Remember when I had the police called on me?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
well here is the reason, she is the sweetiest baby, she had tar or oil all over her that freezing morning when I saw her running down the rode into the airport. this pic was taken earlier tonight, Jace was laying on the ground, he actually got about a ft. away from her~ she is the reason I got the cops called on me a few wks ago. she was the one I had my trap out for, she watched all of it, standing right at the trap door about to go inside, whenever they all pulled up and got out of their cars! she ran under the tree! and watched from afar, I didn't see her for a few days after that! the next time i saw her she was sitting under this plane, so I go there once or twice a day to feed her, others have come out of the wood work, older cats, if I feed and leave they don't let her eat. they chase her off, i saw this one day after i drove off, so x-mas eve morning it was cold, i went to the airport, and there she was alone! yea!! i got a can of wet food and put it out for her, she went right to it, cause it had been a few days since i'd see her, the others came, so I stepped up out of the car and they all ran, she didn't she just kept eating so I decided I would sit there til she got thru eating, the others could eat the dry food i put down for them, but not until she ate hers! well i got a phone call from my cousin from Chicago and we were talking, i looked in my rearview mirror, and guess who? the cops again..... he walks up to me and says 'i heard you are up here trapping cats' and i looked at him, (with my cousin still on the phone) and said 'do you see a trap?' he said, 'you don't
have to get rude with me' I could of spit fire on him if I were capable! I felt like saying,.....don't you have to bust a crackhead or something? or don't you have anything better to do beside harrass me over feeding some poor starving cats! I'm not through with all of this, and whoever keeps calling the cops on me, well that isn't getting the job done....oh and my cousin was crackin up on the phone, he asked me ' are you getting arrested?' ha ha ha!
i told him infront of the cop, 'they want to arrest me but they have nothing on me!' anyway i just finally got a picture of my partner in crime! Isn't she the most precious baby??? she watched that confrontation with the law also!
she's probably thinking, that lady sure does get in trouble alot with the law!!!
SHE'S WORTH IT TO ME!!!hopefully one day she will come home with me for good!!!:love
I just thought of her name....."Runway" what do ya'll think?

I honestly don't believe someone keeps calling the cops on you! There must be cops everywhere to keep finding you! Is there a way you can get a friend to help you and catch the cat by hand when it's eating, rather than trapping it? Or is it too feral?

It seems like this kitty just really needs someone to take it in, and I can't believe the police are being so horrible to you for caring for an animal! It's illegal where I am to feed feral cats or take them in - they're considered pests. We're allowed to humanely kill them if we can get hold of them, but not rescue them. God forbid we help an animal out!

Oh and I forgot to add - that is the CUTEST cat.

I don't understand why the cops are mad at you.
Cats on a runway/airstrip would not be good, so having you move them to safety would be good, right?

Hang in there. It sounds like you are making huge progress. It took two weeks for my son to be able to catch Captain - and she is worth the effort it took.

It's a sad world indeed, when trying to help a poor, sick, helpless animal is construed as being "illegal", but it's ok for the animal's owner to let them roam around in that condition, un-cared for...

Good for you! I would've done the same thing (my mouth gets me in trouble sometimes!). I hope you can finally give this sweet baby a good home.

I know, makes me start to think there might be something else going on at the airport, something alittle shady, if you know what I mean? And yes there is too many cops for the small town I live! I'm hoping with a few more tries, we can catch her, I think she's really wants us too but it's that bit of feral, that holds on to one! But making process, my son took the picture, and he was laying on the ground infront of her about a ft. away, it will happen, ya'll just pray that it does soon!!! Ferals are hard, but if work with a kitten, early on you have lots better chance of having one ! Although I did socialize my mama cat and she was grown here she is

and My Love kitty

they were both pretty feral, Spooky, came from the carwash also, but he jumped in the truck with us! He came home the 2nd day I started feeding them down there!
I always said I would love to live in Austraila, and no offense, but I don't know now, they can govern what happens to the ferals? What am I saying
over here they don't care about them period! no one does it seems to me, not even the jerk that keeps calling the police on me, that is why I think there is something shady going on and they just don't want me to find it out!
If that is true, they are so dumb, because it raised a red flag to me very quick! The way they never bother to walk up to me and talk to me about what I was doing, and calling the law instead! Sounds kinda fishy too me!!

I believe my mouth is what will probably what will get me into more trouble then anything else! I seriously don't believe all of these cats in the area I'm feeding have an owner, and if they belong to the man that called the law, it is neglect on his part for not feeding or having them spay/neutered, and I don't buy that crap about keeping wild cats in a barn or outside cause they keep the mice away! after they multiply several times there are no mice left to eat, so what are they suppose to eat? People here are backwards! my cats kill the mice from the woods, they play with them until death, they don't eat them! That is unless I can catch them on time and I'll pick up my cats and bring them inside so the mouse and get away! Now that I've seen how many cats are really there, and I'm seeing new kittens all the time, I am thinking how do they survive, or how would they survive if I didn't supply some other source of food? All the trash from Grandy's Fried Chicken in the dumpster is the source, but they sure do scarf down the food I leave for them also!! Bless their hearts!!!

they aren't really on the runway or air strip, they are to frightened to be out there, they are staying in a hanger that is closed , they get inside of it at night and sleep, the hanger where I feed them is an open hanger, the plane is chained under a covered stall. I feed them under it so the food doesn't get ruined in the rain and such! I don't understand why they are mad at me either! They are certainly making me mad also! but I'll try to keep myself undercontrol! I thought her name could be "Runway" given the circumstances! whatcha think?

I like "Runway" as a name if you can catch her

By the way.
Your boss probably thinks it's back to work.

So is it ill legal to trap a feral? I don't get why the cops care? I guess being in a fairly large city I can't imagine a cop bothering to find anyone trying to trap cats. They have much bigger fish to fry.

She is a beauty, sending Vibes that she gets in that trap SOON!!!

Awwww! I hope you can catch her soon! I think she's worth all the trouble too!!!

A quick question, have you thought of going to the local police station and introducing yourself to them and explaining what you are doing, etc. That might stop the complaints - if you address the issue before someone calls the police. If you think about the strange things that are happening in and around airports, that is probably why the police have to come out when they receive a complaint. By making them aware of who you are and what you are trying to do, it might make them more of an ally than an adversary.BTW , Runway is really beautiful and I wish you much success if saving this beautiful cat!!!

Ditto!

Most people don't care anymore now-a-days, that's the problem - at least not the ones who are in a position of authority to actually do something..

When it comes to the abuse of animals (or any abuse, for that matter) my big mouth usually does (and has) gets me into trouble. I can usually bide my time and remain silent in most things, but not when it comes to that..

I hope that you can catch Runway soon, and give her a good & loving home. And I agree with the others who have mentioned contacting the cops, to explain the situation. Maybe if they're made aware of the situation, they'll try to help you out, instead of harrassing you everytime they see you at the airport..

~KK~

I think that runway is a perfect name for her!! and she is absolutely gorgeous!! is the plane in the open hanger a small, personal plane? if it is, the hanger might be rented or owned by a person and not the airport. If so, you might could contact the person and get their permission to be there and to trap within their hanger. Then the people calling the cops won't be able to bother you anymore! Vibes for you to catch your new baby!!

great minds think alike Michelle! I have someone checking into that very thing
as we speak! Yes it is a private plane and hanger. So we'll see! thanks for your support,and thanks to everyone's support!! and vibes!!!

Guess what happened tonight???..... Jace almost had her, he walked right up, very slowly and carefully, to her and touched her back! She ran like a scalded ape! I hope it happens soon, tomorrow night is suppose to be around 28 !! I do know that they go in an enclosed hanger, and I'm sure they pile up together and keep warm! But still......
