Rayden and his toothless catA Utah boy's tragedy is pulling at heartstrings across the world, thanks to a letter that the 8-year-old wrote to his local newspaper about his cat's untimely death. Rayden Sazama composed the note after his pet, Toothless, was mistakenly euthanized by the Cache Humane Society - after the boy's father turned up at the shelter to claim the cat.
"Yesterday grown-ups killed my kitty, my best friend, when they weren't supposed to," wrote Rayden.
In the letter, published in The Herald Journal, Rayden lays out the sad turn of events that led to his cat's demise: He and his 5-year-old brother began to worry when Toothless didn't return home for two days, prompting them to go door-to-door through their neighborhood to ask people if they'd seen the cat.
Although none of the neighbors admitted to seeing Toothless, the family would later find out that some neighbors had actually played a part in the kitty's disappearance.
