Hello my fellow feral friends! I am very new to this community, but have already found so much support and help; I am forever grateful. The last 4 months for me have been exhausting and non stop fighting for my colony, which I have taken care of for 13 years. In February, I received a notice from my Community that I was in violation of a community rule, and that I was to stop feeding the feral cats immediately. I printed documentation from several sources, and made a clear and persuasive argument, and the community manager agreed to allow me to continue. There were some concessions, i.e. I would make feeding more discrete, I wouldn't leave the pans out all day, etc. This notice, after 18 years of living in this community, came from a neighbor who complained about property damage. I spoke to the neighbor, offered everything from a car cover to ultrasonic deterrents, and all was turned down. I did pay for the replacement of the A.C duct work. Last night I came home to a notice of eviction for failure to comply with previous notice (I live in a pre-manufactured community, so I own the home but not the land it sits on). I have been actively trying to reach the community manager all day as I am VERY confused. Now I risk losing my home AND the colony that I have worked so hard for. I am scared. I am tired of fighting. I am confused. This is the one thing that I am proud of in my life, why do they want to take this away from me? Why do they think that not feeding them will make them go away? Back in February, I had several organizations ready to pounce in and help. All the community had to do was approve it...and they never did. I have been plugging away, on my own, through a VERY fertile kitten season (lost 3 little ones to Fading Kitten Syndrome, which is another heartbreak story for another time). There is infinite more context to this whole story, but I have already blubbered on long enough. I guess I am just looking for someone to be on my side; to tell me I can do this, that I can get these people to understand the true BENEFIT of what I am doing. I can get through this, right?
