To the editors:
The photo on the front page of your January 5, 1990 issue is absolutely disgusting.
Since the cat is conscious & unshaven, it appears it is about to be tortured rather than operated upon.
The picture on pg. 31 would have made a much less-offending cover photo, why didn't you use it?
I can only hope you weren't trying for some kind of sick humor with the aforementioned photo, 'cause it isn't the least bit funny.
