I slept with a veterinarian for 18 years.
We have four beautiful daughters who are all exploring the world in their own way.
I also have no doubt she would kill a cat for practicality.
Me and my dairy farmer friend Jim are all for that.
But I often lay in bed, wondering, if she could castrate cats at the kitchen table, what fate might befall me?
“Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.”
The Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners ruled Tuesday that Kristen Lindsey, the veterinarian who posted a photo of a dead tabby cat named Tiger with an arrow through its head on her Facebook last year, will have her license suspended for one year where she will not be able to practice.
After, she will be able to practice under conditions of probation for four years.
Tuesday’s hearing was the last in a string of debates on what action to take, if any, against Lindsey, after her photo incited international uproar from animal activists.
Lindsey, a veterinarian since 2012, was fired from her position at the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham and put under investigation by the Austin County Sheriff’s Office last April after she posted a photo holding a dead tabby cat named “Tiger” with a arrow through its head with a caption reading:
“My first bow kill, lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it’s (sic) head! Vet of the year award… gladly accepted.”
The clinic that fired Lindsey, 33, released a statement shortly after that saying: “We are absolutely appalled, shocked, upset, and disgusted by the conduct.”
Yup, that fits with the vet I used to sleep with.
