[kl-bogel] Gambar Pemandulan Kucing Secara Pukal
Ini ialah gambar operasi pemandulan 697 kucing yang dilakukan di fakulti vaterinar Universiti Florida minggu lalu. Kucing-kucing ini dirampas dari Haven Acres Cat Sanctuary setelah pihak jabatan haiwan menerima laporan terdapat kucing yang mati dan dan berpenyakit di santuari ini. Haven Acres Cat Sanctuary tidak mampu menjaga kucing yang diambil oleh mereka. Pemilik Haven Acres Cat Sanctuary juga tidak percaya dengan konsep pemandulan kucing dan akibatnya jumlah kucing di santuari menjadi terlalu banyak sehingga menggangu jiran tetangga. Kesemua kucing yang dirampas dimandulkan before they are allowed to be adopted. I dunno about you tapi gambar kucing-kucing ini dimandulkan secara pukal agak funny but also sad at the same time. Jangan bersedih ok cat lovers. Pemandulan ini dilakukkan kerana kebanyakkan kucing disini mengidap penyakit lukemia, jangkitan mulut dan feline infectious peritonitis. Lebih baik mereka dimandulkan dari pass the desease to their offsprings kan? Klik link berita penuh untuk gambar kuceng kena MEOWNDOL.

Seized cats being readied for adopt-a-thon on Aug. 26-28

Hun­dreds of cats seized from a major High               

Springs hoard­ing case are be­ing shut­tled this week to the Uni­versity of Florida ve­t­erinary col­lege to be spayed or neutered, tested and treated in prepa­ration for an adoption event           

this month.

The surgery is be­ing done by about 25 UF ve­t­erinary students and a handful of ve­t­erinary res­idents from UF and the Uni­versity of California at Davis.

"There are over 600 that will need homes," said UF ve­t­erinary pro­fessor Julie Levy. "We are planning a big adopt-a-thon, so that's why we are having the push now to get them spayed and neutered and healthy."

Alachua County Ani­mal Ser­vices, along with national res­cue groups, seized 697 cats on June 7 from Haven Acres Cat Sanctu­ary.

Owners Steve and Pennie Lefkowitz de­scribed the sanctu­ary as a no-kill fa­cility for unwanted fe­lines. The Humane Society of the United States de­scribed it as the largest case of cat hoard­ing in the nation.

Initially the cats, which are be­ing housed in a ware­house, got exams and some treat­ment but       

had not been re­linquished to Ani­mal Ser­vices. Custody was turned over last week, al­lowing for the surgery — more than 300 need to be spayed or neutered — and more intensive treat­ment.

More than 60 of the seized cats have been euth­a­nized. Levy said many of the survivors have ringworm, mouth in­fections and diseases such as fe­line in­fectious peritonitis and viral fe­line leukemia.

Haven Acres cats are be­ing spayed or neutered in the style of Op­eration Catnip, a sterilization program at UF in which stray and feral cats under­go surgery in as­sembly line fash­ion with staff at var­ious stations do­ing anes­thesia, vac­cinations, surgery and recovery.

Levy said local ve­t­erinar­ians have been vol­unteering to pro­vide oth­er treat­ment.

"We certainly would be happy to have more ve­t­erinar­ians that would be will­ing to

vol­unteer, especially those who can do dentistry, because those se­vere mouth in­fections are very hard to treat," she said. "Some also have tumors that need to be re­moved — mostly be­nign tumors like tumors of the ear."

The adopt-a-thon is set for Aug. 26-28 and will be based at the Alachua County Humane Society, 4205 NW 6th St., which is near the ware­house where the cats are now be­ing housed, said Humane Society exec­utive di­rector Eric Van Ness.

Ani­mal Ser­vices Di­rector Dave Flagler said he hopes widespread publicity from the Haven Acres case will boost adoptions.An adoption fee has not been set, Flagler said, adding that those inter­ested in adopting a cat will be screened in or­der to make sure the cat and adopter are a good fit.

"I'm kind of hopeful that a successful event for us would be 200 or 250," he said. "People need to make sound financial deci­sions. It's easy to           

lis­ten about the hard­ships these ani­mals have gone through, and they tug at your heart. If a per­son is want­ing to open up their hearts to a new ani­mal, this is a wonderful event. But make sure your wal­let can accommodate that, as well."

Pros­ecutors should decide by next week whether any charges will be filed against the Lefkowitzes, said Spencer Mann, of the State Attor­ney's Office.
