Keep us updated!!!
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.
my only concern now, after several PPs have brought up the possibilty, is that the cat wont be there at all when i go. in which case my husband and i have already decided we will also call the police in that situation. it just might make it harder to get my cat back if we dont where she is 🙁
to everyone – i really appreciate all your comments! you are helping me to think of things i might not otherwise have thought of (like printing documentation). And you are all making me feel very empowered. i was very nervous to go over and have a confrontation with her husband last night. and while i was there, i did not have the guts to take the cat and run. when i first got there, i had a small window of opportunity because i was holding the cat and we were talking and being civil. I could have him off guard and ran, but i felt scared and silly to do so. so i decided to try to talk to him rationally and tell him i want to take the cat. that’s when we got into a big argument and he made it clear he would not let me and then my option would have to be physically force my way out with the cat. so i left fuming mad and came up with plan B – which you are all helping me put together, so thanks! i am really glad i decided to post here 🙂 and i will definitely be keeping you updated.i
i am also chuckling at all the funny “she is insane cat woman” comments, lol.
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.
HOWEVER, this still all happened in my mother’s home and care…NOT in me and my husband’s care!!! my husband took care of BOTH cats for five years with NO problems!!! when there was a problem, we took care of it (ie. bladder blockage) and my husband was the one who did not want to leave the cats with a stranger while we moved. one of our options was to fly the cats to the west coast. however, that in itself would have been unpleasant for them only to fly back a year later. so we thought it was okay to leave them with my parents. obviously after what happened, we wished we had done things differently and we were ready to fly them down for the last three months, but then this friend of mine stepped up and offered to take them for a few months. we thought she was doing us a favor!!!!!
((HUGS)) I hope you get your kitty back tomorrow! Stay strong, the bees are here for you! 🙂
Wow!!! Please keep us updated!!!
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.
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?
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.
