Rescue Ink is searching for the killer of the two vacuumed kittens, Examiner

Dena Stapleton, Pet Advocacy

Rescue Ink and the Barbi Twins are dedicated to finding the teen who videotaped himself placing two kittens into a vacuum sealed bag and sealed the bag then sucking the air out of the bag suffocating the kittens.

"With killing two completely innocent and helpless kittens, this teen will eventually move on to larger targets. It may be a cat or dog next time and then move on to a kid, teen or woman. With most serial killers they started out on killing animals and most were cats. Authorities have noticed a pattern to these types of killings, and that they upgrade to people. Sia Barbi, of the Barbi Twins and an avid animal activist, said “We all know that kids who torture animals are criminals in the making. But boys who specifically target cats usually go onto sexual violent crimes against women, this has been proven. These are usually society's rejected sociopaths who are unpopular cowards, typically failing and struggling with sexuality and social issues, but crave their 15 minutes of fame at any sadistic price.” Therefore, this teen that did this is extremely likely to progress to a human. People need to step up and come together to find this teen and anyone else involved to prevent any other killing from happening. If he did it this time on video, how many other times has he done it before ever shooting the video? Makes you wonder. He needs to be stopped before he creates a video of a human victim."

CUTEST - A Shelter Rescue Pet Story

By the Barbi Twins and Ken Wahl,

Hi, I'm Cutest. I'm a rescued shelter cat that owns Ken and Barbi. I want to tell you my story.

One cruel, cold day I asked myself, "Where did I go wrong?" Sitting here at the shelter, with my other "co-abandonees", we all backtracked to "the scene of the crime" as to why we were here.

I was a kitten born among many other animals in some back-yard breeders place. It was cold, over-crowded and dirty. I witnessed many of my family and friends being torn from each other, to be sold to various people, some of whom didn't even like animals. There was NO discrimination. I was lucky and a little girl spotted me and took me to her home. I thought she really loved me.

COZYWOOD, A Katrina Story

by The Barbi Twins

This story is not a story for the faint of heart, though it does have a fairy tale ending. It is about my life. I am a Katrina rescue cat and my current name is Cozy

I was born from a litter of 4, outside the city of New Orleans. New Orleans mostly consisted of single moms like my mom, because of few spay and neuter programs. Though I thought I was a cute kitten, humans in the state of LA still viewed me and my litter-mates as "varmints" and treated all cats as such. Gosh, my relatives were the reason the rat population was down! Nothing like a "thank you" to be born behind the junk yard and thrown in the streets with the other ferals. I quess that is why I am anti-social with other cats, (and dogs), because I had to fend for myself
