Kitten outside gate

Kitten outside gate
Originally uploaded by dawnkua.

There was a complaint about the cats in this house. This is one of the community cats there. When I went by, the adolescent kittens had all been sterilised. I did hear some very young kittens though - the woman I spoke to said they had all been dumped at her place of work. She is fostering them but will be putting them up for adoption once they are old enough.

She also intends to get all the cats there sterilised and her next appointment is in fact on Monday.

Sounds like a very responsibe lady, and seems like she has everything under control.

Just hope that the number of kittens will not overwhelm or over-tax her.

The cats are apparently running into the neighbours' garden and the complainant says they have been trying to grab the fish from her pond and bothering her rabbits.

Such antics will only make me laugh. Don't understand why people take things so seriously. Relax lah!

I guess if your fish are being in the danger of eaten, that you would be worried. Fortunately it seems that the lady with the kittens says she is going to fence up her property. Her entire gate is already fenced actually.

kudos to kitten lady! wish there were more responsible caregivers like her.

unfortunately many ppl can be pretty one sided, just taking care of the kitties (wh is undoubtedly a good thg) but not caring abt how the neighbours feel or if the kitties are being a nuisance to others. in the end it is the kitties who pay the price...

Depends on what fish she has. If it's koi fishes, I doubt the cat can do anything. Kois tend to be pretty big.

My cat likes to sit at the pond and stare at the fishes (and drink from the pond too). I think the fishes got used to her being there after a while.

Depends also on the size of the koi autumnpiglet. I know someone's neighbour who got very upset because he claimed one of their cats ate his fish.

Yes, can understand, if you have a pond of expensive fishes and also rabbits, you also wouldn't want them to come to any harm, from any external forces beyond your control, and you probably would freak out learning that your neighbour has a handful of potential predators who will at no cost come over and "play" with your fishes and "torment" your rabbits.

Hope "kitten lady" will fence up her house real good that the kittens/cats will not be able to run out, so that the neighbours have no excuse at all to say it is the (her) cats

I hope so too - at the end of the day, if every neighbour showed consideration to his or her neighbour, we wouldn't have any problems really! If there was a bit of give and talk, most problems would be readily solved.
