If you thought animals had it easier than humans, this story might have you thinking again. A man in Italy was just arrested for adopting more than 15 cats. So far just another tale of animal hoarding, right? Wrong. The man, known only as Francesco F., was adopting said cats so that he could kill them, cook them, and serve them to friends. I am so glad to be talking about this on an empty stomach.
Luckily, Frankie won't be doing this again any time soon. He was procuring his fur-covered meals from local animal rescue shelters -- which is truly heart-breaking news. The cats in shelters have already been through so much -- do they really need to cross paths with a guy so depraved? Answer: Absolutely not. Eventually, a shelter became suspicious and sprung a surprise visit on the guy. What they found had him in cuffs in minutes.
