Someone tried to stop my sister from doing her work with cats in 2003. A vindictive neighbor complained about her cats, even though she had a cattery, cared for the cats well, saved lives, nursed many back to health, and did not let them roam. The Palm Beach County Animal Care (yeah right) and Control raided her home and took her cats. Too much detail is still hard to even think about. But the judge in court dismissed the case and said of my sister "This woman deserves an award for what she does!" The ACC jumped the gun, though, and did not wait for the judge's decision. Unfortunately, that doesn't bring back 60 cats - including Dusty, a 15-year-old cat who belonged to our grandfather when he passed away...we would have liked to have kept Dusty in our family, and their excuse for "euthanizing" her was "she was too old to adopt." They didn't even give her a chance! The media only saw what they wanted to see, and sensationalized the whole story and tried to make my sister look bad.

But we Hansens are not quitters! My sister bought a big sprawl of propert in a nearby county. The palm Beach County Animan (so-called) Care and Control can just kidss our @$$es!!!!!!

So, I am an avid, passionate supporter of no-kill animal shelters, and I highly support anyone who does this kiund of work.

People completely suck! I can't believe the neighbor did that. The poor cats. I'm glad your sister took all these cats in and took care of them.

There was a case around here about some lady who had many cats in her house. You think she took care of them but she was a bit psychotic to be honest with you. She had court cases in so many things including trying to get her cats back when they were taken away. I'm glad that she didn't get them back after what she did to them. I can't even go into detail about what she did with them it makes me so upset.

To say the whole thing pissed (and pisses) me off would be putting it mildly. What happened to my sister and her cats broke her heart, broke my heart, infuriated many of our family members, etc. etc. It made me an even more passionate activist against such things than I was before. When I got the news, at work up here in Nashville, I was so upset that day that I had to leave work.

This isn't my cat, but a former roommate's cat. Her name is Smokey. The roommate and cat lived here for 2 years. I'm still friends with that roommate and Smokey's doing fine. I know she has some Siamese in her. She's got the meow to prove it!!

So the other day, I get up, take a shower, and come back to my room to find the largest pile of cat shit ever (it was seriously longer than the cat!). I guess I didn't notice it w/o my contacts in when I went straight to the bathroom after waking up. I couldn't figure out who did it and why, but I'm positive Posh did it since she's the only cat that stays in my room all night. I'm so used to her meowing and singing that it doesn't wake me up anymore. The night before, Melissa left the catfood out after feeding time and Posh and Beckham grazed unsupervised for probably an hour. Poor Poshie! All stuffed with extra food and me not waking up to let her at the litter box! Boy did I learn my lesson. I think my carpet is now cleaner than it was before Poshi dropped that dump!

That exact same thing happened with one of the shelters here which my organization used to work with. It was a really small place, the lady who ran it put her heart and soul into it and did a wonderful job in a crap neighborhood that nobody else was willing to bother with. It's a whole long story but bottom line, she got on the wrong side of a debate with ACC (given this is Chicago, imagine what happens when an individual citizen gets into a dispute with a powerful city agency) and they came in, seized the animals, killed most of them in the first 24 hours, and then fabricated a bunch of lies about the woman who ran the shelter. It was horrible.

Of course they look the other way when actual hoarders (like the person U2Girl1978 mentioned) keep hundreds without caring for them....

Thanks for all the support, MG, Sicy, etc, and for all you are all doing!!!

Petsmart had a little grey kitten available for adoption yesterday. I went there to get Worf a little cat "stepstool" so she could get on my bed easier (she's getting old ), and of course we had to stop to look at the cats up for adoption. Unfortunately, Worf does not "play well with others" .
