    Trooper, the kitten whose publicized story of being tossed from a moving car and rescued by a motorist inspired thousands of dollars in donations, has died. He was 8 weeks old.
    Trooper seemed on the mend less than two weeks ago. But he underwent surgery Thursday to install a catheter, said Gabrielle Reed, a licensed veterinarian technician at Mount Pleasant Veterinary Clinic, where he was being treated.
    The kitten stopped breathing shortly after the procedure.
    "We performed CPR for 10 to 15 minutes," Reed said. "We couldn't resuscitate him."
    Trooper, who got his name from veterinary staff, was thrown onto Route 168 South on the last morning of July. Michele Laney of Moyock, N.C., said she stopped to try to save the barely 1-1/2-pound feline, delivered him to the nearest animal clinic.
    She'd hoped to take him home late last week. But the kitten apparently had suffered internal injuries that were not detected in initial X-rays.
    "Because he was so tiny, they weren't really detectable," Reed said. "He was too small to handle them."
    Trooper's kidneys were failing and both of his lungs had collapsed, she said.
    He was a favorite at the clinic and grew a bit spoiled by so much attention. His story made him famous - well-wishers donated so much money for his $2,000-plus surgery that the vet's office had to stop accepting them.
    Reed said the veterinarian, David Banta, is deciding what to do with that money now. They plan to give it back to the community, she said.
    Reed, who was Trooper's primary caregiver, said the days since his death have been fuzzy.
    "He got through what is known in medicine as the hardest days. I allowed myself to get attached," she said. "My heart is broken."

    Give it to the animal community since this is what the donators wanted....to help an animal. Don't use it to buy pencils or notebooks for school kids or even for the food pantry. We wanted to help an animal and I expect the money to be used for that purpose even if we couldn't save this poor kitten.

    This is so sad and I hope the fucker who did it rots in hell.

    They didn't catch the monster who did this, did they? Poor baby.

    I hope the money will go to help other animals now.

    The money should be spent on other homeless needy animals, with so many a$$holes who are mean to animals everywhere, I am sure it will be needed again.

    I agree, I hope it goes to animal charities/shelters, as that is why so many kind ppl donated money.

    So sad

    Shit, I knew better than to open this thread.

    I don't even know what to say about the asshole that did this to this poor animal. There is no Hell hot enough, nor punishment cruel or unusual enough to satisfy me.
