  1. I worry about the cats being at the shelter until court time. We all know shelters are a breeding ground for disease in a stressful environment. I think it sad that she had enough to worry about getting her home back into a livable condition and now this on top of it. This will keep people from taking their cats to emergency shelters if they fear they won’t get them back.

  2. As I read this I first thought that when you accuse an animal shelter of lying, you better have some proof because they would make it all more difficult to win custody back. Then of course being that the volunteer stepped forward to say the cats were fine and that she quit because of this gives the very good prospect that the case will go in the owner’s favor. The court has to conclude that the shelter lied and stole the cats. That’s a big conclusion to lay on them but they invited it. The court might then be compelled to investigate further the management of that shelter which is what I would do.

    Again we’re talking about North Carolina… one of the worst states to be in if you’re a cat or a dog so I’m surprised any of them care at all what happens to these cats. It must be a personal conflict; the shelter just didn’t like this woman. She’ll have to prove that somehow. If the court finds that the cats were in good condition when left there, they’ll have to conclude that. Looking forward to the outcome.

  3. On the basis that Rebecca is telling the truth (and she sounds very believable) the shelter is behaving disgracefully. I really can’t see the advantage in not returning the cats and if she wins her court case it would prove that the shelter has committed a theft. The police should then step in but they won’t.
