had been used in dog fights as a victim of barbaric betting games. The colours note which animal the people are betting on as they put the animals in the ring to fight.
It’s a vicious past time that ends up hurting countless animals each year. The president of the shelter felt horrible for the life that the cat had endured, but touched that the animal had made it to her shelter.
