Poor Jolanda - yes she's still here, but not for much longer! Sometimes with requests like the one below, we can't blame her for leaving.
Someone wrote in to say that they needed an urgent slot for a pregnant cat to be sterilised and Jolanda arranged it specially as this person said that she needed the slot ASAP. Jolanda asked also if this was a community cat but the person said it was not, but that if it was not sterilised, it might go back to being a community cat, because her parents might object.
The cat was sent in for sterilisation today, and unfortunately it died. Jolanda called the clinic immediately to try and find out what happened and spoke to the nurse, but the vet was busy. She's still trying to get to the bottom of this. Now the person is blaming the vet, saying that they should not have sterilised the cat. She also said she should not have been so cheap, and now her precious cat is dead. She is also blaming the Society - for what I'm not so sure, because Jolanda bent backwards to try and help her out. She's now claining that 'other vets' would not have sterilised the cat. Which other vets remain uncertain.
