The Mercer county animal shelter is having some major problems right now. My friend had surrendered a mommy cat and 9 kittens about ten days ago. She was assured that due to their great health they would quickly be adopted. Thursday the family reclaimed the cat and kittens because they were covered in urine and feces and had not been appropriately fed or cleaned up after. She took them home and cleaned them up only to find out all of them had contracted a horrible virus during their inhumane treatment at the mercer county pound. She took them to the vet and they were give antibiotics and other drugs. The mother cat had lost four pounds in the 9 days she was at the pound. All of the kittens were struggling to breathe. Last night two of the kittens died from the viral infection they contracted during their time at the pound. This afternoon the mommy cat and other kittens had to be put down because their airways were closing off. This is a sad situation. She took very good care of them before taking them to the pound and I saw all of them and they were VERY healthy when surrendered. This has caused their family great grief. I hope that she will seek criminal charges for the animal abuse of that beautiful cat and kittens. Justice needs to be sought for all of the animals in the shelter.
