So the absentee landlord who owns the 2 story wood house next door decides that the
best way to get rid of the stinky basement smell is to bust out all the casement windows and leave the door open.


Combined with the weed jungle now 4 ft high that has taken over the backyard
has made next door into a lovely place for a cat colony.

New jersay has decided that cats are "free to roam" whichch means "we ain't picking em up pal your on your own and BTW its illeagel to feed them too."
wELL THIS IS GONNA BE AN INTERSTING SPRING

The good news is manda had decided ther is way too much action down there and will hang on the balcony instead of in the jungle.

:shrug::highfive::cat:

oh and there was dog poo by our garbage cans last night

look out for cat scratches on wood around the land that will translate to "cat house party, be there or be square!!"

haha.

yeah... good luck with that lol. hopefully the landlord will realize he's catering to the felines

Jim Hall
May 27th, 2009, 11:11 AM
lol ahhh well they already got memarked as a food source

onster
May 27th, 2009, 02:54 PM
yikes!!!

why arent you allowed to feed them???

Maybe you should tell the landlord tho before the kitties get too comfy? He might choose not so pleasant methods to evict them later :sad:

hazelrunpack
May 27th, 2009, 08:16 PM
Nothing like a little complication... :rolleyes:

So what's the penalty for feeding them?

Dee-O-Gee
May 27th, 2009, 09:34 PM
No laws in NJ for growing obnoxious weeds? Where I live, if a property has obnoxious weeds or out of control grass growth, the town would take care of the unsightly mess and send a clean up bill to the owner/landlord. :thumbs up

Good for Manda to chill out on the balcony instead of cat crawling in the jungle. :thumbs up

Some towns/cities here have by-laws, that peeps are prohibited from feeding strays :frustrated:

Good luck on getting the absentee landlord to clean up his property. I'm sure you will get it resolved.

The homeless kitties are a connected but separate issue. Once the property is cleaned up and secured there are still likely to be a bunch of poor homeless stray cats and ferals. I feel for them; it is not their fault, they are just trying to survive. The fault lies with the irresponsible owners who neglect their animals and refuse to spay and neuter them.

I did some googling and found there seems to be a couple of TNR (trap, neuter, release/return) programs in your area.

http://network.bestfriends.org/newjersey/news/30541.html
http://www.nj-ara.org/ferals/ferals.html

We have a similar program run by the Humane Society in Winnipeg and it has been helpful in helping the existing stray and feral cats as well as helping to keep them from reproducing to make the problem bigger. You might want to check into these programs and see if they can be of some help, if you have not all ready done so.

Once again, good luck and keep us posted.

dont believe everthing you belive on the web you will notice that they wrok with a group well this group does not return phone calls or emails

I hear you. I actually just looked into the TNR program here in Winnipeg yesterday after posting here and haven't even had my call returned. I then checked further and learned some interesting things about the program here. It is not what it is cracked up to be here either. It apparently used to be much better but the way it is being run now means a lot of potentially adoptable kitties are PTS. Its a long story but I understand where you are coming from on this.

wellsome good news the resue group who works with the ACo sais they will take the kits if i get them socialised

wellsome good news the resue group who works with the ACo sais they will take the kits if i get them socialised

Great news that you found a rescue that will take them. You've still got your work cut out for you if they are not used to human contact. Any idea how many kitties you're looking at here? Do you have any other neighbors or individuals who might be willing to help with fostering until they are ready to go the the rescue shelter? Good luck and keep us posted.

Jim Hall
June 3rd, 2009, 10:47 PM
being in the city the kits at least two in this round are pretty used to begging from people so its not too hard to get them pretty freindly and not running

the folks behind me all the yards are connected feed then too
the trick is to time it so they arent too preggers when you finally get them

Jim Hall
June 15th, 2009, 08:50 PM
ok update 2 of the stray kittens are getting very bold mama miow the breeder is on the slate for a snipping if i get some of the kits used to being handled i can get them to start so far they still prettty skittish

They had a bunch of feral cats living under a trailer where I used to work. Some would eventually come near me some wouldn't. I sure got hissed at one day when I grabbed one fast so I could clean off it's infected eye. Between me and another co worker we were feeding them. No idea what happened to them since they tore down the trailer. I didn't keep in touch with anyone after I retired 4 and a half years ago.

July 5th, 2009, 03:21 PM

hazelrunpack
October 12th, 2009, 08:52 AM
Can you gather some of it up and take it to the health dept, Jim? They will be none too pleased if they find out someone is indescriminately leaving poison out. If you gently remind the health dept that young kids don't know to keep their hands out of their mouths, maybe they'll treat it as an urgent case and help get the police on it.

chico2
October 12th, 2009, 08:52 AM

im also gong to make a little note to put out there describing how rat poison works in the hopes that it will make whoever is doing this think a bit

hazelrunpack
October 12th, 2009, 04:32 PM
I still think if you brought in the Health Dept they'd put a stop to it. You can't indescriminately lay out poison in most municipalities--it's just too dangerous for kids. You wouldn't have to mention the cats at all...

Jim Hall
October 12th, 2009, 04:42 PM
is a hloiday here columbus day i plan on calling them tomoorow

its not like they are dumpng it all over jsut little piles where the kits hang out

October 12th, 2009, 07:45 PM
Doesnt matter does it Jim? What if I had a child young and decided I wanted to play outside on the crass? Catn be a good outcome? they have to do something? even if the cats are not mentioned!! :thumbs up

Winston
October 12th, 2009, 07:46 PM
Jim I was just thinking maybe you should look up some of the old bylaws in town and see if there is something obscure you could get them slapped with! you know like back in 1940 it was illegile to kill a salamander? or something like that! really throw them for a loop?

Looking not too good for the G man


So Gray man the tomcat of the hood, is quite bad he has managed to drag himself from whevwver he has been hiding out to where he knows I will see him. HE is just about skin and bones now ,and he can hardly move his back legs he ate about 2 hrs ago and groomed him self a bit and laid back down I have been watching him from time to time but he managed to slip away.. WE have 0 money for a vet except to send him off. So now.? I would like to find a way to do it here G man as far as i know has nevr been taken to a vet .

Winston
June 13th, 2010, 05:56 AM
Awe Jim I am sorry about this. Poor Gman...Do you think Dr Lisa (i think that was her name) would kindly come to the house and send G Man off? It would be less than having to take him in...and besides if its his time then sending him off where he is used to things may make it easier.

Gman is so very fortunate to have you looking out for him! You will be repaid some day my friend! :candle:
