You may be right...I don't think these are the same pictures I looked
at...I don't remember the inside at all...As somebody else said...Is
anybody livibg there or have they been abandoned???
I would think those inside pictures would be enough to show to a
local official and with rescue onboard, cages in hand get a sherif
The point is I guess...I don't believe in voting or writing letters
etc. on something that I have to take somebody elses word on unless I
know that person very well personaly...By those pictures they should be
able to handel the problem localy...
And even here in VT they have a very active feral program to support a
number of cats that live outdoors through our -30 degree winter nights
And for that matter..those happy ending nuns cats are moving to ski
country in NY...They may have to deal with a bit colder weather next

I did not mean to say you are doing

case, sorry if I wasn't clear. I know you do alot in other cases.
And this is the lush countryside?
The rescue that is working with Ms.
Harvey (she's already turned over 6 cats voluntarily) is working very
hard to be there when it all goes down, to try to save these cats from
going into the hands of the city animal control. Unlike you, I do not
believe that it is humane to let cats fend for themselves with minimal
shelter and food, they are domesticated animals, and I feel they
require a clean and safe living enviroment to thrive. Even minimal
shelter is questionable in this case, it must REEK of ammonia inside
that trailer that serves as their "shelter"! Cats have very sensitive
respiratory tracts, and being forced to find refuge in filth that reeks
of ammonia is very bad for them.
Please don't say I am doing nothing....True..I am doing nothing on
getting someone that may be doing a lot more than you are to save cats
from be ing shut down....
I asked for the proof that these cats were suffering....They may have
a couple junk piles but that has little to do on how the cats are being
cared for...In the lush country side shown in the pictures most cats
could survive quit well on their own and just having some very minimul
shelter and care is far better than being rounded up and pronounced too
sick to save and being PTS the same day...No time to get any rescue in
to save them unless like the nuns the rescue goes in with the sherif
and does the seizure...There just isn't room for these cats to remain
alive at an instance notice...
I just don't think writing a bunch of letter to officials complaining
is going to bring a happy ending to these cats....Over and over again
if you follow up a seizure most of the animals are PTS the same day....
And by the way..as far as doing nothing...Remember those 3 FeLV+ cats
you were going to take from NJ if you could set up
transportation...Well..It so happened that I had taken in an FeLV+ from
a few miles away down there just a month before...The same transport
that I used was readily still available and I was going to take the
remaining 2 positives...Fortunately the hole mess was taken care of
Yes...In the last 6 months I have lost 3 cats...But I have taken in 2
seniors left at my vets office to be PTS becouse our local no kill
shelter had no room for them...And we don't even have a big problem
here in VT...Also The shelter called me and asked if I could take a
beautiful long haired buff colored cat that had be brought in
stray...His ears half gone from frost bite...and FeLV+....Probably some
students kitten that grew up and got put outside at Green Mountain
My vet bills and food bills are well over $400 a month for my 27 rescue
cats and it all comes out of my pocket...
But you are right...I will not write letters to a sherif 1000 miles
away complaining about something that I don't have more proof of
without knowing that something other than death will come of it....
