Would anyone like to adopt two cats? Both cats are declawed, friendly and sterilized. If I don't find a home for them tomorrow, they will be sent to the cat heaven in the sky.

The female is 5 years old and the male is 2 years old. If you would like more info, please contact me.

If only I lived closer, I would adopt them in a second! No chance of getting them sent to NFLD huh? :(

Brenda, I'm part of a rescue, I'm trying to save these cats lives. All the MTL rescues are overflowing with cats. The lady has called all the rescues, she has asked all her friends. I'm trying to find a home for them asap. If you know anyone who's looking to adopt cats, please let me know. This is very urgent.

No news...someone from another rescue is going to call her and give her some options and tips. They are full as well, so they can't take the cats.

We are hoping and praying the women won't euthanise them tomorrow :fingerscr:pray:

OMG!!!!!!!!!! I was terrified to open this thread! What fabulous news!!!! We needed to hear that today!
Thank you thank you thank you kind lady!!!!! Is she keeping them or fostering?
Ask the vet (if you know who he/she is) to give her a BIG GIANT :grouphug: from us!

WOW.....talk about last minute. :eek: That's like in the movies where the guy is sitting in the chair waiting to get electrocuted and the phone rings with the life-saving call. :D

I am so happy to hear this news....thanks for updating. :thumbs up

And WOOO HOOO for the kitties :highfive: .....were they adopted or are they being fostered? :)

How come they were going to be put down???

you can just go to the vet and say "kill my cat i don't want it no more"???

I know if someone tried to pull that around here they would be slapped and probably have the cops called on them for being crazy :eek:

Kathryn,you can bring any animal to the vet and have them put down,healthy or not,young or old and people do,once they don't want their animal anymore:evil:,there is no law saying you cannot.
Pets are considered property and can be discarded just like so much garbage.
Often time a compassionate vet will give the animal a chance,but needs permission from the owner,and try to find a home for the doomed cat/dog.

Thank goodness, those cats have been on my mind all weekend. :thumbs up

It's got to break vets hearts to put down animals that are healthy.

My vet sees healthy animals that people want put down all the time. There is definitely a vibe in the clinic when it happens, people put their heads down, they hate it. Their reason for not refusing is that people will only go elsewhere and they would lose their business.

Until laws about animal cruelty and pet ownership get changed this will continue to happen. I wish people who abandoned their "loved" cats and dogs outside to their own devises got huge fines levied on them and the money collected could be used to help out the shelters/HS's. It won't happen but it should. :sad:

That's pretty sad. The clinic I worked for didn't WANT that kind of business and had no problem turning away people who wanted to euthanize healthy animals. As a receptionist there, I had quite a few really po-ed people screaming at me and threatening me because I told them "no". Tough patootie.

Oh man I didn't even know you could do that.

I know atleast my vets office would NEVER do that. They'd probably tell you off if you even asked.

But thinking about it my old vets office would probably do it if you asked... it was bought out by some corporation who's main goal is money and not helping animals.

But yeah that's insane and I've never ever heard of it happening around here. Our shelters around here don't even really put down sick animals because they are sick or healthy animals because they are full.

Craziness!!!
