    If you really think that then you need to speak to the vet again.

    I'm not sure what you're getting at?? I don't think she believed that stray bollocks for a minute, my guess is she probably knows one of the neibours from outside and they've been telling her crap about us then she's gone along with the "stray" story

    What I'm getting at is that it doesn't sound the actions of a vet.

    You're saying that she colluded with your neighbour to kill your cat?

    I don’t even know why it is being debated - at the end of the day OP has lost her cat and has come here to share how devastated she is. Why the third degree? There’s one well known animal charity which have had a lot of media attention about putting strays to sleep. It shouldn’t happen but it does xx

    Because this wasn't a well known charity and it wasn't a stray?

    There’s really no need to split hairs. She came here for support and voice her feelings and it puts people off when they are faced with an attitude like yours xx

    Ok, I'll back off. I just thought it might be helpful if she got the whole story from the vet.

    I think it's simply because it's a highly unusual situation and one thankfully we haven't come across before - a very young vet - who doesn't examine the cat properly - doesn't know what it was suffering from - takes the initiative to PTS at the wishes of a complete stranger - without trying to contact the owners (who's details are on file - it's the same vets) and the vet just happened to know the neighbour who took the cat in....

    It's very shocking and no wonder emotions running high on all sides xx

    @Me12345 I'm sorry I didn't say this before - I'm very sorry for your loss.

    She has given her story as she knows it and it’s not even anything to do with me but I don’t think picking at every reply she has given is helpful when she has come here saying she is devastated. She obviously felt it unnecessary herself as she even stated she didn’t know what MilleD was getting at.

    @Me12345
    I'm so very sorry for your loss :(
    I cannot believe your neighbour did such a thing without even consulting you that they found your cat or anything !

    I hope you at least got to bury her .

    She is pain free and in heaven now.

    I completely agree with @Clairabella the OP came here for advice and was clearly very upset.
    The only thing that we should be doing is advising her and supporting her :)

    I'm so sorry and hope you're okay.
    I know it seems impossible to be happy and smile right now but It will get better :)

    Feel free to PM me whenever :)

    I'm sorry to hear about this.

    For what it's worth, flies do not - cannot - lay eggs on a normal, healthy cat. They would be removed by the cat far too quickly. Finding fly eggs on the skin or hair is a sign of a problem, often serious.

    Agreed totally and didn’t mean it as a personal judgement on anyone but I just know how I’d feel if I came here for sympathy saying I’m devastated and faced with repeated questioning. I sensed OP was uncomfortable as she did say I don’t know what u r getting at xx

    I think making an appointment to speak with the veterinary practice is good advice. It may help ascertain what happened, and allow them to put measures in place, if appropriate, to prevent such a thing happening to anyone else in the future.
