    ask if you can have your vet check explain about last cat,and how it upset you,if good shelter they will be pleased you will do and care

  2. Christina says:

    definitley adopt again, but ask around first, find some friends who have adopted and chose someone they know and trust. if that’s not an option, try to find a privately run shelter as opposed to a city or county shelter- the private ones usually care more about their animals and are actually picky about who adopts them- so you know your new pet will be healthy

    I would also recommend adoption. I’ve always used the shelter or SPCA and have had the best of luck with really genuinely sweet kittys.

    It’s common for cats and dogs to catch colds in the shelter, because of the large number of animals in close proximity to each other. However the herpes and yeast infection does sound like a bit of bad luck…

    Make sure to check out the cat before you adopt & ask to see its medical records. Keep in mind the good you’re doing by saving an animal’s life!

    Same happened to me last year, I adopted a 6 month cat at the humane society. She was sick and they told me she just had a cold and it would pass. Turned out she has Feline Herpes Virus. In July of this year I adopted another cat, they told me she was 1 year and 2 months old but she looks more like she’s 3 or 4. Her ears were full of ear wax and mites plus she was starting an URI so my 2 other cats caught it. Lots of vet bills!!. I had alot of trouble getting rid of the mites. But, I love them so much, I would’nt give them for the world. I wanted them and I got them sick or not! I don’t think you would have a problem with your vet reference. Good luck!

    what a great person you are and what a horrible shelter that was. you actually needed toi go further by reporing the shelter not even because of how they mistreated you but because of how they should have known these symptoms and didn’t care that they were putting all these animals at risk.
    i think because you have still have this cat, you may want to consider adopting other cats that also have the same condition. you would be a godsend and i cannot see any shelter turning you down as these cats do not get adopted too often. even if you were to adopt a ‘healthy’ cat, i cannot imagine the shelters records went anywhere beyond the shelter.
    best to you

    I think you should find out which state agency oversees this shelter and send them the vets paperwork. I can understand them being defencive but there is more a stake than just your cat, The other cats that may be sick. There other families that may not have the financial resources you have . The shelter should be made to to adhere to basic sanitary practises that are require of state approved shelters.

  7. cat lover says:

    The shelter seems to be somewhat unethical. Under most State laws, you have the right to expect to receive a healthy pet. The shelter responded poorly, in my opinion. Illnesses happen, so I am wondering why they were so defensive.

    I have posted a link that may provide you with sources of cats that you have not considered, and they may be more reasonable in their approaches.

    But for any pet you adopt, you immediately want a second opinion from your vet. It protects you and protects your pet.

    Almost any pet you adopt may have worms, ear mites, and perhaps fleas. Those will be treated to varying degrees, somewhat depending on the resources of the shelter, and the adoption costs. A $25 fee will not get you an animal that has had $125 worth of vet care. But you still have the right to expect your adopted pet will be healthy, and not dangerously ill.
