@RockStar33:  I have a cat that had issues like this and I got her through it, this breaks my heart.

Its alot of hard and gross work, but I never even thought of giving up on her.

I’m sorry your going through this, can you call the shelter she took her to and see if you can go get her before its too late?

@RockStar33:  This type of stories make me so ANGRY! Shame on your co-worker. I don’t think I would be able to keep my mouth shut in this sort of situation. My thought process is that if you take ona pet, you take it on for life, just like a child, If you aren’t ready to make the proper sacrifices you shouldn’t get a pet!

We have the same issue in the States, especially with cats. A few years ago a homeless cat unbeknownst to me gave birth to kittens in my garage.  I had to practicaly BEG the local shelter to take the cats and only after I insisted that I was not the owner of the mother or father of the cat did they agree. In addition to the food I brought to the shelter I also was expected to make a donation, so I gave them $25/kitten.

@RockStar33:  There are just some people on this Earth that don’t get it…and because they don’t, they should avoid bringing animals into their lives because it always ends baldy for both parties.

A cat like that would have been a lovely addition to any farm or argicultural home, because they can be outside and in strucutures where a little extra shit isn’t going to hurt anyone, but are still safe and warm and can certainly come into the big house if they want to….

I don’t understand how people just give up on a living thing like that, because when it comes to pets, that’s a forever agreement as far as I’m concerned, and I’ve sent my share of pets to the clearning, but that’s to end their pain or suffering and nothing else…this cat just was not getting what it needed and that is dumb.

I’ve limped and loved all kinds of challenged or damaged animals through a problem, I even had a horse that was literally afraid of the wind….try making something like that work, but we figured it out together, cause that is just what you do.

People can be so heartless.  ANY animal takes time to properly train, and clearly she was not up for the time or committment that raising a pet endures.  I don’t blame you for being angry.

@RockStar33:  She brought it to the shelther in Toronto that said it wouldn’t kill the cat and they still did? I find behaviour like that disgusting as well. If you adopt an animal, you are making a commitment to that animal for the span of its life. If you choose not to meet your commitment, you should find someone who will. Terrible.
