Dec. 15, 2018 — A neighbor passed away this summer. His old cat was left to fend for itself.
This 9-year-old cat laid in the road waiting to die. One neighbor took “cat” in but was allergic.
The cat was then back on the street in cold weather. I took the cat in but had to keep it in the garage.
The cat got sicker, so I called our local humane society but was told, "Sorry, we are full and are a no-kill shelter."
They had no way of knowing when they would have room available.
Then I called a local vet, who said they would need to do a check-up before deciding if it was necessary to put the animal down. It would cost $65 or more.
I called Greenhill in Eugene and was told I could bring the cat in on Monday.
Greenhill will assess the cat to see if it lives or needs to be out down.
Warning: If you take in a sick or abandoned animal, be prepared to be stuck with the bill or the animal.
