I have asked my vet to "tak" t me if he thinks I am becoming a hoarder. I wish I had a mllion dollars, I would have such a rescue place for all animals, but until then, I feel that my limit is 7 cats both fnancially and physically.

There are probably some hoarder types; a typical symptom would be someone who doesn’t spay/neuter nor provides veterinary care….therefore, they may not be the “typical” hoarders as we know them. The CT woman was definitely not one! She was extremely well-respected, a caring and capable woman whose life and the lives of the cats in her care have been ruined forever, thanks to overzealous officials and a disgruntled person! The state didn’t even allow her home-visit vet to vouch for the health and treatment that he prescribed for cats in her care to testify on her behalf! I can tell you that there’s a hidden agenda in CT to put all small cat rescues out of business to allow stray, feral, abandoned cats to be rounded up and killed! BTW, we are NO-KILL, no cages; in addition to cats in home surroundings, we also have several cat condos and enclosed outdoor runs in warmer months.

Just because someone has a title does not mean they are OK.
