The Story Of Myet

 


Myet was a Persian cat who was abandoned by her owner last year and dumped at a DBKU cage. She was brought to the shelter and we noticed that she had ear mites and some fur loss. She was subsequently spayed because a man expressed great interest in adopting her.

All was fine for a few months until the man and his family moved to an apartment. One day, Myet decided to go out of the window to take a peek at the world below and the man accidentally startled her which made her leap down 3 stories. Judging from the description of her injuries, it seemed that she landed pretty heavily on her rear end which seriously injured her spine and rendered her hind legs immobile, thus crippling her most probably for life.

This cat was supposed to be rehomed when the man's contract with his employer (he's not Malaysian) but although there's about 6 months left, because the cat is not 'whole' anymore, he considered either having her euthanized (despite his admittance that she's otherwise in good health) or bringing her back to the shelter. He wouldn't have considered these two options when the cat was 'whole' then.

The moral of this story is how far we're willing to go when an animal needs us and will we ever remember the good times we had with our pets when the bad times come or will we simply forsake them and tell ourselves that we had to put them down or abandon them for their own good?

"Sometimes it's better to be inhuman and dedicate some time to take extra care of our crippled pets because it's so easy to be human and take the easy way out"
