bro i thought of doing it initially, cos i thot it wld die n i wanted to shorten its pain.... but when i realise that it is going to live, i will take care of it n take care of it well...reason being i was the one that caused his injury. it was no fault of his that he was injured. how can i bring myself to kill it?
