The other story. The man that reached out to me from Arizona because his mother was feeding ferals at her old house in the city and had a cat in the basement with suspected pregnancy, Ciara offered to help. I was told things were taken care of there by a rescue group, but Ciara didn't get the message on time, and contacted the old woman, and was let in the house, only to discover not only the cat still in the basement, but her five newborns! Well, not newborns, apparently they are walking and have their eyes open. So thumbs up to my friend for going the extra mile there. And to the others that offered their help. Apparently, I've been told, that the ferals outside have all been fixed. So mama and kittens are with my friend now.
|NIAGARA STREET CATS|
I had told the officer that it was me and other rescuers who have reduced the population of this spot from 20+ cats living behind the fence, to seven or so now. I told him that I couldn't move these cats across the street, or relocate them, as he asked, because you just can't do that so easily, and that the cats just wouldn't cross the street to the nice shelter I have there, they just won't do it. I also told him that most can't climb that fence to begin with. I told him those animals, that live in the crack of two buildings, were starving and I was their only source of food (along with another girl who goes there every other day). He then went over to the guy and I could hear this jerk say "I love animals", "They eat out of the dumpsters", I said out loud, 'oh sure, and they are stuffed by the time they are done each day, sure, you LOVE animals, don'tcha.' To me, this is pure animal cruelty, but legal cruelty. He has been dumping the two paper plates of food that are left there. These animals are starving. SOMETHING must be done. I've noticed the past two days, most can climb or go under the fence (scraping their bodies to do this) to get to this food, but there are at least two that can't. These cats are starving. SOMETHING must be done. I have very evil thoughts for this man.
Its people like him that we have such a problem in this city. That mentality. He doesn't understand how this helps to reduce the population. He only sees cats, and white people. Both of which he hates. I just know this.
I wish we could come up with a solution for this. Please help.
Have a good day.
