An animal rescuer posted on Everyblock.com this week about 6-9 cats that were thrown out of a home. Their owner was a hoarder that was evicted, and the landlord put the cats that he left outside.
I’ve been keeping an eye on the posting to see if they still needed help. Today I randomly turned down a side street looking for parking for an appointment. And I saw a trap in a yard covered in a white sheet.
A woman was sitting in her car keeping an eye on the trap. We introduced ourselves and talked about TNR, and it turns out this was the place that the Everyblock posting was about. What a strange coincidence. Well, in animal rescue, especially, things always seem to happen when you think about them a lot. I wish it would work that way for the lottery.
The woman told me that so far two cats have been trapped and there may even be cats left inside the empty house. Neither scenario is very good for these cats.
