To Whom it may Concern, As you can see from the time on this email that's is after 3am Saturday morning. I was woken up by these cats; I have a neighbor that as over 5 cats that run wild in the area. Now that part doesn't bother me, but what i do take offence to is that these cats are using my front and backyard as their playground, mating area, and litter box. They latest thing the cats are doing is spraying on the slad of the carport and the tires of my car. Also the screeching in the middle of the night, these animals are disrupting my sleep nightly and effecting my work production. I have tried speaking to the owner of these cats, and got NO where with her, now even thus she's a nice lady Beth is. This is beginning to drive a wedge between the neighbor and the community. I did try calling the Animal Control in Newark, NJ and was told they couldn't assist. I implore you for assistance to resolve this matter, in order for me to take back my yard, neighborhood, community, and sleep. If you need to contact me please call my cell or this email; I Thank You in advance for all your assistance and advice. Humbled, Al
Hello, My name is Deena. Five and a half years ago, I rescued a feral mama kitty and her three kittens, and they have been happily living in my home since, never going outside. On Saturday, Sept. 11, Pearl went missing somehow, although it seems impossible that she would go anywhere near the door, as she is still quite feral along with her mother. The two male kittens have tamed to a great extent. Pearl has never been separated from her mother, and I know she must be very scared now. We need to get her back home. If you see her, please call me. You may just get a glimpse of her, as she is not one to come to a call of her name or allow anyone to pick her up. I have been able to stroke her back, but she slides away if a second hand heads in her direction. She would appear to be unadoptable. As you can see from the pictures, she is quite beautiful. I have received so much joy in watching the beautiful bond she and her mother have. They are constantly at one another's side, grooming one another, playing, walking side by side through the house, sometime leaning on one another as they walk. We miss her so much. We are heartbroken. She is whitish in color with blue eyes a calico tail. She has blue point Siamese ears and markings on her head. Although I set two live traps the day she disappeared, she did not appear. In fact, I have seen no sign of her. She was just gone! I have been putting food out freely all around the house with motion sensitive, night vision camera, but no Pearl. Her home is just north of Woodinville High School. If you see her, please contact me. I am offering a $500.00 reward for her safe return. Thank you so much, and thank you for the great work you do on behalf of these precious creatures. Deena
