Re: [FH] Re: Blacky died after fight update
- Well.... they might notice but who cares. A couple years ago "Christmas"
was coming to my house and beating on my cats on my front step!!! In
Lincoln, cats have to wear be licensed and are supposed to wear their
tags. After tracking down his owners, the grandmother said "do you want
him?" I said no, I had enough, but I was just trying to find out to
whom he belonged. My next door neighbor really like Christmas, who I
dubbed Joe before I found out his name, and her landlord/stepdad said she
could have a cat. Then, the next week or so my vet was having a
spay/neuter discount clinic so I made him an appointment. I don't think
they missed him overnight but he went straight home the day after. I was
working in my yard when one of the owner kids came by and asked "do you
know who de-balled our cat and licensed him?" I said I did, and that it
was a rabies tag, not a license. The kid said "well he's not even our
cat"!! And I said, "well, your grandma said I could have him." 5
minutes later he came carrying Christmas. Maggie, next door, gave him a
home and he became "Snippy Joe Christmas" and later "Chairman Mao Mao".
He became an indoor cat and lived happily ever after.
So, if you have the money and the law on your side, snip-snip is my
recommendation. It won't bring Blacky back, but all the other cats in
the neighborhood will be better off. If you don't want to do that, then
the Animal Control or humane society may be your best option because they
probably won't let your neighbors reclaim him without being neutered. If
they don't claim him, hopefully he'll be neutered and adopted by someone
who loves cats enough to care.

Ditto, Sue beat me to it. If its a male cat, there shouldn't be a
problem you take the cat in and
doing it yourself. I'm sure they won't notice the cat gone for a day or
two. I've done it.
You will probably never convince your neighbors to neuter their cat.
Probably the only way it would ever happen is if someone else does it
without their permission by trapping the cat and bringing him to a
If someone did want to do that, there are organizations that will do it
for very reasonable prices. I have some nationwide organizations listed
