I Miss My Snickers So Much
My cat snickers was 1 year and 9 months. He was always an inside cat, so the vet said there was no need to get him vaccinated. Recently I moved to the country and he had been anxious to go outside, but I wouldn't let him because I was afraid something would happen to him. Yesterday, 4-23-2012, as my boyfriend opened the front door, Snickers ran out. I looked for him, but no luck. I went to get my son from school, and when I got home, my boyfriend had already let Snickers back in. He told me that he was acting as if he were going to throw up. I figured it was a hair ball. Then I noticed Snickers was acting weird. I examined him and saw that he was bleeding. I packed him up and took him to the vet. She said we only had 2 options since he wasn't vaccinate, and something had clearly attacked him. Either euthanize him and test for rabies, or send him away to be put in a double cage quarantine for 6 months. Well, I thought long and hard, and I know my cat needs physical touch to survive. The quarantine would not allow that. He would be fed through the cage that's only big enough for him to move around a little. I loved him so much, but I could not bare to have him confined that way for 6 months. He would never want that. So I reluctantly decided to have him euthanized. I can't stop crying. I'm so depressed. And if the rabies test comes back negative, I'd just die. I miss my Snickers more than anything.
