The great cat debate continues
Readers, below is an email that was sent from a poster regarding the cat trapping. Please read on:
Blogger, below is an email that was sent to respond to a patch author doing an article regarding the comment left on here about the pending cat trapping. Please share this with your readers. To clarify, as of today, I have received one email from neighbors. So those stating that dozens of emails have been sent are bold face lying and instead of being part of the solution have chosen to stir the pot and continue the problem. Below is the correspondence. Thanks for sharing.
Camille, Thanks for emailing. I think our efforts have been vilified by the readers of both sites and the neighborhood email groups.
1) We aren’t running random and entering peoples properties chasing loose cats. That was never mentioned. We have received about 18 emails asking for help at specific addresses and locations on private, home owner or rented properties.
2) All cats will be checked for microchip, ear notching and tags. This was stated in the original post. Any cats matching these requirements will be released.
3) We are not “running rogue” to kill the cats. We are trying to minimize the destructive pattern that has been persisting for many year.
Neighbors tend to forget that while they support something or some cause, their neighbor may not share the same view. We need to realize that all neighbors have rights. For most they have attempted to solve the problems without trapping. What we are doing is not illegal. We are helping neighbors trap cats. Hope this helps.
