Curious George is sick.
And I am angry.
I told the people at the shelter, repeatedly, that I had a cat with chronic health conditions and needed to adopt a healthy cat.
And they assured me that George was healthy.
And then I got to the shelter last night, and they said that there was a virus going around, and that George had sneezed, "once". "But we really don't think he's got it, and we'll give you some pills to take home, just in case he might come down with it."
Well. I should have known right then, but foolishly, I thought, "ah, what's one little sneeze?"
Within five minutes of getting George home, it was obvious that he had an upper respiratory infection. The wheezing is a pretty sure sign. And then, I noticed that his ears were badly gunked up. And oh yeah, his one eye is all cloudy.
The shelter was closed last night, but I called this morning and left a message on their answering machine. A message stating that George was sick and would need to come back to the shelter.
Because what part of "my other cat has a chronic medical condition and cannot be around sick cats" did these people choose not to understand?
I have George sequestered in the spare bedroom, so hopefully Little Girl will not catch whatever he's got before I can get him back to the shelter, but man, I am not a happy camper this morning.
I am angry. And that shelter's got some goddamn explaining to do.
