If there is one thing I abhor, it is cruelty to cats or cruelty to animals in general.

Cat Cruelty Exposed : Disturbing Video from Peta
Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) is the last facility in the country that still abuses cats for Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) training, in defiance of modern science and ethics. Now PETA has obtained alarming undercover video footage of cats being subjected to these cruel training exercises in a recent WUSTL PALS course conducted in conjunction with St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
In an update, it appears that the University of Washington may have agreed to end this archaic and abusive form of training.
I hope it’s true.
