I, too, had the pleasure of rescuing a stray cat a week or so ago. Happily, Fort Benning's Animal Control Center has a no-kill policy, so there was no need for Me to resort to adoption to save its life. From what the Animal Hospital was saying, she was rescued just in time. It really made Me feel good knowing that she had a extra lease on whickever of her nine lives she was currently hanging.

Fortunately for Me, cat placentas were no where to be found!

For some reason, I cannot edit My post, but only reply to it.


Well, I called Fort Benning's Animal Control Center to see how the cat was doing. The lady that spoke said the cat "had been euthanized because of the severity of its condition". I was literally speechless. Not only did the Animal Control Officer either lie to Me about the no-kill policy, the cat's condition was nowhere near hopeless, at least to My untrained eye. Well, maybe it was. I am not an animal expert. To Me, it really just looked very underfed, and it was at least well enough to forage around for what food it could find until I unwittingly rescued it to death.


Has anyone else here experienced something like this?
