My Maine Coon cat is mentally retarded and how it happened

My Maine Coon cat is mentally retarded and how it happened

by Joshua Treadway
(San Diego, California)

It all started when my partner and I started to paint our garage for the bar called Chadwicks we were going to make. We used to be heavy drinkers but what happened was we shut him in there when we were kind of intoxicated and he got into the paint.

I think the fumes got to him he was stuck in there for 42 hours and this was paint that didn’t dry for a few days and we think he drank a lot of it we had a lot of colors like green red purple blue yellow pink and orange.

When we finally let him back in we noticed he was acting weird like he was stumbling a lot but we thought he was just playing.

Well then his stools came out multi-colored and he was vomiting multi-colored also so we changed him to a special diet of expensive food lion brand food and we noticed that our paint kept getting emptier and emptier and he kept on vomiting and pooping different colors.

Then the doctor found traces of paint and we needed to get his stomach pumped to this day he is still mentally retarded but John and I love him with all our heart.

When any person or animal is harmed due to addictions it would be responsible to attend treatment, perhaps these folks should restart with a goldfish.

by: Rudolph.A.Furtado

A bad work of “FICTION” as it sound too stupid to be true even for a “HORROR TOPIC”. Try “SHOCKING” pets lovers and cat fanciers with something different and a little bit of “Believable facts”.

I agree with Finn.
It’s not the cat that is mentally retarded!

you both are very bad owners. Poor cat how could you leave him in there for 2 days and not notice he was missing?! i think you should put that cat for adoption because you are NOT suitable owners for any animal!fucking drunks!

Feb 27, 2010 Gross neglect or a troll?
by: Anonymous

I find it hard to believe what you have written could possibly be true and I very much hope that it is not.

If there is any shred of truth in your story, then you are a very negligent owner. Not only for putting your cat in such a dangerous situation, but for not seeking veterinary advice immediately. (In most countries a vet would have reported you to the relevant animal welfare authorities.)

There’s no mention of shame or remorse for your actions, or even a plea for others to learn from your mistakes. This is why I am hoping for the sake of all animals that you are a troll, because the thought that people like yourself are keeping pets is very worrying.

This is a wind up, right ? A cat would not drink gallons of paint and he certainly wouldn’t pass multi coloured stools and vomit. If he had licked paint at all he’d be washed away with diarrhoea,although it’s debatable he’d have survived 48 hours anyway in the garage and still had the strength to walk out,eat food you went out especially to buy AND survive his stomach pumped too.
Take up writing stories for your living, you’ll soon be rich and famous.

Feb 27, 2010 Cat mentally retarded by poisoning.
by: Rudolph.A.Furtado

A crime as a “Pet Owner”, wonder how you are disclosing this absolutely unforgivable carelessness in a common forum of “Cat Fanciers” and “Cat Lovers”.


Feb 27, 2010 A little irresponsible
by: Maggie Sharp

Did you not stop to think “Where is the cat?” during those 42 hours? That’s very irresponsible, and like Michael said, he could have been saved if you’d got him into a vet earlier… I also wouldn’t say ‘mentally retarded’ either, it’s incredibly disrespectful…

You can’t love him too much if you’d let that happen to him… If it happened to my cat I’d be disgusted at myself for just leaving him in a shed for 42 hours, too bad if he got hungry or thristy…

I honestly can’t wait for the day that people stop treating cats like crap and thinking it’s okay…

Thanks for your honesty and for visiting and sharing. But I think you might have acted a bit quicker and/or been more careful in the first place. If you had it would have almost certainly saved him for being poisoned by this paint.

I am not criticising though, please note. You came to the site to share and it is not my place to criticise under those circumstances.

I have never heard of a cat vomiting paint! That is horrible, quite sickening to be honest.

I think you might get one or two comments that you won’t be happy about!
