Here is what I did. I am the one where the vet told me I might need to but Dori (my cat) down. I put aluminum foil where she was soiling she hasnt soiled since. I have left her out of the bathroom the last 2 nights and she is great. here is my question now. I am going back to the humane society to see if the will donate money to me since i got her 1.5 weeks ago and they told me she was 4 months and the vet told me 1 year. she has a urinary tract infection, respiatory infection and bacterial infection. I just payed $300 in the past week to have things done and medication. Is it wrong to go back there and tell them that they gave me a sick kitten which is a cat that hasnt been spayed? We are also going to the news and newspaper about this. My sisters friend works there and 12 animals have been sent out of there sick. Please help with this and I appreciate the posts.

it sounds like they are desperate to home cats and perhaps cant afford medical treatment of their own. maybe they have run out of funds ?
I would certainly ask for some money back to help cover the costs incurred, and certainly ask why they are letting cats be rehomed when they are clearly in need of medical attention, and as for desexing , I thought all pounds had a policy to desex all cats and kittens before rehoming to stop strays from being produced !!

If they need more money, maybe an article in the paper will help produce more donations from the public to help the sick ones, and desex the ones that are going to new homes.
But if it's a "bad" pound, perhaps they need to be shut down and the cats distributed to other pounds who can cope.

keep us updated.

I would definately contact and discuss this will them. Was the cat supposed to be spayed when you adopted her?

I agree. She should have been spayed before you took her home. As for getting a sick kitty, this is a common problem in cats from a shelter.

Unfortunately most of the cats in a shelter get sick and they control that. When you bring so many animals together they are going to pass things around.

As for age, it was probably a mistake. A kitten can look younger than it is if it has been malnourished. Not to mention they are not experts and are making their best guess.

You can ask about money to help, but they are probably strapped for cash already.

They should spay her, but sometimes they don't if they have too many cats. They should have given you a coupon to get her fixed.

If my vet told me to put my cat down b/c of minor health problems I would never go back. Never!
