I was at the shelter last night to take a cat out to it's new home. Well we had a cat left outside in a box (again) not even in front of our door, luckily the first person there decided to check it out. Three out of the last four Thursday nights we've had cats left at our door. I'm in Wisconsin & it's the middle of winter what is wrong with people The topper on this one is that someone said they had seen another cat outside that was not in a box. So we were worried, then latter in the evening someone else came in & said there's a cat sitting outside next to your window. So someone went out there & sure enough there she was. They are two girls who we are preety sure are sisters & are front paw declawed. I just don't get what people think is going to happen to a cat left in the cold??? GRRRR I just get so mad, at least in the spring they stand a chance, but in this cold weather an indoor cat has no protection from the heat. We were lucky last night that the second girl stuck around, we figure she got out of the box. We are located off a major street & things could have ended so badly. I just had to rant for a second, but I am wondering what other shelters do to try & stop this from happening? We've got a sign on our door explaining how there aren't always people there.
