I was aware that our neighbor doesnâ€™t like cat. But didnâ€™t know he could be that mean.
Yesterday when I was placing food on ground in front of the house, he came from nowhere and swept over the food!! I was so pissed off and asked what he was doingâ€¦ He started talking in Spanish.. I told him I could not understand him, he even said this is Florida, if you donâ€™t speak Spanish, go back to you own country.. I never saw any crazy old people like himâ€¦
I asked him why he hates cat so much.. he pointed at his car, saying the cats scratch his car, blah, blahâ€¦ when I tired to verify evidence, he said itâ€™s too dark now.. tomorrow.. And also he said the cats drink from his fountain. From the body language, I guess he would put some toxic stuff in the water, and KILL all the cats drinking there!!
That moment, one of my roommates came out, he said this old man complains everything.. crazy.. And also he agreed with me that the stray cats have been around for a long time.. not just because I am feeding them then they are hereâ€¦ but that sob doesnâ€™t care what we are talking aboutâ€¦
By the way, I told my roomie, I knew he threw pebbles from his back yard when I let my cats (2 strictly in-door cats) playing in the balcony. The first time, when I heard the noise, and tried to talk to him, he just went inside, and hid from me. Then I found 2 pieces of small stone same as those in his back yard. The second time, my husband was home, and saw him ran inside again! But my roomie said next time you just call 911â€¦
And more over, there are about 10 stray cats around. But I have noticed, among these cats, one 3~4 months old kitten lost one leg!! Another cat lost one eye. And I think one other cat has extremely short tail. For sure they were hurt by human on purpose as the damage rate is way too high!!
Bad thing is my husband and me are still students at this moment, sharing this townhouse with other people currently. We donâ€™t have our own house or affordable place for these many cats. And as far as I know, our local shelter is a kill one, over 3 days, no adoption, no life!!
This time it is really outrageousâ€¦ So my question is what shall I do with this sick man, does 911 really help in this kind of issues? Or is there any regulations or whatever law regarding this?
Appreciate all your help!
