Our shelter has a large area where the cats roam free. She was on her way out and walked past a cat tree and reached out to pet a kitty and it lunged out and bit her hand. It got her on the top of the hand and between the first and middle fingers. A few hours later,her hand swelled up like a balloon! The doc gave her oral antibiotics,but the hand got worse as the day went on,and she ended up at the ER tonight for a few shots in her butt. the shelter called,the cat is not vaccinated against ANY diseases.
Mr. Kitty is going to be put down in the morning and rabies tested.
My aunt is getting a lawyer tomorrow. Hopefully she does not get any worse!
Any idea of what kind of compensation we're looking at? She's going to miss work,and I can imagine these doctor bills will be hundreds of dollars.

It may of been a feral cat or a cat that has been abused by a human. If she does sue, I hope she gives the money back to any animal shelter that is trying to find homes for these furbies. I do think your at your own risk when you go into a place knowing animals are loose.
