I'm Just Fuming!

Post by Psalmbook on Thu May 26, 2011 9:20 pm

My oldest daughter just moved back home(no, that's not why I'm angry Very Happy
She left her cat w/ one of her neighbors till she could find a new home for it(it does not get along w/ our kitty). She paid the lady to take care of the cat, gave it a full bag of litter & food. Well, she went to pick it up after 3 weeks. The cat was in it's carry case & smelled really bad. We got the cat out & it was covered in poop, missing a ton of hair & super skinny. We believe this lady left it in the kennel & didn't feed it or anything the whole time. It went from a 12-15 lb cat to about 7 lbs.... The kitty will recover(we went to the vet & it's gaining weight & the hair is starting to grow back). I'm not a violent person, but I'm feeling so angry right now.

That makes me SICK! Hope the kitty is better soon. When we were moving many yrs back. We couldn't take our dog with us. A girl I knew well, said that they wanted him, they even came out and met him and said yes! They told us they were coming the day of the move, just leave him tied and they would get him even if they missed us. So I did (bad decision) with water his big barrel of food for her to take. 3 days later, my old neighbor calls and says if we don't get the dog, they are calling the pound! My heart sank, I couldn't believe she didn't get him. Of course I ran out there right away and got him! He came to the new place with me regardless and I finally found GOOD owners!

Hind sight is 20/20, I should have never just trusted that she had kept her word. I know that very few people can be trusted and I should have called to triple check. Sad

I hate when people are mean to animals.

I would have reported it, but my daughter is not a confrontational personality. The vet said there wasn't much we could do as far as charges, since it would be a he said/she said situation & again... the whole confrontational issue. So, the lady doesn't even know my daughter's mad... The cat is happy, doing well & gaining wight. We got flea treatment on it & the fur is growing back. He looked so distraught when we got him, but now he's strutting about like he owns the place... and is even getting along w/ our kitty(he whole reason we couldn't have him here in the 1st place).

I found out a little more about the lady... She's a WOW addict....

I'd still like to call her & tell her to expect an investigation(just to scare the snot out of her Evil or Very Mad

maybe put your neighbour in a carry case for a couple of days. Twisted Evil Then she can have her WOW effect

No, I'm not that cruel, but it slips through my mind, because it makes me so mad ..... People like that should feel how it is.

Nothing to be gained with that feelings of revenge though. I'm glad everything is allright with the kitten and you were in time.

ooooh, I'm fuming now too. That is so sad. Your poor kitty. I'm so glad she's doing better.

I think you should report her anyway. Just open an investigation and let her know you did. Even if nothing comes of it, maybe it will wake her up a little or maybe it can be used if she does something again like that later and is investigated. It couldn't hurt to report it.

That is just plain unacceptable! If she wasn't willing to provide love and care she shouldn't have agreed. Some people! Sheesh! How is your daughter feeling now that her kitty is getting better? Relief and anger probably hey? (((hugs))) to the kitty and you.

So terribly sad. In my city about 2 years ago, someone had a puppy rottie , german shephard mix and sawed it's ears off and left the dog on the balcony. Neighbours finally called the police b.c the dog was crying in pain for hours. When the police got there, the dog was bleeding and his little ears were sawed with a blunt knife. The guy totally got away with it. No criminal charges. The doggie is happily adopted out to a loving family now. Just makes you wonder what the frick some people are thinking. So horrible.

Horrible situation for the kitty, and horrible misjudgement of character. I'm sorry the kitty and your family had to go through that! I'm glad the cat is recovering.

On the other hand, WoW gaming has little to do with it. I work with two boarded veterinary surgeons, a boarded veterinary criticalist, a boarded veterinary radiologist, and many top-notch ICU/ER veterinarians...all self-described WoW addicts.

OMG!!!!!! I hate when suckers mess around with animals and kids... just makes me sick of my stomach. Linda you should scare her even though nothing can be done regarding pressing charges , tell her that you already reported her to aspca and to expect and investigation.
I just can't control myself when suckers mess around with poor lil ones. I probably would have beat the crap out of her, or sent her a virus so she couldnt play her WOW anymore ...Im not saying its right to do this but just makes me furious..
I rescued my lil lion (my cat) 11 years ago from an abusive sucker. He was gonna put her to sleep when she was 1 year old, just because she scratched his paints and requiered his attention, he used to hit her. People don't believe me but took me several years and a lot of patience to get her trust.

No offense to the people who have WoW under control Very Happy
Anyway, Thank you all. I wish I could press charges & I'm not one to fake threat people.... if ones coming, you'd know it.
I'm just glad the kitty is one to not lose all hope in humanity... He's back to his old self... I think he's part Hobbit... The cat could eat all day(he was like this before the incident) & no food is unsafe or out of reach... we're discovering. We have to put him in the bedroom if we want to eat family dinner without him all over the dinning room table Very Happy
