Cat in flat
Poor cat. One of the adoption volunteers and I went down to assess the case of the cat being kept in a dirty flat. The owner let us in this time. He asked for time last time to take the cat to the vet and said he couldn't let us in then. The cat still has not been taken to the vet.
The flat itself was clean and there was another cat sleeping comfortably in the middle of the owner's bed, but this particular cat was kept in a storeroom at the back.
When the owner opened the door, the cat popped out and from the quick glimpse I got of the room, it was covered in what looked like smeared defecation. The cat was unkempt and the fur was matted and dirty. He was hungry and thirsty.
Then the adopter told us that the cat had been adopted from a foster back in 2002 but he couldn't remember whom. When I gave him a few names, he remembered. I called the foster immediately who remembered the cat, but the adopter had moved and did not tell her. She had done follow ups after the cat was adopted and visited, and the cat had been fine then. She immediately said she wanted the cat back.
Fortunately, the adopter didn't want the cat anymore either and asked us to take it away. The foster is taking the poor cat back tomorrow.
