- Glendale, CATifornia
When we moved, my ex was up at the house and I was down here, so he handled everything. I expressed the wish that if possible, we get a buyer who loves animals, especially cats, and that would agree to letting the wild snakes up there, especially the big Pine-Gopher snake I loved, live. We got a great buyer who had cats already and who agreed to let the snakes be. More people love cats than not. So I would open up my mouth and ask prospective buyers, or email them or whatever, to see if they would love and care for the cats. A lot of people ARE amenable to that And according to experts I trust, truly feral cats actually do better without human intervention. They are experts at catching their prey, which is primarily small rodents. These are found everywhere. They will also eat insects if need be, and maimed/sick/old/baby birds they can catch, which is absolutely natural and beneficial to the environment, bird survival, and us all. So don't lose heart.Well I am still going to old house to feed the cats, but now I really do have to stop. I have tried and tried to find help and nobody responds. I mean nobody. I even called a cop to see if they'd take kittens to humane society to be put up for adoption, no response. I called the only animal non profit in that town for help, no response. So anyway we have to put house up for sale here soon and I have to stop feeding them. It's not just me, my husband is of course involved too and we NEED to sell the other house. This makes me literally ill. I am so depressed about this I cannot even tell you. I know I have done as much as possible, but I can just imagine them trying to find food. This is heartbreaking. I will never feed another cat that is outside again because of this experience. There is no help around here and if there is I sure cannot find it. But a house with cats all around it won't sell and we cannot afford to keep it and just keep feeding cats. It's sad, but true.
