I didn't ask, didn't want to know really. At this point, there wouldn't be any proof. I could say "I don't think they fed their dying cat", but he's gone now. I just kind of got away from her as quick as I could. People in wheelchairs don't have all that many options, though she could have called a taxi - she could have come over here and gotten me, except my porch isn't handicapped accessible - but I'm pretty sure I gave her my # .
I think we kind of forget that not everyone knows how to syringe feed, not everyone knows how to give subq fluids, but by damn, I came home very early in my rescue career and my sweet Jasmine had been vomiting and had diarrhea all day and was super dehydrated (was shocked it could happen that fast, but it did) - I realized something was very wrong and got her to the er immediately - she had a raging case of mastitis and had to have surgery and was fine after that up til the day she was stolen under color of law by the state..miss her so much. All I can do is spay and neuter everything that goes into their house, and reiterate to please not take animals to the pound, we will work with them to help find them homes if necessary.
