Angry street cat saves his life by changing tune before euthanasia
Jul 18, 2011
An angry street cat saved his own life at a Mosman veterinary clinic after he charmed the veterinarians before the procedure to euthanize him, reports The Mosman Daily. Duncan, an angry and terrified street cat, had been picked up and brought to the veterinary clinic where Charlotte Surridge works.
For three days at the clinic Duncan wouldn’t let anyone touch him and hissed constantly. However, as nurses prepared to perform the procedure on the day he was scheduled to be euthanized, he completely changed and began purring and kissing them.
“When the nurses got him out of his cage to be put down, they said it was almost like he knew what they were about to do,” Surridge told the source.
After that change of heart, Surridge took a liking to Duncan and is caring for him until she can find a suitable home.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, seven out of 10 cats in shelters are euthanized because no one adopts them.
