Now Mike Vick Wants to Get Rid of Cats, Too

12/16/2008 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Vick admitted to killing dogs that didn't perform; now he's trying to dump a couple of cats that he's not going to be needing anytime soon.



A new doc in his bankruptcy case shows Vick is trying to unload a couple of World Cat boats estimated to be worth around $165K for the pair -- he needs the cash to pay back his debts, say lawyers.

Best line in the filing, a Hail Mary of laughable proportions: "Upon his release, the Debtor [that's MV] ... will seek to rebuild his life and professional football career."

He is not going broke. He is just securing his money cause he doesn’t know if he will ever play again or where his next paycheck will come from. I am against cruelty to any type of animal but I think we need to look a little deeper than his "dog fighting charges". I believe the cruel things has done are a bi-product of what is going on inside of his head. He is truly a f*up individual and he needs mental and emotional help. Something must have happened to him to make him act inhumane. I hope he gets the mental treatment he needs while he is in prison. His behavior is not something that just "stops" when one is caught.

Er, don't look now, but the boat market is in the $hitter also. He is in tough shape financially because he will only get a fraction of what he paid for all this stuff.

Sure, I hope that no one takes back this losing piece of garbage on any team!

..................Phe @ 12:02 pm................I agree that Vick is not quite right in the mind............However, he can possibly be into a halfway house by March due to the stupid Gerald Poindexter of Va................and depending on how fast the prison board moves due to pressure from Vick's attorney............The newspaper states that Vick has 16 million in assets and 20 million in debt............and Vick hasn't fully explained, by accounting standards, where all the cash withdrawals went............So, everything depends on his return to the NFL.............With these time frames, there will be no mental health services..................Vick is what he is...............The NFL does not need this player..........or any of the other questionable players................If all of America wrote one letter, 303 million, wow, I think Goodell could then ban him...................Will you help write one letter to Roger Goodell at the NFL office?.............A lot of people will thank you........................

People just need to stick together and refuse to listen to anyone justify Vick in any way.
Vick is evil and there is no excuse that he can use to redeem himself.
Try taking care of the abused dogs that Vick and people like Vick torment.
Vick has beat the character, the soul and very life out of dogs for no other reason but sadism.

I'm sorry but I was always taught by my bible to forgive. How many times according to the bible 7 x 7 x 70. Micheal Vic did his time. If the people who reinstated Lenodard Little, Michael Irving, Terrell Owens, Warren Moon, Pacman Jones, and many countles others then so be it...... Like everyone else he deserves to be forgiven if he asks for it. It is not for me to judge...... Its up to the man upstairs.... He decides all of our fates.......

He made the choices he made and messed up his life, he should not be able to ever play in the NFL.. he's only sorry because he got caught, went to jail no longer apart of the NFL and is flat broke. If he had not hit rock bottom he would not have been so sorry

Sandra, could you repost that address where we can all deluge the NFL with letters about what a terrible mistake it would be to ignore lifelong fans (like me) and give that beast Vick any kind of job offer?

Max61, Sandra, Angela...we have to keep the pressure up in any way we can, including posting here. If Vick gets out and any team sniffs around him with interest, it's imperative to let that team and the NFL know just how we (and lots and lots and lots of others) feel. Remember how John Gibson lost his job because of the things he said about Heath Ledger? That was because lots of people wrote to his bosses to complain...and that cost him his job! The same can be accomplished here. I know it.

........Stl chic @ 1:21 pm..........Why say you are sorry?......You meant all you said, didn't you?........Ok, your math indicates 3,430 times to say, " I forgive you"................Hmmmmmm, Vick has broken 12 civil laws against soceity, ............4 financial laws against banks, ...............20 financial laws against various businesses, he personally guarnteed loans for, .........................54 humanity laws against dogs, ...............................3 societial laws against children, ...................One thousand moral laws by lying to the enitre world about himself, ......................So, that leaves about 2,337 more times you want to say to Vick, "I forgive you".....................Hmmmmmm..............I suggest you read a broader selection of books.....................The list of unacceptable men you state, that got back in the NFL had nothing to do with Vick unless they were at Vicks dog fighting events..................Vick is soley responsible for Vick................And If Vick just "asks" to be forgiven, he will therefore, be forgiven......................Hmmmmmmmmm..............Gerald Poindexter must read the same material that you read.........Poindexter gave Vick a suspended and dropped sentence just for saying, "I did it, yes, I treated dogs cruelly"........................If you are part of society, and society is wronged, YOU MUST, judge for the good of the entire group you belong to...................On the top floor of the NFL building, is the office of Roger Goodell, he is the man upstairs that will decide the fate of Vick..................Please write to Roger Goodell, commissioner NFL and tell him to judge Vick, not worthy of re-instatement...........a lot of people will thank you.............................

Max 61 - It doesn't mean an actual number. Its acually stated 7 x 7 x 70 x700 and so on. Okay now let me quote you correctly....If you are part of a society and society is wronged...You must judge for the good of the entire group you belong too.... Okay I believe that just set us back centuries.... Killing Indians (Justified) the group wanted their land, Slavery in the South (Justified) the group wanted their cotton picked, and so on. Are you nuts......Bottom line we are citizens of the U.S.A. we voted are politicians in office and in turn they appointed judges who sentenced Mr. Vic..... When he is released and has done his time he deserves and is entitled to the chance to put his life back together. That's the Amercian way honey.... and all we can do is hope he has learned. LIFE LIBERTY and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
