Cat Looking For Home After Her Owner Took Her To Vet To Be Killed Because She Didn’t Use Litterbox

Dutchess County, NY – A gorgeous cat is looking for a new home after she was nearly killed because she was not using a litterbox. According to the Dutchess County SPCA, the 13-year-old cat, Lulu, was brought to a veterinarian to be euthanized.

Lynne Meloccaro, the executive director of Dutchess County SPCA, explains:

“We received a call from a local veterinarian about a cat whose owners requested euthanasia because she was not using her litter box. When the animal was deemed healthy, the vet persuaded the owner to sign ownership of Lulu over to them, and then they asked us to take Lulu, which we immediately did.”

On April 11, the shelter posted Lulu’s photo to Facebook, writing:

Lulu is breathing easily again after she was brought in to be euthanized due to a “common” and easy-to-resolve litter box issue.

Lulu’s adoption profile reads:

A quiet home is what she seeks
Where she can rest and be at peace
A warm bed is all she needs
To curl up and drift off to sleep
So won’t you open your heart and home
To this lovely feline all alone?
Lulu is waiting for you to see
That she’s the perfect cat for your family.

Lulu has a propensity for urinary crystals so will need a prescription diet indefinitely.

  • Good with children over 12
  • Housetrained
  • NOT Good with cats

  1. A 13 year old cat doesn’t just stop using its litter box without reason. If it was deemed healthy then the reason either lies with the owner ( too lazy to clean the box regularly) or there has been some change in its environment that has stressed it out ( furniture moved around, change in litter type etc) Presumably arthritis has been ruled out. But you don’t decide to EUTHANIZE ThE CAT BECAUSE IT IS PEEING OUTSIDE THE BOX!!! What is wrong with these fucking people that own cats but don’t take the time to understand them?

    • it can be cats, dogs any living thing. this is the world we now live in. when something is inconvenient just destroy it. christ, they want to start euthanasia programs for people here in the good ole USA. what chance does a poor animal have against these soulless scumbags.

    • These vile and evil monster bastard owners deserve to be brought to Justice and jailed. These lowlife bastards should not be allowed to own a precious Cat or Dog.What the hell did they commit against this precious and innocent Cat to stop the precious and innocent Cat from using its litter box.The lowlife monster bastards committed something horrible.
      The vile and evil lowlife monster Owners of this precious and innocent Cat are soulless scumbags. They should be eradicated from our Planet.
