I live next to a small block of aged Pensioner units. Every time I look over there I see at least 2 cats that look the same, I once in fact I once saw 6 all the same. It was kind of spooky like something out of Children of the corn. Some of them had Red Collars, some Blue (maybe boys & Girls?)
We have 5 cats here. One lives outdoors as she would never stay inside, One goes out during the day and the other 3 are Indoor cats. We have also seen up to 3 other cats (a couple of Full black ones and a Ginger one) roaming around.
A Couple of weeks ago I was speaking to one of the neighbours in the units and mentioned I had seen all the cats. she said some were hers and some belonged to a lady across the road.
Today I looked in the back yard and saw one of the children of the corn cats I kicked the back door to scare it out of the yard and it just kinda wobbled like it was looking footing on the edging. I went to go out and shoo it and it was not looking well. The fur on it feet & rear looked all matted and messy and it looked like it was Fitting.
I went next door and asked the lady to come and look to see if it was hers or one from Across the road. She advised that it was a kitten from across the road but she had given it to another man in her block of units. I decided to take it to the vet, I advised that I was calling it a Stray as no one would Own up to owning it. The vet called and advised that it could maybe be saved, but they needed to talk to the owners. I told them again that the people I think own it would not admit to it. They just said if anyone did to ask them to call.
The Lady from next door Just came around begging me to call and tell them it really was a stray and to find out what was happening with it. I had to tell her 10 times that if she wanted to know she could call and find out herself but all they were telling me was they needed to find the owner.
She mentioned a couple of time today that she doesn't have any of her cats de-sexed and neither does the neighbour across the road. Originally it was one children of the corn cat (her male) and one of the black ones across the road but be cause neither of them were de sexed they Bred a couple of times. They have twice had Housing Commission come and take cats away and tell them no more cats but they still haven't De sexed them.
This explains more why Our Boys mark all the doors and Windows and pretty much anywhere the smell from her boys comes in.
