Last Supper at home
Evening all. Am sitting here with a bit of a sad and happy mix of heart. This evening was the last time I will be feeding the ferals. First, Teensy, the runt of all combined litters was taken home yesterday by my John's Social Worker. She saw all the kittens, and having three cats of her own, she asked to take one home. So she dropped Teensy at her vets and went back to work. Wonderful Lady.
The rest will be going to the farm. Code Compliance came by, to check our property. A yearly occurrence. Make sure we are all up to code. The Nasty Lady (and I use the term lighty - "lady" that is) told me that I was not permitted to have so many cats, feral or other wise!
And I had 15 days to comply or the pound would come take them!!!!!Well, I do believe my temper got the best of me, and she got called a few names she's surely never heard before!
I cried for about an hour, then started making plans. Fortunately for the darlin's, my farmer friends are taking 3 of the remaining kittens and two of the mama's and their kind neighbor lady is taking the rest as she has a large place as well.So they will all have wonderful fields and barns to hunt and play in.
I, however, am just sick at heart. After taking care of them every day and having them being such a part of our lives and routine I will deeply miss them! I am hoping the "Nasty Lady" has a flat tire on her damn car every day the rest of her life!
John also has put his foot down and said, no more feeding cats! He will not put up with seeing me upset like I have been for the last couple days! Basically I was just terrified that they would end up in the pound! I was very hesitant asking for more help from my farmers when they have already done so much! But as Angels, they'll be swooping in, in the morning, to take the last of my "Wild Bunch" to their forever homes.
Sadly, it looks as though the reign of the crazy cat lady of Guadalupe County is over. And the last days of the "Wild Bunch".
This is another tidbit of exotic Americana; the world of private zoos, exotic cats and…
This is an interesting and perhaps a landmark legal case regarding writing posts on Facebook…
