This was posted on a horse rescue board where I am also a member. Chehalis is about 30 minutes south of Olympia and about and hour and a half south of Seattle, WA or an hour and a half north of Portland, OR.
They want to turn the poor cat into a lab rat. She's already been abandoned by her owners. I don't want to see her be let down by people a second time.
My name is Vandal. I am a buff tabby and white fixed female cat with medium length hair. I currently reside at the Chehalis/Centralia Veterinary Hospital in Chehalis.
My previous humans did not want/could not afford my surgery after my hind leg was broken. The kind vet at the clinic fixed my leg anyway and has let me stay until I find a new home.
I am very sweet and have not complained one bit about having to stay in a cage while my leg has healed. I don't put much weight on it yet, but I might later on. I need to be indoors. I might like other cats and gentle children to live with too. I wouldn't be too much trouble at all. I am good at using my litter box. And I am not choosie about what food I eat. I am quiet and like attention but am not very demanding about it. I am young, about one or two years old and still like to play with people or on my own.
I over heard that someone may be taking me home, but it didn't sound very good. I might go to a vet school to live. There, I heard, they will be teaching students to draw blood and use catheters along with other things. I don't know what all that is, but I don't think it sounds very nice. I don't know when or if that will really happen.
Don't you or someone you know have a couch that needs a pretty kitty on it? Someone even who might be alone and like a friend to come home to?? I could do that job! I could even try and keep mice away while your at work or asleep!
If you would like to know more about Vandal, please call the Chehalis/Centralia Veterinary Hospital. They are located at:

She is in the clinic where I work as a pet groomer. I go and visit with her when I have time. She is very sweet. And I would take her if I already didn't have so many cats.... I don't want her to go to be a guinea pig and live in another cage for who knows how long. I do imagine that should be good with other cats, dogs, and gentle children as long as they don't bowl her over until her leg gets stronger. It's already mended and had the pin taken out a week ago. It's just stiff and shaved for the surgery, but the hair will grow back in a few months.
