Another Life Lost – Domesticated Cats Never Need to be Outdoors!

11/11/14 –  My heart broke when I saw his emaciated body and pained face. People heard him crying in their garage and pulled him out to turn him over to Lisa, Warren, MI, Animal control Officer. He is estimated to be about 8 years old, very emaciated, flea ridden, and his body temperature is at a dangerous level. He also has a broken leg. He is currently on fluids and heating pads at All About Animals Rescue but will need a home and future medical treatment after Wednesday. 4 Paws 1 Heart will be paying for his future treatment if he makes it. Please share. If you can foster him for a rescue, please let me know. If you are a rescue willing to take him in with a foster, please let me know. I will let Lisa know. He is also being posted on For the Love of Louie. Lisa said that he is very sweet. May God watch over him; he looks like he’s been through hell and back. Please send prayers and positive energy that we can give him a second chance on a loving life. ~ diana

The cat had escaped. Because of privacy issues, we cannot report any further on this very sweet boy. Thank you to everyone for caring! Just a reminder to please microchip your pets if there is any chance they might leave your property. If you have a dog, double secure his identity with a collar with your address and phone number on the inside. With cats, it is a little more difficult because collars should be ‘breakaways”. Having said that, our personal opinion is that NO domesticated cat should ever be outside. Once a cat has been taken into a home, every precaution must be taken so that they never be outside again. A domesticated cat does not have the instincts to survive on the streets as a true feral cat does. They don’t know how to hunt for food, find shelter, or protect themselves. Please remember that God has put us on this earth to be their protectors and we must take that roll seriously! ~ diana
11/12/14 – The owners contacted Lisa and reported that the Emergency staff recommended humane euthanasia because of this poor baby’s injuries and health issues. RIP Sweet Boy ~ diana
