About 3 months ago our cat didn't come home. He has had free roam for the last 3 years. I knew where he went and as far as my closest neighbors, they didn't mind at all. He was very friendly, plus kept the mice out. This neighbor lives a few houses down. I didn't know my cat went that far. I have never seen him go or come from there.
Well this night we couldn't find him, but we could hear him. It was about 1030 at night. So we follow the sound. He is in a cage. We couldn't get the cage open so we took it. We were gone the next day, but that evening a sheriff came to the house. Wanting to know if I had that cat and do I know where the cage is. I said I had it because it was late at night and we couldn't figure out how to get it opened. He told me that I could get it for trespassing. That if the man sees the cat on his yard again he was going to shoot it. Huh? This is from the sheriff. The man is a prison guard and is buddy buddy with the law enforcement so I suppose he can do anything. I understand the man not wanting the cat on his property, but he could at least told me. I think putting cat food in a cage is entrapment. But what do I know.
So for the last 3 month we have kept the cat inside. He didn't like it, but I didn't want him shot. . Well it has been 4 days since I seen my cat. He broke thru my porch screen. Yes anything is possible. But he told me straight out that he would shoot it. My daughter did go over and ask, but he said he hasn't seen it.
What am I to do? Nothing.
If I had found a body, I would call the authorities (if it looked like it had been killed). Probably go straight to the ASPCA since he is buddy with the cops I am sure it would be all my fault. The guy is trapping cats...because he don't like them.
