We have had an awful 24 hours. We had a 3yo tortie and white who had a couple of aggression issues when she first came, we weren't sure what kind of home to look for as she had snapped a couple of times for no reason, but then seemed to snap out of it after a month or so, so we thought she had accepted being in rescue (apparently she was pushed out of her house due to a new baby). We allowed her outdoor access two weeks ago, and she seemed even happier, being out all day and just in at night. yesterday she rubbed herself against the rescue lady's legs, so she fussed her, she gave her a love bite, and was told not too hard, and minutes later, turned nastily, the rescue lady has 7 puncture marks, and they only just missed the vein. We had a long chat last night trying to figure out a solution, but we couldnt put her on a farm to live a farm cat life cos she wanted to be in the house, and there was still that risk. So sadly, the decision was made to pts, and an appointment was made for tonight. I stayed with her till the end, and it was such a waste of a life, she was so young, and in good health. I dont know what her original owner had done to her, and sadly it wasn't them that had to deal with this. RIP little one, and I am so sorry this had to happen.
