  1. Very sorry for both cats as it seems they were innocent as you said , they did not bother any civilian out there 🙁

  2. I’m of the thinking that fear (anticipated or real) and panic are most always the cause of oversedation in animals and humans.
    Some of the ferals being cared for by friends that died on the table during neutering were frightening cats, capable of great harm.
    I’ve, also, worked with doctors who ordered twice the amount of sedation necessary to subdue a violent or threatening patient. I’m certain they were afraid (as they walked out the door and left me to give the shot).
