Harassment by a vet tech because I declawed my cat

////Harassment by a vet tech because I declawed my cat

Question

I adopted a cat in June. We've been having behavioral issues with her from day one. I inquired with the cat's foster mom about the cat being relocated to another home. After a few days, I reconsidered and wanted to continue trying to help the cat adjust. The foster cat mom is a vet tech at a local vet clinic, but not the clinic I take my animals to. She took it upon herself to contact my vet office and request my cat's medical records without my consent. She found out I declawed my cat and she flipped out. She then harassed me via text demanding the cat be returned to her. I found out from my vet that she told them her vet office was treating my cat and she needed the records. It was all lies. I contacted the adoption company about her actions and they were firing her. I want to know if I can take legal actions against her? She harassed me for two days before I got her to stop. I'm fearful that she may try to forcefully take the cat because she has my home address. What can I do?

Answer

I suggest you keep your cat in your home so people who may want to steal the cat won’t have access to the cat. People who believe they are being harassed may also contact the police.
