It is extremely hard to fathom how a family who owned a black cat wanted to have him euthanised (actually killed is a better word) because he had fleas. We had fleas because the family did not care for him properly. And clearly this family is totally unsuited to looking after a domestic cat. The veterinarian obviously refused and ultimately persuaded them to have the cat rehomed. He is currently with foster carers waiting for a new home. The cat’s name is Caesar. We do not have the names of the family concerned. They have adopted another cat which surprises me because they are highly unsuited.
