I don't know how many times I have to say this on this dang forum. I've rescued many, many, many animals that stupid, useless people have tossed out like garbage. I have no respect for a single human who would look at animals as disposable objects, or puts an object above their life.

BUT, I have to feed them first so I can gain their trust. Sometimes it takes awhile - sometimes it takes a long while, and sometimes, they never trust, fully. But I sure as hell am not going to turn my back on them because someone is afraid that a cat might rest underneath their lemon tree in the backyard.

And yes, I am much, much better than the scum humans who let their animals run all over the neighborhood.

Thanks for playing.

If feeding stray cats wasn't criminalized, she wouldn't have been forced to go to court.

That's what we're talking about here.

I worked with someone who had a neighbor who fed feral cats. Two became thirty over the course of a few years. They spread fleas to pets, got into scraps with pets requiring trips to the vet, dug up peoples gardens, clawed and ruined the wood on decks.

Compassion for animals at the expense of having compassion for your neighbors is inexcusable.
Sue the cats.

This old lady didn't directly harm anybody.

Or are you one of those type who want to ban big-gulps and firearms?

Sure you are. Maybe you do. Talk is cheap and most enablers only talk. We aren't talking about the person who feeds them for a week. Then catches them and takes them to a shelter. We are talking about the idiots that make it a mission to feed every stray around, drawing them to their yards and the yards of their neighbors. People like the Cat lady this thread is about.

I grew up on a farm and lived my adult life in farm country. Thats where most city idiots dump their unwanted pets. After all the farmer will want their cats, right?

No one cares about a cat resting under their lemon tree. We care about strays urinating on our homes and property. We care about the strays destroying our gardens.. Walkinging on our cars and damaging the paint.

Yes I value my paint, my garden and a cat stench free yard more than I do the stray cat's freedom.

The lady the thread is about is classic. She imposes her sense of charity upon all her neighbors. Any way you claim to be the responsible animal rights person. Thats wonderful, you would be a rarity. Most just feed them and feel like they are heroes.

As for playing? No I dont play. I also dont draw strays to my property and impose my sense of charity on my neighbors.

Funny how you claim to live in upstate NY, yet you made that last comment. Ever hear of Buster's Law?

I suggest you take a little journey over to the pet forum. Go back and read. I've stated this several times, I've shared photos of those that I rescued (I'm not an organization, I simply do this on my own, with my own damn money), several times. Some of them I have kept, some of them I have "fostered" while working with a rescue to find them homes.

I don't "draw" anything. People dump them, as you just admitted. I take care of them. What have you done besides p*$$ and moan about it?

I suggest that you know wth you're talking about before ASSuming anything about a poster.

Do you keep them inside, or let them continue to run around the neighborhood? That's what this woman should have been doing with her neighbor's cats - trap them, bring them inside HER HOME (rather than allow them to keep roaming on other people's property), s/n the ones who need it, and then find homes for them, and taking proper ownership of the ones that don't get adopted. Just feeding them is no help, because cats can find their own food, and outdoor cats are still subjected to the dangers that come with the outdoors, whether they are being fed or not.

Yeah, that's exactly the type of person I am.

What a stupid line.

All the damage you described can be done by neighbor's pets. And in my experience has been done by pets allowed to roam free.

My state has a leash law that applies to cats. Many pet owners ignore it because it is their cats G-d given right to go outside.

My cat only leaves this house to go to the vet. The 2 feral will be neutered when I get a trap. If more show up, they will be trapped and turned over to the county. As it is now, the feral run off the pets, and that's a good thing I'd go to jail for.
Neighbors pets weren't doing those things, however, the feral cats were.

There will always be thoughtless pet owners but at least they can be held accountable. This business of 'they're not really my cats' left nobody accountable in my coworkers situation. Nobody did anything. Authorities asked her to stop feeding the cats but she wouldn't.

This isn't an anti-animal thing, this is a thoughtless neighbor thing. What we do can impact others whether people want to admit that or not.
