I recently took a 4 yr old cat to a local vet that we've used for about 15 years. When the time came to bring her home they called and said she ran into their ventilation system. The vet asked us to give them a few days to get her out.
The other day they let us know that she had actually escaped the building and hasn't been seen in a few days. Naturally we're very upset at this, but kinda dumfounded on what we should do about it. We're going to look around the vet's area, probably post a few fliers. We consider the cat gone, as she was a stray we bought in and she was always skittish around strangers, I doubt anyone could successfully capture her for us.
What responsibility would the vet have towards us in a situation like this? We're bummed because we had a good relationship with this vet, although some of the employees are dumb as rocks, the care was always good. I'm just completely shocked something like this could even happen.
What is so bad about religion is that it fosters a primitive form of morality that hinders progress in virtually any domain beneficial to our modern world.
