Guinness, the semi long-haired black female cat who had been reported lost, was found yesterday, but the outcome was not good. She had been in a neighbours garage and had somehow dislodged a heavy tool kit, which had crushed one of her hind legs beyond repair. A tragic accident. If she had been a young cat, she could have adapted to life as a 3-legged cat, but at 12 years old, her owner took the heartbreaking decision to have her put to sleep.
I’m all for saving animals when ever possible, but I totally support her owner in this difficult decision, and I would probably done the same if it had been one of my cats.
