Save Scrumpy  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am not sure if this is the correct place to put this or not, if it is in the wrong place then I apologise.

I just came across this site - http://savescrumpy. tripod .com where the owner of the cat is threatening to have Scrumpy put down unless he receives a certain amount of money, I have already done my part to contribute and I hope you will do the same, I hope that together we can save this poor cat from it's owner.

What kind of SOB would do something like this?? How dare he threaten to kill his cat. Maybe he should get a job and pay his bills like everyone else.

I completely agree, everyone else gets a job but he decideds to take this route to earning his money, disgusting.

There is nothing wrong with the cat. There is everything wrong with the owner. Please - DO NOT donate to this person!! What an aweful scam!!

It would be wonderful if the authorities would get involved. This seems like some sort of pet abuse, to me. Surely the SPCA could do something

From our Rules:

5. Solicitations – TheCatSite.com does not encourage or promote solicitation of money from our members. We will help in every way possible with our knowledge and support, but as many of us have multi-cat households and work with local rescue groups, monetary support is not always possible to causes or people we do not personally know. Members are allowed one posting in the SOS forum for each organization. Repeated postings for the same cause or organization will be deleted.

The needs of rescue workers are great and we recognize this fact. To care for multiple cats, find suitable homes, good vet care, food, etc. is costly. From time to time you will see some posts come up to ask for donations for a cause. It is YOUR responsibility to check out these solicitors to the best of your ability. More often, you will see pleas from individuals asking for money to be sent directly to them to assist with veterinary bills. Some come up with slick websites, others just have heartwrenching stories. In each of these cases, the poster is allowed ONE thread, to be placed in Cats SOS.

In either case, if you feel compelled to donate money ask for references, phone numbers, call around the area and find out if this is a legitimate cause or a scam. For personal pleas, get the veterinarian’s contact information and send money directly to the veterinarian to help with bills for that particular cat. If that information is not available, you have the answer if the plea is legitimate or a scam.

Be very careful before you send any money: no matter how effective the plea is, check it out first before opening your wallet.
Most likely there either is no cat, or they have no intention of killing the cat. These scams show up a lot as more and more people put up free websites and hope that "stupid" animal lovers will just give them money.

This thread is now closed. I've also removed the direct link because the scammers are most likely tracking where the hits are coming from and will therefore post more scam links here if there are a lot of hits.
