Neighborhood drama. Which side should win?

My neighbors are fighting because Jason, who lives next door, accidentally ran over Lisa's cat. Lisa wasn't home and no one in the neighborhood knows her phone number, so Jason couldn't contact her to tell her what happened. It was only midday and he couldn't just leave the cat on the street with a broken leg and panting, so he took the cat to a local vet. He went to Lisa's house later that evening when she came back from work to explain the situation.

She was relieved at first when she heard the cat was okay, but she got angry when they discussed who should pay for the vet bill. I don't know the exact amount, but the bill was very expensive. Lisa thinks Jason should pay because he ran over the cat, and Jason thinks he saved the cat's life by taking it to the vet.

What do you think?

People who let their cats roam outdoors are asking for trouble. She should pay.

Jason should contribute. The cat didn't run under his wheels

Split the cost. Lisa shouldn't let her cat out, especially when she isn't home.

Agree with R6: Splitting the bill seems fair.

R2 has it right - it is the owner’s responsibility.

If you leave your possessions unattended they can easily come to harm.

Your neighbor’s big mistake was not finishing what he started.

I don’t understand people who let their cats outside and then get outraged when the animals get hurt.

I would never let my cat outside, but if I did, I'd be home. I close up my dog door when I'm out cause the pool guy has left the back gate open before. I'd rather put pads down then risk my dog being out and I don't even know it. They should both pay and Lisa should be slapped viciously.

R11 is your pool guy hot?

Cat owner here. Lisa is 100% responsible.

R12 He's alright. He's flaky though, and super not friendly. I think I'm getting rid of him.

A similar situation happened to my mom. She let her dog out in the front yard, without a leash. The dog proceeded to chase chase a neighbor cat up a tree. The cat fell out of the tree, and broke a leg. My mom paid for the cat’s vet bill. I thought that they should’ve split it, since they were both bad pet owners. In my mom’s defense, she is 80 and grew up on a farm.

I think Jason should pay. I know it sucks for him but he ran over the poor cat.

Lisa should pay. Bad cat owner.

Some cats are simply outdoor cats all their lives. But in that case, you have to accept the risks. Lisa should pay, and thank Jason for being kind enough to take the cat to the vet for her.

Is Jason a hottie?

She was not on a farm when the dog attacked the cat, and old age is absolutely no excuse for a misbehaving dog. If she was too old to control it she needed to re-home the dog.

Does automobile insurance ever cover animals that were run over?

by Anonymousreply 21February 10, 2024 8:56 PM

That depends on the size of the policy R21.

When you unfold it!!
