If a cat attacks my cat in my garden and requires to go to

Customer Question

If a cat attacks my cat in my garden and requires to go to the vet, will the other cat's owners be liable for the vet bill?

Hello,

 

Yes, they will. This is because "but for" the other cat's attack, your cat would not be injured. If the owner of the other cat is not willing to pay, you can take them to small claims court for the vet bills. You can also ask for the cost of having to bring the action in the first place.
