....in their hearts and homes for a 14 yr old female cat? She's in need of a
new home since her owner is moving to a place that won't allow cats. Yes,
I'm FURIOUS about this, but I am doing my darndest to find a forever home
for the cat, since she needs love & attention, and to feel that she won't be
dumped again - ESPECIALLY this late in her life.

Thanks muchly,
Corinne

PS...she's in New England, and I'm willing to transport her pretty much
anywhere within a day's drive, pending approval.

Why can't she find a place that does accept cats? Has she had this cat 14
years?

It just blows my mind to see people disowning their pets just because some
landlord will not allow them. There are a lot of people who will accept and
totally understand that family pets are indeed a part of a family! It's just
like giving your own child up for adoption, in my eyes! I can only imagine
what that poor old thing will be thinking when her owner hands her over to a
total stranger, never to see her again and then have no familar face with
her in last days of life! Yes, animals do get depressed...stress on her old
poor heart, I don't see her lasting too long once she has been given away!

It's good that you are at least trying to find a good home for her..But be
careful, there are a lot of people out there who will take animals with good
intensions but then have other cruel plans for them. Especially people from
the internet! Elderly people are great companions for cats, try posting up
posters in retirement areas or shopping centers.

I hope you find someone to care for her.
Living in Canada and already owning 5 cats myself, I would have taken her or
at least have tried to helping you out if I was in that area but
unfortunately I'm not.
I rescue stray cats in my spare time, so I know how you feel about wanting
to find a good home for her.

Good Luck!

It could be that she has become unemployed, has been evicted from her prior
housing, and is now moving into a homeless shelter.

Given the current disaster unfolding economically in the United States, do
not assume that people have a choice of landlords. The official unemployment
rate using the most expansive definition of "unemployed" is over 11% now.
(Note that the U.S. government has four different definitions of "unemployed",
only statistics related to the least inclusive of those definitions are
widely reported). There are now many people who worked their entire lives,
accumulated possessions and pets under the assumption that they were
contributing members of society who would always be able to find a job...
who now are finding that unless they move to Vietnam and work for $5 a day,
they are SOL, soon to be homeless bums like those that they so despised as
"leeches" only a few short months earlier.

Thanks so much, I agree with you 100% on this lady's behavior. I won't
judge, but I CAN be ****ed off.

In Ontario, the NoPets thing is now illegal by precedent set by the owners
of a cat named Fluffy. I *believe* the precedent comes from a Supreme Court
of Ontario decision in 1996. An elderly couple moved from their house (empty
nesters) and brought their cat along. For a number of years nobody knew they
had a cat (no smell or noise) and then he got out. The neighbours went
ballistic and the landlord threw them out. They went to court, lower court
sided with the landlord. They appealed, and Supreme Court overturned the
decision because they had the cat for years, he was family, and there were
no complaints by the neighbours.

This only applies to rentals in Canada. Even if your lease says no pets,
and many still do, a renter can have pets with impunity. The pets have to
be causing a problem and complaints from other tenants before the animal or
tenant can be forced out.

Owners of condominium apartments, however, are not so protected from bylaws
that the condo corporation enacts. If the bylaws say no pets the owner must
get rid of the animals to stay. If they choose to keep the animal they must
move out and promptly. If they fight, they will lose and the court costs
will be added to their unit maintenance, the corporation could even sell the
apartment out from under them if they persist.

HUH?? What does that have to do with someone giving up a cat and
understanding that a cat is apart of a family? My point was that you
wouldn't give up a family like your child!! A cat is a family member, get
it?
Wow! Someone needs to clue in to certain to examples!

....Actually, I agree 100% about family pets being as important as children -
being loved as much, and not wanting to give up EITHER for ANYTHING...and I
DO have a child.

Thought so what? WHAT IS YOUR POINT??

Any warmblooded person would try to save both obviously or die trying too! I
would, and many animal lovers would agree. If you have no compasionate for
animals you should not be on this board!

Is there any possible way for the owner to buy a house?
Is there a county program to help first time home buyers that the
owner could qualify for? Maybe someone could house all three cats as
a group for a couple of months until a house is found.
My house is a 'doll cottage' size but I get to make the rules (subject
to cat approval, of course).

No, actually, but I'm not even friends with this family, just a person they
called for help with the cat "problem". I have to call them back & see how
the older gal is doing - thanks for all the input!!

ps...Oh, that "Burning Barn" scenario? Both. Period.
