I'll try her again this evening too. Several animal control agencies in the Bay Area actually notify their local feral groups when an ear tipped cat comes in. Cats are actually pulled from animal control and returned to their colonies around here. By comparison with what I hear about elsewhere, it's really impressive.

I have always had a negative impression of ac too but I have seen really good rescue/ac working relationships in the SF/Bay Area and my local ac really impressed me with their light touch during my house fire in August and in the current dealings with a really ugly hoarder situation.

I have an unreasonable fear of animal control, I think of them like I would the gestapo. Sally doesn't seem to be panicking the way I might, but she is quickly taking steps to address any concerns they may have and to locate additional fosters for the cats in her possession. Say a prayer everybody, Nina SHE HAS TO MOVE THE CATS. I don't care if she has to board them, or whatever, but if AC has been there, they ARE COMING BACK. For that matter if I absolutely had to I would let them outside to keep AC from getting their evil hands on them, but that would be a last resort... Please, for the safety of the cats, she has to move them. Of course I am not in that area....but if she needs a shoulder to cry on I can call her tonight. When will AC leave rescuers alone....

We have very specific laws on the books governing seizures, very rescue friendly state laws. Sally is in the San Jose area, about an hour south of me. I'll call her and get some details. I know California rescue law pretty well. Let me find out what's going on here. She is likely to have a grace period to improve conditions and network with other rescues to make arrangements for the animals. But let me find out what's really going on. -- Rescuties - Saving the world, one cat at a time. http://www.rescuties.org Vist the Rescuties store and save a kitty life! http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect-home?tag=rescuties-20 Check out our Memsaic! http://www.memsaic.com/app/launch.cfm?sid=08D2CAB2A6E9 http://www.zazzle.com/rescuties* Please help Clarissa! http://rescuties.chipin.com/clarissasheart http://www.change.org/rescuties
