Almost Any Excuse Will Do to Kill a Cat at These San Diego Shelters — 8 Comments

  1. Almost any excuse will do to let cats roam free to that responsible adults must clean-up the invasive-species cat problem…..remainder deleted as insulting to decent people (admin).

  2. Once I had a litter of kittens I could not keep. I called the Animal Protective Association here. The person who answered the phone (who I discovered later was a volunteer) told me that the most important thing was that the kittens had to weigh at least 2 and a half pounds. She did not tell me that more important than the weight was that the kittens had to be more than 3 months old, because at the age of 2 months and below those babies will give off false positives. I found that out from a friend of mine who was a vet tech.

    You guessed it: I took them in and all the kittens were euthanized because one supposedly tested positive for Feline Leukemia. I would have kept them until they were 3 or 4 months and then turned them in had I known. Another couple months would not have mattered. I’ve found that no-kill shelters have a hair trigger when it comes to euthanasia. It’s CYA with that crowd. They can always make up an excuse later and by that time the poor cats pay the ultimate price.

    • So you’d just love to infect all the other cats in that shelter with Feline Leukemia just so you can feel good about yourself…..remainder deleted as it insults a valued contributor

      • Well well, it’s back peddling its own brand of stupid. So let me get this straight, Woody: you’re a vicious troll who haunts cat centric websites, yet you think you know what a real adult is? That’s the most pathetic thing I’ve ever heard you say, which is saying a lot , because everything you post is pathetic. Better take your meds. You are psychotic.

  3. Typical of kill shelters. Most won’t spend 2 cents to treat any cat. And, sometimes the ailments are grossly exaggerated or even fabricated.
