Glenda, It's okay to dwell on this issue as long as you turn it into a positive experience, as you are trying to do. It's very sad what happened, but I think that you are on the right track with your passion to change things for the better! Good!

There was that moment of communication. I was sure he just needed a little work and a little time to become adoptable. I will be hurting for the rest of my life over this! I was very upset he was put in with the 'wild cats" as I was told, that next morning. I said I did not believe he was wild! This one worker said he was "howling" at her. Another gal, at another point in time, only said, "He is not friendly." Well, he knew the hell hole he was in with people that did not try to be kind to him. I named him...he was going to be taken under my wing...My friend, asked me why this cat was so important to me, this when I told her I planned to take this cat on. I told her, because he was smart, beautiful, and a survivor and I respected him... I wanted to restore his faith in people...I wanted him to get a good home. I felt he deserved that. This cat had character...I could tell... He had slept one night on my friend's front porch...how feral is that? This cat wanted a home. I do not mean to be back here bringing all this up again...I have made everyone , including myself crazy with this...I will be bringing up a lot of points to the public here about this cat that I am bringing up here. I am going over certain points, getting ready to hit them... This shelter is just too reckless with our animals...This dark hole they confine the cats, they consider feral, is a place I want brought out into the light...This is crap! I am still so broken up over this I still am looking through my tears...At any given moment they could have someone's cat in their "feral holding section" . When I wrote to you guys with that letter: WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS HERE: I was writing as a person out in the public, someone who pays taxes...I could not believe they actually shut certain animals out of public view, like they are bad, diseased, horrible creatures...I feel we have a right to see and know what our local shelters are doing at all times. I probably have 10Xs the cat experience as any new hire down there who might decide a certain cat is"wild". They never even used the word , feral. I doubt they know the definition of feral... Well, he might have been a little difficult for me to stick my hand into the trap the night he was caught, but I knew he would come around , because he was calm when I talked to him. It was just going to take time to gain his trust...I absolutely knew I had something to work with...I'm so sorry guys!
