Injuring Your Cat To Get Attention — 7 Comments

  1. I have never thought about this, I knew about people doing it to children but never associated it with animals, how much lower can the human race get than to deliberately injure an animal for attention. I hope this is included in vets training as it must be for doctors.

  2. This is awful. I expect it’s very hard for vets to spot injuries caused to clients pets on purpose.
    If just one of the cats, Angel or Princess, had been taken in injured like that the vet might not have been suspicious.
    The ways people use and abuse animals seems to be endless and yes Michael I agree, I’m sure a lot is hidden, especially of cats.

  3. I hadn’t heard of this before, but the more I think about it, the more I believe it’s yet another extension of warped human nature and evidence of how damaged and dysfunctional homo sapiens are..

    I think the onus is on vets to question the owners about injuries, and keep questioning, allowing the owner to trip themselves up, which I believe they will when allowed to repeat their version of events several times.

    I would guess that the reward for these people is to be seen as a caring owner. How that mind set is turned around I have no idea.

    People who are so damaged as to cause injury to another living being to gain attention for their own pain or gain, really need to keep away from all animals. But what do we do with the people who are diagnosed with this syndrome? How is it treated? Can it be treated?

    People don’t like silence, guilt does not like silence.

    • …warped human nature and evidence of how damaged and dysfunctional homo sapiens are

      Yes, the more I know humans the more I think they are warped. Help me someone! It is not good to think that.

      This is a very difficult area for anyone. Humans can be very devious.

      We don’t know how big a problem it is but like child abuse and other deviant behavior it is probably worse than we imagine.
