Oh No! Funny Face was Attacked! - Page 2

post #31 of 38
Why do they not have records of what they did to the ferals? They should have to keep them no matter that they are ferals. What about a record of the money you spent with them? Surely they have a record of that since they called you to say it was empty. At least I would report them for not keeping good records. Maybe that would get somebody to look into things. Don't need vets like that around.

I had a similar incident with the last dog I rescued. They didn't know if she really had been spayed and what shots. It was finally decided that she had had everything done but it was a real mess for awhile. Not what I had anticipated.

Hope this all works out for you. You are

Hedi, no worries, you didn't make me feel bad! It's a BIG learning experience for sure, and without trapping the other cats we don't know for sure there's a large problem. We've sure got our fingers crossed!

Anyway, we went to visit Funny Face today. The sad news is that the person who was going to adopt him isn't because they've rescued another cat, and are at seven now, so don't have room to dedicate to socializing him. BUT the good news is that he's staying in boarding at the vet for a while, and one of the vet techs in particular is going to work with him. We dropped off toys, a bed, treats and a condo today. And (I'll just call her VT) VT was already handling him. He's shy and VERY scared - but snuzzles into her and rubs his cheek on hers when she holds him. As Gary says - "I knew he was a snuggle bear!"

He has thick, plush, soft, silky furr, and is so funny looking, he looks just like a Koala Bear when she holds him! I'm confident we, probably with help from the vet, will be able to find him a loving home. He's going to be a lover of a cat!

Well - we trapped two of the barn cats before we both got struck with HORRIBLE cases of the flu AND strep throat!!!! It snowed, then sleeted - gave us a one day break, and is raining now, with colder temperatures back by the end of the week. So everything should be good and icy by the time we're feeling better!

Anway GOOD NEWS is they were both neutered! I'm beginning to think Funny Face was just a victim of their lack of organization. I can still hope, anyway.

More good news - the vet tech who was working with Funny Face to socialize him has decided to take him home. She can't keep him because of the number of cats she already has, so it's not permanent (yet ), but he'll be kept in a separate room and she'll spend lots of time with him. In the meantime, we'll both try to find him a new guardian - but he's inside and being loved!

Well that is great news with Funny Face , lets hope for a permanent home soon for him

Maybe it was just a mistake with that one cat , I am hoping too

Wow...the flu and strep throat at the same time! You poor things.

I'm so glad the other ferals were neutered. Whew, what a relief!

I hope that Funny Face continues to do well in his new home. He's really lucky that he got in that fight and got scratched up. Otherwise y'all wouldn't have found that he wasn't neutered AND he would still be living outside in the cold. The old vet's lack of organization seems to be a stroke of luck for this little guy!

LOL! That everything happens for a reason whether or not we can figure out what that is is solidly a part of my belief system.

Laurie I'm so glad Funny Face is doing alright and I'm so glad the other two boys you trapped were already desexed. Sorry about all your problems and I hope you and Gary are feeling better!
