Hi I’m new, I came across this website while looking for advice on introducing an outdoor cat to my indoor kitties. Sorry if this is in the wrong spot It’s kind of a difficult situation, I’ll tell you what happened and I need advice on what to do. Saturday Hubby and I were replacing some siding on the house when I heard my neighbour (home behind us) yell something and as I looked over he’s tossing their cat out of the house and across the yard, I didn’t see how he tossed her, just that she went about 20-30 feet across the yard and at least 8-10 feet in the air. Well I started yelling – a lot more expletives than I usually use in conversation – and neighbour retreated in to his house quickly. His fiancée came out of the house then with their kids to take some photos in the garden. She made some off-hand remark, while being completely unable to look me in the eye, about not eating of the counter. Their kitty was around them while they were taking pictures and then sprinted away when a truck pulled up into their yard, NEARLY being run over by the truck. Well the fiancée and kids started laughing about it and one of the kids says “you should just do it [run over the cat], I don’t even care.” I went back over the fence to start yelling again, but Hubby decided he had heard enough and told me to go inside and grab a plate of kitty food, and HE went over to the fence and called them to come over for a talking too. (He’s a VERY patient person, unlike me who is very quick to anger). Apparently they wouldn’t come over to talk with my husband, they all just retreated indoors he said. I coaxed the kitty through the fence (hole) with some food and she ate about 2 cups worth, no wonder she was eating off the counter, nothing but skin and bones. I can count her ribs through her fur. She spent the afternoon in our yard following us around the yard. She’s really friendly with us and when we would take breaks she would come over and purr and sit on our laps. On Sunday, the kitty came running when I called her and I gave her some food and wanted to follow me in the house, which DH and I are fine with, she’s a sweet girl. I left the door open and let her poke her head in, but we have 2 indoor kitties already (7yrs & 3 yrs) So she kept getting frightened of the other two and running out. I’m not sure the best way to handle this. TL;DR version: Witnessed abuse, feeding neighbour cat, she’s in heat and wondering about the questions below: [if !supportLists]1 1. [endif]How ethical is it to steal someone else’s pet? Obviously they’re not feeding her and they don’t treat her well. [if !supportLists]2. 2. [endif]She’s about 4-5 months old, because I’m almost sure she’s in heat. She’s really vocal and nipples are swollen and she’s keeping her butt up in the air. [if !supportLists]3. 3. We’re still living in our starter home (moving 1-2 years, just fixing up the starter for sale, hence the siding repairs) it’s really small, just a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom dealie and if we just took neighbour kitty, the only place safe room for her would be the bedroom, which would mean locking out the current indoor kitties from sleeping with us. (which they would hate, spoiled things. Lol) Obviously I’d like to take her and have her spayed right away so she doesn’t end up with kittens. Husband says we should just take her have her spayed and tattooed and then neighbours can’t prove she was theirs to begin with, but it seems so underhanded. I need encouragement, is that the right thing to do?
