|For the last two days I have been worried about a cat named Jade. She came to us during a tornado two years ago. She gets matted because she doesn't like to be brushed so once winter is over, we clip her fur off. Well someone in Adam's Family (my husband) decided to take it upon themselves and shave my cat. She tried to do it herself first when I Told her not too. And while I was sleeping she took her to the vet without my knowledge. Here is what happened:
Well, I finally got a chance to truly give Jade a once over to see what they did...Lets see where do I begin:
1. When I got home last night she fell over. (Adam believes its becaue of her whiskers. They cut half of them off on one side)
2. She had only her head, feet and tail with hair. (That was still matted)
3. She was shaking so bad from being cold (I brought her in so she could warm up
4. She smelled like pee (they didn't clip her nails, or do her ears or bath her...)
5. She was NICKED 8 times. I found 8 little bloody spots on her body.
So when I got her in, I let her have some cat sip. Its a milk product for cats, which she loved and filled her up. Then Adam started to clip a few nails at a time. Then we let her settle so we could give her a bath. The way we found out that they didn't bath her was one, the smell and two because when we washed her, the water was brown....Yeah brown when we put her in. So after a good cleaning and rinsing of her dry skin and matted fur, we toweled dried her, and cut the rest of the mats out.
Then we gave her a can of food and let her get warm. She wasn't thrilled about the bath, but it needed to be done. So we let her out in the morning when it started to heat up. she has been out all day but the weather is going to drop again so she is coming back in.
I made it clear to Mamaw and Sue that the cat needed to be in doors, until some of her hair grows back. This why it should have waited. This is why she shouldn't haven't be clipped. This is why people who aren't part of the house hold need to mind their own Business. They can't take care of her, nor do they want to. They just want to raise a stink to say "I care!" If you care then keep your mouth shut...I may take pictures of her tonight to show you want I mean or Adam can do it either way.
