Leave kitty alone!

July 1st, 2013 · 91 comments

Writes Susan in Delaware: “My family and I live in a very large apartment complex and recently discovered a mother cat and her five kittens living in the bushes. We called a local trap/neuter/return charity so that we could get the kittens and her mom basic vet care, shots, and neutering. We posted notes next to each trap explaining exactly what we were doing, and that all housecats with collars/tags would be immediately released.”

Over the course of a week, Susan says, no non-feral cats were caught, but for whatever reason one of the neighbors decided to steal all of the traps and replace them with this lovely note.

FORGOTTEN IDIOTS We know you have no life but LEAVE OUR CATS ALONE and find something else to do with your sorry ass life. Some of us have Cats who we let out and have all their shots and we don't need your

“The kicker of all this is that trapping feral cats actually protects the health of house cats,” Susan says. “Even if their cat did get accidentally picked up it would have gotten free vet care, since I’m the one coughing up $35 per cat for the honor of watching, baiting, and setting the traps multiple times per day.”

Adds Susan: “The ‘Yetters’ mentioned is a nearby liquor store. I assume the writer of this note spends a lot of time there.”

    I don’t want to get into an “inside vs outside” argument… but if you want to keep people away from your cats, and keep OTHER CATS away from your cats, they shouldn’t be outside. Once they’re outside, they’re free to do as they please and if they’re on other peoples’ property, then those people can do what they want.

      Indoors. Cats killing wild animals is a no-no, so keep them indoors at night to deny them the opportunity to be nocturnal hunters.. Every night. The diurnal birdlife will thank you.

      Better yet, don’t have a cat.

      Why, you’re welcome!

      We had a former ‘outdoor-hunting enthusiast’ that caught a baby rabbit once. The bunny froze in terror and we found her holding it in her mouth going ‘Uh, okay I wasn’t expecting to catch one. Now what?’ I just walked up, detached huntress from woodland creature, and walked away with a very confused kitteh.

      She started getting bullied by another cat and coyotes become more prevalent so she’s inside now. Incidentally, someone else took her for a catch and release spay at some point because she has a tattoo from the place that does that. We appreciated not having to pay for it, but we got a rabies shot, etc. just in case. You can’t be sure that’s been taken care of. The shots these cats are supposedly getting from the notewriter have benefits, but people who don’t know the cats might trap them again. They should really microchip those to indicate their status as a stray and when they’ve had rabies, feline leukemia, etc. shots.

      I don’t know if the standard cat microchips will do that. Right now, shelters do microchip all cats, but it’s so they can return them to homes. Though, it is a good idea. Lots of areas, including my neighborhood, have a spay and release program to keep the ferral cat population down.

      They commonly tip the ears of ferals being released. The cut the tip of one ear off while the cat is under. Easier to see, especially since you don’t want to handle a conscious feral long enough to scan a microchip if you want to keep your fingers.

    Dear drunken poster, the goal of the traps was to keep the (not my) “trash cats” away from your precious kitties. Also, have you been smoking those crack cats behind Yetter’s?

    Well, I kind of wouldn’t want them to just take my cats either… And what if some of those cats have allergies or something that that the doctors wouldn’t know about? But then again where I live there are no feral cats (or at least not that I’ve ever seen one) and at least all the females are spayed. So I’m not really familiar with the problems that come with these feral little kitten factories :D

      If I’m understanding correctly, the notes on the traps indicated that any licensed/collared cats would immediately be set free, so the only cats getting “free” vet visits would be feral cats and naked pets.

      I’m American and I get it. You get to leave your cat outdoors so it shits all over my yard attracting fly’s and all kinds of yuck. If you live on a farm with no neighbors for miles and miles, fine diddly dandy. If you live in suburbia clean your own cat’s POO out of YOUR LITTER BOX. There’s also leash laws in my town. NO domestic animal is allowed off leash to roam.

      I pick up after my dog, hummm… wonder if it makes good window caulking for my NEIGHBOR who allows 4 cats to roam……

      The deal with cats is we feed them in exchange for affection – unlike dogs, we are not their masters, and they are not our slaves. Keeping them indoors fails to do justice to the potential richness of their lives independent of humans.

      I’m Team Indoors. My two cats were generally terrified to go outside in more populated areas, so it was never an issue. They loved living on my Grandmother’s farm for a while, and when I moved to a rural-suburban neighborhood they started going outside during the day. The one who stayed inside (by choice) is still with us. The one who liked being outside (but still very close to the house) disappeared last summer, probably eaten by a hawk or owl, or maybe bitten by a rattlesnake.

      Obviously, having my cats indoors was/is better for them. The point of having any pet is taking good care of them. Allowing cats outside, especially in an urban area drastically decreases their life-span as they can get hit by cars, etc.

      No Additives: My family had the opposite happen with our two cats. We recently had to put one down due to her body completely shutting down. She was 16 1/2. Her brother will be 17 soon and he was the more outdoor-sy of the two.

      He stays inside more now because he’s getting old and decrepid.

      So the point of cats is to have them around to kill all the native wildlife and to let coyotes and snakes eat them?

      Rainlight – it’s decrepit. I’m not even being a jerk on purpose – apparently a lot of people think there is a “d” at the end – not sure why. But yeah, it can work either way for cats. I think in general you have to use your best judgment and hope for the best. I loved the fact that I didn’t have to clean a littler box when I had an outdoor car but I will say that I worried a LOT when it took forever to come back!

      No, I live next to a fairly busy street and we’ve begun having coyote incursions into the area, so I’m pretty sure my furbabies will be remaining indoor kitties, thank you.

      Although I’m perfectly happy to help with any trap-neuter-release programs for local feral cats. I don’t mind ferals, but I would like to know that they’re healthy and not continuing to replicate themselves.

      “The whole point of cats”? I’m confused- I thought the point of having a cat (or any pet, for that matter) was for companionship. How could my cat do that if he’s never in my house/apartment/whatever with me? What do you want a pet for if you’ll only see it at feeding time? I guess it makes sense if you live on a farm and you just want the cat to kill rats in your barn or something, but that doesn’t apply to most people.

      Thanks TuesdayPillow. I couldn’t, for the life of me, remember how to spell it. I will say that the male did bring home some small dead things during his younger days, but nearly all were rodents and shrews. My dog has found more birds then the cats ever did.

      Though one of said birds was already dead when he found it, we figure. Probably left but one of the roaming cats in our neighbourhood.

    UGH! That’s so freaking annoying. This “note” isn’t even funny…it just pisses me off. My mom and I do rescue work and also lots of work with feral cats as well. It’s imperative to trap and have them spayed/neutered. And yes, it comes out of YOUR pocket. It isn’t free. And most of the time, those traps (Have-A-Heart traps) are on LOAN. Because they are too freaking expensive to purchase! So that idiot that just took them…shame on them. I feel for you Susan :(

    if you care for your cats and let them go outside? they should be microchipped and collared. THAT is called responsible pet ownership. firmly team Susan!

    • #9.1   Collars!?

      I agree about the micro-chips, but I’ve not collared any of my cats in several years. I saw a cat that had got it’s collar caught on a branch in a hedge and starved to death once. We used to collar our cat before that but he kept coming home naked. He was smart enough to get out of it. Keeping him in collars got expensive, and every time we did we risked him getting stuck or choking himself.

      Quick release collars aren’t always readily available or reliable. So my vote is microchips yes, collars no way! Or indoor cats.

      Mostly I vote for indoor cats as it’s safer for them and for local wildlife (although me keeping one cat indoors won’t make much of a difference, especially with all the strays about). I would say that there are risks to keeping cats inside though which should take precedence at certain times. For example, a single pregnant woman with an indoor litter trained cat might want to move it outside for the duration of her pregnancy as there is a risk of toxoplasmosis to her and Junior. And once you’ve started keeping the cat outside, how much easier would it be to keep it that way until after Junior is past the crawling/put everything in their mouth stage.

      The Elderly people/ people with compromised immune systems shouldn’t really keep a litter tray for a cat either. There are ways to mitigate the risks but they can be a lot of hassle and difficult for already ill or frail people.

      We tried collars on our cats, too. We got the quick release ones to avoid the problem the previous poster had. The boys quickly figured out that if they had a wrestling match they could tear off each other’s collars. One of the boys figured out how to break his collar entirely on his own. Only the girls kept theirs on (and I think my little white/grey girl thought her purple collar looked pretty on her, since she didn’t even attempt to scratch it off).

      But the one that does go outside is microchipped.

      @”COLLARS?!”:

      My cats wear a kind of collar called SafeCat. It is designed to snap open if it gets caught on something. They work extremely well, actually. My girls are both indoor kitties, but their collars have never failed to fall off when they’ve gotten caught on anything. You should check it out.

    This person deserves to be beaten with the cages they stole. This would only affect your cat if they:
    A) Don’t have a collar.
    B) Aren’t spayed/neutered.

    If you haven’t done either of those things, but you still let your cat wander freely, you don’t qualify as the cat’s owner.

      I disagree. My cats kill bugs that get into my apartment and don’t expect me to do favors for them afterward like my roommate does. They’re just happy they got to hunt and then eat a bug. I find that very useful, especially when I think back to my cat-less days when I had to kill all my own bugs myself. Those were hard times.

I bring her inside most nights, and she has a collar with a bell which prevents her from sneaking up on birds and other critters.

      Our cat was indoor/outdoor for the majority of her life. She would stay indoors at night and in the afternoon, but we would let her out in the morning until we got home from school so she could chill on the front porch and go to the bathroom in our bushes. We only stopped doing that for the last year of her life, because she started to go a bit senile from old age. It was weird having a litter box after 21 years of not worrying about cat poop.

      She never ran away or killed anything. She was always on the porch, in the sun, when we got home. Her being a partial outside cat was one reason my mom refused to have her declawed. She wanted her to be able to defend herself in case she got in a fight with another cat.

      That cat was wonderful, and I really miss her.

      That loud noise you hear? Probably not fighting…

    I was going to jump in on the indoor/outdoor debate, but I’m just so worn out from it. Do you think if we argue back and forth through one more post that any one person will change their mind? Will there be a single person who says, “You know, I never thought of it that way”? I really don’t think so. With that said, why do we bother? Let’s get back to the toilet paper roll under/over debate. That one has greater potential for resolution. I’ll start…UNDER!!

      Over for a child and pet free house, under if someone in the house is likely to unroll the entire thing at once.

      Good point, H. I never thought of it that way. See, this is what progress looks like. :) Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to let my cat out.

      OVER. It looks so much neater. Something about under just rubs me the wrong way…

      H’s point on children and pets is valid, though. We don’t have that issue in our house at the moment, but it’s worth keeping in mind for the future.

    Strictly team indoor kitty here. And sweet merciful mother of God, get your female cats fixed. I found out-by nearly losing my current kitty-that if they continue to go into heat, they can accumulate massive, horrifying amounts of pus in the uterus, causing it to rupture & painful, awful death by blood poisoning happens. Ugh.

      I had no idea about the accumulating pus thing. That’s horrifying.
      I had my female cats fixed because they make such an unholy racket when they’re in heat.

      Pyometra, yes. It can happen to unfixed female dogs, as well. It’s pretty awful!

      Also, a female cat’s chance of getting ovarian cancer goes up by 10% every time she enters heat. I don’t know the exact stat for dogs, but it also increases every time.

    I love this. The ad now showing on this site to me is for “Feliway Comfort Zone”. This is a diffuser for an artificial pherenome. The idea is to keep cats calm so they don’t scratch or spray.

    This whole thread needs some Feliway.

    You know how they talk about crazy cat people? This is what they mean.
    Cats bring out the wacky in everyone. Everyone has an opinion from “black cats are bad luck” to “they’ll smother the baby and take their breath away”.
    I think I wouldn’t mind if some of these guys fell asleep with a cat……smothering them.

    Some people don’t think before they type angry notes, do they?

    How dare you try to help cats that are out in the wild by giving them medical care and reducing the population of ferile cats, so THOSE cats, don’t hurt your precious indoor/outdoors! Some people’s kids, I swear. Common sense is so rare.

    I’ve never had anything but all indoor cats, whom I’ve made sure were neutered and given their shots and vet care. So the people acting like cats are all evil need to re-think their approach, and everyone needs to vet their cats. If you can’t afford to vet one, you can’t afford to own one. That has always been my policy. You can’t help it if you aren’t a millionaire and your cat has something catastrophic happen to the poor thing, and I contribute to things like that. But normal things like vaccinations and neutering need to be handled by responsible pet owners.

    Only one of ours goes outside willingly, and she’s dumb enough we don’t let her out without supervision because, for one thing, she was declawed by her original owners. The other cat likes to sit in the window and look, but is terrified of the outdoors.

    OK I understand who the notewriter means are the “idiots” even if I don’t agree, but who forgot them?
    “Hurting for a fix?” a fix of what, exactly? Of coughing up $35? The note makes no sense whatsoever.

    Indoor/outdoor cat? Well mostly indoor but it depends on where you live.
    We live in the city our cat is indoors only, I take her out on a leash when we visit my Mom who live at the countryside. I tried taking her out here and she freaked out and looked at me like “WTF is wrong with you?”
    I think indoor is best for most cats but if depends where you live.

    Well, I know what apartment complex that is the moment you mentioned Yetters. There is a bizarre mix of folks on that hill. 75% of the apartments are more than one story above ground with balconies. They must have flying cats.
