I hope you get your cat back, and I absolutely second the idea of getting the cops involved.  If anyone who watched my dog tried to take him, nothing on this earth would stop me from getting him back.  I would have already shown up with the cops, because nothing stands between me and my little buddy.  This lady and her husband sound all sorts of crazy.

I am definitely with OP here. I think this couple is crazy. I think that in the end the police will have to be involved.  I will say again that their hearts are in the right place, not their minds. I honestly believe that if OP can prove that they have been taking care of these cats then it will end up being a moot point.

However, playing devil’s advocate here. If any of you took someone’s animal for a few months and it came to you in not so good condition and it’s companion had just died of some illness you would question things too. I am sure that there are people here on the bee that if put in the same situation as this “friend” they would do something similar thinking that this cat had been abused and they were trying to rescue it. Is that the case here? No. But there is certainly a reason for concern on their part. Please keep that in mind and how you would react in their shoes.

Yyyyeah…..crazy. I’m in the “I’d-be-in-there-guns-ablazin'” camp. I’m really looking forward to hearing about your kitties’ triumphant return to you.

@frustrated: I was going to post about this, but you beat me to it. The cats were getting great care in your house, and while it was unfortunate that one of the cats died at your moms, the cat isn’t goin back there, and its probably not due to neglect on your moms part (on the contrary, I bet your mom was giving them extra care while your dad was not there).

((HUGS)) I hope you get your kitty back tomorrow! Stay strong, the bees are here for you! 🙂

The more I think about this the more I think that I would have to add a tally mark to the “girl fight” thread were I in this situation! I’m so sorry you’re going through this, keep us updated!

Jeez, does the cat poop diamonds or something?

It all sounds so ridiculous… I understand it’s easy to become attached to animals, but she needs to say goodbye?  It’s not like the cat is dying or anything.

So bizarre.

this whole thing makes me extremely pissed. FH would break their arms for this kind of fuckery. seriously.

you’re playing it exactly how i would, so kudos! i would probably be on a stakeout though to make sure they didn’t try to move the cat. i REALLY hope you get your kiki back. in addition to the proof of ownership documentation, i’d have a copy of your emails too so that if they do happen to “lose” the cat and you call the cops, it might help your case?

@frustrated: Not to defend the crazy lady as everyone has dubbed her but one of the cats you got from her died while “in your care” at your moms. No offense, but cats aren’t hard to take care of, they kind of take care of themselves. If someone I gave a cat to let the cat die, I would probably think twice about giving them the second one. I would have the best interest of the cat, not the owner. I am not saying you guys are animal abusers or anything, but think of this from her perspective. She thinks she is giving the cat up to a negligent home. She is being overly dramatic ( I have no advice for crazy people), however she has the cat’s safety in mind. Not trying to ruin the witch hunt here but I guess in this situation I have to side with the crazy lady.

at the end of the day both sides have one thing in common the best interests for the cat. i guess the “crazy woman” feels attached to cat, is that so unnatural. she has spent a lot of time with the cat while taking care of it. the cat no matter who u give it to to mind is your responsibility. once she has said her piece although it might be hard to bite your tongue and listen. i would just say thanks for minding my cat and i will take good care of my cat and take the cat. there doesnt have to be a big drama just let them say their bit and pick up the cat when you see it and say you goodbyes. they want the cat to have a good home u know u have a good home reassure them of that. i would think that if u went to them all mad and raging they might feel justified in worrying about the cat.
