Posioning cats (no I'm not)

My sisters cat was poisioned on Sat. I don't understand why people feel the need to be so mean and cruel to animals. Ayway his name is Spook and he is a pure black ball of love. The vet is going to phone my sister tonight and let her know if he's any better if he's not then she's going to put him down. It's SOO sad. I'm so mad for people doing that. There has been tons of cats go missing in their area. I also found out that during our towns clean up week someone threw out 2 of the HUGE garbage bags of cats. That's so mean. I just don't understand. There really was not a point in this post just kinda a vent thing I guess. Thanks for reading/listening.

People like that are so stupid. Who would ever want to do that. Sorry to hear about your sister's cat, and I hope everything goes fine.

Good luck,

I agree it is unfortunate, but people who own cats are irresponsible. If i let my dog go out and crap over all my neibors lawns and flower gardens, the city pound would come pick him up immediatly. Why do people think cats are any diffrent? Sorry to hear about your cat but im fed up with people letting their cats just roam free.

That is just horrible..... Stories like that is why i keep my cat indoors. I've had cats that have dissapeared because of their wandering.... I've also had a cat attacked within my own home so they are not safe even there 100%
(Dog actually broke through my screen door and mauled my 18 year old cat)

But....then there are the sickos out there who do that s*** on purpose. That's what really ticks me off....
My mom's neighboor is not too fond of the poop in her garden but mom's cats keep the squirls out of her tomatos so it's all good....

Plus... i get called over to rid her flowerbed of cat poop :S LoL

I am very sorry to hear of your sisters cat and i hope he/she can pull through. (kitty and her)
May i ask what area she lives in?? Scar/Birch?

I have to agree with Concept here. It is a terrible thing to do but after weeks of having a neighbors cat spray into our windows, ruin our garden and crap in it.....we are quite frustrated as well. We have so far resorted to spraying him with a water bottle when we see him, but why should I have too?

Yeah that sucks, wish her the best of luck with the cat.

There used to be a psycho old man on my friends street and he would set up traps and leurs in his yard and would seriously catch, squirrels, cats and birds, take them out of the cage, snap their neck and chuck them in the garbage can. Sick huh?

I believe there is a by-law in Toronto that requires cats to be on leads. They are not allowed to roam free. My cat has been on one his entire life (except for those days he manages to escape), even prior to the by-law. People used to laugh. Now my entire street does the same thing; cats, rabbits, you name it!

I hate to tell all you people who are in a round about blaming my sister for her cat being out, he escaped out he is an indoor cat. Also it does not matter how much a cat is making ou mad there is NO reason to hurt them. And I thank those who have sent their good wishes. He is doing better, but he still might not make it through the night.

I agree that it is wrong but honestly after our 5 bunnies were torn apart and left all over our back yard my DH was seriously considering putting out Dog food with poison in it. Our cat also stays inside but she has escaped as well and there are many here that run loose, I wouldn't kill a cat that was ruining my yard but I would set traps and dump it at the pound and let them do it. A dog on the other hand that can rip my 2 cages apart and leave my rabbits torn apart in my yard is not something I'm willing to grab and throw into my van and take to the pound either and city bylaws do nothing about it, unless you call them right when you see the animal and they still have to get there before the animal has gotten back home. Anyone who touched my animals in my yard or home would get a severe beating and had my husband caught the dog that did this to our bunns it would be dead, plain and simple. The rule with any animal, controlled and contained.

I never said it was o.k. to hurt them, what I did say was the reason he got hurt is because someone is fed up with a neighborhood cat problem. Obviously. It's a slim chance that it's a true "psycho" killing your cats, although anyone who would could be deemed a psycho...its more like someone so tired of spending their time and money on loose cats when they shouldn't have too.

I work in a veterinary hospital and see this far too often. Poisoned food in dog parks, poisoning the neighbours cat, its wrong. Plain and simple, no animal deserves to suffer like that. (Have you SEEN the effects of poisoning??? It's enough to make anyone cry & have nightmares.) There are cat repellants out there that work if you are that fed up with a cat in your garden. Talk to the owner if it's that much of a problem. Have a hose? Use it, it's only water, but for pete's sake no animals deserves harm to be done to it just for being what it is.

Rebecca - please send my best wishes of getting well to Spook and your sister. I am also in B.C. and am curious what area this happened in. If you could PM me or email me @ thecatspajamas@shaw.ca with the location I would appreciate it.

My neighbour used to smack my cat with a broom when he got in her garden, lol. But my cat did almost kill one of my other neighbour's chickens. They used to let them roam the neighbourhood in the mornings and this one came into my backyard. My cat was on his lead so i was able to pull him back in time. Yes, I do live in Toronto.
