Bad Calls/Emails: Sweet Black Cat at a Kill Shelter -- UPDATE
Got Simba out of “jail” on Monday afternoon. He was hissing and growling at us but calmed right down when I got him in the truck. Wednesday he was tested, neutered, and got his shots. The vet staff said “He had the biggest balls we have ever seen!” HA HA! I said he was a big boy.
OMG: Spay Gone Bad
A young cat from Valley View was given to Barn Cats on 6/22 – Wednesday. I put her in a cage in my family room next to 3 other cats in individual cages. Someone was crying all night. I removed Buddy to the cat room. Then I removed this cat – but the crying continued. Finally, I covered up the cages of the other two cats and the crying stopped. When I put this cat in a cage in the cat room, she jumped around trying to get out. I turned off the light (it was about 2 am) and went back to bed. That would have been Thursday morning. Saturday morning, her incision came loose and she started losing lots of blood. Our vet put her to sleep. Geez – this had happened to us one other time and the outcome is never good. I guess if this has just happened twice in 14 years and 6,000 cats – that is not bad…but…bummer!
