Crap...
Early this afternoon, after Lex, 2, and I came back home after going out to lunch at this sweet little Irish Pub nearby, we pulled up into my mom’s driveway, and right on the corner was a parked SPCA van…



Yeah… Someone snitched on us. Thankfully though, they weren’t too harsh on us. I was freaked right the heck out, and feared the worse: that they would take away all of our kitties and put them all to sleep. :/ And of course it didn’t help that we have this dude temporarily keeping 16 additional cats in our garage until he moves to the country. All they really found was that one of his cats had a bad eye, and they’re giving us until 12pm on Friday to take her to the vet and get it fixed up. They said that someone else would come by on Friday to check that it had been done, but they (thankfully) didn’t say anything about us having to get rid of the animals.

We have a friend who took in cats like we do as well, and when she got caught, they gave her five days to get rid of her animals, but I think that was mainly because she had more numbers than we do, and because her place is an absolute shit hole. Our house really isn’t quite as bad as some places I’ve seen, and the two officers that came over actually said they were really impressed with how good our house looked, and how healthy they all looked for having so many of them. I guess they mainly look for abuse, and they found no abuse here, so I guess they’re not going to make us get rid of them… We’ll find out for sure on Friday though. Here’s hoping. O.x

The SPCA isn't TOTALLY evil and fascist about taking away animals. I hope everything turns out alright. I know you love those animals, wolfgirl. *hug*

And say hi to 2 for me. :P

Yes, they did have Shepherd's Pie. :) And no, we have no idea who snitched. :/ But at least the officers were nice about things.

I hope they don't try and make you get rid of all your cats. I've seen your place, and it's kept up very nicely for having so many kitties. And, I could tell none of the kitties are abused. Otherwise the one missing an eye wouldn't be so fat, or so friendly. ^_^ I assume abused animals wouldn't want to be around people, but most of your cats swarmed me for attention. The rest just sat around and looked at me funny if I tried to pet them. ^_^ So, I doubt they would really have any room to say you had to get rid of them. You're basically just making things a bit easier on shelters by taking in some of the cats that would otherwise go to shelters where they're stuck in tiny cages all day. Your place is better than that by a long shot.

Yep, we have an SPCA here in Canada. :) And well... yeah... we have a fairly large number of animals, but they're all well taken care of... so I don't see why they would take them away, when they're usually more concerned with the well-being of them, not just the numbers.

Jess I talked with A cre w chief at work a subscriber to their news letter if they PULL anything you can vouch to try and get the humane societies for second and third opinions He said they mostly look for illness infestations of parasites and abuse. they'd rather see someoen give thier heart out for animals then neglect.

I'll bet she won't have much of a problem. Based on what I saw when IR and I were at her place, the cats are all very well taken care of. Especially the kitty with one eye. That guy is huge. ^_^ But, most of them like being petted. IR got claws in the crotch for not petting one of the cats. *lol*
