i was up in the middle of the night, upset because we were forced by law enforcement to kill our cat yesterday when we were trying to fight for his life, so i posted a question asking if anyone knew if it was lawful in florida for them to demand we kill our pet.
instead of answering my question with lawful or thoughtful answers, i was bludgeoned for my back story explaining our situation. the cat was already dead when i posted the question. i only wanted to know because the officer kept trying to push us into adopting another cat and even left a form for us to fill out to do so, even though we were deeply upset, crying and telling him that we did not ever want another pet and that the cat we had was one we had rescued 10 years ago and that we never wanted to go through what we were going through at loosing him again. but still he kept insisting.
so i am suspicious of something being amiss here because when he came to the door, he said "i understand you have a cat here who has a broken back". BROKEN BACK???? where did he get that idea from. it turns out the vet at the P.A.W.S. clinic told him the cat had a broken back. he had jaundice which we suspect was due to thyroid problems but no one, not even at the free clinics we took him to, would do tests to see if that was the case. they just insisted we needed to kill him. that vet told us that he had a 50/50 chance of recovery, but refused to help him. so instead she sent the officer to our door with a false report.
