In some cases it might be bc you just flushed and its fresh water. Lol our cat drinks from the toilet.
Sad story. I just got home from work. (I work off shore so no guns) went to my moms before going home. There was a cat under her car. Looked like it was there for days. I thought it was dead. I walked up and nudged it with my boot. It did not move. I pulled it out and it tried to walk but fell over. It was in unrecoverable state. I thought the right thing to do was to take it out of its misery in a fast painless way. I dug a hole in my moms backyard and told my brother to git a gun because I did not have any with me. He brought me a 12ga with some number 8 I thank it was. I said no I need something bigger. I did not wont to take a chance on the first shot not taking it out. So he brought me a 3 1/2 OO buck. I said a little to big. He told me that's all he had other than hunting rifles. Of corse I wonted it to be as clean as possible. So I put a towel in the hole and laid him in it. I aimed just to the side of his head so that all the shot did not hit him. 2 pellets hit the right spot. No pain and no more suffering.
I draped the other 1/2 of the towel over him. My brother barred him. Even made a head stone.
I hunt a lot. And my brother dose to. But neither one of us wonted to take that shot. He did not even watch just turned his head and walked away. And I'm not a big fan of cats. But I still hate to see animals suffer.
