No, not flatheads or channels or blues! ***** cats! One of those worthless animals bit me at the local feed store on the 10th. The animal had no rabies shots so I was worried and spoke with my doctor who said to get into the emergency room at Medina Hospital. Well I spent 3.5 hours there and won't go into details but was told that cat bites are one of the worse and I would most likely get an infection. $50 of antibiodicts and homeward bound. Felt like crap on the 11th, little better on the 12th, OK on the 13th so I did some outdoor work and now on the 14th I am again pretty sick. I checked with the feed store and they had not been contacted by the health department as of the 12th so I decided to do some checking. The health department said they didn't receive the hospital report and as such nothing was done regarding the cat as of the 13th. Checked the hospital and they show that a fax was sent immediately on the 10th. They sent another early afternoon of the 13th and when I checked with the HD again in late afternoon they still had not looked at the received fax. I won't detail what their liesurely plans were regarding this matter but I would have been dead by that time had I contacted rabies! At this point in time I proceeded to tell the young lady I was speaking to that her planned course of action was unacceptable from a time standpoint, and I did so in a very emphatic fashion with well chosen words, all of which would be acceptable here on OGF. I was transferred to the supervisor and had to leave a phone message of equal emphatic wording. The supervisor returned my call after hours and informed that they had not seen a rabies case in many years and that is when I went off! I told her I did not want to be the first person in many years to contact and die from rabies due to her departments assumptions and lack of required action and also informed her I planned on tracking this to the end aswell as keeping a complete and detailed record of everyone I spoke to. There was a sidden change in attitude and she assured me that she had spoken to the store regarding a quarentine of the worthless animal and would personally see to it that it was followed up. Sometimes I think it might be a smart thing to simply open a lawsuit so public service departments funded by our tax dollars might wake up and start doing their job but I'll just sit back and watch how this is handled prior to moving in that direction. Just in case I do die from rabies I hereby will my new, unused boat to Lewis and my truck to Misfit. My walleye gear to Walleyeguy and the rest of the fishing equipment to OGF for a raffle with the proceeds going to ........?????
